Since the world is insane and there's no such thing as enjoying travel any longer...
Ahhhh, rainy day. I'm all gamed out, took a nap, spent some time with my favorite person in the universe (Paulina) and now just relaxing. Decided to plumb the depths of some of my mini projects researching what causes inversion loss (DC/AC) and... it's hopeless. There are waaaaaaay smarter people that me that can't figure it out so I'm just going to pause that.
I ran across pics of my 50th birthday trip to Japan and Vietnam and figured it might be nice to put those up along with some of the more salient points about Japan that I discovered. Like everyone there is super polite (least those that I met), it's astonishingly clean and petty crime is seemingly just totally absent. And Dirty Harry the Grumpy Tour Bus Guy is out of control! Anyway, here's some more of the story.
Dirty Harry. He called himself Harry.

She apparently had a heart attack and passed away.
The world is missing an Angel.
RIP my friend Mona.

My Mother, if that is her real name, makes delicious tasty morsels of pure ecstasy commonly known as Hello Dollies.
|Not shown actual size|
To say that the Hello Dollie is delicious is like comparing Dr. Ruth to Jessica Alba. They are, in a word, heavenly. Some kind of graham, buttery crust on the bottom, with chocolate and then this indescribable buttery sweet caramelized layer topped with coconut. Oh and interspersed with chocolate kisses or some kind of chocolaty nugget things. It just makes me want to cry not having one right now.
Lots has changed. But there are STILL no flying cars. Dammit. Regardless, I have some help for JP finally so I decided to do a little housekeeping and visit my old friend. Might write a little again. Who knows.

I sure did enjoy typing stuff on this blog. Enjoyed learning and doing the one thing that I dreamed of someday pursuing, writing.
But life gets in the way and the next thing you know you're an old bastard and although you're a pretty happy guy, you realize that there's just a whole different set of priorities that come with really growing as a person and a family.
But I still thought about coming back periodically and putting my thoughts on this wonderful, fun and sometimes elucidating thing called a blog.
Well, I am one hell of a happy guy. Found a wonderful (and really, wonderful) girl, have two little doggies and business is going well (in spite of the prevailing crap economy lol).
I did a little traveling this last year and I want to put some of the trip up. Why not put it up here?
|Sweet P at O'Hare ready to board, first leg to Japan|
|We flew Japan Airlines and it was simply the best flight I've ever been on. Super polite, extra comfortable seats, we drank like fish and they didn't care! Great flight, I highly recommend it.|
|Me in my underwear at 4am talking to the guys at the office. She couldn't resist.|
|We visited Mt Fuji|
|You'd think I could figure out how to rotate this. But apparently not...|
|This was the last pic because it was, I kid you not, 28 degrees and there was a 40MPH wind. The cold was unreal. Literally took your breath away. I ran back to the warmth of the store thing after this. Yes I am a wimp.|
