Vietnam: Discovering My Mother’s Homeland

As children, we think we know everything there is to know about our parents.  Our parents have always been parents and before they were parents, they were preparing to become parents.  As adults, we begin to grapple with the reality that the people who raised us lived full, sometimes unbelievable,

Dan’s Top5 Internet Finds IS BACK (8/16/2016)

Hey! Remember me?! The last Top5 I did was a while ago...actually, it was 4/20 of last year! Turns out I forgot my username and password to NetSideBar.com and I was too lazy to go through the process of getting those back, so I just stopped doing it for over a

Stuck Between Coasts

Despite the gridlock of beltway traffic, stuffy Metro cars, and polarizing partisan politics, I love Washington D.C.. I’m a Los Angeles native, (well, L.A. county anyways) and I moved to DC five summers ago looking for adventure and employment. I can still remember walking into the wall of humidity outside
