It Was a Busy Weekend, Full of Stuff and Work

This entry is part 97 of 100 in the series Today's Tidbits

The past week or so at the day job has been ridiculous. Huge deadlines on a huge project that’s really too huge for the timeline it was scheduled for. Of course, it does look like we’ll be close enough. It also looks like it’s driving me utterly mad with stress. So, the feed is a […]

Weather, Ice Bucket Muppets, Free Range Kids, More From Furguson, and Some Movies
