End of an era

It's been seven and a half years since I got this car. It's been mostly smiles and trouble free miles, but now it's time for something new. Kieran was just over a year old when I got it, now he's trying to drive it (illegally, someone call the cops).

See ya round, old friend.

What a horrible site!

Yea, I'm talking about this one. Life has been busy, but it's mostly self-inflicted at this point.

I'm hoping to get a new ride in the next couple of weeks, and we're starting to look at finishing our basement a little more seriously. There's always work stuff going on for both of us, which of course I can't talk about until after stuff happens, and the kids are enjoying the last few weeks of summer.

K is starting up a magic class this week, and I'm pretty sure he's going to ask how to make his brother disappear. Those kids really need to get back into school. AB is binge-watching Lost right now, even though he keeps saying it's stupid, I think he watches it like 6 hours a day.

We went out last weekend and saw Spiderman, which was pretty good. We've been going to the movies on a monthly basis, which is way more than we ever have. We probably just miss our basement home theater. I know I certainly do.

Without getting too technical, I'm going to try and pry this blog out of Google's hands this week and move it to Amazon Web Services. It should be a lot of fun for me, but we'll see how it goes.

Talk to you on the other side!

RIP Chris Cornell


RIP.

Certainly an incomparable voice that weaved it's way through many of my days as a young man. He'll be missed.

Tough Mudder

I had other stuff to post up, but my "friend" just talked me into doing the Tough Mudder this fall. Plenty of time to train for it, right?



Shenanigans.

Upon being asked, my first thought was "why not?".  Then he told me it was a 20 obstacle, 12-mile race.

I then responded, "so it's a relay?"

His response was laughter.

Yea, this'll be something.

Deleting facebook

https://techcrunch.com/2017/01/13/will-the-last-person-to-leave-social-media-please-turn-off-the-light/

That's a great read, especially given how bad people are acting on FB these days.

I'll post something more original in a bit. Life is good otherwise!

New Year's Restitution

December was not kind to the waist line. I was/am ok with that, and now it's time to jump back on the horse. No booze, limit carbs, increase protein, good fats, and water intake. It's pretty simple really, except for the fact I live in the US, where everything is coated with carbs.

I'm having lots of eggs for breakfast, and turkey patties for lunch. I need to increase my veg intake too, which is easy if I go up to Hen House and put together a salad, but that's pricey to do day in and day out.

I've already lost 3.8 pounds in 5 days, but that's most likely because I was feeling like Augustus Gloop the whole month of December. Between turning 40, NYE, Christmas, T-day, the Chicago trip, there were plenty of opportunities to imbibe and eat lots of good food.

So enough about that I suppose. Going to have a jam session tonight. I think there is going to be six guitarists. That's a lot of six-stringed wankery going on. I suppose our "set list" is pretty low key though. Hopefully we can get Gold Dust Woman in, but it'd be nice to have a bass and drummer to keep things moving along.

Just a little something to put you in the mood.


That's it for now. I probably have more stuff, but I'm not up for it. This blog post took almost all day since I got distracted for 8-ish hours (work).
