I’m getting a Volt!

Ever since I saw the first concept version of the Chevrolet Volt, I wanted one. I’ve kinda been a Volt “stalker,” following them on the interwebs and to auto shows (Chicago only, but we hadn’t been to the Chicago Auto Show in about 10 years prior to the Volt showing up). I even signed up to do a test drive last fall (late November) but . . . → Read More: I’m getting a Volt!

It was Tuesday afternoon…

… in Aarhus, Denmark. I was at JAOO 2001 to give a presentation and run a panel. I came by myself; The Wife and kids stayed at home because they had school (one a Sophomore in High School, one in 6th grade, and one in Kindergarten).

The conference was at the SAS Radisson Aarhus, a nice venue for this meeting. I wasn’t scheduled to do . . . → Read More: It was Tuesday afternoon…

Aunt Bea, just call The Man

(Note the post time and date – I couldn’t help myself and waited until the clock switched. Now I’m going to be late to church because of the stupid festival; see below.)

Ok, Peanut is off at a church-related service project as part of the work toward being confirmed, which happens later this month. She’s been off to that since Friday, and should be back . . . → Read More: Aunt Bea, just call The Man

Is estrogen toxic in high quantities?

Yesterday there was a smidge too much estrogen-driven drama for my taste – it seemed to hit toxic levels to mere mortals (like men). See, yesterday was the Peanut’s first Homecoming Dance.

But the drama hasn’t really been limited to just yesterday – if so, it might have been tolerable. Nope, it has been going on for a couple of weeks, but at a low . . . → Read More: Is estrogen toxic in high quantities?

Darn near saw a baseball game tonight

One of the guys at my office, Eric, found a way to score an entire luxury suite for a professional baseball game. That’s pretty cool. My oldest was an intern at a law firm this summer and they took all the interns to both Wrigley and The Cell (the White Sox play in prison?) for the skybox experience. She said it was great (I wouldn’t . . . → Read More: Darn near saw a baseball game tonight

Who ARE those people?

My wife and I met in High School, dated throughout college (at different schools – that wasn’t easy), and got married when I finished grad school and she finished Pharmacy school. “That’s nice. And I care why?,” you’re thinking. You likely don’t, but it gives some context for this page.

We just had our 30 year High School reunion.

That was this past weekend (July . . . → Read More: Who ARE those people?
