These will follow-up my debut, Share the Moon, which got rave reviews from Continue reading “Bitter Isn’t Better”
I’ve greatly simplified this without changing any of the chords. This is intended for guitarists and other musicians, so it’s easy to glance at the music and see what you need to see, without any clutter. I also re-align the word wraps, because the “poetic” pacing, the lyrics written in rhythm, are usually done incorrectly on the popular chord website “Ultimate Guitar,” making it much more difficult a task to play the song.

I have watched hundreds of episodes of Cesar, and never once seen anything Continue reading “Why do so few dog trainers hold up to Cesar Milan’s standard? (Quora stuff)”

There are live critters on your kitchen counters, leaving disgusting Continue reading “How would you handle a mouse infestation if you were a vegan? Would your only option to be to get a cat? (Quora stuff)”
