Peering Through A Haze

Sor­ry things have been kind of qui­et here for a few days. I am cur­rent­ly under a thick fog of anti­his­t­a­mines and decon­ges­tants as a result of Rich­mond’s annu­al Spring pollen onslaught (I nev­er had aller­gy prob­lems before mov­ing here, but this annu­al yel­low blan­ket of snow is just unbe­liev­able). I’ll get my head out… Con­tin­ue read­ing Peer­ing Through A Haze

Honoring Virginia Tech

Please remem­ber those who lost their lives on Mon­day in Blacks­burg, as well as oth­ers who die need­less­ly around the world.

Ethanol Health Risks

Angela for­ward­ed me a sim­i­lar arti­cle on some resent research which states that ethanol may have greater health risks than gaso­line as a auto fuel. From the arti­cle I tagged in from New Sci­en­tist (see low­er right, titled “Warn­ing: Bio­fu­el may harm your health”), it appears that the num­ber of deaths increas­es by 185… Con­tin­ue read­ing Ethanol Health Risks

On The Events At Virginia Tech

As some of you may know, I lived in Blacks­burg for about 20 months while work­ing towards a Mas­ter’s degree in Civ­il Engi­neer­ing at Vir­ginia Tech. This was over six years ago so I’m by no means par­tic­u­lar­ly close to the uni­ver­si­ty any­more. How­ev­er, I’ve dis­cussed a lit­tle bit about my expe­ri­ences there as well… Con­tin­ue read­ing On The Events At Vir­ginia Tech

On The Day After Kurt Vonneget Died

After read­ing the news of Kurt Von­negut’s death, I decid­ed it was about time I got with it. I’ve nev­er read any­thing by him over 1,000 words long but at lunch today I went and picked up a paper­back copy of Slaugh­­ter­­house-Five. Bet­ter late than nev­er, I sup­pose. I’ve had a lot of friends rec­om­mend… Con­tin­ue read­ing On The Day After Kurt Von­neget Died

Apparantly, Mr. Iacocca Is The Leader

I read near­ly this entire book excerpt with my jaw dropped. Who would have thought that one of the most sin­cere and harsh cri­tiques of our coun­try – its gov­ern­ment, its media, and its cit­i­zens – would come from an 80’s indus­tri­al­ist leader who has long been a sup­port­er of both big busi­ness and big… Con­tin­ue read­ing Appa­rant­ly, Mr. Iacoc­ca Is The Leader

The Baby Is A…

It’s A Girl! And a healthy, active lit­tle girl at that. So, do you think our lit­tle girl looks more like me or Angela? I’m pret­ty sure she’s not done grow­ing just yet, but we think she has Ange­la’s nose and my fore­head! Either, way, I already think she’s gor­geous. I hold no hope of ever… Con­tin­ue read­ing The Baby Is A…
