2013. You came and went so quickly. Another year down. Another website change. And one more Netflix Pix before 2014 kicks into gear.
And yes, I just used the phrase, "kicks into gear."
As always, this might just be the Blog Feature To Sweep The Nation's most important month. Why is that? Well, because Christmas, duh! No, but really: You get a few days away from work. You have to either host or impose upon family members you never get to see. The nights are cold and you need a quick hour-and-a-half ... read more

August, oh August, oh August. You're the hottest month of the year. You bring back to us Americans the most profitable sport in all the land, football. And, to those still young enough to not know any better, you also bring back school, the single most trying time for a young person with no wardrobe or neat backpack.
