Haven’t had any more snow since yesterday. It hasn’t melted either but the weather forecast had called for five to eight inches overnight but it didn’t happen. Kids were disappointed because they had to go to school. Roads still have some slush on them but reasonable navigable. I’m curious if my daughter has seen much […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s Thanksgiving and I want to take this opportunity to give thanks for the good things in my life and the good people in my life. I am thankful that both my parents are still alive. At their age they do have some health issues but nothing real debilitating or immediately life threatening, so I […]


Feeling pretty bumbed out today. Between all the server problems over the weekend, the scare with my wife, etc. I guess I should explain that. Friday on the way back from fixing a server, she had a sudden onset of extreme vertigo and was hearing “static” that seemed to be coming from inside her head […]

It Worked…

It worked, in the middle of the day even! The old blogger had gotten to where the only time I could publish reliably was 4 AM.

Edward In Concert

My youngest son at a school concert.The one directly in the center of the photo.Doesn’t he look just thrilled?


These are some images our house and immediate surroundings. This is the deck in the back complete with broken washing machine. It ate it’s bearings the other day and we obtained another for free that was advertised on CraigsList but haven’t quite figured out how to get rid of this one yet. This is the […]

Delayed Birthday Gift

Carl, my oldest son, who is also moved out (but unlike my daughter I get to see and talk to him frequently), and a friend of his, Jeremy, gave me a late birthday present in the form of a couple of tweeters. It happened that Jeremy had some sitting around he wasn’t using that just […]

Election Results

Glad to see the Democrats got control of the House, hope the Senate follows. Hopefully this will signal and end to the Iraq war, the price gouging by the oil companies, and much of the corruption. I sure hope now that the Democrats have control of the House, they will allow the impeachment petitions brought […]


Very cool resource, found groups for Chinese, so an opportunity to get together and practice and learn.

Thank you.

I want to thank Eric for letting me know about I was amazed at the variety of interests represented there, many things that I am interested in. So that will give me something to pursue. I also want to thank the girls at The Slip in Kirkland, for being so nice to me when […]

No Hangover

Surprisingly, I suffered no hangover from our outing at The Slip last night. The two girls that were working that night were long time employees that recognized us. Had just two drinks but they made them really strong and was very toasted by the time I got the second down. Of coarse I don’t drink […]

Birthday, Mood, Dreams

Somewhat optimistic mood has carried over to today, even though there is absolutely nothing material that I am aware of that should be the grounds for that. Maybe it’s just the feeling that a really shitty year is behind. Had some pleasant and fun dreams for a change too last night instead of the usual […]

Finding Meaning & Happiness

I am not being successful at finding meaning and happiness in my life again. My daughter has been gone for a month and a week now, and I still have multiple crying spells during the day. I’m semi-ok, then something reminds me of her in the past, here, and I lose it. My wife would […]
