Elves Hack Website, Claim Santa Is Myth

So, I'm smack in the middle of holidays. Thanksgiving came and went quickly...now Christmas is in a couple of weeks. Whew! Sadly, I'm still a man without a country...errr, well...at least a home to call my own.

The Jackson house has been on the market since mid-September...which isn't bad for Mississippi. Up here, that's pretty bad. Homes are sold in a week...two weeks is considered slow. However, I remain true to the belief that all things happen for a reason and a season...God's got a plan.

Georgia continues to grow. I've added three new pics to the Photos section...be sure and select the "Show All" function to be certain you see them all. She's eating baby food now...and jibber-jabbering up a storm. Thankfully, I'm going to Jackson tomorrow and will be there all next week, working from home. Then, we three will return to DC and I'll be off Christmas week. Two weeks straight will be the longest I've been around my two women. It'll be very refreshing.

The job continues to be intense. Management is fun but not as fun as actually working on and coding the site...something I seemingly don't get a great deal of time to do. However, I have a full and awesome staff and once everyone is in the groove, we'll be functioning like a well-oiled freak machine! Wooo!

In case I don't get to speak or see some of ya while in Jackson or anytime soon...a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ya!

More to come...

May We Never Forget

On this 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, I'm posting below a story I wrote on the 10th anniversary. These are my reflections on that day.  Looking at the first paragraph, it's interesting how times change. No one has asked me questions of where I was or what I was doing. 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?
