Yesterday, on my way to pick up my daughters from school, I was reminded of how simple things can make such a difference. It’s these little things that keep me grounded and remind me of how great this country is. It was hot yesterday, and my air conditioner in my car is messed up. I […]

Hey everybody, I just got back from the grocery store (with 4 kids I’m there daily), and while walking up and down the aisles, I realized there’s still a lot of supermarket taboos I haven’t clued you in on. So in this installment I’m going to talk about some things that don’t necessarily fit in […]
