TWENTY years ago today, J.K. Rowling released her debut novel and found “a world that <she> had lived in alone was suddenly open to others”.   Just three short years ago, I couldn’t have told you a thing about Harry Potter other than he was a wizard boy with a popular series Mandy and I […]

I know Fathers Day is about dads and their kids, but I have to give a shout out to my wife who helped make ‘my’ day a little extra special. She got up early to make bacon and eggs to go with my favorite cheese danish that we rarely ever bring into the house (because […]
