Anyone Know About Welding

Funny how certain life circumstances can force you to become an expert in things that you never even thought about previously. The super obvious example there in having children, obviously…no one gets to have any practice at that one. You just do it and learn along the way like everyone else. But now I know …

Termites Are Eating My Inheritance!

Nothing like a bit of bad news to deflate a bubble of unchecked excitement over owning real estate. In this case, the news in question concerns the structural integrity of the house that I’ve recently inherited from my late great aunt (I’m her youngest relative, and therefore the most deserving recipient, apparently). I knew the …

Trust Isn’t Helped by Needles

You know you’re in for a great time when you show up at a team-building exercise morning (which are now weekly, by the way) and the new motivational speaker starts with “I know trust falls are clichéd, but we’re going to make them fun again!” Their method of fun was to make us fall after …
