There’s always a price to pay for not backing up a computer

I’m either too trusting or just plain naive. Naive, that’s a polite way of saying stupid. I haven’t checked, but I think it’s politically correct to use “stupid” when referring to one’s self. You techno-geeks have probably...

Moving a piano cross country without a scratch is never easy?

My sister was insistent. There would be no better time. And because she’s older than me, well, like a good, dutiful little brother, I did as I was told. I bought a plane ticket. Actually, the airfare...

It only took me 31 years, but I’ve finally found the girl I’ve been looking for. She’s got dark hair and big brown eyes. She’s very affectionate, though she does tend to drool. She’s got a cold...

Yep, I admit. I’m a grown man who loves to read comic books

I’ve been an adult for a few years, and I’ve realized that while your responsibility grows, who we really are generally remains unchanged. The things that filled us with wonder and entertained us as children still can,...
