Was Anyone Even Thinking?

Posted by mcm0704 on August 24, 2009 |

Ellen Goodman of the Boston Globe is one of my favorite columnists. I don’t always agree with her, but that’s okay. It isn’t a columnists job to write only what people will agree with — if that were even possible. A columnist’s purpose is to stimulate discussion and civil debate — the operative word here […]

Enjoying the Day

Posted by mcm0704 on August 23, 2009 |

Something Different

Posted by mcm0704 on August 13, 2009 |

It’s been kind of a crazy day. Was waiting most of the day for people to come and install new flooring, and they got hung up on another job. Kind of disconcerting when you make plans and arrange your life around something that doesn’t happen. Plus, I was offline most of yesterday due to cable […]
