Ozymandias, you’re our only hope

You won’t find a lot of political speak on my brog, primarily because I simply do not care about politics.  Typically, this ambivalence remains in place until it actually begins to directly affect my bottom line.  I’m not going to pretend like I know the facts behind it, but after tomorrow, it actually will be doing such, and that’s all I really know.  Due to whatever Obamacare or what name it has/will have, it appears that I’ll have to re-configure my health insurance coverage to be kosher with the guidelines in place with Obamacare, lest I be fined.

I’ve also realized that I actually really dislike taking group shots, and prefer to take pictures of solos or pairs.
