My Endorsements for the upcoming Washington election

2012-07-22 BlogBlog RSSRSS

Let me start by saying that I am totally in favor of election reform.  I firmly believe that a proportional representation system for our legislatures, be they state or Federal, would greatly improve our democracy.  Proportional representation is quite simple: Let’s say you’re electing a 100 member legislature, divided between 10 districts, each with 10 [...]

Tour d’Joko: Embracing Capitolism

2012-03-05 BlogBlog RSSRSS

I enjoy visiting museums, historical sites and significant buildings.  It’s odd that in 4 years living in Seattle, I have not, until today, taken in our state capitol, a mere 80 miles or so south in the city of Olympia. In a word, it was “quaint”. Part Two of my adventure today was far more [...]

It’s December.  I can’t help but think ahead.  In two weeks, I’ll have my drivers license back, insurance and a dependable vehicle in which to travel.  See, before my life changed 20 months ago, road trips, making videos and exploring the world were my favorite things to do. Few if any of you reading this [...]

About a week ago, I reported here that I was not going to die… of starvation.  Well, on that same day I got some other news about why I am not going to die…of a heart attack.  See, when I went to the street fair last weekend, I stepped up to the Walgreen’s Mobile Health [...]

Sausage: Making the Good Out of Who Knows What

2011-04-28 BlogBlog RSSRSS

Sausage. Who amongst the omnivores here doesn’t love sausage? Going back to it’s origins, sausage is the respectable older sibling of the hot dog: let’s take cuts of meat that would otherwise be unpalatable to the western tongue, grind them up with a few regular cuts and stuff the results into something that is 0usable and easily cooked, I.e., intestine casings.

What Have I Done? Gone to Hell?

2011-01-27 BlogBlog RSSRSS

I discussed in a recent blog the remarkable sequence of synchronicities that lead me to renting my latest apartment. I’m a believer in determinism (with a theistic bent), and am constantly looking for signs which indicate that I am, indeed, on the life path that I am intended to be on.  As one who believes [...]

Turning My Life Around… again. This time, it’s geographic. A Moving Story.

2011-01-08 BlogBlog RSSRSS

I stared at the notice in disbelief. Eviction. All residents at our unit must vacate these premises by January 31st. Huh? What is this? It had to be some sort of mistake. I just got here! It’s been only three months. There haven’t been any complaints. We’ve paid our rent on time. What the heck [...]
