We pass bits down from generation to generation. Sometimes it’s intentional, other times it’s quite accidental. In either case, it’s unavoidable – especially in the case of parenthood. Meet, Balthazar. He’s my eldest son and new to the real social interactions of the web. It’s a scary place out here, but I’m cautiously optimistic that … [Read more…]
My wife and I like to think strategically about our future. Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest.
In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the money. The following is an ongoing … [Read more…]

There is a gray storm cloud hovering above us; perhaps still building in power and ferocity, or lingering remnants of a thunderhead. I’m not talking about the weather, though the hurricane located near Corpus Christi does invoke a palpable invocation of the mood.
Man has been on a quest throughout time to find the riddle of the root of all evil.
