Well hello there everybody! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I wanted to let you know about changes I’ve been making to my website. I’ve decided to make my blog the centerpiece of the site so it is more visible to the rest of the world. One of these days, I’m going to get serious about writing something everyday, and this reorganization helps make those writings more visible.
I have also added a new email subscription feature for my blog feed. You can click on the Email Subscription link in the sidebar of my blog or simply click here.
I’m excited about these new features, and I hope you like them too. There will be more changes to come as I incorporate some of the web’s latest capabilities into my site.
Thanks for stopping by!
So, I was in Atlanta a couple weeks ago for work, and I was there the week of the primary or runoff elections for Congress. I remembered some great comments my brother made several months ago regarding Congresswoman McKinney. Well, we can all celebrate her loss and hope that someone with more intelligence and class will represent that district and our country. Well, we can at least hope whoever ends up representing that district will bother to where his Congress pin when walking through security.
Here’s that picture of my babe. If you know her, this picture will make perfect sense to you. Some day, I’ll pull this picture out and show her friends to embarrass her. Can’t wait!
I know it’s been quite a while since my last post so I decided to write about my kids. Here’s a great picture of my little buddy. My wife took the picture one afternoon along with some great pictures of my daughter. I’ll post a great picture of her shortly.
Okay, so I’ve been meaning to blog about this for quite some time. Being a relatively new California resident, I have noticed that the California State Legislature tends to push all of the tough political decisions back to the people of the state. I’m talking about the proposition process.
A large number of propositions have made it onto the ballots since we’ve moved out here. These propositions represent very difficult decisions that should be made by well informed, professional lawmakers.
Based on my observations of California politics so far, these propositions usually turn into huge advertising opportunities for the special interest groups that represent each side of the issue. The result of the proposition comes down to which side had the most effective advertising.
Average voters do not have the time or expertise to make educated decisions about these propositions. The lawmakers in Sacramento should do the job of the people and make the tough decisions that will determine the future of the state. Deferring to the advertising muscle of special interest groups is no way to run a state.
Hi everybody! As promised, I finally have some new photos of the kids for you to check out. Now that summer is almost here, and school will be out, I’m sure the picture taking will increase exponentially. Check back often for updates.
Okay, I’m sure many of you will think I’m a little wacky to be so excited about this, but I have some fantastic news to report.
We have finally found our camera!
Now that we’re back in business, we’ll be taking lots of new pictures, and I promise to post them as soon as I can. Stay tuned for new images.
Hi everybody! I just listened to Liquid Soul’s new album, One-Two Punch. It’ll take a few listens before everything sinks in, but I am very impressed so far.
For those of you that are not familiar with Liquid Soul, it’s a great band out of Chicago. When the band first came out, it was thrown in to the acid jazz category, but really, it’s almost impossible to pigeon-hole Liquid Soul into any genre. Their albums and live shows are a mixture of jazz, funk, dance, rap, rock, blues, latin, soul, R&B . . . the list goes on and on.
For long-time fans of the band, this latest album will seem like a logical next step in the band’s evolution. If you listen to their albums in chronological order, you can definitely notice a pattern.
One-Two Punch contains one of the coolest songs I’ve ever heard: Kong. None other than Vernon Reid from Living Colour sits in with the band on the track, and it really smokes. For me, this song alone justifies the price of the album.
Do yourself a favor and check out Liquid Soul’s latest work on iTunes.
For those of you who have been anxiously awaiting new pictures from me, I finally have something to offer. Check out the photos section of my website for some new pictures of the No-man. We’re working on getting some new pictures of Ky, and I’ll post them as soon as possible. Enjoy!
My buddy, Terry Brown, has a great blog about politics and basically any other topic that you could ever imagine. He’s a great writer, and his blog is entertaining to say the least. Check out the Lazy Revolution when you have a chance. I guarantee that you’ll enjoy it.
