June 23rd, 2011 · 3 Comments

Time just whizzes by.  Last year my New Year’s resolution was to update this website at least once a month.  Like most New Year’s resolutions… that never happened.  It is not because I don’t care; it is a combination of being very busy and not really knowing what to write about.  My passion to help […]

Don’t cry over spilled milk…or hacked websites!

September 19th, 2007 · 2 Comments

As if my life is not hectic enough.  For those who know me know that I am pretty emotional.  I think about car accidents hours after I witness them.  I make up fake stories in my head about the lives of the people involved.  I know I am crazy but my mind never stops and […]
