Happy New Year

on December 31st, 2009 by mark

Does it go without saying? Well, no. No it doesn’t. So, a very Happy and Blessed New Year to you all. May 2010 be prosperous and joyous and may you find the blessings you need, if not the ones you want. Peace-

Inward and Onward

on December 30th, 2009 by mark

Uncle Doug just left. He’d been here since Christmas Eve and before that, we were all together in Phoenix since the 21st, so it was actually a little hard to see him go. We’ve had a great time together culminating in yesterday’s cruise up the Coast with Peanut in tow to Santa Maria to visit […]

Self-Delusion as Public Policy

on December 28th, 2009 by mark

This is why I need a job where I don’t get so much time off. When I do get time off, I tend to read a lot of columnists whom I like. They come from different backgrounds, some are conservative, some are not. Christopher Hitchens, of course, while no conservative, is existentially correct on the […]

A little Revolution now and then is a Healthy Thing…

on December 27th, 2009 by mark

This article surprised me. More than its call to action, or questioning whether or not there should be one, it lays out in a very matter of fact and non-nutter way that our Federal Government has failed us. And it has failed us in ways that are too numerous to count. This isn’t a conservative […]

Coming Home

on December 23rd, 2009 by mark

Just home from Arizona after driving over on Sunday. A little Christmas-cheer to spread with the family and in short order, saw brothers, nephews, niece, mom, dad and dad’s wife, Joanne. Had a great trip and won’t go into detail as to do so would bore those of you with your own family stories and […]

Home Matters

on December 19th, 2009 by mark

2009’s Christmas break is underway. As we like to say in the multi-culti, tolerant, tree-hugging, uber-sensitive teaching profession–it’s Christmahannakwanzadan. That about covers the major winter solstice holidays in western religions theme. Don’t want to offend anyone, you know? This is an odd time for the Storer family. Since I’ve announced we are adopting, it’s all […]

A Short Winter's Nap

on December 17th, 2009 by mark

Thursdays are usually Happy Hour days-they have been for at least the past 20 some years or so. But I am taking December off from Happy Hour to save money, to be honest and that has allowed me to be around the family on these evenings which I have enjoyed. In light of this, we […]

Algore lied. Again.

on December 15th, 2009 by mark

Perhaps it seems like piling on and I suppose that’s probably what it is. But when I read yesterday that Algore bored the Copenhagen-ites to death by predicting that the North Pole sea ice would disappear in 5 to 7 years, I thought, “this guy will stop at nothing, including making predictions for which he […]
