When Tracey and I married back in 1991, it didn’t take me long to come to the conclusion that she can’t cook. I mean, she’s a third generation German raised by Italians; and while you might expect some good cooking to come out of that, Macaroni and Cheese is her specialty – six meals out of seven. I cook the seventh meal. Tracey’s mom works for Kraft, and Tracey loves Kraft Macaroni and Cheese – so you can see how we arrived at this situation. Perhaps I’m being a wee bit unfair......

If you research the following story on the internet, you will find many say that it is redneck legend (that’s like an urban legend but rednecks don’t live in urbania) – however, I happen to be friends with the fellow that wrote this! He posted it on a blog a few years back and it’s just grown from there....

Hate is perhaps too strong a word, yet dislike doesn’t quite capture the feeling either, let us go with hate. For the last thirty some odd years, January 8 has continued to be the single most depressing day of the year. It’s the day that demonstrates the past year wasn’t the one, and just maybe, perhaps, next year will be. However, statistical analysis of the previous thirty years demonstrates that is will not be and really, why continue hoping that it will be? You are wondering what I’m talking about, right? “Will......

Will started this whole thing off by putting together one of his lists, and then asking his friends to do the same. Tommy put together a list as well, and I began to feel the compulsion to follow along. I’m not really certain how this will turn out, and I don’t even know if the list is to be “ranked” or simply an unordered list of “things”. I’ve decided to go with an unordered list of 25 things that you may or may not already know about me, but I feel might......

You would think it to be a rather simple thing, an email here, a phone call there, and perhaps a visit. Unfortunately, we find it difficult to maintain the lines of communication that keep us all in touch. Thankfully, there is a slew of technological options to assist in this. For example, we have Twitter for micro-blogging (or mini-updates) throughout a given day, then we have the H57 Blog for more structured updates. The H57 Photo Album attempts to capture and archive those significant (and perhaps not so significant) events that occur......

I’ve read another of posts the past few days with regards to reviewing 2008. Not that I’ve ever been easily impressed, but I wasn’t. I thought to myself, “I can write a better review than that.” So I considered what to write, how to articulate it, and ultimately sum it up. Here’s what I came up with: God blessed me with a wonderful wife and five fantastic kids that I can’t find reason to say I deserve – and they love me through 2008. Nothing else compares this and I can’t even claim......

Tommy found this on the internet and forwarded it to me … I thought it was cute and I’m sharing it with you! See how I keep giving? Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this: 1. The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.2. The fifth would pay $1.3. The sixth would pay $3.4. The seventh would pay $7.5. The eighth would......

A Democrat Friend of Mine Proposed See the WaPo’s piece in which the Obama and McCain tax plans are compared at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2008/06/09/ST2008060900950.html It’s simple enough – if you make less than $226,981 per year then your taxes go down under Obama’s plan. If you’re one of those lucky enough to have a personal income in the top 5% tax bracket, you’re taxes are going up. In a nation where the ratio of CEO pay to that of the average employee is 465:1, this doesn’t bother me in the least. Wealth redistribution is......
