You don't want to mess with my neighborhood.

Earlier today the Lovely Louise was riled up. About two months ago she hired a new pool company, and they were doing a very nice job. They told her they would send her a bill after the first month so she could set them up o...

Once again its time for that annual Rite of Spring—the NCAA Basketball Tournament! Yes, I know its called March Madness, but the Lovely Louise changed the name a couple of years ago and now I can’t stop calling it Mad Marchness.

I was a very good student back in the day when I was in school. Straight A’s, top of the class, the whole enchilada. In my entire life I only flunked one course—accounting.

I don’t understand accounting. I still say that they put debits and credits on the wrong side....

Today is grocery day. Visitors from the frozen north are arriving tonight and tomorrow, and I’m assuming they’ll want food when they get here. After I write this blog, its off to the grocery store to lay in enough supplies to feed the invading hordes.
