The French Kiss is Dead

I’m not talking about that type of French kiss, though I suspect it may be impacted as well. No, I’m referring to the effect the virus formerly known as Swine Flu is having on the French custom of “la bise”. You know, the way the French greet their friends, family and coworkers. La bise starts …

Are You a Hat Person?

Have you ever noticed how some people look great in hats, and on others they simply look silly? I’m not really sure if I’m a hat person or not, as I’ve never much had the desire to cover up my lovely head of hair with a hat. Oh, did that sound vain? Sorry, but knowing …

Sleeping on the Job?

Do any of you sleep on the job? Do you wish you could? With a six-month-old baby at home neither my wife nor I are always getting a full night’s rest. Sometimes I’m so sleepy at work I think if I could just close my eyes and snooze for 20 minutes it would really help. …

Scarborough Renaissance Festival

My wife, I and our wee baby girl have visited Scarborough Renaissance Festival near Dallas several times this year. We always find it quite entertaining… and it’s almost over. So, join the King and Queen and all the villagers and guests on this the final weekend of Scarborough Renaissance Festival before the gates close on …
