The Plus Side of Hyper Inflation


…at least when inflation (and possibly hyper-inflation) comes after our “stimulus” kicks in, it’ll be simple to pay off my debt. Granted, that wheelbarrow full of money that I just used to pay off my house will only buy a loaf of bread.  That will be 100% awesome!!! Does anybody really think that spending 875 billion (when the bulk of it doesn’t even hit until...

The Challenge of Industrial Design


With Amy’s business I’ve had the opportunity to work in the professional publishing world. Over the last year we’ve self-published her cookbooks and designed new tins for teas. I like to think that I’m somewhat technically competent, but dealing with professionals in those arenas was a very humbling experience. I simply don’t know anything about those worlds. As...

Coincidence vs. Providence


I reconnected with a friend of mine recently and it happened under some life changes that have been going on. We talked for a few hours and it felt great to establish those personal connections again. They told me that every time they think of the second matrix move (the sequel that didn’t suck as bad as the third one) they think of me. In their mind, I’m the general who, with...

Google Adsense


I signed up for a Google Adsense account. This is so that Google can place ads on a site and they share revenue with you when somebody clicks from your site. I am curious to understand how it all works and maybe put it on “Amy’s site”: since he gets a good number of hits. According to the docs on the Google pages, ads should start showing up in the bottom left of the site in the...

Genealogy Software


I started looking at genealogy software again. I have plenty of options for editing “GEDCOM(GEnealogical Data COMmunication)”:gedcom files such as “Gramps(Free Genealogy Software)”:gramps and “MacFamilyTree(Family tree software for the Mac)”:mft but what I’d really like is something integrated into this site for viewing and possibly updating family tree...

Blog Update…


It’s time I started blogging again. I’ve wanted to get things updated and I’ve been working on it for a few weeks getting a theme I’m happy with. I’ll be cleaning things up over the next couple of days.

I’m in Love…


!(floatRight)2!:3 I went to “Sam’s Club(Spawn of the Eeeeviiiillll Wal-Mart)”:1 yesterday to buy some steak for fajitas and as I was standing in the checkout line, a big-screen television was beckoning me (as they often do.) The line was unusually long so I had plenty of time to gawk at the screen from a distance. The colors were so much more vibrant than any other screens in my...

The Good Samaritan


We were driving home the other night and I hear a horn honk behind me. I glance in my rear view mirror to see what caused it. The guy in the car behind me is holding up a sign that says, “Tail Light Out” written on a piece of cardboard. I think to myself, “Hmmm. That’s nice of the guy.” and I wave. He then points to the right side of the vehicle to point out which...

Site Upgrade


I’ve upgraded my WordPress and Gallery installations. I’ve been tinkering with updating the theme, but I haven’t completed it yet. I figured I’d rather upgrade the core components (WordPress and Gallery) with the old theme in place. Hopefully I’ll get the new WordPress theme finished up and in place soon.
