Please check out my year in review. I think it’s pretty awesome what my little blog did. The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2014. If it were a cable […]

An Open Letter to My Daughters

Dear Annie and Brigid, Your nonchalant refusal to take me up on my invitation yesterday to join me on my trip to the cemetery to take flowers to my parents was completely thoughtless, showing that you have hit new lows in self-indulgent, inconsiderate behavior. You were not only…
