Expedition Detritus

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Much to the chagrin of my long-suffering wife, I’m a bit of a pack rat, as well as a horizontal filer. What that translates into is an office that inevitably evolves into stacks of material covering every horizontal surface. To my wife’s and others amazement, I can locate the correct strata of ...

Fuso Footprint

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009
