It seems rather strange to compose a review of a book that many have probably already read, and one that I should have previously read. But to keep with the theme of reading and reviewing books that I read, here it goes… George Orwell’s 1984 depicts a state of the
I did pretty well for the first half of the year and maintained my quota of reading a book per month. The beginning of the year was quite easy as I managed to read a book within the first 10 days of the month or so. However as the months
It’s an exciting time for fans of the Cleveland Indians. It’s been nearly 20 years since they’ve played in the World Series (1997) and it’s been 68 years since they’ve won the World Series (1948). As an Indians fan that lives in the state of Louisiana, I’m often asked, “Why?

Holiday traffic is the worst. Really it is. I decided to do some shopping at lunch today since my wife worked from home today. I had the displeasure of dealing with too many people at Academy Sports. On top of that, the cashier neglected to ring up an item that I
It’s really quite amazing that I haven’t written about my beloved football team. Having been a New Orleans Saints fan since I was able to speak, I find myself wondering, “what has taken me so long…?” Friends of mine know that I follow professional football somewhat extensively. Many would even
