So I spent half of this morning either counting hours for the landscaping crew and inputing
them into the payroll system or I was
I'm Retired inputing data for the housing tree survey on base. What’s that you say? Where did all that come from? Well as the title of this
article alludes I have 3 days until the end of my military career. Let me try and catch you all up since the last time I posted anything here.

Pic A Day (30 Day Project) – Day 2

December 9, 2010 Leave a comment

ALRIGHT!  I am sorry… I missed the other day and I didn’t post yesterday. I did, however, take a shot that I thought was worthy of a Pic A Day. That leads me into my thought for the day (the one that goes with this pic).

Patience: it will take you a far bit of the way to any goal you have. Just wait for that extra few seconds it would take for you to shove someone out of the way or to rush past someone just to get some meaningless thing. Patience usually shows that you are willing to work with someone and that someone will be more willing to work with you.

Pic Background: The animals share a water dish and my wife just filled the dish… The cat was the first to get there and… well, the dog had to wait her turn. I love how they are supposed to be mortal enemies but they live so harmoniously.

Well, that will finish me off for the night… Hope you all enjoyed your Cup O’ Joe and enjoyed your stay at the Coffee Shtop.

Pic A Day (30 Day Project) – Day 1

December 7, 2010 Leave a comment

As I said in my last post, I wanted to start a new project. The idea behind this project is to get my creative juices flowing and also to revitalize this blog. This starts today with Day 1 of my Pic A Day (30 Day Project).

The background behind the image:
       My wife and I were driving down I-190 and I looked off to the left and saw smoke rising from the ranges in the northern reservation. I thought to myself, “That would make a nice picture.”  Now I grabbed my phone and was going to snap the shot when something told me to not take that shot. I looked down and my wife had grabbed my hand on the shifter in the car. I decieded to take that pic. Here it is.Hands In Love I did some editing of it as you can tell. I took out the background and added in my own.

Been talking to a coworker tonight, (working night shift for the next three days) and he told me about a “Picture A Day” where you (me) take a picture of some random thing and either write about that photo or what was going on at that time or something that you (me again) are thankful for.

A New Day

November 11, 2010 Leave a comment

OK. The office had a great week last week. We had a massively important inspection on our procedures and came out with a 100% score. The inspectors said that they had to nit-pick to try and trip us up. I wish I could take credit for helping with the outstanding results but as I am still in training, Read more…

Bak from the Ded

Hey everyone… It has been a long time since I have written anything in here and I have a good excuse. I have been busy. What have I been doing? Well, I am currently in Ft. Hood, TX. Since my last post I went to Montgomery, AL for a Managerial course, and moved half way across the states. My family and I are adjusting. Slowly. Kids are making friends in school. I have been in training for the last month to learn local forecasting trends and rules of thumb.

What the hell kinda blog is this?

April 26, 2010 Leave a comment

OK. So I am not the best at writing a blog and keeping it up to date on a daily basis. But I have an excuse… um… I was working mids the last three days, and um… my superpoke pet ate my last draft and um… yeah that is it. *grin* Anyway, I am sitting here thinking of what to write about and waiting for This Week In Linux (TWIL) to open the UStream gate. Oh, I didn’t tell you all. Yeah TWIL is a youtuber that I just started watching because he seems pretty schmart on linux schtuff. He introduced me a new app for webcam recording called GUVCView.

See what I mean. That first paragraph was written yesterday around 8:30PM. I ended up getting company over and we discussed his new adventure. I was able to help him transition over to Ubuntu Linux on his laptop. It wasn’t a hard sale since he was using Vista which was screwing up as the days grew on. He was using an outdated version of Firefox since no version besides 3.1.19 would work. They would install but would not function. He is happily surfing the net with version 3.5 now. 😀 So anyway, that is my excuse for not finishing lastnight. I didn’t even get to listen in on the TWIL live broadcast. It would have been nice since I even made an account on UStream. Oh well.

So now I sit here drinking my coffee (did you think I would be doing anything else on a Monday at 6:40AM?) wondering what to do today. I think today my wife and I will clean the oldest kids room. We need to purge all the trash he has collected over the last 10 years. An believe me, it is a lot of trash. We cleaned the younger two’s room last week and it was like climbing Mt. Everest compared to the oldest one’s so today won’t be sooooo bad.

Well that is all for now. I may show up later on and give some updates if they occur. Have a good one and I hope you enjoyed your Cup of Joe from…  The Coffee Shtop.
