I’ve held a lot of jobs over the years, and one thing that has stayed consistent throughout each job is my passion for training people. Whether it was my job as a teacher, a security guard, a server, or a retail manager, I enjoy watching someone learn something new. It isn’t always easy, sometimes you […]

Manic Monday

There are lots of songs with valuable life lessons. Tim McGraw’s “Live Like You Were Dying” is an amazing song about enjoying every moment of your life. “Sumer of 69” taught us that sometimes life gets in the way of our childhood dreams, and that’s okay. “Poison” from Bel Biv Devoe taught us to never […]

Basil of Baker Street

I don’t know why, but I went through a phase recently critiquing plans to usurp royalty.  It’s why I chose to write about Three Musketeers, and this week it’s Great Mouse Detective. Look, if you’re going to try to take on the throne, you’ve gotta be smart about it. And there’s no room for this […]
