Wisconsin

Years ago, Aj inherited her grandparents house in northern Wisconsin. When I say northern Wisconsin, I mean it's up there. The house is far enough out that we can see lots of stars, and even the Milky Way (the galaxy, not the candy bar). We've held on to it because we...

It’s been a few weeks since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, and the anti-Trump rage continues. It would appear that some people are just not willing to give the man a chance. Maybe we’re not as open minded as cultural as we think.
