  • Why not me?

    I’m 42, soon to be 43, and I’m HIV-. I’m a gay male in the United State who grew up with the warning that if I had gay sex I would get AIDS and die. It hasn’t happened to me. But why not? Luck. That’s all it can be. I’m not particularly promiscuous, nor am […]

  • Family Feud isn’t a Game

    My sister just got married. It was a lovely wedding – the bride radiant, the groom nervous. The groom’s parents beaming. The bride’s mother cried as her daughter pledged to love, honor, and cherish ’til death do them part. A year ago, I never would have imagined how things would play out. This has been […]

  • Southern Comfort

    I’ve been offline since late last week, which was when I had a last-minute deal appear in my lap and proceed to shred my thursday and friday like a demon-possessed wood chipper. Oh so much fun. And let’s not forget the random weather in Montana that included a blizzard that appeared at 2 am Saturday […]

  • Candle on the Water

    Ok, so I get to play Proud Uncle Auntie Kev as my niece, the Ever Adorable One, sings her first solo in a concert. I must say, she’s damn good. Enjoy!

  • Gramps…

    I don’t really know what to write about this, but here goes. Yesterday at around 3:15 pm my grandpa Hal passed away. While I’m saddened that he’s gone, and he will be missed, I’m glad that he’s no longer in pain. Cancer seems to grab many in my family, but his seemed particularly horrible, especially […]
