Selling Life

By now, the secret’s out. T-cells. It appears to be the single greatest medical discovery in decades, and I just saw the story that made its way to Sunday Morning on CBS. What really stood out to me in the story was the parents’ fierce determination to try anything and everything possible to save theirContinue reading “Selling Life”

Playing the Lottery

The Mega Millions lottery payout is now at 1 billion dollars. Those are my kind of numbers, so I might buy a couple tickets for the next drawing.

No win situation
