I usually don’t advertise this type of thing on the blog, but this is my birthday weekend. I don’t advertise it, because I honestly don’t really care about my birthday. That’s not said to garner sympathy, it just stopped being important to me for whatever reason. I even sometimes forget about it.
Other people don’t [...]
A simple phrase that can mean so many things. In April, when I started this draft, I initially intended it to talk about the progress I was making moving into our new house.
I could write about the flurry of moves the Cubs have made recently. Tonight saw Matt Garza go, but prior to that, [...]
We’ve been down this road before.
It’s a good road. It’s a fun-filled road with interesting treasures to be discovered. A road laced with history.
But this is a fragile road because it’s made of cardboard.
It’s also a never-ending road to nowhere, because I don’t know what kind of metaphor or analogy or introduction [...]
In my most recent post, I sung the praises of the #TwitterTrade. Well…second verse, same as the first.
This time, I’m talking about Charles, aka @SWLVGUY. He’s another must-follow on there. Not only is he a great trader, as you’re about to see, but also a fantastic twitter ambassador for the hobby.

It’s a phrase we’ll hear many times throughout our lives. Most of the time the way it’s uttered is riddled with cliche. It’s small talk. You could be discussing something as mundane as your weekend plans on a Wednesday and that co-worker chimes in “Good things come to those who wait.”
Right. Thanks for that.
Is when I’m participating in a group break and I’ve claimed them.
Okay, I guess I also cheered along in 2005. I may be anti-South Side, but if anyone’s going to win the World Series, I was happy that it could have been a team in Chicago. Even if it does mean people on my [...]
It doesn’t happen too often, but occasionally bloggers will get cards out of the blue. Typically we’re not those guys. There’s usually a reason for us receiving something from somebody. And speaking just for myself, I’m fine with that. I get so wrapped up in the various aspects of my life that I can’t spend [...]
New Business: I’m still working on getting the 2003 Leaf Box packed out and shipped to people. The first wave went out last week, next wave will go out tomorrow and the final wave should be by the end of the week. Thanks again to everyone for joining. We’ll dive into a couple of those [...]
How about that Walking Dead season finale? The first half of the season was terrible, and still not wild about all the inconsistencies and random changing of the rules on the fly, but at least we got a nice action packed ending.
Oh, right. Cards. This is going to be a big one. Get ready.
