The Law (©2015)

Okay, so this is the type of craziness that bugs a lot of people. Of all documents, I can think of no other publication that justifies being in the public domain more so than the set of laws and regulations we use to govern ourselves. Developed by elected representatives at the expense of taxpayers, these […]

Straight From the Horse’s Mouth

Lately around my house, you’ve heard a lot of talk about the Gorilla, the Manx Missile and the Terminator. No, they are not the latest Marvel superheroes to appear in a summer blockbuster. The biggest bicycle race in the world is occurring, and our family huddles around the TV every evening absorbing the racing drama […]

CAUTION: Selfie Stick In Use

One of the more interesting realizations I had a parent is that you have to tell your kids everything. I mean EVERYTHING. Those little minds come home from the store full of mush. If you don’t start shaping their behavior right from the start, you will be astonished by what actions (or inactions) are deemed […]

Kinlyn’s Comet Vacation

Kinlyn’s Comet Vacation

On November 12, 2014, The European Space Agency (ESA) Philae lander touched down on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This event marked the first time that man-made object soft landed on a comet. As is common for such spectacular firsts, everything did not go as planned. The Philae lander took a hard bounce on the initial touch […]

Everything That Has a Motor

Everything That Has a Motor

As the summer temperatures warm up, so does the drudgery of yard work. Every weekend, the Do-It-Yourself crowd heads out into the yard in a futile attempt to keep the spring gardens blooming. But as the calendar moves into late June, and the temperature starts hitting 90 well before noon, the enthusiasm wanes. The cost-benefit […]

Keeping Up

Keeping Up

Every Monday morning, our team starts the day with a quick stand-up meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to provide team members the opportunity to give shout-outs, call-outs or watch-outs to the rest of the team. On occasion, I also take this time to talk about the team’s direction. The direction of our team […]

The X Factor

The X Factor

For as long as anyone can remember, the number 10 has been synonymous with greatness. Why that would be, I don’t know. On its surface, 10 is just another number, the one that comes between 9 and 11. Sure it might have a few neat qualities. It’s the first two-digit number in the base 10 […]

Just Relax Already

Just Relax Already

Ah, what a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! While I know that not everyone could take a vacation day, I hope that you were able to spend time with your loved ones, say a prayer for those that gave their life protecting our freedom and just take moment to slow down an put things back in […]

Onward March the Robot Army

Onward March the Robot Army

It’s another year in the books. The school year rapidly comes to a close over the next couple of weeks. This is the time of year when families rush to finalize their vacation plans, teenagers begin their summer jobs and virtually everyone else starts dreaming about a long weekend or two at the lake. Summer […]

Vinyl Is Back

Vinyl Is Back

It’s funny how names stick. It’s been more than 30 years since the introduction of the CD and 15 years since the height of Napster, but when it comes to music we still talk about records. Young musicians are still looking to sign a record deal, and bands still get a gold record for big […]
