A city in Georgia is building a giant chicken in order to attract tourists.
Yes, you read the correctly.
I had to read the news story twice the other day when I first saw it.

Miss Print – Is this correct? Is this a Miss Print?

Like many people, I enjoy washing my hands.
Although to be clear, I don’t believe that most other people like washing my hands, they generally prefer to wash their own.
And in 2020, I have been washing my hands even more than usual. All of this hand washing, though, has caused plenty of hand wringing due to the handful of important issues involving liquid hand soap in the world today.

Why can’t a clothes washer and a dryer be combined into the same device? Dishwashers clean and dry the dishes. Why can’t we do this with clothes, too?

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.

And just when I got used to that reality, that’s when I suddenly found myself battling for my life, my planet, and my beliefs about the Oxford Comma.
