People are in awe of freelancers. That’s the only way to explain the strange questions that we get.

You don’t need to resort to steroids to get a leg up on the competition. There really are no substitutes for hard work, discipline, and talent. Nevertheless, there are many natural things that can be done to give athletes a competitive edge.
In October of this year, Kate and I released our first book, The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man. While its success wasn’t on par with say, those books about werewolves and vampires, I was really happy with its modest success and have gotten a lot of positive feedback on it.

My wife and I decided a long time ago that we like children but don’t really want any of our own. Luckily, the rest of my family appear to be breeders, and now we have seven nieces with another on the way. I suppose there’s a chance that this one could be a nephew, but it’s pretty unlikely.
One of the things that we like to do in the summer is to grab one or two of the girls, and let the

The ever-changing sculpture is a pile of 20 PS Vallo watering cans that can be stacked and connected in various configurations. It looks even better - like a snake - if you have a flat surface to stretch it out sideways. Cost: $1.99 X 20 =39.80.
I'm re-reading, for the fourth time, Carl Jung's Memories, Dreams, Reflections. One of my chief preoccupations (along with happiness, of course) is a subject that I call "symbols beyond words," so I can't get enough of this book. Its vision is so huge.
