I saw something today that really ticked me off and I should have said something about it at the time but I hesitated and didn’t. I was at the local Round Lake Beach grocery store that rhymes with pool and I was waiting in line behind an older lady. She was probably in her 60′s […]

Before I go any further…always always always backup your database and wordpress files before making changes! Don’t blame me […]

This has got to be the most enormous lady bug that ever existed! I’m betting it was the subject of some government experiment gone horribly wrong. When I left for work this morning I noticed this thing hanging above my front door. I was about 15 feet away and it looked like a leaf or […]

And in the latest stage of this war, yesterday, Governor Quinn signed into effect bill HB3659. Thereby, making it to the top of my “What A Jackass” list. For those of you that don’t […]

Letter To Eric & Kathy On The Mix

February 11, 2011

I’ve been waking up late in the mornings recently. It’s a re-occurring problem I have unfortunately. Some days I can wake up early and others I can sleep through all four alarms.
