Quad Father’s Day

Father’s Day was just about 2 weeks ago now so I know I’m late but I wanted to talk about my greatest gift. I didn’t actually receive it on Father’s Day but on the Thursday before.

Fear

Funny, my wife and I were talking about the prediction of mini ice age in 15 years and I had an epiphany. As I’m sitting here (like usually do being wheelchair bound and all, lol) causally explaining how we needed a wood burning fireplace and to stock pile firewood, dry goods, etc. I was really freaking out.

Happy Martin Luther King Day

In the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr and the Civil Rights Movement I want to expose another movement, a movement that like many others I did not know existed. This movement is the Disability Rights Movement. In 2011 PBS released 60-minute documentary called “Lives Worth Living” by filmmaker Eric Neudel. The film follows the evolution of the disability rights … Continue reading
