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 can get in to see… Continue reading A Night of Amazing Celtic Music!
Flattery will get you everywhere!
I just noticed that a few of my pictures had been “favorited” in Flickr by a man I didn’t know. It wouldn’t strike me normally, as I don’t know most of the people on Flickr.com, however these pictures seemed to be of a particular theme. So, yeah. The guy had been favoriting a lot… Continue reading Flattery will get you everywhere!
Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone
I broke out of my comfort zone in two big ways this weekend; both involving drumming. When it comes to personal challenges, those involving my creative efforts are the most difficult to engage. A failure at something coming from creativity is a personal one, to me. However, I don’t feel that I lost in either… Continue reading Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone
Pope *Hopes* for the Best, Pagan Babies Okay
It’s a bit late getting to my attention, but I was made aware recently of the Pope’s exoneration of pagan babies in limbo. The documentation on this subject is actually quite lengthy; I had to follow a couple of citations to other fascinating topics regarding in vitro fertilization and other immoral acts of life indignities,… Continue reading Pope *Hopes* for the Best, Pagan Babies Okay
“AA” battery acid tastes like burning. I had imagined it would be sour.
Too Zune to Tell
I got a Zune for Christmas – a wonderful gift, really. I really wanted to get into the iPod/Zen/etc. scene, but I wasn’t that interested in the whole iTunes thing. I also want video to be a comfortable size and 4:3 aspect ratio. The Zune has that, and is still pocket size and relatively inexpensive.… Continue reading Too Zune to Tell
The Red Tent
I’ve just recently finished “The Red Tent” by Anita Diamant. The book was very enjoyable, though tedious for me at first. It was actually when I could compare the story of Jacob and his family from the Bible that the story became most interesting. I enjoyed hearing the comparisons and contrasts between the two books… Continue reading The Red Tent
Celebrating our Decade Together
We had a good array of friends, both old and new, join us this weekend for our 10th anniversary celebration. I thank all of you that were able to come, and all of you that attempted but were lost (sorry, Marc). I especially enjoyed the myriad of entertainment friends could offer. Joshua Adrian performed some… Continue reading Celebrating our Decade Together
Dragon*Con 2006: Day 2
Saturday morning marked two firsts for us. One was that we were in Atlanta for DragonCon early enough to actually see the parade. The second was that we were actually in the parade! Not only that, we were part of the debut of drumming and dancing in the parade’s attendance. We got up at 7:00am… Continue reading Dragon*Con 2006: Day 2
Tuesday Marks the Day
On Tuesday we really, really start the dog food experiment. We’ve delayed long enough and the energy that persuaded us to get into this was starting to wane.
