If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy.

Today I’d like to wish Cougar’s older (but younger looking) sister Marie a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!! We hope she has a GREAT day!

A few weeks ago, The Wife and I went to an event hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association for Team Captain’s (and their guest). While there, I was approached and asked if I would be interested in being part of an Ad campaign the Alzheimer’s Association was running in The Charleston City Paper leading up to the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s. I was told someone would email me and all they would need from me was a picture and a short (3 – 4 lines) of why I walk. Sounds pretty simple, right? As we left, I realized that while this will be the 10th Walk I’ve participated in (back when I started, it was called the Memory Walk), I really had no idea why I walk. I’d never really thought about it. I started because people in my office were doing it (back then I worked in an office that did Alzheimer’s research) and it just clicked for me. I’m not sure when the Ad will be in the paper (sometime within the next few weeks), but when it is I’ll be sure to share it on here.
