Think Before You Post

Posted December 29, 2010

I’m seeing more and more people do things that make me wonder if they are taking a moment to think before they create.

The Fireman And The Candy Cane

Posted December 20, 2010

Every year like clock work, you will hear a unique blend of Christmas music and sirens as the local fire department parades through the streets of my hometown.
