I had two fairly lengthy blog posts about individually unique items all set to publish. One would be geared towards running and hydration, the other towards education in a way.

I am heading out for a full day of high school homecoming activities today. Throw into that mix a re-dedication of our newly remodeled high school and it is going to be a busy Saturday.

Drop the Puck!

The AHL season has officially started. My daughter and I were in attendance as the Binghamton Senators started their tenth season and their first defense of a championship.

Skeptic at Heart

While I have been told that I am too trusting by many people, I find myself being a skeptic here in the last day or two of the 2011 Tour de France.  As almost anyone knows – even those who do not follow the sport of cycling, doping allegations and proven cases have been rampant in the… Continue reading Skeptic at Heart

August 13th’s B Mets Game

I won four tickets to any non-fireworks Binghamton Mets game online at the local newspaper a week or so ago.  I do like going to these games, although they now make me feel slightly older than they use to as the players tend to be the same age as my children.  My 21 year old… Continue reading August 13th’s B Mets Game
