That's what I spent the last four days looking at, which truly helped me unplug for a while. The picture below is the view of the house if you turn around. It's my sister's house on Lake Weir in Oklawaha, FL, just outside of Ocala. My favorite part of the house is right there... just to the left of the tree. See the wooden gate? That's an outdoor shower! As you shower, you look out at the lake (top picture). Not too bad, huh? And we did some hiking! And went to Silver Springs, and an actual Drive-In, [...]
Let us offer up hope that a grinning Loretta Lynch knows the digits of a satirical florist in Fort Lee … the ultimate Big Man Jig appears to finally be up.

It was a bittersweet ending to one of TV's smartest, funniest shows ever. Thankfully, we haven't lost Stephen Colbert forever, but his fictional alter-ego is now one for the history books. And I'll never hear "We'll Meet Again" in the same way.... Today, Americans are outraged that we seem to have given in to blackmail courtesy of North Korea, as Sony Pictures decided to give into the hackers' demands to kill their planned Christmas Day release of "The Interview." As of now, there are no plans to release it in any form, as per the instructions of the new masters [...]
