  • Disappearing by Michael D LeFevre 7/5/2015 5:38:43 AM
    If you are wondering why I don't blog as often as I should, let me just clarify that 2015 could be the year where I disappear up my own rectum. Between, full time work, supply teaching, officiating American football, family and other projects, there ... more

  • Hey, Rube! by Dorien Grey 7/2/2015 2:45:27 AM
    In the days when carnivals and circuses roamed across America, the rides and the side-shows were the primary draws. And while the rides were generally legitimate, the same could hardly be said of the side shows. Bearded ladies, turtle boys, rubber me... more

  • Hidden Costs? by Dorien Grey 6/29/2015 3:02:32 AM

  • Do Not Go Gentle.... by Dorien Grey 6/1/2015 2:59:23 AM
