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

Zune 3.0 Coming

Mmmm…Zune 3.0. I’ve just read Jason Dunn’s (of ThoughtMedia.com) report on a recent Microsoft meeting discussing the Zune 3.0 release. I am completely sold on the Zune platform and am greatly encouraged by the up-and-coming release. Perhaps the greatest boon of them all is that the Zune team will be…Continue Reading

A Night of Amazing Celtic Music!

My wife and an old high school friend of ours, Colin Blackledge, have put together a most remarkable double-event concert this Friday off the downtown square in Gainesville. Seven Nations and Emerald Rose will be performing in the small pizza bar venue that is the Monkey Barrel. For $15.00, you…Continue Reading

Drunken Goat Cheese

In what could very well be a new *thing*, I’ve indulged in a new cheese never before known to my palate. It was Isi’s (soon to have a linkable blog) inspiration that got me to do this. That is, Isi talked about a “Tour de Cheese” to have a chance…Continue Reading

How I Work

The longest amount of time spent, and time I am unable to account for, is research. Depending on the topic, I may spend a week pouring through as many references I can find on a particular subject to get a real good feel for the information. If I don’t require reference material as I write, it goes much quicker.

Christmas Adam

Yesterday the family celebrated Christmas Adam with my mom. It’s a traditional ceremony for us – one that I invented when I was very young, so a long-standing one at that. Christmas Adam is the day before Christmas Eve. Christian mythology teaches us that Adam came before Eve, though there…Continue Reading
