Now that I am gleefully enrolled in Harvard University it comes with great social responsibility.  I'm having to upgrade Sealy's rugby team after photography class.  Ta-Ta.

Every year one can buy used treadmills around February 15th when they start flooding the market and the price goes south.  Then in December....

I am hoping the Evangelical Inaugural Prayer doesn't go like this:  Dear Lord, let him grab whoever he wants, wherever he wants. That's what he says he likes to do. In the name of Jesus.  Amen.

My life is just getting more and more exciting. I've noticed instant, spontaneous, exhilarating mental vacations occur in the middle of my conversations occasionally.  Wonder where I go?

Funny.  As a child, I had little interest in learning about bots.


My son's high school graduation ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel from fancy school years ago. After careful reflection, I want my money back.

President_Barack_Obama495px-Donald_Trump_by_Gage_SkidmoreThere are an interesting set of polls out this week. President Barack Obama appears to be leaving office with one of the highest exiting polls of American presidents at 58 percent while President-elect Donald Trump has hit the lowest at 40 percent.  Polls change and Trump has already attacked the polls as rigged against him.  However, these polls can have a pronounced impact among members of the GOP who may be uncertain about the degree to which they will follow the lead of the White House on changes to taxes, immigration and other areas.

200px-Cnn.svgThe Democratic establishment has been pushing hard on a new narrative that Hillary Clinton lost not because of her record negatives polling going back years on truthfulness or the desire of the voters for an non-establishment candidate or the baggage carried by Clinton into the election.  Rather, it was the hacking by the Russians with a bit of help from FBI Director James Comey, according to this universal spin.  The media has assisted to a degree by referring to the "Russian hacking of the election," which is obviously not true.  The election was not hacked. No voting machines or tallies were hacked.  Emails were hacked and none of those emails appear to have been altered. They were real emails showing highly dishonest conduct by key players.  Despite the virtual mantra from Washington, voters are clearly not buying it.  A new CNN/ORC poll shows roughly 8 out of 10 voters do not believe that the hacking changed the outcome of the election.
