the weather has been…

… great the last couple of days. So much so,I decided that we take a “mini pot luck” break at yesterday’s rehearsals. It was one of the few times we could just hang as a company/ There was fresh watermelon and grapes fresh from my garden as well as crackers and cheese courtesy of Dave. And to wash it down some wine and beer. Greg came by for a “gun lesson” and I think it …

I was tuckered out…

… by the time the evening rolled around. A day of web work and meetings (both the face-to-face variety as well as via the phone) really wore me down. I even moved rehearsals an hour later just to give me room to catch my breath. It’s a good thing that we have a crack stage-manager who really handled most of it for me last night. As a small reward we went to the local Baskin …

smashed to a silver…

… but a medal is a medal. I watched the game live on the internet and it was totally one-sided and reports on the game bore that out as well. Still, kudos to Lee for working his way up to the finals and to a Silver… which in itself is nothing to sneeze at. THE DAY I ended up working today. Figured that I’d knock off as much as I could at a leisurely pace. …

nearly there…

… on the computer setup front. Truth be told… I’m already there… just tweaking to my pleasure. Just the way I roll. Now the office is a shambles. LOL. I’ll get it back to a livable space soon. Lots more web/graphics work ahead today… also shooting for a web video promo. An enormous amount actually… and time sensitive at that… but I think if I apply myself and not get too distracted (as I’m wont …

the weekend was filled…

… with work on 3 computers. Restoring 1 that I’m selling. Prepping 1 that will be my primary and setting 1 up to be my editing work station. It all took less time than was anticipated. All I can say is… Thank God for the invention of external hard drives! THE “COOLER HEP” QUOTIENT So on the Beehive the other day there was a post that included this video. Yes, the story happens to be …

earthquake in so cal

It was a 5.4… so, there was a whole lotta shakin going on. I was watching some live coverage via the internet and it is kinda funny when reporters are looking for news… and there really is none… except that the quake did happen. No major devastation or “hero” stories. Though news does travel faster now with the net and some of it is pretty funny. For the most part if you live in California …

so, I fiddled around…

… and came up with THIS. I found the template from a free site… messed with it a little… created a new header… the lovely Joy filled in the content. I’m working on THIS today… which includes content as well. (I’ll let you know once it is complete.) Yes, my plate is chock full and overflowing at the moment so please forgive my sporadic visits and tardiness at replying to comments for the time being. …

time is close the waiting closer to done

This is not only in reference to several upcoming projects… but also to several personal aspects of my life. Like for instance… MY NEXT PLAY…which I think is ready to be written. Yeah, this is the one about the terrorist chef. Ideas have floated enough in my rabid mind and fermented enough to commit it to paper. Should be a fun little ditty that involves real food. Now all I have to do is block …

A couple of old features may return.

I’ve been meaning to bring back Picture Daze for a while now. First it’s a great excuse to scan in those old slowly disintegrating photographs into digital format. Plus it also gives me an opportunity to record and share some stories. So, look out for that… probably tomorrow or Monday depending on when I can get the scanner to get working again. I’m thinking that perhaps this will occur at least every other week. I …
