  1. Keith, don't worry about it. I forgot what grade my daughter is in the other day. It isn't something you think about every day. Heck, last year my wife had to remind me that I was 36 and not 37. I had been telling people I was a year older than I was. Middle age is fun, isn't it?

    I forget my own age occasionally (or frequently). I cannot tell you how many times I have had to do the math to figure it out (and I am lucky if I remember the current year to start the math with). I would say the luckiest thing to happen to me is have been born in a year that ends and five, and to have been married in a year that ends in zero. That makes the math so much quicker.

    I've never gone shopping on tax-free weekend. The thought of dealing with all of the crowds to save only 8% seems nonsensical. This is especially true since I can buy the same things on Amazon without leaving the house, and most likely cheaper.

    Walking around in a suit can be a beating. During that awful summer of 2011, I had a job that required me to go to the courthouse downtown 2-3 days a week. While parking was provided, it was in a surface lot that was four blocks away. Walking four blocks in a suit, downtown, in the afternoon, in July-August was just awful. I've never had my suits dry cleaned as much as I did that summer.

    The church/National Guard story seems a little fishy. It seems like a he said/she said story that has turned into much ado about nothing. I'm sure no little kid's VBS experience was ruined because an army man didn't show up in a big truck. Besides, is a HUMVEE even that big of a deal any more, since so many people drive one (or a version of one)? Sounds more like somebody just wanted to raise a stink and play the "persecuted Christian" card.

  4. My biggest problem with remembering my age: My birthday is in November, so I spend the whole year telling people that I will turn 38 this year. So, by the time November rolls around, I have said 38 so many times that I think I am turning 39. So I get myself confused, then spend the next two weeks walking around in a fugue state like Walter While.

    I agree with Ben about the National Guard story. Somebody (FOX News) just wants to raise a stink. The church should have put the request in long before they did. Much ado about nothing unless you are just looking for anything to blame the government about.

    The DARPA smartphone story was very interesting.
