As a Multi-Millionaire…

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

My wife and I like to think strategically about our future.  Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest.
In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the money.  The following is an ongoing [...]

Friday, June 20th, 2008

I’m not much of an activist, but I have taken action in support of our environment.  As of this past Monday, I began what I hope to be a consistent plan to reduce my gas consumption, reduce mileage on my car, and increase my fitness level.  I am currently riding a bicycle for the most [...]

We’re at Chik-Fil-A this morning for some Black Friday breakfast when I see a familiar face/figure in our midst.

LOL Code

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

Script Kiddies beware. Adam Lindsay has begun an effort to replace your l33t speaking ways with a rudimentary development language (lolcode) using the same coded phrases you disrespect your mothers with (you text your mom with that hand?). As a demonstration of his awesomeness, Lindsay offers this example of a simple count loop:

Saturday I took a workshop with Raquy Danziger of Raquy and the Cavemen. She’s touring for her latest album release, “Naked.”
I’ve been looking forward to this workshop since before it was actually being offered with her busy touring schedule. Perseverance paid off and the schedule was finally updated to include Atlanta as a [...]

…And upon the third decade of life, such an elaborate scheme was laid upon the woolen eyes of their victim.
Never before have I been so bewildered and pleased in the same breath. Here’s the skinny on one of the greatest sting operations of all times.
Jeff calls me early in the month of February to [...]
