    I wrote a little bit in the book for the first time in weeks.

If you need a place to cut out for a month and just write... fly to Denver, lock yourself in my guest bedroom and mash on those keys... we'll feed you.

    if you can’t put anybody on a moral plane, you can’t put yourself on Air Force One.


Denver couldn't hope for better skies. It's already getting moody and dusky out. So very cool...

I actually thought about putting a disclaimer in my earlier comment.... but I was on my phone and lazy...

And bananas are deceivingly sweet and pretty dang good for you. Oh... And super stupid cheap.

Mostly peaches.

A banana.


Greek yogurt if I have it.

Spinach if my wife is looking.

But seriously, peaches are a really good base. Smooth, sweet, usually inexpensive, super yummy.

    pay to get them in EMT training.

hell... offer EMT training in a high school setting for seniors who aren't on the college track? There are several options for my kids in high school here for voc-ed... they can get plumbing, electrical, diesel repair, etc. training so that when they graduate, they're ready for apprenticeship.

    My daughter wrote me a card, unprompted, during her "quiet time" (she's moving away from naps) that says "Daddy I leev u"

One of life's finest pleasures right there.

    Free Speech is not free from consequence

No couches for you! GUEST BEDROOM!

(I'm a little excited)

I had just flown to Michigan for a High School reunion. My dad stopped by the barber shop on the way back from the airport. Halfway through this haircut, the power went out. The barber finished without clippers, by the light coming in from the windows. As we made our way home a couple of miles, we kept thinking "oh wow, this is a little bigger than just that neighborhood". It wasn't for another hour or so that we realized how widespread the outage was.

Fun nerd fact - At the time, I still had a back-end dial-up ISP number I could use. I dialed in to get online, and shared my connection over wifi so my brother could be online too. There we were, a couple of nerds, checking slashdot and sending IMs by candlelight on our laptops as long as the batteries lasted.

Our power didn't come back on for three days... just in time for the reunion.
