Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

The staff of enjoys alerting our readers to interesting websites. Let’s not forget the thought-provoking sites: menwholooklikekennyrogers, whowouldbuythat, and himonkey. Now we encourage you to look at Human Clock. Louise (Heather’s on the left in the picture, Louise is her mom) told me about this site. The wheels in my brain starting turning right […]

The Water is Wide

I always feel untouchable when biking or running on the lakefront path. Even though I’m close to the city and within arm’s length of Lake Shore Drive, the stresses and annoyances of city life seem miles away. I’m learning quickly that boating on Lake Michigan can provide much the same feelings of separation. Thanks to […]

I’m Gonna Clear My Head, I’m Gonna Drink That Sun

This past weekend was really the kick-off to Summer 2004 in Chicago. Beautiful weather in Chicago, Andersonville’s MidSommarfest and the kick-off run to training for the 27th Chicago Marathon (mark your calendars for Sunday, October 10th!) Fewer hours of sleep on Friday nights, but running along the lake just after dawn is a breathtaking site. […]

On the Road Again

The staff of is hitting the ribbons of highway Tuesday, headed to Music City U.S.A. for country music’s biggest party, the annual Fan Fair. In an extension of our motto ‘We read, so you don’t have to’—we also listen so you know whether you want to. Now, not everyone out there is a country […]

(So) It’s the Third of June, Another Sleepy Dusty Delta Day…

French Open Update
