Back from the other side

And, no, I don’t mean the Dark Side, but rather, I went to Indonesia.  On the way over there we had a stopover in Guam.  Guam was a nice overnight stay; my friends and I didn’t even notice a 7.2 level earthquake that was only 200 miles offshore because we were in the middle of […]


S–A–T-U-R–D-A-Y NIGHT! S–A–T-U-R–D-A-Y NIGHT! Well so much for the Clash, but it is Saturday night now. When I woke up this morning it was a nice and sunny Friday in Houston. We went to the airport for a flight to Honolulu and then on to Guam where we landed about 2 hours ago, but somewhere […]

So Cal and the OC

I just went over to California for a few days with a friend, and found it interesting that LA was low on the list of things to do. We flew there and went to Santa Monica for lunch (which was really good Greek food, by the way, and a thanks to Danny for the suggestion), […]
