What is the proper way to celebrate my love of Sam Cooke? Today would have been his 80th birthday. Is he the reason the word “timeless” was invented? If Sam Cooke were alive he would be older than my grandparents. And that makes me think about age, especially since my birthday is also looming. But, […]

This morning I told myself that no matter what I was going to get my oil changed. I had been telling myself to make sure to get it done for the past two weeks. But there was always something that got in the way. And, by the time I remembered I wanted to get it […]

May 20, 2009

It’s officially over. We are done MovableType. Sure, we’ve had some great times. When things were working, they were really working.

What's going on

October 11, 2007

So, you may have noticed that I haven’t written anything lately. It’s not from lack of anything to write about. If I say I’ve been busy, it will sound like a cop out. But, really I have. I have a new job. I’m kind of still in shock about it. It happened very quickly. A […]
