This may not come as a surprise, but I HATED my last job. I was a property Accountant for a small Family owned business that developed and owned large retail shopping centers all across the metro area here. The company was run by the kids of the founder, all in their 50's and the ultimate definition of born on third…

So, your team was in the top 10 for the draft this past year. How did they do? Let’s take a moment to review:

While in Genesis, Peter Gabriel cared more about the presentation than he did the music. You could barely hear his lyrics over the fox or alien costumes he would wear on stage. He had to go. Collins was already doing all of the backup vocals anyways. The choice was made to make Collins the lead vocalist and bring on a…
There are a few things in this world that I have an (arguably) irrational hatred towards. I hate maple syrup. I hate Norman Rockwell paintings.

Well, it’s that time of year again! Time to drink while the kids walk around doing their thing. I’m a creature of habit, so I’ll probably be drinking some hard apple cider with the spooky tree.

Let’s just get this ball rolling.
I use a text-to-speech program called ReadPlease. It is old and hasn’t seen updates in years. But I try to keep its word pronunciation list up to date and sounding as close to correct as possible. A lot of time has been invested in this, so much that it would be a chore to adopt a newer program and give it the same…
In an unexpected press conference Monday afternoon, General Motors CEO Mary Barra somberly took responsibility for four recent, powerful Atlantic hurricanes as part of an elaborate marketing ploy.
