February was black/African American history month. Thanks Disney Junior for bringing up a whole can of worms for me to deal with in the middle of the day, you know when I have nothing going on..! My 6 year old looked at me blankly, said “Doc is African American?” and.. silence. Talk about having to […]
One of the NABLOPOMO topics from earlier in the month was to talk about your favorite holiday memory. Many things I remember aren’t ‘good’ per se, just memorable.

I don’t ‘share’ my personal scores, I don’t ask for ‘help’ from people that don’t play the game, and in general I don’t ‘post’ about the game, either. I started playing word games but my newest obsession is Candy […]
