Go Home Winter, You’re Drunk

OR Why I live in Florida As I watch one more weather report about one more snow storm up north, I’m thankful that I live in Florida. I realize that might sound weird to some folks.

The Day I Ran Away From Home

What do cartoons have to do with my legal case? My son Jake watches this cartoon called Teen Titans Go.

And since the dumb things get the biggest laughs, … Continue reading

How to be a Better Blogger

A Human State of Mind

My State of Mind School has ended and summer camp has begun. I have great hopes this year for a productive summer. My usual list of things I want to get done is longer than my dog Winston when he stands on his legs and goes counter surfing. Last summer was a disappointment. I had … Continue reading

I want to put on my Boogie Shoes

Dancing Machine So a few weeks ago, I told you about how I found my spark again. I’m literally shaking things up by taking dance lessons. First I got the free 30 minute “let’s see if you have any rhythm and what kind of student you’ll be” session. It was mostly for people who were … Continue reading
