Health advice from a 6 year old

I caught a bug or stomach virus this week.  This morning when I got up to wake the kids, I got taken over by nausea.  Nice post I know but bear with me for a moment. My son goes to the bathroom and says “Daddy, you should throw up.  You’ll feel better if you do.” […]

10,000 BC movie is missing something

I don’t know anything about this movie really, other than if I ever see it, it will be only when it hits cable. I’ve just looked over the trailer and the movie web site looks just fancy enough to not be too slick. The Wikipedia page says the main character discovers a lost civilization. Can […]

Movable Type to WordPress

Over at my brother Stefan’s blog, he’s been running Movable Type for years. It bugged be because his server was slow, the theme was dated, it lacked a good archive page, etc. Mostly I did not like the look or the speed. Stefan takes really good pictures and I thought he should have a web […]
