Elderly Internet Use


It’s been 5 long years since my grandfather died. He suffered from pancreatic cancer, and it finally won. He had already beat colon cancer, but unfortunately this one did him in. That last year, I’d spend almost every night with him – talking about history, life, and business. One of the most interesting things I saw during ...


Why Light Switches have Nothing to do with Website Development


I really don’t know that much about drywall. I like to think I do, considering that I have done drywall, but I’m mostly fooling myself. A few years ago, when we were actually living in the house we own, the basement was old, dingy and disgusting. One Saturday morning, my wife and I had enough ...
