Yesterday, Thanksgiving Day, I took a nice stroll around the area, some 5 miles or so. On the way, I walked down one of my favorite little greenways, which happens to be behind a shopping area. All was calm. I thought of how much hustle and bustle that there would be come Friday, not just any Friday, but the fabled, Black Friday! The other day, my Spanish teacher and I discussed this concept. It has made it to Guatemala, believe…

One of many things to be thankful for

We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have – for their usefulness. Thomas Merton A happy Thanksgiving to all. I sincerely hope that each of you can take a few moments to make a mental list of all that you have to be thankful for. Heck! Just by visiting this blog…

There are many scenes that I love from the movie Office Space, but this has to be one of my favorites (UNCENSORED).

WTF does that mean???!!! ~Michael Bolton – Office…

Easy as floating on the lake.

I used to sell all of my used camera equipment on eBay; however, as fleaBay evolved, they became more and more buyer-centric, almost to the point where the seller had no protection from unscrupulous buyers. You’d sell, then in order to get your money, you had to have proof of delivery and then positive feedback from the buyer. If the buyer did not provide any feedback, you’d have to wait 10 days or so to get your money. Should the…

This is Juli├ín. My Spanish teacher’s son. One thing that you can say about him is that he does not lack enthusiasm. He’s got it by the truck load. This is kind of how I felt after scheduling my appointment to get my vaccinations ┬ábefore heading to India. I felt quite differently after I found out how much they cost! Jeez! And insurance won’t pay for them as they are for non-business travel. Seems that nearly every disease that you…
