    I love getting a Mani Pedi. It is an easy way to pamper yourself, can be done inexpensively, and nice hands are feet are important.  More men should actually make it a part of their regular schedules because it’s gross when a man’s hands are feet are gnarly.  God Bless Ryan...

    February 16, 2011 | 12:44 pm

    I spent last week in Vietnam and Cambodia. Visiting these two long-suffering countries made me revisit some of the basic beliefs that have shaped my life.

    Determination is a virtue. Remember how determined we were in Vietnam?
