|The Life and Times of Jim|
|Hi, there. I'm Jim. Welcome to my phlog!|
This site was written for Las Vegas, then LouisVille. Now, it seems to be about anywhere. In these phlogs, you'll see a lot of my personal notes and pictures. I like to post my observations here to remember life and celebrate it. I'm not religious. I don't pray for good fortune. I'm ecstatically grateful for the gift of life and I think our time should be remembered and not taken for granted. I'm not a writer. I think pictures tell stories so much better than words. I love just about everything in this life, and, I guess that would have to include you. So, if you've seen me, don't be surprised if your picture is in here somewhere. Of all the critters, people are absolutely the most interesting.

AFTER 3 HOURS of CONTORTING my hands, I finally replaced both of my bad power lock actuators.
These are the doohinkees that cause your doors to unlock by the remote.
Ya gotta tear the doors apart to get to them.
So much fun!

Very good movie, with a some what grim path. Cave divers lose their exit in the largest (unexplored) cave in the world.

Fiesta Day has grown and changed since it originated in the 40's. This year it is planned for Feb. 13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with plenty of action taking place from Seventh Avenue to Centennial Park. Entertainment and food, a parade, art shows, and cooking contest make Fiesta Day one of areas most widely attended events attended by both residents and tourists.

Dawn has moved on to Fifth Third Bank. I organized a get together at Courtside, and I say organized loosely!
I sent off an email saying Friday was Pennys last day. Greg, John, Joe, Dawn, Penny, and myself showed up.

Tossed in the Thai Tea for good measure, and it was all delicious.

02/01/2011 07:13:30jim The F150 was Burgled
They got my Canon camera, the new lense and a new camera bag. Its a fluke, me leaving it in the truck (out-of-sight).
Guess they liked my cheap GPS unit. They didn't take the power cord. My truck sits high, and this is an upscale area, so its amazing they picked on my truck.
On the Plus Side
I didn't like the Canon. The camera with its long lense was bulky and stuck out. It was next to impossible to get a candid shot of people.
Someone would always be snearing at the camera in pictures of crowd, and forget about taking shots on a beach.
Serials: Canon EOS Rebel T1i. EOS 500D. $840.
01/28/2011 07:10:57jim Loggins/Cross - 02/1/2011
Tuesday, 8 p.m. Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. $45-$85. (727) 791-7400.
Dismiss this declaration as hyperbole if you must, but Tuesday night's Kenny Loggins/Christopher Cross concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall could be the musical highlight of 2011 in Tampa Bay. Snicker if you want, but "yacht rock" isn't a farce; it's a soothing, mental balm that wraps around you like a warm blanket. Look for a night of non-stop hits from their '70s and '80s catalogs. Cross will open with a slew of heart-mending ballads including Think of Laura, Sailing and Best That You Can Do followed by the prickly Ride Like the Wind. Loggins will crank things up further with Footloose, Danger Zone and This Is It. And just when you think your soul can fly no higher, Kenny will come crashing down, leaving you sobbing and vulnerable with the wrenching Return to Pooh Corner. — Steve Spears

John, Anthony, Keith, Becky and I ate at Wings. I think maybe their sweet tea was expired.
The weather in Tampa Bay was crazy yesterday. High winds, torrential rains, flooding.
Driving down the road, it was hard to see 10 feet ahead.
