Sunset – Brian’s 50th Birthday

Entry Img

Tomorrow is the big day and Brian will be 50. He’s an amazing guy and best friend to so many. It’s hard to believe we have both endured a half-century on this mortal coil and given how I feel, and I am assuming Brian feels the same, we could easily go another 50. Maybe by then […]

Happy 50th Birthday to my dear brother Brian, with only a few more days until March 17th, the day he shares with our patron saint, Patrick.

To show how much I love my brother, I grudgingly used this photo for a good laugh.  If you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at? This is the countdown to March 17, and a happy 50th to my brother, Brian, the best brother anyone could ever want in the whole world. Let’s […]

Trouble – Honoring Brian’s 50th

This is the countdown to March 17, and a happy 50th to my brother, Brian, the best brother anyone could ever want in the whole world. It’s confession time. When I consider that at 50 (getting ready to be 51) the statute of limitations on anything I might have done has well expired, I can […]

My Irish Twin – Countdown to March 17th and 50 Years

This is a story borne of desperation. Last year, for my 50th birthday, my brother Brian (who is exactly one year and three days younger than me) lit me up on Facebook with great pictures of the two of us as children. The sentiment was real, it was touching, and it was unbeatable.  And I […]

New Beginnings

Entry Img

Look for this site to go back into regular status once again. The last six months were pretty overwhelming. Couple this with some of my colleagues moving out of the network made things a little disconcerting, but all of it made me realize that I probably wasn’t doing any of us any favors in the […]
