Pictures from the Last Two Weeks

rarely do I get to visit the sound stage at my work. and I don't know what stage set this is because I don't ever watch the programs we make, but...

I think it's the set of the Shwotime show Inside the NFL or something.

looks pretty fancy. perhaps you recognize it.

went to this place for my father-in-law's birthday party.

gave him his presents in the parking lot, including an awesome garden gnome with a solar powered latern

had a show at Curran's that went pretty well. Earlier that evening, we got word that Sam was making an emergency trip to Jersey and was going to be at my show.

I didn't get any pictures of the show that night, but it was a long one as you can see from this pic taken shortly after we got home.

the party continued the next night at our house.

where I took some fancy pictures with my fancy phone

I really can't resist taking pictures of hot girls

especially when they do this

...

...

kreg makes an appearance, of course

then Lorie came to join the party. coincidently, all the girls were wearing white

before Sam left, I made a huge batch of sushi after she and Monika went shopping at H-Mart.

The day she left was our anniversary. Monika and I went back to Valley Green Inn for our annual dinner in Wissahickon Park.

and I finally got the Radiohead CD, The King of Limbs deluxe fancy edition with clear vinyl records.

Voice is the movement of the mind

Posted in Reflections with tags on May 26, 2011 by Verge

Having a voice is much more that being able to speak.  A voice doesn’t refer to a sound, but a mind, a viewpoint, a consciousness that views, interprets and defines and evokes.  It is the greatest gift that is wasted when it is not used.  Never let anything prevent you from using your voice, even when everything seems to prevent it.

The Ninth of May, Two Thousand and Eleven

Poe chilling on the old kick drum I turned into a flower pot

Due to certain "cutbacks," my job took all the free coffee stations out. This is the temporary station that one of my coworkers set up to replace them. tips accepted.

over the weekend was National Home Brew Day. Hung out at Iron Hill and drank...a lot. Didn't take too many pictures.

This is the eight keg system that the president of Barley Legal Homebrewers set up. Had some of his classic "thong remover." It did not cause me to take my pants off, luckily.

first trip to Pope's Gardens to grab some plants and start the veggie garden.

for the planting session we brewed some sun brewed tea.

this is the garden before, post a generous dose of compost from the last year.

the garden after picture. not really that much to see yet. stay tuned.

I guess most people take a lot of pictures of their kids doing stupid stuff and attending “fun” activities.  I take pictures of my cats doing stupid things and my garden just kinda sitting there (not even having fun).  But, we don’t have kids and I spend most of my time in my garden with my cats.  I think we both like it that way just fine right now.
