When Rabid Spider Monkeys Attack...

Wow, another month in DC has come and gone. November 7 will mark 5 months working at W*USA 9 - almost half a year! - and Oct. 30th marked my child being 3 months old. 3 months! Whoah.

This has been an odd arrangement...being a dad but not being able to "be a dad"...after all, you'll see from my latest pics that I added to the Photos section of the website (don't forget to go there and check em out) that this little baby is HAPPY! Wow, can she smile.

Meanwhile, I've been experiencing all the joys of managership with the paperwork, appraisals, budgets, interviewing new candidates, and other assundries. All the while trying to code a current website...design a new one...and get ready for Election Tuesday. It's upon me, which means a VERY long day...I might as well be ready to sleep up here...and that may happen. Vote and pray. Pray that God's Will be done and that the election process will be smooth and decisive.

As for the subject of this post...I just liked the sound of it! ;)

I'm not sure if many of us have forgotten but more likely we're so very distracted. We've navigated almost two years of a pandemic that's taken and changed so many lives. We've navigated political and cultural changes poorly and emotionally to the point of creating more divisions.  We are not the country we were the weeks and months after 9/11. The bipartisan efforts then were refreshing. The amount of American flags flying proudly and in solidarity was inspiring. Today, it seems many despise their own country and its flag. But even this is not new. While she has stumbled over the years and will continue to do so - America will always be the most amazing country in the world. It

Why The Hate For Jon & Kate?

This is a bit odd for me to write a post about "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The only reason I watch the show is if Kim has Netflixed a season (we don't get TLC) and I'm relaxing with her. Kim's a fan of it and has read Kate's book. But why this post? This family lives in our neighbor-state Pennsylvania, Kim and I concluded that Jon's personality is very similar to mine, and I'm sick of all the trash about them on the web and in the blogosphere.

What A Year

With a new year, looking forward and backward is important. Looking ahead is important to set goals and milestones of what to accomplish in the coming year. Reflecting on the past year is important to consider areas of growth and areas needing improvement. Looking back on 2017, it's hard to ignore that I've been in the swamp of a layoff for half of it. December marked 6 months since the last day of work at AOL and 4 months since separation from the company. So, what are some lessons I've learned from this journey?
