How To Know If You Are A LEARN-A-HOLIC?

I have taken a ton of classes over the years.  Many of the classes were just to gain extra knowledge in a specific area.  The funny thing about me is that I never received an actual degree for anything.

HAVE YOU CUT THE CORD, and how does it feel?

Yesterday I did something that was more traumatic for me than I knew. I cut the cord, which is just another way of saying we decided to cancel our TV service. We did this for several reasons: 1.

WERE YOUR FOLKS BRILLIANT?

My last post got me thinking about my parents a lot.  They supported us in so many ways, especially in ways that we never even knew.  The last bit of my last blog talked about why I do not do major alcohol.  This was formed by my parents and a well-played evening on their part. … Continue reading WERE YOUR FOLKS BRILLIANT?
