That Cowboy

The door that I use to leave my office is the same door that truck drivers use to get to our shipping office, so I generally pass by many truck drivers on their way to the shipping department in my comings and goings. Recently as I was leaving for the day, a driver was walking […]

SXSW Wrap-up

Oh, the best laid plans… I had such a tight schedule worked out for SXSW.

With all that anticipation and planning, there’s generally […]
