  • “Spent Dreams and Flat Farmlands” sounds awfully foreboding, or depressing to say the least for an opening chapter to a book, especially coming from a ten-year old boy. But if you can look back to life as a ten year old, or perhaps reminisce to a favorite movie of mine, “Stand By Me” – life […]

  • I must admit, that by having the infamous last name of McDonald, it was most certainly written in the stars, or in the pages of my very embellished resume, that I was destined to work at the in-famous “Golden Arches,” of McDonald’s restaurants inc.
