AT&T Rollover Plan Pisses Me Off I have two teen daughters who live with their mother who lives in the middle of nowhere and doesn’t have wifi. So when my two daughters’ phones renew each month, they start watching YouTube videos and God knows what else until we start getting warnings from AT&T about how […]

McDonald’s Archenemies: The Protagonist v Antagonist  The new McDonald’s commercial, Archenemies, is a great 60-second spot all aspiring writers should watch again and again. Why?

The service. […]

Southwest Airlines and Early-Bird Check-in As I said in the previous post, I LUV to fly Southwest Airlines. I have friends who work there, too, and the culture is admirable. But I have an issue with the whole Early-Bird Check-In scheme they’re running. To me it’s below the cultural integrity established long ago by the […]

My Great Pyrenees Maycee At 10 Weeks Life has certainly changed around here the past week with the addition of Maycee, our now 10-week and two-day old Great Pyrenees.
