Whatever Happened to Civilized Debate?

I'm old enough to remember watching President Reagan & President Carter on prime-time television debating over key issues. I can remember the Iranian Hostages and how we went to bed each night praying they would be returned to their families here in the US. It didn't matter which side of the aisle you were on, we shared a common interest. I can … [Read more...]

Facebook’s 5k Friend Limit…

This past week I bumped into something I had no idea I would ever bump into... 5,000 friends. For some reason they have this limit in place that only allows people to have 5k friends w/ their personal profiles. This limit has been in place for a long time and I haven't seen any updates in the media where they intend to change this policy. I … [Read more...]

Update on Donna…

I've had a lot of people ask so I thought I would update the blog w/ our latest reports from the doctors regarding Donna's kidney failure.
