Legacies

We pass bits down from generation to generation. Sometimes it’s intentional, other times it’s quite accidental. In either case, it’s unavoidable – especially in the case of parenthood. Meet, Balthazar. He’s my eldest son and new to the real social interactions of the web. It’s a scary place out here,…Continue Reading

17th Anniversary

Seventeen years ago, today, two kids started off on what would become the greatest adventure of their lives. Having proposed to my (then) girlfriend, and her reply being in the affirmative, she then asked me, “why do you want to marry me?” Among other (certainly better) answers, I told her…Continue Reading

Sharpie Liquid Pencils, for the Lose

I don’t know if you’ve tried these things out, but I gave it a go. They could be great because it appears to be liquid graphite, and erases cleaner than the real thing! However, the mixture is too prone to clog and it comes off being a cheap ballpoint pen.…Continue Reading

Tsungi Horn

I both found the answer I’ve sought and had my hopes and dreams crushed by said answer in one shot. I’ve been listening to a song by Mercan Dede for sometime now, “Book of Wings.” In it is a featured instrument – apparently Asian in nature (in my mind) –…Continue Reading

Thanks be Giving

I am thankful for baby-smell, a daughter’s love, an oldest son’s helpfulness, and a wife that’s still here with us all.

Fall Family Fun Camping Trip

Breakfast Camping Originally uploaded by Olaf. This was our third year attending the Cub Scout annual fall camping event. We only get one more year (as Webelos) before Boy Scouting – official – begins. I already know I’m going to miss these trips, but it won’t be long before Galio…Continue Reading
