Record for Alanna

August 13, 2008 at 10:25 am | blabbing, music.

As a wedding gift to Alanna I decided last year that I would write and record an album just for her. I started last fall and finished with all the mastering and artwork just in time for the wedding. My plan was that everyone at the wedding would get a copy of the record. Not… Read more »

Wedding Weekend

at 10:14 am | blabbing.

Our wedding over last weekend was great. Lots of worrying about details but everything went off so well. Alanna looked beautiful, the weather held up great, lots of fun people and the crew at San Benito House was calm and super helpful. I’m kinda of amazed we didn’t get through all the alcohol and food… Read more »

Gov. signs bill decreasing pay… Just not his own.

July 31, 2008 at 10:18 pm | blabbing.

So the governor of California signed a bill today decreasing the pay of over 200,000 state workers in California until a budget could be agreed upon… Does this make sense to anybody but Arnold? I think the state controller is right to give him the finger. He and the other state senators cannot agree upon… Read more »

pickles

July 29, 2008 at 1:22 pm | blabbing, Food.

Who would put this many pickles on a salad? Have they gone pickle crazy? What are the pickles doing on the salad anyway? I think it should be a requirement that people who cook should have to eat everything that is on their menu at least once. I would like to see the poor bastard… Read more »

Busy weekend

Alanna and I got lots done this weekend. After my haircut, we went downtown on Saturday and returned some stuff for other cooler stuff that we love. We found a cool shawl for Alanna to wear with her dress at the wedding. At Macy’s we got me some cuff links and socks to got with… Read more »

Trial is over

July 25, 2008 at 12:12 pm | blabbing.

I got an email from someone who was on the jury trial with me, telling me the trial is over so I can go into my jury service a little more. I have also re-posted my snippets from the past couple of weeks. A surprising thing about my jury service is that I got paid…. Read more »

Energy Moon Shot

July 18, 2008 at 1:45 pm | blabbing, business.

Former vice president Al Gore has layed down “the green gauntlet” (kinda silly way to put it) to put America on the track to energy independence. I have been blabbing at people for years about this. Get a beer in me and ask me about energy, and I will spill out over the sides talking… Read more »

Sorry

July 14, 2008 at 10:42 am | blabbing.

I have been on Jury Duty for the past couple of weeks but this morning that all came to an end. I was ushered into court by myself in front of the lawyers and asked, on the court record, if I was in fact blogging about this trial. Oops. While there is a stipulation that… Read more »

Its all about speed

July 12, 2008 at 8:04 am | blabbing.

Over the past couple of days we have gone through the witnesses pretty fast in the trial. There have been a few times where they have let us out early because they didn’t have any witnesses lined up and everybody finished early. I’m hoping this is a good thing and that it means that we… Read more »
