You have to love technology today. My Blackberry can take video, pictures, and play MP3’s. Plus, unlike my iPhone, my calls don’t drop. Granted I’ve only had the phone 2 days, but I’m very impressed so far. This video is taken from my Blackberry while taxiing out to the runway at Detroit’s DTW airport. Sadly,… Continue reading Taxiing on a Snowy Runway
No much to report on a very busy mid-week. We received a big snowfall last night, which found myself prepping Yeni’s car for work this morning. Can’t say I’m enjoying the though of repeating that action for the next several months. It was c-o-l-d, cold. Oh, and snowy.

Was time for a change. Plus now I can post from anywhere using the iPhone. Like the gas station. 🙂

Will be great to see them, and to get there I will fly from Gainesville to Charlotte… Charlotte to Phoenix… Phoenix to Eugene… then Eugene to Las Vegas… Las Vegas to Charlotte… and Charlotte to Gainesville. I’m on leg… Continue reading Heading out to Eugene, OR
So I haven’t been sleeping well. No real reason that I can tell… happens time to time… we all have it now and then. So, I know the one thing that always makes me really happy is to get on the bike and just go. So Sunday I put on the leather vest, grabbed the… Continue reading Sunday ride to nowhere
