In this day and age, when corporate profit trumps customer service by those very companies, I love hearing stories about great service.

I like showers. I like the feel of hot water pounding at the base of my skull and rolling down my shoulders and back. Closest to a massage I’ve ever had. It just sucks how much water you waste taking a shower.
Several years ago, I was having a bad day at work when I got a random email that I almost didn’t read. But I did.
When someone first mentioned that Cloak & Dagger was coming to TV, I expected a remake of this...
I gotta admit that when I decided to get back into collecting audio cassettes, it would be easier than it has been to amass my collection.
I’m unsure whether that happy middle ground between easy Macro Monday and tough Macro Monday will be discovered this week. I guess we’ll see, won’t we?
For some strange reason, YouTube wouldn’t accept the title of this video. Just kept telling me it wouldn’t accept the data upload.
To the planners and participants in today’s March For Our Lives, my unyielding awe and unwavering support.
Nathan cracks me up sometimes. Alright, not “sometimes” so much as “more often than not.” His latest? He wants a set of what he calls “battlebots.”
Since I recently celebrated my 20th anniversary of online journaling/blogging, I thought a cool #ThrowbackThursday might be to share some of my old blog banners. It's possible I've done this before, but oh well. Isn't that what #ThrowbackThursday is all about? Reminiscing?
It kinda makes your day pretty amazing when you see a completely random public comment like this from a friend...
The final lineups for the Pitchfork Music Festival have been announced and my mind has been made up, even more so than it was before.
Last week’s challenge photo was too tough...
Last Tuesday, Nathan asked me where the camera was on my iPhone so I showed him. He snapped these. I had no idea until I found them the other day.
Thanks in no small part to Hrishikesh Hirway’s latest episode of the Song Exploder podcast, I’ve been really digging on Ludwig Göransson’s score for Black Panther.
Do you take part in NCAA Men’s Basketball “March Madness” Tournament brackets? I do. I have for several years. I don’t always do well.
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this Saturday, how about this photo of Katie and I when we went out with my brother and his fiancée and a neighbor back in 2006?
It started with this simple declaration written on March 14, 1998 and posted the next day once I found a reliable connection:
Guess what’s happening on Saturday, April 21 that has me completely stoked?
Wayyyyyy too many people got last week’s challenge photo. So many I’m not even sure who was first. Kind of a waterfall effect. I post; everyone guesses.
For the first time since I was a teenager and Dennis Miller headed up “Weekend Update,” Saturday Night Live has become can’t-miss viewing each week.
There’s nothing like having several restaurants tell you that the wait is more than an hour, having others tell you they aren’t accepting walk-ins, and discovering that some you thought were open had closed down to kinda ruin your impromptu night out with your wife.
Katie and I just wrapped up watching season 1 of HBO’s Big Little Lies. Up until we watched it, this show was simply that show that I’d never heard of until it was all over the Emmys and SAG awards and I was left figuring I’d just never see it, like so many other shows.
Got a double dose of #ThrowbackThursday for you today.
Last night, Nathan woke up early. Like midnight early. We’re pretty sure his six year old molars are to blame. So I went in to help lull him to sleep.
After taking last year off, I’m making a triumphant return visit to the Pitchfork Music Festival this July.
I really wish timestamping of comments in social media was better. I had a correct guess on Facebook at almost the same time as a correct guess cane through on Instagram. I guess both Stef and Christa win.
I type this as Katie and I watch the 90th Annual Academy Awards show. We’re still watching despite having zero familiarity with the nominees (and winners, thus far) in the big 6 categories in these specific films. Don’t believe me?
Back in mid-January, I posted about a project Katie and I started involving an old oak door. It’s been a while since I’ve updated you all and we’ve finished it, so would you all like to see the result?
Check out what I dug out of obscurity the other day.
Time to recap my February goal work. You ready? Let’s do this!
