2010 Year in Review

Happy New Year!  This has been an absolutely amazing year for me.  It’s been a year of transformations both mental and physical.  There have been a number of very distinct visible changes in my life this year.  Most of which are centered around the quality of my life.  I’m getting healthier and going out socializing […]

Jingle Bell Run 2010

On December 5th, 2010 at 8:40 in the morning I was standing with my son and nephew on Nato Parkway near the World Trade Center in Portland, OR. We were at the starting line with a couple thousand other runners who came out to participate in the 2010 Jingle Bell Run.

Skating Obsessions

I’ve become obsessed lately with skating.  It started about three months back when a coworker of mine convinced me to throw some skates on and give it a try.  I hadn’t skated since I was a kid and even then I never really got the hang of it. Now as an adult, I am surprised […]

My Son’s First Living Arcanis Game

He did show signs of being a quick learner though and the idea of some formalized training instruction appealed to me. Eight weeks ago we started Beginner Dog […]

Synaptic System Failure

I had a truly amazing year in 2007. As the year went on, I got more and more ambitious. By Christmas I had so much going on I think the creative part of my mind just shut down. I would wake up in the morning and think about all the things I wanted to do […]

New projects and losing weight

It looks like I’ve been neglecting my blog. I’ve had allot of things going on lately and really haven’t had time to post anything about it. Among other things I’ve been trying to get episodes of my podcast out. I’m trying to do a show every two weeks and I have a schedule for it […]

Good bye grandma, I’ll miss you.

This week my grandma passed away. It was a day we knew would come but somehow it always seems unexpected when it does happen. She was my last surviving grandparent. I remember fondly sitting with my grandma when I was a kid at her kitchen table learning new card games. That seemed to be our […]
