  • Captain’s Log, Star Date: Day Nine

    Back in the day, my brother and I used to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation. I know, right? But, we weren’t total nerds (those are called geeks), we were more like mild nerds (I think that’s just considered dorky). We definitely dabbled into nerd territory… Read More ›

  • We were talking…
