I valued my independence and the ability to do as I pleased, but still there was a place in my heart that... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving

Skolops and Sainthood

My wife and I don’t have a TV. It seems like this is increasingly common among millennials: rather than spending money for cable or satellite, we’re more apt to sign up for online streaming services. I generally don’t want to spend money on those either, but I still manage to spend more hours watching various... Continue Reading →
