What I See When I Run: The Grand River

My phone almost always travels with me when I run. It’s a good safety protocol, and I sometimes get the bonus of a great photo. That was the case a few days ago, when I ran along the amazingly still Grand River as the sun rose.

Lansing, Michigan -- View of the Grand River

It’s one of the better views I’ll ever get for a morning run.


Bad Song Parodies: “The Safety Dance”

I work on contracts related to grants programs. I also occasionally replace words in songs with other words that aren’t usually great. The following may or may not have been written on my cubicle white board yesterday morning. By me.

We do grants ’cause we wanna.
You can leave your friends behind,
‘Cause your friends don’t dance,
So they don’t get grants,
And they’re no friends of mine.

One of my co-workers is now calling this “Safety Grants.”


I’ve been ignoring this site for way too long, so it’s time to make like J. J. Abrams and reboot it.

The budget for this reboot will be way lower, and I haven’t yet picked up one of these epic uniforms.

What can you expect here? I’m honestly not sure. I’ll figure that out as I go. Until then, have a great day!
