Going offline for awhile...and considering a shutdown.

Dear friends, family and all you other folk who aren't sure which category you fall in...I'm tired.  I’ve spent countless hours of my life keeping various profiles, pages and postings up to date…read or checked…and I’m tired.  Yes, I realize that my line of work used to pretty much predicate to being connected all the time, but…I’m not that type of administrator anymore.  It is with that thought that I make this statement:  I’m going to unplug for awhile.  Don’t think that I’ve completely abandoned you all…I’ll still answer texts and I’m going to check my email at the end of the day when things wind down…and if all else fails…you might actually try calling me if you need something!  I’ll still be alive…just not here, or on any of my online accounts for that matter, for awhile…in face, I’m probably going to shut down most of them since I rarely use them.  At this point in my rough draft, I had this big long explanation about why I was taking a break and then I realized that it was self defeating.  If you all want to know the reason, you’ll have to get it from me…socially.
I’m going to leave this up until Monday night…at that point, I will check it one last time and then suspend my account UFN…at least a week or so

Is anybody out there?

I's been forever...but things could start happening here...

Alot has happened since my last post...graduation...Cub Scouts...and...uh...oh yeah...AND ENDLESS STRING OF PROFESSIONAL REJECTIONS!!! I'm not bitter though. I realize that it come with the territory...and by that I mean the area in which I live. If this part of the state were any more would be a third world country. Only one time in my life have I been told that I was "over qualified" for a job and now it has become a constant in my daily existence. The fact that there are so many experienced technicians looking for work has put me into the low end of the hiring spectrum. So here I sit. Too qualified for McDonald's and not experienced enough for Bristol Meyer.

I may cry.

Better than a hard day's work...

For those of you not familiar with the midwest....this is what is known as a "decent" catch. 50 pounds, 44 inches.

Find your way into the world young man...

And so another school season begins. I send Seth off to make his way...watching as he bounces down the stairs and to the bus. You pin all your hopes and dreams to their first day back, only to wish that the summer would have never ended.

Fear Mongers Strike Again...

After two days of fighting, the world finally takes notice of the state of war between Russia and the Georgian Republic...or rather one part of the world takes notice.

The price of oil jumped $2 today on "news" of the "conflict" in that area. Forget the fact that that area produces a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of the region. Speculators cite that there are "major oil transport routes" in that region. Buy a globe people.

This just goes to show that a dumb excuse is not always better than none.
