Everybody Needs a Little Break!
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. It does the same thing to Mike. So here's a look at some of the things I do just for fun, to amuse myself, and because it's a lot cheaper than therapy.
My Whirled View
If you're in the mood for some short stories that may make you think about life, or just make you laugh a little bit, this is where you'll find them. Welcome to My Whirled View—my own perspective on things that have happened in the past, and the people and events who shaped the way that I look at the world today. It's always changing!

Eight Miles East of Normal
If you grew up in a small Midwestern town (or even if you didn't) you can relive those glorious days of freedom, exploration, anxiety, and wonder through the selective memories of someone who was there in the 50s through the 70s. Long hair and bell bottoms are optional. Click here for a "taste" or to download the book for free.
Songs & Lyrics
If you want to hear some songs that you'll never hear on the radio (or find on iTunes) you can take a listen here. You can also browze through some lyrics that haven't yet met their melodies. The offerings here may not be as polished as what you'll find on Amazon.com—but everything is straight from the hearat (or sometimes the spleen)! Click here to listen or read.
My Favorite Memes
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes, when you have a picture with words, it's priceless. Take a not-always-serious look at some of the things we think, but rarely say out loud. Click here to take a look at some of my favorite memes.
