I don’t understand camping.

There’s a reason we evolved and built indoor plumbing.

Getting out of the city.

Absolute quiet.

Seeing more stars than you can possibly imagine.

The hypnotic beauty of a crackling campfire.

Being with friends…

I will give you that. The bathroom issue is a lot easier if you’re a guy, but they make great little camp toilets that take the process a lot cleaner and less “buggy”

Getting a cabin in the country is the perfect compromise. My parents are building one right now and I can’t wit to see it.

Btw, I love your blog, you have a beautiful smile too.

Being with friends when there’s nothing to distract you from the conversation.

Hearing nature wake up around you.

The smell of a pine forest.

Need more? I could keep going.

Unemployment in a nutshell

So I build websites and web services for a living.  It’s what a I do professionally, and it’s also my hobby.  My wife has a friend who does hair and nails for a living.  She has had a VERY hard time maintaining employment.  Between jobs, she goes into her clients homes with her kit and works in-home.  My wife is one of her in-home clients.  On her most recent visit to our house, I offered to build her a website where she could promote her services, offer specials, and even build an appointment request functionality.  I would build the site for her for free, all she’d have to pay for is hosting.

She declined on the basis that if people were able to request service on their own, it would be harder for her to avoid certain people and tell them that she doesn’t want to work for them.

Soooo…..you’re going to turn away a website worth thousands of dollars and, turn away a TON of new online business, on the basis that you don’t want to work for a few, select people who MIGHT request your services on the website?

I think I understand now why you’re having a hard time.

Justin Bieber has a perfume?

I’m betting it smells of estrogen and insecurity?

Oh good. Something that’ll help.
Seriously I filmed my own sister doing the ice bucket challenge and i still have no clue what ALS is

Holy shit! Charlie sheen actually did something right! (Other than” Major League” and “Hot Shots!”)

I guess even a broken clock is right twice a day.

But seriously, good on him if he actually donated money.

Seriously.

Quit acting like you care by doing something foolish and meaningless, and just write a check!

To those of you that are uncomfortable seeing someone carrying a weapon in public:

revengeofthemudbutt:

Just remember that for every person you see open carrying, you probably missed about five or six people that were concealed carrying.

Just food for thought.

I get a kick out of thinking about this.

Don’t give Obama any ideas, please.
