The Blackest Burger, The Sun is Trying to Kill Us, Congress Sells Out, and Remembering 9-11

This entry is part 96 of 100 in the series Today's Tidbits

Today was a very long day at work. There are another couple of days like that looming in the near future. It really didn’t help that there was a lot more on my mind today than work. I would have rather spent the day reading about politics and how Congress just dropped the ball on […]

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