Shameless Self Promotion!

Today I have no real topic. I find that on occasion I am blocked and not feeling passionate about any thing in particular. On those days, the blog articles do not flow freely. This is one of those days. I woke up early this morning and realized that I had not become inspired to pontificate …

Thanksgiving Day 2013

Thanksgiving 2013
