Lessons from the Gorillas and Pandas
Thursday, July 10, 2014      9 comments

I love them, among other animals. When I go to the zoo, I can't help but notice that they eat the same things every day and are quite content to eat to live. Realizing that I am neither a gorilla nor panda, I DO not have to live to eat any... Read more

Will Work Hard to Make the 2nd Half of This Year Better than the First Half
Monday, June 30, 2014      14 comments
