Menstrual Cup? Wow.

I was watching the Sundance Channel a little earlier and there was a show on about Green living. One of the women on the show was at a Tupperware type party and the women were all buying menstural cups. I had no idea such a thing existed. As a man, it’s not really my business […]


Email, Blogging, and Twitter Explained

SVD is documenting his forays into these mediums (where else) on his blog. All of these things mean so many different things to different people. Here’s how I like to describe them… When I send you an email, it’s the equivalent of me inviting you over to the house for a cup of coffee. We’re […]


Community Standards

First of all, a few housekeeping items… Thanks to all of the new readers I’ve picked up in the past couple of days for subscribing. Nothing like a naked chick in a public park to boost readership, huh? And thanks to all of my readers who were with me long before this latest bit of […]


Defining Moment of the DNC So Far?

I think this interview after Hillary Clinton’s speech last night was some of the best political television I’ve seen in a long time. Off the cuff, heart felt, and honest. Try finding that anywhere else at a big party convention. Still, it’s a little troubling to see people put so much faith in one person […]


From Bartlett Grove Park–Another Naked Idiot

I’ve commented here before about how stupid you must be to allow someone to film you naked and not keep the one and only copy for yourself. Common sense risk management should tell you that it may end up on the internet. But letting someone photograph or film your privates in a public place with […]


Recycled Post For Parents With Elementary Aged Kids

I promise I didn’t plan on doing this–I just happened upon this post form last year with tips on evaluating your kids’ teachers, and I thought it was a good time to bring it up again since school has just started back.  This is one of the few posts I’ve written that I think may […]


Man Up Nine-Year-Olds!

My buddy Greg sent me this article at ESPN about a 9-year-old boy in Connecticut who has been told his 40 mph fast ball makes him “too good” to pitch in his baseball league.  Teams have refused to play when he pitches, and his team is being disbanded at players redistributed to other teams. But […]

Big Party Conventions Are So Boring

Too many big screens, flashing lights, and high quality sound systems. This is what politics looks like on vacation. This is enjoying politics as a show when you want to get away from it all. It’s as if Disney took over the whole process…it’s all too polished. It’s made for prime time politics. I watched […]

McHillary For President!

This is funny.  There’s nothing more entertaining than some pissed off Hillary supporters.  Check out the photo of the woman wearing the Hillary t-shirt and McCain button. “I’d like to see a McCain-Hillary ticket to tell you the truth. And there’s nothing that would please my soul more than to see Obama lose. He’s talking […]


Is There a Pro-Technology Candidate Out There?

CNET has a pretty interesting article on Joe Biden’s less than stellar record on technology: By choosing Joe Biden as their vice presidential candidate, the Democrats have selected a politician with a mixed record on technology who has spent most of his Senate career allied with the FBI and copyright holders, who ranks toward the […]
