We Got the Beat

Hey now, Homeslice, what are you up to this weekend? It looks like I am going to have Sunday off – as in a whole entire DAY. Remember when I used to take Sundays off? No, neither do I. I’m determined to do it this weekend. It’s been ages since I’ve made the Rosemary Gimlet in that post; it’s time to break out the gin and enjoy the first weekend of fall.

Millennials Are the Coolest

  And that is saying something, because I happen to love my neon legwarmer wearing 80's generation. But my oldest son graduated from high school and it was amazing to watch. They have perfected the graduation ceremony - no more sweating in the sun listening to long, boring slogs masquerading as inspirational speeches. No, these kids did it inside a stadium, the speeches were short, funny, and fierce, and every single one of them looked ready to take on the world. The parents mostly just sat back and said, Whoa, dude. How did the Millennials get like this? Wish I could take credit…
