    I’m pretty stoked that I finally have a workout routine formulating. When I first got to Balad, it was excruciating trying to find how to fit anything in my day besides work. The work day is 12 hours. So, factoring in time for things like say f...

    In a blog chocked full of different flavors, this post is just a plain vanilla update from the front. As strange as it sounds, it actually is turning cold here. It never got higher than the mid 60′s yesterday and dropped down in the 40′s...
  • No Place Like Home
    on Dec 12, 2010 in Uncategorized
    Ah, there’s no place like home. Only these days, I have to stop and think which home is actually home. And the equation just shifted again today. The room I was issued when I got to Balad, Iraq was all decked out. I was so impressed when I foun...
  • The War on Cavaties
    on Dec 10, 2010 in Uncategorized

    I hate to disappoint everyone that I don’t have a witty, albeit droll, blog post today. But, I did think of you. Honest. No, really. I thought you may be interested in a few links that give you a glimpse of what’s out here: Operation New...

    For generations, people have plumbed the depths of their souls for the answers to the deepest questions of the universe: - Where did we come from? - Why are we here? - When the sugar plums danced in my head, did they get brain on their shoes?  ...
  • The Incredible Mr. Hand
    on Dec 6, 2010 in Uncategorized
    I knew I couldn’t put it off forever. It was really inevitable. At some point, I simply had to get a photo in front of some good old fashioned American hardware. That was actually made in America. The problem up to this point has been: A) I did...
  • Not of This World
    on Dec 4, 2010 in Uncategorized
    My brother, John, is a bona fide Homeland Border Patrol agent. Which it turns out to be a fortunate coincidence that I am not even remotely near the “home” part of our Homeland. Not even the home part of Der Fatherland. No one can tell me...
  • Wild. Life.
    on Dec 2, 2010 in Uncategorized
    I have largely been disappointed at the appalling lack of exotic wildlife in Balad, Iraq. For one thing, I’ve yet to meet anyone named “Bill” or “Ted”. Let alone any excellent adventure associated therewith. And there ha...

    Centuries ago, the young and molten earth cooled and hardened. Into Alabama. The other states formed well after that (during the Clinton administration). Around that time, my co-worker (and good friend) Jan, at the happy-go-lucky mining society, rece...
