A list of Federally recognized holidays: New Year’s Day: we celebrate a random day in the middle of winter that doesn’t actually start anything except an arbitrary calendar by partying hard and having mega sales.

That time o' year again?

In recent weeks, I have made a determined effort to live a less … DIGITAL … lifestyle. Since I made the decision to do this, I have been involved in the development of three new web sites (one of them a store site), started a Go Fund Me campaign, and updated another one of my ... Read More
