Thoughts From My Inbox October 28th, 2022 Free Mattresses, Smelly Haunted Houses, and Facial Recognition Did this week go by quickly, or is it my imagination? Sitting at my desk after 5P yesterday and I suddenly realized I’d put together very little content for this week’s edition.  So at midnight (last night/this morning), I figured […]

Thoughts From My Inbox October 21st, 2022 Goal Posts, Philately, and Wasting Time Are there any philatelists or railfans in the room?

Thoughts From My Inbox October 13th, 2022 Nutcrackers, Airport Hackers, and Ice Cutters The Cleveland Monsters season starts tonight, so it’s appropriate that we have a piece on Zambonis. We also have insight on nutcrackers and airport hackers in what’s been a pretty quiet news week. That’s not a bad thing, considering how busy we’ve […]

Thoughts From My Inbox September 16th, 2022 Brownie, Cliff Diving, and Apples Well, the Browns are 1-0 thanks in part  to a terrible roughing the passer call, but when they’re 1-16 at the end of the season, nobody will remember that penalty!  And when’s the last time the Browns were undefeated and the Indians were […]

Thoughts From My Inbox August 12th, 2022 Corned Beef, McSmugglers, and BEC I’m back after a week away and off the grid in Northern Ontario.
