I know what you're thinking.  You're thinking "My god Dave...don't you have a life?  A job?  Do you literally do nothing but sit around and write blog entries all day every day?" Job?  Yes.  Life?  Depends on who you ask. ...

So this being the first blog entry, I had to share my favorite story. Amazingly enough, when I share this story in public, at an event, or at a lunch, everyone knows exactly who I am talking about. Pretty...
