Earlier in September, I attended a business meeting in Silver Spring, Maryland. Initially, I wasn’t sure how to get to Silver Spring from Hartford, CT; I didn’t realize that the DC Metro system goes to Silver Spring. In addition to the funny story that little journey brought us, that fact also meant that I could... Continue Reading →
“You’re going to need a jacket, it’s in the 40s” That was the suggestion made at 6:00 am Monday. I resisted. I dread the first day of the season than I need a jacket. It was going to warm-up during the day and that usually means that I’ll leave that jacket at work. What to... Continue Reading →
I saw my breath yesterday morning. I got to wear my Steeler hoodie for the first time this season. When I took Maddie on our walk, we saw leaves on the ground. It’s coming. Autumn is coming. Given the hot dry summer that we’ve had, I think it’s going to come quickly. It might be... Continue Reading →
I’ve been promising the voices in my head that they could have a crack at Linda G. Hill’s SoCS prompt. They were pretty mad at me when I co-opted the prompt for a bar conversation last week. I’m going to give today’s prompt to them, but I’m not sure where we’re heading. Your Friday prompt... Continue Reading →
On the other side of Farmington from Miss Porter’s School, is an area known as Unionville. Unionville is not one of Connecticut’s 169 towns, but a lot of people talk about Unionville as if it’s a free state. Several years ago, there were signs in front of houses and some businesses that simply said “Save... Continue Reading →
“You looked like the kind of guy that wouldn’t mind…” Last week, I was attending a meeting in Silver Spring, Maryland. I took an AMTRAK Northeast Regional train to Washington Union Station and then took a Metro Red Line train to Silver Spring. This could not have been easier. Thursday morning, I walked from my...

A while ago, Ellen explained how the men in black shoes and the right suits, control the world’s economy and who knows what else. It reminded me of the story of how I got that job in the Gold Building. I was pretty sure I had already shared this part of the story. I searched,... Continue Reading →
If we were having a beer you would be chomping at the bit to switch the conversation to your topic. “Pitt? How many teams do you support and how much team gear do you own? And, if I may add, why Pitt?” “Cheryl, can I get a Yuengling please, it seems I have a few... Continue Reading →
This is classic Dan Hen – The other Dan, not me, that guy, the guy that sometimes leans toward the absurd. Anyway, I really like this post, and I don’t think there’s a lot of overlap between his and my readers, so here ya go. I’ll be back tomorrow, and I’ll be in the bar.
Girls don’t make passes at guys who use the wrong glasses —- anonymous
I don’t want to talk about eye glasses . That’s another animal entirely . I want to discuss drinking glasses . There are exactly 23,879 different shapes of glasses in the Free World . Remember the Free World ?
Of course , I might be slightly wrong on the count . It changes all the time . Some styles are discontinued and some new ones are introduced . Let’s just say that , to be more accurate , there is a margin of error of , say , 60 % . Give or take . But I’m always willing to be corrected , if you’d like to do a recount or can cite some trustworthy person or agency who has done a more accurate count in recent months .
I ran in to a couple of…
