The view from my balcony around 5pm. Well, if I’d changed the view to black-and-white and cranked the contrast: That’s my car in the foreground. Nice day–overcast, cold, windy, on-and-off flurries. Not the sort of weather I’d like to see every day but invigorating nonetheless. Don’t think I’d want to live someplace where they don’t…

Can’t Win for Losing

Monday, November 17th, 2008

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the San Diego Chargers 11-10 yesterday–good. It was the first 11-10 game in NFL history–interesting. And hardly anyone is talking about either of those tidbits. That’s because the big story was the last play of the game, and what did (and didn’t) happen. The Chargers tried one of those Cal-vs-Stanford multi-lateral…

Budgeting for Vowels

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

I got busy yesterday and didn’t post anything. I could make excuses, but let’s just cut to the chase and say that I suck. I’ve been reading Change100’s tweets from Poland as she and the PokerNews crew cover the European Poker Tour’s Warsaw stop. It doesn’t sound like she’s much enjoying the country or, especially,…

Ball Up

Friday, November 14th, 2008

Some photos from volleyball the other night. It was pretty dark in the gym and the color of the light was a bit funky. Miss playing in a league. And the team photo. Remember, coming in second means that you’re the last to be called losers! Man, that was a really cheap shot. Not sure…

Technical Difficulties

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Had some computer issues today that were resolved (or resolved themselves) and so I couldn’t hack my way through all the volleyball pics from last night. But I did pick out my favorite one to post today: Rico gettin’ stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey. I really could’ve zoomed in a little more, cropped it tight…let’s…

Good, Wholesome Fun

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

So my friends wanted me to take pictures of their volleyball playoff game and I said sure. So I drive to Cranberry at 7pm and take some shots and, to my amazement, they win the match. I figure we’re off to the bar for drinks when they say, “No, we play again at 9 for…

Hi-Tech

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Thought I miss out on posting today, but thanks to the glory of the iPhone, I persevere. My friends played for a volleyball title tonight and I went to take pics, which I will post tomorrow. But now we’re at the bar, and let’s see if I can post a photo… No, I can’t. Uploaded…

Veterans Day

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Went to a breakfast fundraiser this morning for the Friends of Danang, the group I went to Vietnam with. I planned to take some pictures of the parade that was due to start soon after the breakfast was over, but after waiting around a bit I decided to head home. It was cold and blustery….

From a Distance

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Like many of you I’m watching the final table of the Main Event and I’ll keep a running post of my thoughts and, yes, feelings. I think it’s important to talk about our feelings. My feelings, anyway. I didn’t see the final table preview show until tonight, and it was very well done. Don’t think…

No Lie

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

I’ve already semi-broken my promise to post a new photo every day during November (one pic I posted was a shot I took during the WSOP that I never uploaded) and here goes Monday without me posting a photo. Au contraire! I took some shots tonight after volleyball and uploaded them to Flickr and to…
