“One Freaking Apple” – What I learned on the road last week

“One Freaking Apple” – What I learned on the road last week

If you’ve been with me for the past year, you’ll know I always seem to learn something interesting when I travel.  It might be that my cordless mouse is a threat to aviation security, that some restaurants have no business advertising, or even that “Unskinny Bop” is a song that will follow you, no matter where you go.

It was good to spend time with family, and as always, I learned a few things while we were on the road.  I learned about lizards, little league baseball families, and the importance of really LOOKING at a sign before you put it up on the side of the highway.  It was an interesting week…
