R.I.P. Lemmy Kilmister
First off, it's impossible to continue without first expressing my sorrow of the loss of Lemmy Kilmister in late 2015 and David Bowie earlier this month. Both of these artists were one-of-a-kind in their relentless dedication to their craft.  They also taught us the proper way to enjoy the spoils of one's own respective success (i.e., sex, drugs and...). Lemmy and David were two originals who each lived extraordinary lives and we remain in awe of them.

With February less than two days away, we here in The Mitten State are in what you might call semi-suspended animation. We go to work only because we have to and put off whatever errands we can in order to continue binge-watching TV whilst curled up in the fetal position. Those of us lucky enough to have pets achieve a level of warmth that is, in a word, heavenly.

Long story short, the ol' cornhole business in these parts tapers off quite abruptly once the snow starts to fly. The down-time affords us the time to refuel our batteries, do anything but think about Lemmy Cornhole for awhile, and then start planning Summer 2016!

That's why I've shuttered the store that I've been hosting on Shopify. It's only $30 a month to maintain, but I run a tight ship and that money can be put toward something else useful to the cause. In the meantime I'm gonna give Etsy a try, as I discovered that it offers many of the same features that Shopify offers.

THE GOOD: That's $30 a month I save.

THE BAD: Etsy doesn't provide any sort of custom URL, so no directing www.lemmycornhole.com to my Etsy shop (which I'm woefully behind in stocking, forgive me). By directing www.lemmycornhole.com here, my hope is that it'll be easy enough to direct you to my shop from here...I hope.

Ah well, "life...the eternal experiment".
