I stay home for Rescue Me

Rescue Me is the best fucking show on tv– that’s right… I think it’s better than The Soprano’s, Buffy, and whatever else I used to stay home to watch. This year’s finale of The Soprano’s killed me. It was such a good series and the finale ended with a horrible thud– great expectations with a result that left you so disappointed you couldn’t believe it. Almost like building up a great, loud, bean and onion fueled fart only to soil yourself for the effort....

Blackberry is pissing me off

So I guess the new exchange update made a little issue with admin accounts. Oh well… hopefully will get it to work tomorrow. Took a break from the laptop and bought a new compact flash card for the Canon. Love it. Much faster and with the new reader, working with pictures may become fun again. Tested the flash card with a pic of century tower.

It's wet… damn wet.

Well this has to be a record… 12 days into the Hurricane season Mr. Alberto is knock-knock-knocking on Gainesville’s door. Generally, hurricanes don’t hit Gainesville with a lot of wind. The problem here, of course, it that Gainesville floods like a mother– and to top it off, we lose power on a strong thunderstorm (city owned electricity). In a city where trimming a tree is akin to sacrificing virgins, a good storm can throw limbs and trees all over the place....

It’s not my jacket…

Doc Shenkman has a saying that he… well, he says it often— It’s not my jacket that makes me look fat. The implication of course is that it’s your fat that makes you look fat. Well, it’s hard to believe that in 2000 I was much thinner and had a full head of hair. I can’t control the receding hairline, I can’t control that my facial hair is going grey. But I can control the fact that I’m more Fat Bastard than Dr....

Come Monday it Will be Allright

So I am going to try out this blogger thing. I have no idea when or how often I’ll be able to post, but what the fuck… let’s give her a try. Had a good weekend. The J4 Cruisers crew headed down to Ocala to try out a restaurant I had always wanted to try– Bella Luna. We took the long way, and a city 30 miles away was suddenly a 60 mile trip....

2016 Road Trip  [draft]

Recently, the wonderful Yeni Monroy and I took a few days away from VoIP and the bakery to take a 2,100 mile road trip. With the fantastic excuse of attending my cousin’s wedding in Annapolis, we extended the trip to include North Carolina and Virginia/DC. Off to North Carolina After getting the truck checked at my trusted mechanic, we loaded the Expedition and hit the road bright and early. Although we mostly like to take back roads, we opted to head out northbound on I-75. I had some concern about how the truck would handle… she’s a 2003 Expedition and started the trip with 207,400 miles on the odometer. I’ve never owned a vehicle with this much mileage, and although the truck was not giving any indications of trouble, the thought did cross my mind nonetheless. ...
