Top 5: Things You Wanted to Know About Me
The meme is apparently now a lost word; used only by uncool dads and hipless (as in the lack of being hip) half-wits. I’m getting on in years, relatively speaking, and am inclined to use such lingo as to embarrass those who would be so easily offended. For lack of better alternatives, I bring to… Continue reading Top 5: Things You Wanted to Know About Me
The Hot is Here to Stay
Well…that’s it, folks; it’s official. Summer is here and it’s not going to be getting any cooler for a while. Enjoy the longer days, bar-b-q’s, swimming, and sun. The lake still isn’t up to a satisfactory level for those using it recreationally, but at least it’s still here! Balthazar and I swam in it just… Continue reading The Hot is Here to Stay
Gainesville Revokes Local Business License
Silver Stars has been shut down indefinitely for failure to obtain a proper business permit. Funny thing is, they were given a permit to do business originally. After these several months, the City Council’s office has finally over-ruled the original permit granted.
Gävlebocken (The Gävle Goat)
In a small city north of Stockholm, 5,000 onlookers welcome a giant Goat as it is unveiled each year around Yule. For several decades now, the Gävle Goat has made a historical mark in Gävle history as it is either sacrificed or spared during the Winter. In 1969 the goat was burned on New Year’s… Continue reading Gävlebocken (The Gävle Goat)
The Lumberjacks were Here
This morning a guy with a fluorescent-green shirt came to the door a little after 8:00am. “It’s a little too early to be sporting that color,” I thought. Apparently, after 7 or 8 years now, it was time for the local officials to take notice of a small stand of Mimosa trees I had reared… Continue reading The Lumberjacks were Here
Silver Stars: A Sensual Boutique
It was about a year ago that I wrote about Gainesville’s decision to close its doors to the occult. If you’re on the business end of the occult, maybe now is a good opportunity to try out your entrepreneurial venture again! Gainesville is now the happy home of one Silver Stars: A Sensual Boutique. This… Continue reading Silver Stars: A Sensual Boutique
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 a picture of my wife… Continue reading Status Upgrade: “Celebrity”
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 can get in to see… Continue reading A Night of Amazing Celtic Music!
“…and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.”
In Gainesville recently, I witnessed the burning bush. And behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was consumed, and the fire department put it out. I don’t even think they waited for the words of the prophecy.
