Uber, that cab thingy

October 26, 2012


I’ve been thinking about politics a lot lately.  Not sure why, just one of those topics that enter the brain seemingly for no reason, in the fall, about every four years.  As a result, I start thinking about government in general and how it runs (or doesn’t). While this stuff was on my mind, I […]

What a difference a word makes

It’s Monday following Hurricane Irene and I’m reading facebook posts, twitter tweets, blog posts and news stories and it hits me.

ActiveRain is insignificant

April 1, 2011


I went to ActiveRain today.  I can honestly say I have never been there before.  I hear the collective gasp.  I went because Real Trends (they have a new website, check it out) links to a few posts there from its newsletter so I thought I should at least click.
