As a Multi-Millionaire…

My wife and I like to think strategically about our future.  Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest. In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the…Continue Reading

Threadless Scoring

So I learned today that my impression of the way Threadless submissions were scored was entirely by the public and finalized immediately after your time was up. Turns out, I’m way off. Like 83 days off. A submission can stay in the “choice” bucket forever, it seems. I was told…Continue Reading

Lennart Green Magic Amazes TEDrs

Lennart Green, the foremost close-up card magician of the world, dazzled the audience of TED 2005. I caught the video today on my Zune and was thrilled. His show is very entertaining, quick witted, and his foreignness is close to my heart (Green is from Gothenburg, Sweden). The TED video…Continue Reading

Where’s “My” Community?

I am imagining a better WordPress. For those of you who don’t know, it’s the engine behind Gradin.com, as well as countless other blogs on the Interweb. I have been using WordPress for several years now and I really enjoy it. Its many features have grown, and grown on me.…Continue Reading

I’m a Climate Witness

I was contacted a while back by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), originally through Flickr from a picture I posted on the severe drought conditions around Lake Lanier. I was invited to write a “Climate Witness” story to tell the world about how the climate has changed in northeast Georgia…Continue Reading

Twitter Updates for 2008-08-09

Holy moley! You can’t go wrong with 2008 Tai Chi masters in a sychronized routine!!! # Is it just funny to me that they have “tremendous national pride” having just gotten some astronauts in space a couple of years ago? # I’ll bet the Bejing Olympics fireworks blow Disney World…Continue Reading

Threadless Submission (Critique)

I am planning to start posting more submissions to Threadless for consideration in their shirt designs.  Their methods have matured so much since my earlier submission and purchases!  They now have the ability to allow artists to submit designs for critque prior to final publishing.  It’s a great way for…Continue Reading

The Year is 2035…

Perhaps some of you are aware of Charles Lindbergh’s other work.  Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1927, but a few years later he was able to get some time with the surgeon, Dr. Alexis Carrel to discuss some common interests.  It turns out that Lindbergh believed it to be…Continue Reading

Zune 2.x

You may recall that I had written up the Zune Wish List a couple of months after I received mine in December of 2006. I took the time to assess my needs and what the Zune hardware and software could do to meet those needs. It has now been nearly…Continue Reading

Status Upgrade: “Celebrity”

An associate from work recently pointed out to me that the likelihood of the names, “Fox, Olaf, and Balthazar” from Gainesville being someone other than my family is a losing bet. A bit like solving the geometric theorem that three points make the line, I presume. It turns out that…Continue Reading
