If seeing is believing

I've never claimed to be a smart man. I tend to view things simply, despite my fascination with how Einstein saw things mathematically and how Flannery O'Connor described things in her unique anagogical style. I love chatting with those knowledgeable about quantum electrodynamics, but if asked to explain what European physicists are doing with their Large Hadron Collider, I just paint it simply and say they're looking for an elusive, crucial particle that will explain how science works.

Eat your vegetables

here's a song that says Christmas is "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." You might agree with that, but I don't. Christmas is indeed fabulous, but I think the most wonderful time comes after the holiday festivities are over. I can hang up my Martha Stewart apron and send her packing 'til Easter, while I simply rest with nothing pressing on my calendar.
