We are slowly moving into our new house. We’re taking things slow. On most days, we’ll move 5-6 boxes worth of stuff, shove it in an unused room and then paint or clean various walls, floors, sinks, counters, shelves, etc.
The previous owners were only there for maybe 7 years, max, but holy hell did [...]
And that’s not me speaking in hyperbole to get a couple extra clicks, either. Will you agree? I guess we’ll find out in a few minutes.
Not too long ago, Dutch Card Guy and I worked out a trade for some of my Topps Minis. He was working on the set and I was able to [...]
How about those Bulls, huh? Congratulations to them for beating the Miami Heat and ending their remarkable streak. It’s no 72-10 record, but Miami’s run was still quite amazing.

How many of you have been able to watch any of the World Baseball Classic? I’ve caught a few innings here and there. Any baseball is good baseball. I could take or leave spring training in terms of “seeing young talent prove themselves.” The only important aspect that applies to the regular season is “Injured: [...]
We’re only a week or two removed from the biggest dog show of the year. Banana Joe the Affenpinscher took away Best in Show. Now he gets to make the rounds in the media and across the country to various other smaller dog shows.
Sort of like the one that’s happening in Chicago this weekend. [...]
