What a week All I can say is that I’m really, really, REALLY glad it’s over. Hopefully, I’ll have some time to catch up next week. (It’s gotta be an improvement over this one.) Hope all of you had a better week than I did. About these ads

I didn’t do too badly (click to enlarge). You get points not only for right answers but also for how … Continue reading
I have mentioned before about the documentaries the Naro shows on Wednesdays. They usually are followed up by a speaker from the area of the film who talks and answers questions. Sometimes, like last night, they are about things I know quite a bit about, but sometimes they are topics I know nothing about. However, … Continue reading
Looks like Hampton Roads might be getting some snow overnight. Of course, the weather folks around here are giddy, almost hyperventilating at the thought Snow is not something we get to see very often.

The Washington Redskins lost their playoff game yesterday to the Seattle Seahawks, in a game in which we saw star rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III go down. Others have asked if Griffin should have even been playing. My answer?

Maybe I have been observing to many partisan politics stories and it has caused me to see everything in my life divided.But here is a funny little observation I have noticed this year. Recently I have seen people I normally … Continue reading
How could I have forgotten to post this yesterday? Monday night, the Washington Redskins beat the New York Giants by a single point. What a game!

I ran across this article today about former Redskin Tre Johnson. We don’t often hear about pro players after their careers end, unless it is something negative. Johnson’s story is far from that.
