A couple of weeks ago, I started a new job with MLBAM. Major League Baseball Advanced Media. MLBAM was announced in the beginning of the year of 2000. All of the Major League Club owners voted to centralize all of Baseball’s Internet operations into this one independent company. It’s amazing the amount of technological depth that MLBAM has as well as the breadth that they cover. Of course, we cover Baseball, but there’s also hockey, wrestling, soccer, video streaming for…

Now that I’m working from home again, 100%, I am carving out a new routine. A routine that will allow me to get a bit of exercise, relaxation, and a bit of photography. In general, I get up very early, around 5:00 AM. When it starts getting light, I hit the road and do my walk. I try to do 5 miles/day. When I return, take a shower, fix breakfast, and head out to my patio to sit and watch…

There’s a new kid in town, the Leica M-D. It’s billed as the purist’s camera, giving the photographer nothing but the essentials and the freedom to focus on creativity and capturing the decisive moment. Man! I love marketing!

So, basically, this is similar to a film camera and it costs the same as M9, about $6,000 USD…

I’ve had an internal debate for a while as to whether to post this or not, but finally decided to just in case it might help someone going through a cancer diagnosis. I think that it’s really all about attitude. For me, it’s been very easy and I’m feeling absolutely great. So, on with the story: Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much…

When people travel and they return, there seems to be quite a bit of conversation about the food that they had while on vacation, whether that be in New York, Mexico, Australia, or Bangkok. Somehow, the conversation turns to food. 🙂 Now, I am not about to talk about something high brow, like filet mignon, or sautéed duck breast and the perfect wine. Nope! I’m talking about the yard bird, in particular, fried chicken! When Vanessa and I were in…

Hidden in the bustling metropolis that is Marion, NC there is a restaurant named Bruce’s Fabulous Foods. Even though Marion is some 100 miles from Charlotte, I’d heard, on more than one occasion about this iconic institution. I’m sure that they’ve also heard about it in places like Asheville, NC and as far north as Huntersville, NC. 😀 If I remember correctly, the first place that I heard it was from my friend, Tom Dills. Tom had mentioned that each…
