One of our favorite things to do is drive up to Southwest Virginia and enjoy the slower pace of life at Smith Mountain Lake. My wife and I visit SML each season, but you can’t beat the summertime here. Due to the nature of my work, I’m often tethered to my phone and my computer. This […]

weller bourbon review

A few weeks ago, I published an article about some awesome and affordable bourbons that you should try.

Creating the “Man Basket” has become a really fun tradition now. If you didn’t know, I’m a board member for a local not for profit, SIDEWAYS Contemporary Dance Company (my wife is also a dancer).
