Election 2016

At this point it’s more probable that Donald Trump is either going to win the national election, or the tie will go to the House of Representatives to pick the winner, which most likely would be a Trump win as well.

The House and Senate both appear to be a safe keep for the Republican Party also tonight.

Galveston

I was always told that Corpus Christi, Texas was much nicer and cleaner than Galveston. That proved to be false. It wasn’t bad, but Galveston felt about the same and with a better ocean view.

When you’re here

There’s a photo I took of my son as a young kid, red sweater, red backdrop, laughing, framed on my living room console table. Last week I noticed a small sliver of yellow paper sticking out of where you put the photo in, so I opened it. Behind the photo was $50 and a post-it note from my mom that simply read “I love you son”.

To the Skies

I bought a 4k Video drone a few weeks ago and have been trying to get the hang of flying it. Today we took it to the lake and let it take off over the water.

Finally meeting the Co-workers

The new job is asking me to make quarterly trips to Washington DC, and New York City. I have no objection as I love coming back to NYC and seeing friends, even more so with the vibe to be working here again. I finally got the meet the people I work with and talk to on phone and online meetings almost daily. I think this job is going to go well.

The New Guy

Officially started my position with ISS today. On the south side of OU campus, the office is adjacent to the National Weather Service.
Really nice people so far, but it’s different since no one here is on my team or even in my group. I’ll probably just be coming down to Norman a few times a week unless something changes.

The Television Box

Yes, I am sure I am missing something you love here, but this is the list of shows that I would say give legitimacy to the art form of television serials. The writing, the production, the acting, the concept; something made you see the world differently or captivated you to keep watching.

Something New

About six months ago, I got a phone call from a woman in NYC who once hired me for a contracting gig back in 2008. The job back then was supposed to last only a month but it turned into three months work and it couldn’t have come at a better time because in 2008, it wasn’t a good time to living in the most expensive city in the country and going through a world-wide economic collapse.

Skiing in Colorado

Nathan and I drove to Colorado to meet some friends and ski just west of Denver, CO. His first time to ski, I was truly impressed. Never had any trouble getting off the ski lift. Took a bit of a wipeout on a blue run, but he did a blue run on his first day ever to ski.
