Is Big Brother Really Watching Me? - Bob Ulm

I’m not a big conspiracy theory fan. I don’t believe the government faked the moon landing in 1969.   I don’t think Adolph Hitler escaped to Argentina.   I’ve never been a guy who’s worried about our government, or any other government, having Continue reading →Read More

We Tribe Fans Remain Hopeful - Bob Ulm

What Makes A Service Animal A Service Animal? - Bob Ulm

My Daily Walk - Bob Ulm

I woke up to an almost balmy 23 degrees at 1:25 this morning and headed out to walk my 1-mile trek to work in the warmest temperatures since Christmas day.  It was still cold by any standards, except perhaps in Siberia or Alaska, but it was refreshing to Continue reading →Read More
