Gaming again

So … At the behist of my sister, I’m starting up a Shadowrun game … yes, some of us still play our games around a tabletop.  Actually, we’ll be playing around a virtual tabletop, over microphones, using computers to communicate.  It’s much easier for everyone than commuting.  We’ll see how the experiment works.


So, being as we’ll be playing online, it made sense to store our characters online.

Loving my Nook

I normally don’t brag on my toys, but I’m having so much fun with this one I thought I’d share.


A while back a friend of mine bought their daughter a Nook Color and she (their daughter) has been loving it.  We heard about it enough that my wife started to want one for herself.  I broke down and bought it, then discovered the best part: A Nook is an android device.

You can teach an old dog new tricks …

EFP News of my death has been greatly … well … slightly exaggerated.  I was in CA for an exhausting week of back to back meetings, then I got sick …

In any case, before I went to CA, I went to the optometrist.  See, I’ve been getting headaches a lot more lately, and I actually got so tired a few weeks ago that I couldn’t even focus on the book I was reading.

Expressing some feelings about KONY 2012

So … the Kony 2010 meme has left facebook and youtube, and has now attacked me from multiple directions.  I started to post a facebook status about it, but failed.  It was too long!  SO, I’m turning to my OTHER public forum, my blog.

A rose, by any other name

Would still smell as sweet.


I play WoW, and am not a goldsmith by trade ;-).  So, I’m apt to refer to what my son does as Jewelcrafting, and get him to snap at me and say “It’s called GOLDSMITHING” … complete with appropriate eye rolling.  It’s really fun!

Prayers for my Aunt

The last couple days have been hard on my extended family, and I’ve been trying to lend my hand in support.

Of girls, awards, and heroes

So, tonight was Sylvia’s Girl Scout Award Ceremony.  Just thought I’d share a couple pictures:
