900-plus miles achieved in running

Not a bad start for the exercise resolutions of 2013. Hell, last year I hadn’t even gotten across the 300-miles mark. I was practically starting over then but I did manage to exceed 2011’s distance  by 30 percent. Now it’s … Continue reading

Mumbled/Weird lyrics clarified

My only gripe with the Mental Floss article is its brevity. Only 11 entries? Pop/Rock music has hundreds! Queen and Men at Work I already knew. The Eagles didn’t need much work to figure out, those guys were hitting the … Continue reading
