So, last night Michael and I caught up over a few Bourbon’s at a TGI Friday’s down the road. The last time Mike and I visited Friday’s together? 1989. Anyway… as the evening wore on, the window showed us something I thought I wouldn’t be seeing again for a while — snow. And we’re not… Continue reading April in Ann Arbor means Snow

We’re not playing the Pyramid here, but wouldn’t that be great? Man, I miss good 70’s game shows. Give me the Pyramid and Match Game and I’m happy as can be. Anyway… Benjamin Franklin I’ve always liked Mr. Franklin. Some think he’s the only non-president on money… but those people probably think Mr. Hamilton was… Continue reading Benjamin Franklin, Motorcycles, and Ann Arbor Parking
Welcome to Fred’s weekly review for the first “real” week of 2009. What did Fred do this week? Will Fred stop talking in third person? This and many more questions await you in this fantastic update. Ok — so for the purposes of “whatever” I’m starting a week I guess on Saturday – Friday (if… Continue reading The week that was 1/9/2009
It’s a start. 😉 Over 1,000 pictures were taken in December, 2008 — perhaps due to the re-purchase of my favorite lens that died or maybe the addition of a new (fancy schmancy) flash. Regardless, many pictures were taken and as always, I like to share. I’ve selected a few and put them on the… Continue reading December 2008 Pics Posted
I learned that Colombian tradition places a lot of emphasis on Christmas Eve. Last night, after eating tamales and playing Wii at Michael’s, Yeni’s family and I returned to the house, ate more tamales with friends, and then opened presents. I received some excellent presents this year, including Spider-man trinkets and a new Harley outfit… Continue reading Christmas Day
Yesterday was a “travel day,” with all the reminders of why I do not like to fly. But, thanks to modern travel, I made it home safe and sound. The temperature last night? 1° F. Ouch. Snow in the neighborhood is piled higher than the mailboxes.
Yesterday, we woke up at 5am and headed through the snow to take me to the airport. Even after spending 5 hours on the tarmac (and being de-iced from a de-icer named Fred), I still have to say I love American Airlines. Don’t get me wrong, I do not like flying. I hate almost everything… Continue reading Headin' up to San Francisco
Notice the de-icer’s cool name? (it’s Fred 🙂 ) On my way to San Francisco to catch up with my sister, Scott, my parents, Tovah, and David!
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
