Whether in speaking or writing, it generally considered a good idea to be brief. I was reading The Edited Life (a blog about writing) again recently, and saw this post. You’ve heard a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Well, this good rant paints a clear picture with just a few words.
As I sit here watching the final minutes of the SuperBowl, one of the things that has made this game more fun has been following the tweets and FaceBook posts as the game (and commercials) have gone on. I don’t know about you, but I’ve enjoyed reading the smack talk from friends near and far, […]
Are you tired of reading every random person’s attempt to show that they are tuned in to the blogosphere? Are you equally tired of the word Blogosphere?

It was “I’ll just take my business elsewhere.” Is there a single company in America that would even […]
The Fourth of July is a wonderful holiday, especially for Americans. Plenty of good food, great times with the family and … uh … lots of explosives! Recommendation: Buy it at full price! (don’t wait for the paperback) Yes, I’m taking the day off from giving a real post. Happy 4th!!!!
