For another off-topic post, I thought I’d bitch complain for the record that I can’t stand getting my picture taken. I never come out right. At the beach last weekend, my son took this one.

Truth is, before I met my childrens father, I ignored sports. I never played them and never watched them.

Today is my first day back to my office after taking time off to escape to the beach for a mini-family vacation. It’s taken hours to clear away the email junk that I will never read, answer immediate questions and respond to blog comments that were waiting approval. It was that last task that brought me to my first positive moment of the day. Lorelle VanFossen has written What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content. It’s timely. It’sRead more…
