About the Author

Will Truman (trumwill) is a southern transplant in the mountain east with an IT background who bides his time taking care of their daughter while his wife brings home the bacon. You will probably be relieved to know that he does not generally refer to himself in the third-person except when he's writing short bios on his web page.

    The ADHD led me to something about oil drilling.

    Whenever people claim ADHD doesn’t exist, they either seem anti-science New Agey, or at least to have a philosophy that does not hold people should have to work. The “Do what you love …” hypocrites. I would like to stick them with Little Mr. Tone for a few weeks, homework and all, and see how they come out. But since it’s a neurologist, I’ll give it a chance.

      Link fixed (here it is). His argument is that everything we call ADHD has a different underlying cause (sleep deprivation, for example).

      Expect a post on “Do What You Love” this week.

        Over there, I said that in Scott Adams latest book (the one I was reading when we met) he said that when he worked for a bank, he was told to NEVER lend money to someone who was “following his passion” trying to open a business.

        BTW, have you decided if you will be attending a certain basketball game?

          My post is longer!

          It’s looking like there will be three of us from the Truman-Himmelreich clan. Still interested? If not, but everything goes according to plan otherwise, we could maybe do breakfast or something while I’m in town.

    Wait, he’s of homework age now? Have I known you for that long?

Queenland

Greetings from Stonebridge a fictitious city in a fictitious state located in a tri-state area in the interior Mid-Atlantic region. We're in western Queenland, which is really a state unto itself, and not to be confused with Queensland in Australia.

Nothing written on this site should be taken as strictly true, though if the author were making it all up rest assured the main character and his life would be a lot less unremarkable.
