I mean, seriously, who can… Continue Reading Do I own these words? What are they worth?

To err is [delete] [delete] divine

Comments Off

My husband and I often have the same discussion while watching the NFL; he feels that we should replace all players with robots to prevent injuries.

Needles, haystacks and the new work force

I signed up mostly because I like to hear people call me “Professor DeVries,” but I also thought it might be fun to see what kids are all about these days. As usual, I was completely unprepared for what I would find there. The Internet… Continue Reading Needles, haystacks and the new work force
