It’s Not Rocket Science

There's a college Physics final exam going on in my dining room right now. That's as close to Physics as I have been since I was a Senior in high school, dipped my toe into the Physics world, and ran screaming before I got in too deep. Yeah, that's why I play with words. It's... Continue Reading →

The Approach to Presents

I just noticed that there might be more than one way to wrap a holiday present. (I say this tongue-in-cheek, because of course there is!)
