BODIES, The Exhibition (Atlanta)

Tomorrow evening we’re heading out to BODIES, The Exhibition at the Atlanta Civic Center. I only just heard about it from the co-workers Friday, but it really sounded like something right up my alley. It’s being marketed as an artistic presentation of human anatomy. The models are made from human…Continue Reading

Heritage Family Library

The Heritage Family Library sent me the Young Peoples’ Atlas in the mail recently. This is one of those books that they ask for money in order to put your name in them, thereby granting you some imagined fame. It infuriates me that they’ve sent a product to my doorstep,…Continue Reading

We got Sprung

Today marks the beginning of Spring and it’s somewhat rainy and cool. Not a bad way to start spring, though we were given a week’s warmth and sunshine that makes this change a little sour. Yesterday was my son’s birthday party, and it happened to be overcast and cool. Could’ve…Continue Reading

Odd Years are Bad

Breakfast Contemplation

I stopped in at QuikTrip this morning for some breakfast and coffee. I stopped at the display housing all manner of protein and meal replacement bars. Amongst this presentation of health were the Rice Krispy treats we all long for. It turns out they have a king size version too.…Continue Reading

World of Warcraft: Fin

I played World of Warcraft for a little while – maybe six months or so. Just this past weekend I finally handed over my account to a willing addict to continue my legacy. Jeb now has two accounts to fuel his fires, one being mine. It was a good run,…Continue Reading

To Err is Beta

I thought, man! You don’t see this screen often from Google. But then I noticed the logo and all was calmed. One must remember the small “BETA” that is as integral to the Google logo as a merged Photoshop layer. It’s a crutch and a warning, though most people undoubtedly…Continue Reading

Standing on the Shoulder of Giants

A List Apart asked for readers to post their professed love for the Internet on Valentine’s Day. I did so, and found a spot among many within their post of the same. It’s an interesting group of blurbs to read through. It made me recall a lot of things that…Continue Reading
