My parents were probably terrified for me, but my boyfriend was a good driver, gasoline was $0.29 a gallon, I had $400 in cash and a plastic coat. What could go wrong? Leavin...Read More

The Amazing Cell-Phone Diet!

Me? I haven’t been able to control my enthusiasm. My wife? She can’t contain her sarcasm. “Gary please tell me you’re running around the house because you’re excited that for once you remembered to put the toilet seat down!” Actually it’s better; much better.
