We’re Back……and Better than Ever


Cognitive Dissonance


I continuously marvel how well the world works considering the staggering level of gross incompetence exhibited by all, myself included. This observation, one I find myself endlessly encountering in an ever changing light and perspective, was never more apparent than while Mrs. Cog and I struggled with web hosting issues over the last two weeks.

Yours patiently,

Mrs. and Mr. Cognitive Dissonance
