My Leisurely Pursuit Of Grilling

There’s something special about summertime grilling that I really truly love.  Being outside when it’s nice and warm . . . The smells of summer – cut grass, flowers, and of course whatever is cooking on the grill.  It’s totally relaxing to me, and each winter I anxiously wait for the new grilling season to begin.

25 Random Things. . .

I borrowed this list below from my Facebook account.  The “rules” were to write down 25 random things about yourself and then “tag” anyone in your friends list, including the person who tagged you in the first place. . .  I normally don’t really go for these sort of things, but this was actually fun!

Things I will NEVER hear at work (as well as things I will ALWAYS hear)

I work in the IT department for a small sized company, and over time I’ve come to realize that no matter how long I will eventually end up working here, some situations will just always be true (or false depending on your perspective).  Just for fun I’ve listed a handful of things that I always (and never) will hear while performing my IT duties.

Blog Theme Change [Updated]

Well, after about  a week with the new theme I decided to switch to something else – a very modified “Revolution Streamline” theme.  The theme is a little outdated as far as it’s option settings go, but that’s where the “modified” part came into play.  After a bunch of tweaking and judicial editing, it now works properly and looks nice and professional too.

April 14th, 2011 – I was getting a little tired of the old look and decided to give the “Kubrick on Crack!” theme for WordPress a try. So far I think it looks pretty cool!  I like how you can integrate a photo or picture into your posting, very slick!  Wordpress is a very powerful tool.

New season of photography

There is something about the arrival of spring this year that has given me the “itch” to get started with this years photo season. . .  I’m not sure what it is. . .  Maybe it’s because this winter seems to have lasted months longer than normal – obviously it didn’t really, but it sure seems that it had. . .

Photographing the “SuperMoon”

As most of you who know me realize, I really like photography. But what most of you do NOT know, is that I also really like astronomy! So when this rare – every 18 to 20 year – “SuperMoon” event presented itself, I was literally drooling over the chance to take some photographs of it! Luckily, the weather gods were smiling down upon me, because there wasn’t a cloud to be seen from my viewing location!!

Getting back to basics. . .

I’m going to try to do something creative this weekend. I’ve been spending WAY too much time following politics and getting caught up in all the rhetoric. It IS an addicting thing to follow, but for me at least, it can be quite stressful as well, to the point where I sometimes actually get angry at what’s being said. Well, I’ve got to get away from all that for a bit, get back to basics and start modeling, texturing, and rendering again!!
