This morning I’d like to provide a quick update to those who are interested. I’ve been seeking full time employment, and have had several interviews over the past month or so. Three of the interviews were with a technology company that has offices in North America and Europe, one of which is here in Central Florida. The interviews have gone well, and I’m hopeful that I’ll be joining the team as a Systems Administrator. It’s… [Read more]

Taking a few weeks off…
This morning I decided that I need to take a few weeks off from blogging to focus my full attention on some other important maters. As much as I wish this was a vacation, it is not. Quite the opposite, in fact. If I have time I may pop in and post a blog here and there, and post on the forums. Thanks for understanding. Be well, and see you all soon!

Quick blog, Sonny to vet for platelet count
I overslept this morning. Thankfully Lisa woke my lazy ass up at 6:30, “Hey, Sonny has an appointment this morning, right?” He sure does, and this is a big one. It’s been a week since his platelets were tested, and so we’re really hoping for a nice improvement. Last week his platelet count improved from zero to 31 after just 2 days, so hopefully he’s at, or approaching, a normal range (about 200-500). Sonny’s behavior… [Read more]

Black Pepper Tofu Stir Fry: a mixed bag
Last night Lisa and I teamed up in the kitchen for another culinary adventure. This time out we worked on a brand new dish: Black Pepper Tofu Stir Fry (vegan). The results were good, but there were a couple of things we are going to change the next time we make it. First, the good news: the sauce was bang-on! We wouldn’t change a thing. We used soy sauce, Sriracha, maple syrup, minced garlic, fresh… [Read more]

Aukey Bluetooth earbuds after 2 months of hard use
As most of you know, I’ve struggled to find a wearable digital music solution that can actually handle being bathed in sweat on a daily basis. For years I went through these often pricey gadgets like disposable razors. These are some of the products I’ve tried, and had fail. I’ve included body counts, since I usually got replacements under warranty (or was within the return window). SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip – Body Count: 4 (Discontinued,… [Read more]

Eating vegan this week; A couple of great new dishes yesterday!
I only have one week’s worth of chicken breasts remaining in the freezer, but I decided not to defrost them over the weekend. I cooked up the second-to-last batch of six chicken breasts last week, and I found that I didn’t really enjoy them that much. All last week Lisa and I were pining for the awesome new vegetarian and vegan dishes we’ve been making lately, so I just couldn’t bring myself to defrost the… [Read more]

Close call with a wasp on yesterday’s ride
Saturday was a yard work and project day. I guess I underestimated how much work needs to be done around here, because there was still lots left to do at the end of the day. The plan on Sunday was to do my morning ride, and then finish up the remaining projects. After I got back from yesterday’s ride I was sitting at my desk trying to work up the motivation to get back to… [Read more]
