Beam Me Up

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

When you were a kid, remember watching the Twilight Zone or Star Trek or the Jetsons and wondering if any of those cool gizmos they had would ever be invented?

You’ve Got a Friend

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Yes; I watch Glee. And I’m not ashamed. Deal with it. It makes me think of when I was in high school and how important my friends were back then. Not just important; they were the MOST important thing to me. How many of us still have those kind of intense, symbiotic relationships? (more…)
