 jim  The life of a consultant...
You work. You make good money.
Your contract ends. You wait.
You wonder if you'll ever work again.
It takes a level of faith to do what I do.
What happens if the phone doesn't ring, or if I don't get that email for my next contract?
This is the second time I've ventured out-of-state for a contract.
I don't know where I'll be working next.
I don't how much I'll be making.
Being in between is awkward.
I could never do this if I was alone.
But there are benefits.
You get plenty of time off.
You get to see new places.
You get to make new friends.
The sad thing is, you are in a world all of your own.
Few people understand what its like, not being attached to a job.

 jim  Jesse came by...burned his hand really bad!
We offered him vinegar ice water and beer.
It was a small offering. He drank it all.
It was nice that he came to us.
I was amazed.
We haven't told many people where we live. We go out a lot.
Jesse is a popular guy. He's got an excellent personality.
Anyway, he hung out and watched a movie with us, while soaking his hand in beer.
And then he mozied off to his 7th floor apartment.

 jim  Talked to Tony N
He's doing well. He's programming in C#, and doing web programming.
They only worry about IE and FireFox, which is a relief.
All I test for on this website IE, Firefox, and now, Safari. Netscape is just too rough to code for.
Anyway, Tony's found the Lord, and quit drinking, which is cool.
I believe whatever leads you to doing the right thing in life, is the right thing to follow.
So, he's doing GREAT! He sounds GREAT! He is GREAT!
And I am glad I called my old friend.

 jim  You just get used to some things
My site goes up and down.
Insight (the internet) goes up and down.
AT&T goes up and down.
And I took a shower with no hot water again.
My IPhone shows me 5 bars even when it isn't even working.
I just found out my cell phone hasn't worked since Tuesday.
So, I actually did get called for an interview today. :(
I rescheduled for tommorrow at 5pm.

Howl... Time for you to donate your iPhone to Kevin Short, and buy yourself a landline. So, what's the story with it?

 jim  Gosh!!! What I love about Louisville!
The people have smiling eyes. They have great HAIR! They love to photographed, and they love to be extreme.
It's like every one here is the star of their own show.
This place really grows on you.

 jim  Its 7:30 am and it is still dark outside.
The sun is just now coming up.
I love this time of the morning.
I usually get up at 6 am to the chirping on my IPhone's alarm.
It's a quiet time.
I usually have time to write a program, play with some pictures or check out the lastest hackers to my website.
Its a great time to learn new things.
I've written a VB graphics program thats wonderful.
It allows you to:
- Select files from windows folders using wild cards (like explorer should do).
- To drop to DOS in the folder your viewing (like explorer should do).
- To rename files using wild cards (like DOS's REN does).
- Put the modification date/time of files (pictures) in the beginning of the file name.
- Thumbnails graphics in mass.
- Creates an html file that enables you to view graphics, watch movies or listen to the sound recordings in the file.
I take a lot of pictures, and file names like IMG_0001.JPG just won't do.
In two clicks and a little typing, the files can be named 20071020-100000-CherokeePark.JPG
Thats pretty cool when you have just downloaded 100's of pictures!
I know programming, but I don't know how to market with a small budget, and thats such a shame.
This is my last week at work.
It would be so nice if they'd just tell me to take off with my last weeks pay.
So far, thats never happened to me.
There's not a lot to do where I work, so this may be a very boring week.

Well, guess I gotta go take a shower.
HAGD yall.

 jim  Ate pizza at Wicks Pizza!
Wicks Pizza, with Peter and Zoe. They've got really good pizza. I'm going to miss these two when Peter goes.

Bathroom art always amazes me!
Mae West is hangs out in the bathroom?
Bardstown road's mom/pop stores.
This is a record shop remains untainted by the chain store madness that has swept the country.
These clouds caught my eye.
They're all in line as if headed somewhere
We have come so far from home.
In Vegas,
the sky is either blue, grey or brownish, and it rarely rains.
The Louisville,
the sky puts on its own show for free, if you just look at it.

This video store is at least, unique.
They rent DVDs in envelopes
they still have VHS Tapes,
And they have Caligula!

I want one of these things!
All I need is $70,000 to blow.
Vipers are cool.

 jim  Kentucky Towers Days
Great people, great times! I'm in a place thats like no other.
These aren't really good pictures,
but they capture the spirit of these people. Peter is on the left and he's like a magnet. He looks like he's shooting photons out of his head...haha.
We hang out in front a lot. 
We greet the people coming in and out.
They always have smiles.
In the middle is Susan.
Together, Peter and her have complimentary personalities. 
All three have been here for quite some time. There's a chemistry between these people. They do skits, speeches, and they talk about life.  
Preacher Scott stands here, arms all folded, but pictures decieve the perception. He's hilarious!
Peter is taking a job in Michigan, so these times mark the end of an era. The Kentucky Towers Trio is breaking up.

 jim  My second IPhone App
I showed this at work and mentioned my Iphone app.
Someone said I have too much time to be writing IPhone apps.
I think of programming as an art form.
It can be a expression of thought, like painting, poetry, music or mathematics.
Every little piece builds up to the whole.
Sure, I could spend my time writting viruses, planting flowers or watching TV, but I don't do any of those things.
I like to think I'm a very good computer programmer. I believe that this is what I was born to do.
What else am I going to do with my time? 
This calculator looks great on the IPhone.
It still has a few of bugs in it, especially on devices that are weak in Javascript.

 jim  The Transformers Movie
It was a really great movie.
I was surprised because I didn't expect much.
The special effects were pretty incredible.
The characters were likable.
And the script was humorous.
Not bad for a kiddy show!

 jim  Now I’m serious about this...Bar B Q
These guys here have a BBQ on wheels.
They have a caterers license, a venders permit, and a health permit.
I think thats about all that you need.
The BBQ grill runs around $1,000.
The trailer would be another $1,000 (maybe).
And I've gotta tell ya, my BBQ is much better.
We'd advertise to Bars. They call, and we're quick!
I can use my corporation to handle the expenses.
I think its worth a shot.
Only problem is, where can we smoke 20lbs of BBQ for 24 hours?
