I know I'm late! I'm just keeping it real and keeping it busy. And keeping it real busy. I have a new post about injustice (some light reading) up at my other non-profit blog. Please support and link and all that other stuff! Click here to read.
Five years ago today I started this little blog. A lot has happened to me over the years since and many lessons have been learned. I can honestly say that I am a different person in the sense that I have grown up quite a bit, but I am still me. I can be no [...]
As Black History Month comes to a close for the 35th time I am left reinvigorated. The family and I went to Washington DC last week for four days to see the sights. It's one of those things that I always wanted to do but like so many things in my childhood it was just [...]
We had fun yesterday on Halloween with Dev. He dressed up as Michael Jackson from "Beat It Live in Bucharest," showed some of his moves to strangers, then asked them for candy.

Sometimes the snow comes on the perfect day, and today was that day. I was off work and the schools were closed. The wife is off on Fridays already, not that I'm jealous. We chilled out (literally and figuratively) and just enjoyed the perfect snow day.
I've never posted a conversation with my mother on this blog. Good thing she doesn't own a computer... My mother and I were talking on the phone the other day and as usual she tried to run a guilt trip on me. She said "oh my boys don't call me enough." And "I guess one [...]
This past weekend my wife was sick with some kind of 24 hour bug. I was glad to see her resting for a change, but not under the circumstances. I purchased the soup and juice needed to combat any sickness and plowed her with acetaminophen to keep the fever down. I am also a self [...]
