The Hungry Boy’s Epic Tales #1

This is what I gifted my son Lucas with for our “Home-made Christmas 2012.”  He loved it and couldn’t stop giggling as he read the story that featured HIM as the main character along with funny, photoshopped graphics. Please enjoy,...

Who am I Voting for, and Why?

If I am to vote for either Romney or Obama, I will vote Obama. Why? The list is very long, but here are a few of the reasons why. Bottom line, he’s the safer bet, especially when it comes to foreign policy, and more closely mirrors my values.
