Over the last few days I have been watching a very well defined Hurricane, Hurricane Irma on various satellite and radar sites. It is indeed a very beautiful storm to observe, but it is also a very deadly storm. Continue reading “Beauty Is Often Deadly”
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”
I’ll be honest I hate politics, and some actions last night locally in a government body just reminded me of how in my area politics is only getting worse. Continue reading “I Hate Politics”
Facebook keeps a secret profile of people… information that they gather from secret sources they don’t tell you about. Continue reading “My Secret Facebook Profile”
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”
I had a voucher for free Amtrak Travel that expired Monday, and as it was a beautiful day Monday I decided I would take an adventure through Chicago for the day. Continue reading “Chicago Trip”
I’m at the Kalamazoo City Commission Candidate Forum Continue reading “The Kalamazoo Candidates Forum”
