Back in February, I wrote this post about the goings-on in my neighborhood. Someone was prepping our neighborhood for fiber optic service. At first, I though that it was Google, but later found out that it was AT&T. Fast forward to June, almost 4 months after that post and it’s a reality! On Monday of this week a nice, young lady came a callin. She knocked on the door and I went to see who it was. She had her…

I must admit that I do rather like my morning walks … when the humidity is not 99% and the temperature is in the 60s. The bugs are less active and the air feels cooler. Recently, we’ve had a pretty good run of almost daily thunderstorms and high morning humidity – the type of humidity that causes my glasses to fog immediately when transition from my nicely air conditioned house to the rain forest! There is a nice side effect…

Last Saturday, Tom Dills and I were on our own little photo walk. As we walked down one of the streets, we came upon the back of a particular building. As you can see it was overgrown with weeds, plants, etc, but for some reason, they’ve decided to maintain the structural integrity of the wall with braces. Naturally, we walked around the “insides” of the building and took pictures here and there. You know how some photographers like to take…

To my left I could hear the unmistakable sound of a woodpecker hammering on one of my neighbor’s trees, looking for breakfast. After a few minutes of hammering, he became silent. Suddenly, a red, black, and white streak appears before my eyes, zipping past me to the right and lands on the tree having the bird feeder. A short hop from one of the branches and he’s on the feeder. He grabs a seed, flies back to the branch, pecks…

To set the record straight, as a couple of folks misunderstood: I will not be moving to NYC. I’ll be staying right here in good old North Carolina. I’ve been living in the south now for 32 years and I really love the sunshine and the slower pace, moseying, and have no intention to leave it. Thanks to the wonders of technology, I can work remotely. We have video conferencing, screen sharing, e-mail, chatting, etc. All of that said, I…

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…
