15 Years Ago Today

October 30, 1993.  It was a Saturday afternoon.  Penn State had just joined the Big Ten that year and were trounced by the Ohio State Buckeyes 24-6.  The Toronto Maple Leafs lose their first game of the season after going 10-0-0.  Meatloaf’s “Bat Out Of Hell II” was the number one album.  AND – In [...]

Confession time – I’ve always loved math and numbers.  I’m a geek, what can I say.  I loved math in school.  Algebra was great, Calculus was a trip, differential equations…not so much.   But in general I love numbers.  Here’s some numbers I’ll throw out there for you: 4012 – The number of songs currently in [...]
