My son and I went to see Will Farrell/Mark Wahlberg's new movie "The Other Guys" today. It was pretty funny, not the greatest movie, but a good way for he and myself to spend a couple of hours together. The above song made a couple of appearances in the movie (of course it was the studio version, not the live version) that were quite funny as Will Farrell's character said he always had LRB on hand, that he had 6 discs ready at all times.

Something else I… Continue

Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy to have employment. I have a family (with a new addition any day now) to support.… Continue

I think I'll start a blog. I don't know much about blogging. I don't usually read them and I definitely don't usually write them. But, here goes. First off, I've named this blog "A Day In The Life".
