- 10-Mar-2008Seeking “Paul Ronald Ryan” from Dodger Game, 1960s
A colleague of mine here at work is in search of evidence of his biological father’s existence. Because he knows I’m a big internet data mining nerd he asked for my help, and in turn I ask you for help. Here’s the information he provided me: During a Dodger game during the 1965, 1966, or…
- Abort, Retry, Fail
If at first you don’t succeed. Retry. Hey y’all. Getting back in the saddle after not feeling too well. Also, I did a rough draft of my taxes and it looks like we need to save a pile of money or The Tax Man is gonna be mad. But have no fear, we have payment…
