After nearly 16 years, Katie and I finally traded in her Stratus and became a Two-Sonata Family. Say hi to Finn. He's named for John Boyega's character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens because Katie and I feel the front... Continue reading

I found this one browsing through my Flickr account. It dates back to March 26, 2010, and features Katie with Olympic gold medal skater Evan Lysacek and his Dancing With the Stars partner Anna Trebunskya. I always liked this photo.... Continue reading

I don't trust polls either. But it was just an interesting observation. As for the election, the only thing we know is that we know nothing. This is a scary year. And it seems like the only people who are comfortable with how it's going are those people who don't normally vote and are fired up to finally do so this year.

If you only knew how much has died back there. The berm doesn't retain water so almost all vegetation we've planted in there has died. This one lone bush has survived though and that's what we bought four more of to plant hoping for the same luck. We've killed ferns and hostas and lilies. Actually not us so much as the animals that roam through there. But it feels like our failure. And grass! Lots of grass.

I can deal with those annoyances given the variety Spotify has. I like it a lot.

I thought maybe I was overreacting but then I saw all the cars lining both sides of the street and realized its way too easy to be sideswiped.

If I was the only web person, it still would be sketchy at best. Since I'm one of a half dozen now? Not even a snowball's chance in hell.

Only if it can be contained in a fishbowl or hamster cage. Since not having a pet, mine and Katie's allergies are horrible.
