|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.

Thunder Over Louisville kicks off the Kentucky Derby on 4/18/2009. It is one of the top 10 events to see in the US.
Over 500,000 thrill seeking people are expected to show up for the event.
This calendared Stories is here to remind me to plan on going to the events.
Rod's family is coming, and I'm pretty sure everyone sets up on a camping area near the river.

SNOW, those beautiful gentle flakes falling from the sky, covering the ground, making everything glisten white when the sun comes out. I lilke it too. Most of the people here say they can't wait for the spring, but for me, its just another beautiful day.
Hopefully, it won't be snowing on the 18th.
I'm not sure if I'll want to camp in downtown Louisville when its 40 outside. We'll see what the weather brings.

I'd say the odds are very good Larry.
We ate at Atria's last night (sorry we missed you). The plan came too late in the day.

As I was working with a fellow Support person (in training) today, a problem came up. We used my new Support Menu to check it out, which resolved the problem quick.
That was cool.
Also, his boss borrowed my electric cigarette to show other people.
He's all enthused. I told him, hey, you have an S-Corp in PA, I have one in NV, I also have the paper work, Lets market this thing!!!
I know I've when I've seen something good, and my electric cigarette is one of my latest gadgets.
Its pretty much unknown to the US, and there is no marketting for it yet. So, we could be on the ground floor.
On the other hand, I really like the way things are now. I wonder what I'd be if I had a lot of money.
We could get rich off of this thing...we're both go-getters as the term used to go. But...
Someone has to turn on the ignition and take the wheel.

03/25/2009 19:13:37jim We hooked up with a Singles Group..
Now its not like you think!!!
These are professionals like myself, who are temporarily displaced here in Pittsburgh, and they all are both attractive, and nice or either or neither :^).
We went to an Irish Pub in Cranberry, where they had happy hour AND appetizers for $6 between 5pm and 7pm.
We got 6 stuffed mushrooms that were as big as my foot, and burgers as big as my head!!!
We had a lot of fun.
In other news, we just saw Las Vegas on national news
They were talking about people torching their cars for the insurance, however, I'd swear I've got pictures of the car and truck they were hauling off of Lake Mead Blvd near the lake. I took them over a year ago. I thought it was so interesting, I walked from the road down through a gulch to get to them...
Makes me want to say hmmmmmm about what we see on the news.
03/24/2009 19:10:59jim Pittsburgh MullaneyPub-20090324
Mullaney's is an Irish Pub
We've got a good group at my job site. Becky and I got together with two of my coworkers, to see/learn Ceilee dancing (bad spelling). We had fun, and the dancing lessons were interesting. My ears are still ringing from fiddlers tunes though.
I think it might have been happy hour for senior citizens when we got there. It sure made me feel younger! Oh Yea!!!
03/22/2009 21:11:01jim A good weekend - Its SPRING!
We went to Erie, Pa. Watched the sunset over Lake Erie. Hung out and at a local pub off of the lake. Drove around downtown.
We talked to Sonny almost the whole hour and a half back to Wexford on the Truck Phone. That was great.
Coming back through Cranberry, Pa, it was all lit up, and a lot more exciting than anything I'd seen in Erie.
I thought that was strange, that a small town like Cranberry could be so much more exciting than a city off of the Great Lakes.
Anyway, the rest of the weekend was about chatting, writing code and playing Wii. What a life. This weekend seemed to last a month.
Renee set up a three-way conversation with us and GMa. We enjoyed that a lot.
To cap off the weekend, we ate at the Outback, where we got a couple of steaks and a weeks worth of leftovers.
Just another weekend, but, we enjoyed every day.

After I got off work on Friday,
Becky and I decided to see Lake Erie. It's about 100 miles north from here. My step mother (Lottie Cutlar) passed away there last week, while we were in Vegas. It's amazing how much can be seen within a few hours of driving.
BTW-My Grandfather burned this into me. Every Sunday, we'd go to some park, or forest near Paducah, Ky.
Thanks Grandfather !

03/18/2009 06:42:14jim Meanwhile: Back in Pittsburgh
I got up at 6 yesterday morning, drove to work and it was dark and foggy. I LIKED IT!
I had the same old problems to solve, sitting on my desk, and I LIKED IT!
I came home to my beautiful Becky, and saw some red breasted robins searching the new grass for worms. And guess what...I LIKED IT!
Some think I am crazy for wanting seasonal weather, but I don't.
As the weather changes, its like another year is being reborn, just to dye again. Snow, fog, rain, sunshine, those days when the sun just barely peeks through the clouds,
to me, they are beautiful. I can't wait to hear our first thunderstorm.
Oh, I told a white lie.
I actually picked Becky up at the store.
She grabbed her back pack, took the trail down to the creek's bridge, crossed McKnight Road, and went shopping at Giant Eagle (or as I like to call it, the Big Bird).
Yesterday was a nice day for taking a hike through the woods.
