I’m one of the more romantic dudes you’ll come across. My iPod is filled with love songs by artists like Rick James and Van Halen. What sane man would deny being romantic? Ladies, if you ever meet a man who says that he’s not romantic,…

Quiet Storm Surf Shop: Always Looking For New Things

In life, it’s best to have an outline instead of a plan. The gods laugh at our plans. Plans do not adapt well to increases or decreases in opportunities. Plans don’t roll with obstacles or rise with stepping stones affably either. Plans are rigid; life…
