    Distance Education - Online Courses

    We have a great online program where I work. Def one of the better programs in the Northeast. Plus you have the benefit of actually getting a degree from a true brick and mortar university.

    Anyone own a Jirsa pipe?

    I own a Jirsa which was a gift from my gal last Christmas. It's a rusticated semi-horn shape, and I love it. It's been a great pipe so far. Pretty heavy for its size so it's def not a clencher.

    Boots! Let's discuss em...

    So as a follow up, I stopped into my local Redwing shop in town (we have had a shop here for almost 30 years, it was my first time there). Talk about a first rate experience!!! The shop owner Joel, was you classic shoe shop guy and could not have been any more helpful. He was awesome, absolutely...

    Boots! Let's discuss em...

    Holy crap! 16? Wow. To add to this discussion further, I did laundry last evening and decided to take inventory of all of our clothes just for shits and giggles. Of the roughly 40 or so garments that I had washed, the percentage of items manufactured in the USA was... :drumroll: Zero...

    She said "yes"... : )

    Don, it's funny you say that. We never go to bed angry, and we always make it a point to kiss and say good night no matter what. And we always say "goodbye" and "I love you" even if I am just running across the street for a minute. I always thought people would think of that as cheesy, but I do...

    Inglourious Basterds - Great flick!

    I checked out Inglourious Basterds this past week on Blu-Ray, and I gotta say, if you like Tarantino, you'll love this film. Great period film (not historically accurate by ANY means in terms of events, but very much accurate in the costume/settings) based in WWII German occupied France. Fair...

    She said "yes"... : )

    Thanks everyone! Really appreciate it! I'll be doing some semi-engagement pics in the next week or so. I'll post up when that happens... Thanks again for all the kind words! -Adam
