So Facebook made some big changes this week, huh? It’s been pretty funny to watch the stream. People do NOT like change. I think it’s pretty freaking cool, especially the new timeline. If you don’t yet have the new timeline enabled, this Mashable article (sorry Howie, it’s the only one I could find) tells you how. Beware, though, you’re about to get sucked in for at [&hellip...

The 9/11 10 year anniversary is this weekend and, I don’t know about you, but it’s really hard to watch the images of the World Trade Center crumbling over and over and over again. It’s understandable to want to make a big deal about this milestone, but watching the footage puts me right back in the Nebraska cornfields where I was that morning, getting ready for [&hellip...
