Picture it... There is a pile of logs in front of you. And each needs to be sawed in half. So, you put one up on the block and make short work of it. The next one takes a little longer, but you keep going. Soon, it's obvious you're not... Continue reading

Yesterday afternoon, I was talking with a co-worker. Just chit-chat really. Exchanging stories about where we grew up, our families, etc. I didn't realize until after the conversation that I could remember virtually nothing about the other person (think about the recon I'll need to do to re-discover this information...
