I start by lighting a few candles and pouring a tall glass of Bourbon.  Then I pull a few logs from the pile of firewood that I chop by hand in the early hours when the leaves are […]

Why Audio Books Have Made Me Hate My Job Less You don’t need to know what I do in the “real world” to sympathize with me here – most days I hate my job and I’d rather be reading.

See, I am a District Manager so I have to travel to several different locations in a given week. The furthest I drive, one […]

From that I can begin forming a picture of the kind of world the author is presenting to us. Interestingly, one of the changes […]
