Recently as part of holding the elected officials in Kalamazoo responsible I’ve been digging through campaign finance reports filed (or not filed) by our local elected officials. Continue reading “On Campaign Finance Filings and Complaints”
As I was walking waiting for the bus downtown to come home I started smelling smoke and heard a ton of sirens in the direction of my house. As I walked a couple in the direction of home of blocks ash started falling in the downtown Kalamazoo area and the smoke got more dense.

I have a PO BOX… and for years now I get an email whenever I have mail in my PO BOX. Most of the time just like every other mailbox (or email inbox) its junk that I could care less about. So I would often hike through the rain, snow or work my way to the post office for junk mail. That is no more. Continue reading “Life Hack: USPS Informed Delivery”

We all need goals in life… and I have decided I need to make some Goals for 2017.
1. Loose Weight
I would like to get under 200 pounds. Right now I’m well north of 200 pounds of plumpness. To this I’m going to have to eat healthier, stop chugging soda and start working out.
2. Drive into a Hurricane
Yes you read that right. In 2014 I witnessed a powerful EF4 tornado and this year I accidentally drove inside a weak EF1 tornado (stupid, I know.) This year I would really like to witness a hurricane – however I will be just as happy if none make landfall.
3. Take A Cross Country Train Trip
I have enough points saved up for a cross country train trip in a private room with all meals included. I want to do that. I’m hoping to do it in spring, before the tourism season starts but still when its nice and you can get a great view.
4. Learn a New Programming Language
I’m not sure which language I would like to learn, but I would like to add to my skill-set so I can do more cool things.
5. Become a General
Yea, you read that right. This year I would like to become a general class amateur radio operator. Its a class of license you get from the Federal Communications Commission. Right now I hold a technician class license. A general class license would allow me more privileges.
I hear many people say that as a country the United States should ignore the terrible things that happen in other parts of the world and instead concern ourself with our own problems. Continue reading “Why We Can’t Ignore Terrible Things In Other Parts of the World”
