Curmudgeon’s Corner: No Ifs Ands Or Buts

This week on the Curmudgeon’s Corner podcast Sam and Ivan start out with an old fashioned lightning round covering the Olympics, Gawker, EpiPens and more. Then of course they settle in to talk about this week’s developments in the race for the Presidency. Looking for your weekly fix of Clinton and Trump craziness? We have it for you here as always. Oh, and Sam complains about cars on the beach and annual reviews.

Pics from Apr 2014

April was difficult.  Started out with 979 pictures for the month.  Narrowed down to 77 in the first pass through looking for pictures worth posting. Then had to narrow it down to 30 (one per day) for this post.  The last cull was tough!  Anyway, here goes…
