Happy New Fiscal Year!
I’m so thankful that 2020 is finally over and that we can now move on to 2021. What a year it has been! I am ready to be done with that!
Now, just as with the calendar years, I realize that not everyone celebrates the new fiscal year at the same time. This date seems to be the most prevalent, though, so I thought it was appropriate to party like its 2021 today.

Tables are reliable, useful and, in most instances, stable. They are also incredibly underrated.
While, chairs, beds and even bars receive most of the attention, tables come to work every day and are always there for you if you want to sit down, eat a meal, play a game, do your homework or just set down the junk mail.
Tables are amazing! Plus, there are so many of them that you use every day! I’m happy just thinking about it! At the same time, I can’t tell you how often I hear someone say, “But, Nick, what is the best type of table?” Continue reading “Top 5 Tables”
Note: In an effort to make myself write more often during this quarantine, I am writing a story that involves this whole crazy situation. It will hopefully be published regularly and will hopefully be somewhat interesting.
The quarantine had been hard on all of us, most of all my stomach.
The whole world had practically shut down due to the coronavirus, and everyone was reacting to the new reality.

When people today discuss the great oceans of the world, too often they fail to mention the most majestic of them all, Billy.
Sure, the Pacific Ocean may cover 63 millions square miles and sustain life, but how many Top 5 hits has it had?
I grew up a fan of cheesy 80s music and have always loved Billy Ocean. Not enough people seem to recognize his greatness, though, so I wanted to share a few thoughts with you about the magic of this fun and amazing artist. Continue reading “Get out of my dreams, get into my blog – A few thoughts on the magic of Billy Ocean”
While much of the world seems to be wondering what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will do next, I would like to offer them a solution.
They are welcome to join my family.
Recently, the Royal Couple announced that they would distance themselves from the Royal Family and would work toward becoming financially independent. I think this sounds very good for them, and I admire them for making this big decision.
Since it is such a monumental change, though, I think they may need some help. And after carefully studying the situation, I am confident that joining my family makes the most sense for them. Here are a few reasons why: Continue reading “Here’s what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should do next”

Today I would like to discuss with you an important topic that I have spent way too much time thinking about recently.
That topic, of course, is chip clips. I’m sure most of you have been thinking about this topic as well.
I love the way chip clips help to keep bags of chips fresh, but even more than that, I love the name Chip Clip.
Chip clip, chip clip, chip clip!
It’s fun to say, and I often find myself interjecting it into tongue twisters and songs. For example: Continue reading “Finally, a column about chip clips!”
