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.

 jim  Seattle Center (on a snowy day)
 It was nice to have it all to ourselves (kind of). We came to see the Music and Science Museum, but they close at 5pm.
  We settled for the laser light show,
which went to the music of Queen. We also saw a U2 concert in 3D. It was great. Surprisingly, it all cost less seeing a box office movie

 jim  China Town
Chinatown in Seattle is much smaller than the one in San Francisco, but its small selection of shops and restaurants are very charming.

I love these little Chinatown shops.
I tried some of their Korean ginsing by  placing a slice in my mouth and letting it dissolve for about 15 minutes. It really seemed to make me feel good.
I bought a baggy of it!

The girl below was VERY nice. We sat down at a tiny table and shared a pot green tea with her. The ambience was very warm and friendly.

No, but they gave us a "gottago" serving of tea at closing.

 jim  The Skylark Cafe
The Skylark Cafe is supposed to be a sought out dance bar / supper club...
It was okay, but I kind of expected more. It was small, but I'd think it could be a lot of fun after 9pm. We left there at 8pm. Their Monte Cristo is the best I've had since the 70's (at the old Mgm).  The turkey, ham and swiss sandwich was fried in egg batter, and was done very nicely. Becky had a Reuben which was made with marbled rye. The food was textbook perfect.
We stopped by the Show Box.
Young girls were standing in the parking lot, dressed up to the hilt. I thought My truck just went "WHOA, what's this?". We swing in, and check it out. The owners had converted an old brick walled warehouse into a show room / bar. It was big inside, but I thought it lacked the charm of a renovated warehouse. I thought it tried to look too modern, with its black and gold theme. They were having a fashion show inside at a the cost of $25 a ticket. There was a runway for the models, with those metal fold up chairs you see at high schools lining up along the side of it. Somehow, I just wasn't impressed.

 jim  One war, so many people.
All these graves were added by date of passing. One of these soldiers died the day I was born. The man lived to be 30.
