Money isn’t everything, but it’s still a scorecard for many. This is a list of the richest people at every age. Just find your birth year and see who the richest person is at that age (your age). Two takeaways for me. One – I did not find my name on the list (kinda expected...

So, I was out riding my bike…

May 11, 2017 | 0 Comments

Not around here of course, but something similar might just happen in the great outdoors, on a trail, when you’re out for a ride. Right? Also not sure I would have actually stopped, as either the first rider or the camera rider. I think I would have set a land speed record on bike!!!...

The Weeknd @ The Grammy Awards

February 2, 2017 | 0 Comments

I mentioned that The Weeknd has been announced to play The Grammy Awards. And he’ll be joined by Daft Punk. Daft Punk rarely make an appearance like this, so it could be kind of cool. Undoubtedly they will do their two hits together “Starboy” and “I Feel It Coming”, both of which we play on...
