It's good to make it overt, but the...

So, we've settled on "Gracie" I think. I do enjoy saying, "goodnight Gracie," when I tuck her in on the couch for the night.

She continues to be an awesome dog. She did, for the first time...

A few weeks ago, I had an episode that was in all likelihood a weird migraine-related thing. I very regularly get migraine auras, and often I don't get a headache, or only get a relatively mild...

It's important to remember that there are actual differences between Democrats and Republicans. It clearly has not hurt the GOP to not just be the more racist and misogynist party, but to become the...
