In the Stephen Sondheim musical, “Anyone Can Whistle,” there is a song called “Everybody Says Don’t” – and it is a catchy number. The song is on my mind today. It is a somewhat philosophical number from Act II of that musical and I will reproduce the lyrics in full bel...

It is nice to be back in the blogging chair after a much anticipated (and much needed) vacation. Did I miss anything? Haha. Kidding.
