It’s Miller Time

Friday at the office, I was midway through a scintillating article on endoscopic sinus surgery when one of my content writers said, “We have to start working Saturdays now?!”I had no idea what she was talking about until I opened my email and saw the following gem from upper management. With the start of the 2ndContinue reading “It’s Miller Time”

Did I Kill Glenn Frey?

A couple of weeks ago, I came across an article that stated David Bowie had announced he would no longer be touring. And then his new album came out.

OK, in all fairness, my wife and I hadn’t met up for lunchContinue reading “Wildfire on a Windy Day”

Zeppelin Had Coda

I apologize for my recent absence from Blogville. Work has been kicking my ass lately. We’ve been busy for months, but that has really ramped up these past few weeks. Considering that the company has tripled in size in the nearly three years I have been there, this isn’t exactly a shock. Sadly, they areContinue reading “Zeppelin Had Coda”
