Fore, and how to write a Nine.

I have a problem with the number four. I’m not sure if it’s me or our messed up language. I will often write the number 9 and people will ask me if it’s a 4, even when I have also written a number four with it. Why the problem? Look to the right. There is…

Dry.

Ever have a dry moment? Where inspiration and creativity fail you? My problem is that I feel inspired, but my creativity is in the shop. So the motivation is there to schedule the assembly hall create advertizements (flyers, radio, etc.) and get a whole bunch of folks together for an grand speech from me. No…

The Morning Stars Concert

The Morning Stars Concer June 11th, 2011

I’m part of a mens singing group called the Morning Stars. I’ve been singing with them for a few years now and I really enjoy their company…er…singing. We will be performing at the Beaverton Library in the basement (where else?) on June 13th.

Online Backup Storage

I will often work from home and as a result I have sensitive materials that cannot be lost due to power surges, equipment failure or parental failure (I’ve already lost one laptop). I had a backup drive, but it was prone to the same faults as my laptop. It was suggested I look into online…

Open Says-A-Me

In light of the positive feedback I received on my last blog* I thought I should tackle a more serious issue. It is mostly out of concern for my friends and family that I post this. I have noticed in my travels around centers of commerce something to avoid. They’re waiting for us, watching us,…

I like to think I have culture. Part of that is being artsy though I’m not into art for the sake of art. Sometimes people go out, do something weird, call it art and expect everyone to adore them. I do not. What I do take an interest in from time to time is talent.…

What Happened to Palpatine

I was digging through my old school files on my computer hoping to free up some space and I came accross this paper I had written for a fluff class that I thought fulfilled a requirement. I think I got an A on the paper, but it was only because the rest of the class…

Cinco de Mayo

Being that I lived in California for most of my life I have been very aware of this day of celebration. Mexicans and Americans alike go out and consume mass quantities of alcohol, treat women badly, play loud music and other forms of creating a rukkus. So what is this day called a holiday? It…

I Choose Horse

In my life I have known many people who either wanted a horse or owned a horse. Some of those who wanted a horse as a youth bought one as an adult. A horse is not a trivial thing like a cat. A cat pretty much takes care of itself. All you have to do…

Pepperoni & Cola Conspiracy

I have been to a large number of parties over my lifetime most of them involving children in some way. A significant portion of these parties involved Pizza and an even larger portion involved soda. Now if we stick to the generic my personal preferences on both are sausage pizza and orange soda. That is,…
