Competition photos, really a link

Somara took the day off from work to participate and attend in a cake baking/decoration contest. It wasn’t one of those exaggerated, Ace of Cakes crap things. It was a matter in which the cake has to actually taste good … Continue reading

Where have I been lately?

I apologize if I haven’t posted for the last three days. Work has been draining me pretty heavily due to a couple projects plus I get some of the messier cases thanks to my experience, skill and seniority. Then we’ve … Continue reading

I missed the fireball

Actually, I didn’t hear about this until Monday night. Pretty scary looking but I knew it wasn’t a satellite since they aren’t large enough to make such visible debris. I figured it was a meteor yet there wasn’t much to … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Sheila

I can’t explain why I always keep thinking her birthday is on the 19th, but as I was going through my calendar software (good ol’ Now Up2Date), I found out it was today. Last I heard from her, she does … Continue reading

Drop 7, the new productivity killer in my life

Leave it to my friend Ethan who works for the iTunes Store to get me hooked on an application on my iPhone which makes me a hypocrite with my wife. She knows all too well how I’ve lectured her on … Continue reading

1989: My new gigs at WQFM & WMUR

In light of the inevitable Sirius XM bankruptcy (and good riddance), I’m finally getting around to writing about my failed career in radio. At the time though, things look good and I was having a better time during this semester. Just … Continue reading

I guess we do need a new TV
