New Years Resolutions for 2017

The “winter break” where I often take off the days between Christmas and New Years flew by this year. So I’m actually writing my top music and resolutions post about a week late. Part of this is due to catching a nasty cold while we were in Hayward, Wisconsin. Despite that, it [...]

1,001 Posts – Happy New Year’s!

Teresa, Juniper and I are headed Northeast to a cabin with some close friends for New Years.  It should be a lot of fun and a nice break away; I doubt I’ll blog at all while there.
Redmarketer just hit 1,000 posts!  It only took eight years to do it.  :-)
I hope to continue to write [...]

Void the Default Setting

Teresa, Juniper and I just spent twelve days in Stockholm, Sweden and multiple cities in Iceland (though mostly Reykjavik).  I’ll post again with some pictures from the trip soon.  But today I want to point out something that has been rattling around my brain since about half way through the trip.
Vacation is a really interesting [...]

Bye Bye Belize, Hello Minnesnowda

This has been an atypical vacation in terms of writing. Many things happened that were noteworthy, but it didn’t all get put on paper. We spent NYE at a very fun bar in Hopkins, a local joint where most of the proprietors from other bars and restaurants come to celebrate.  The DJ at first was [...]

To Kill A Mockingbird

Harper Lee wrote a fantastic book back in 1960. Apparently she still makes $9000 per day from it today.I’ve read it before, when I was in junior high school, but had since forgotten most of the plot.  The fact that it was in the deep south and was about an older time was about all [...]

Happy New Years from Belize!

It is well past time for me to write a little about our trip.  We are currently on day five, in a very nice town called Hopkins.  There are roughly 1,000 people living here and most everyone seems very happy and friendly.
Belize is a cultural melting pot unlike any I’ve seen.  There are many cultures [...]

Off to Belize

Well, it snuck up on us.  We just had Christmas here in Bloomington.  My brother in law Nathan is staying with us here in Bloomington through the rest of the month, and has been the last three, so we all stayed in and enjoyed some holiday spirit.
But tonight we are leaving for vacation, down to [...]

Winter Vacation Decided: Going to Belize

It took us quite a bit of time to decide, but we’ll be headed down to Belize in December for about ten days.
We had discussed at great length going to Peru, but ultimately decided against it due to prices of flights going up, the timeliness of travel (getting there in the middle of the night [...]

Time to Get Back to Conversational

I haven’t written a lot lately, and part of that is due to the idea of writing more in depth and “professional” posts.  Of course, that’s antithetical in nature to why this site was built and what it’s supposed to be for.  This is not a professional site and it’s not supposed to be, so [...]

“Life is the most beautiful give you’ll ever get.” – Day 14

Today is our last full day of the trip.  It started by getting up at 6am and doing some quick breakfast before hopping on a bus to take a river cruise.  It’s about 45 minutes away from our hotel, and we were excited to try one last time to see some wildlife. 
It didn’t disappoint. [...]
