Comments Off on Interesting interview tomorrow…

I wrote interesting because we watched Shrek the Halls last night, and the interview is in a land Far, Far Away. Apparently skipping right past HR and to the President directly, so that’s also kinda interesting.

That’s just weird…

Comments Off on That’s just weird…

Was looking through some of the web stats for the blog, and since the post a while back about my once-again broken little toe, that subject has been one of the biggest sources of search engine hits to the website. The funniest of them all was a search of “broken tow” 45 degrees, just as […]

Comments Off on Taylor’s death a grim reminder for us all

Taylor’s death a grim reminder for us all (link to original story) The numbers say it likely was a black man, and Jason Whitlock believes that is a crime in itself…but his reasoning, as a black man, will surprise you. He calls it the Black KKK, and his article is simply astounding to read, especially […]

Comments Off on The job search…

Very strange–haven’t been in this situation before, so it both exciting and unnerving at the same time. But the fact that the fam is supportive makes all the difference in the world.

Why, you ask?

Comments Off on Why, you ask?

I’ve had quite a few variations of that question since yesterday. I suppose that is to be expected. But for now, there’s no compelling reason to go into it. Simply put, I was under a fully at-will contract, and I chose to terminate it. Hard feelings? On my part, no. Disappointment, yes…but that’s another subject. […]

Comments Off on I quit.

I quit my job today. I’d never done that before without giving the 2 weeks notice and having something already lined up, but a situation came up…and well, I did. It’s been a pretty difficult year for the family, but very happy as well….with Josh’s birth, then hospitalization, Mika’s eye injury, JoAnn’s surgery, and now […]

Comments Off on Kids are not eco-friendly!

Apparently having children will soon be politically- and environmentally-incorrect, especially if Al Gore’s head (and pocketbook, BTW) gets any bigger. Woman Aborts Child To Help Save the PlanetExcerpt:“Having children is selfish. It’s all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet,” Vernelli told the Daily Mail, adding she believes bringing new life […]

Thanks for visiting…but who are you?

Comments Off on Thanks for visiting…but who are you?

Just back from some holiday shopping and checking email and web stats for the blog and for the Northwest Christian Directory. Noticed something very much out of the ordinary–someone in Tacoma did a google search of my name and tacoma, which linked to this blog…and then spent quite a bit of time reading. Also linked […]

Thanksgiving…

Comments Off on Thanksgiving…

Aside from the lunatic fringe running Seattle and their social engineering plan for Thanksgiving (note in article that even Native Americans disagree with the silly distortion of the truth), there is plenty to be thankful for today. This list is ongoing throughout the day, so be sure to check in often or refresh throughout the […]
