Happy Birthday to You Happy Birthday to You Happy Birthday Dear Alex & Sarah Happy Birthday to You.

Making your way in the world today Takes everything you’ve got; Taking a break from all your worries Sure would help a lot. Wouldn’t you like to get away?

Please forgive me for not having updated you on any of the new TV shows that have premiered as of late. This pesky job of mine keeps me busy. They seem to think that because they pay me, they can tell me what to do all day long. They are old-fashioned that way. So while I’ve got some time today, I wanted to tell you all about a show that premiered recently on HBO that is fantastic. It’s one of my new favorites. The Brink on HBO starring Tim Robbins and Jack Black is well worth your ...Click for More

Ah Reddit. Most of the time you are the cesspool of the internet where thoughtful discourse and open discussion on the topics of the day go to die in a sea of cat meme’s and dick jokes. Every now and then though, if you are persistent, you might stumble on something on Reddit that is worth seeing and you remember why you keep going back there even though you know you are going to hate yourself for it. For me one of the good times came today when I stumbled on this video from Chris Wylde. ...Click for More
