Growing up, we listened to the radio in Alexandria, Minnesota. For the most part it was pop music–Kaaaay-Ceeee-El-Deeeee was the station. The local radio was a barometer of what music caught people’s attention at that point in time. My sisters were often dictating what was listened to then and as such it was a reflection [...]

Life today is mostly focused on parenting and work.
And it’s a lot of fun, despite that sounding relatively mundane.
The truth is, as you get older, things slow down and get a little more predictable.
They need to.
So here’s a brief update: new day care for Juni all is well there. Work is very busy at this [...]
I’ve fallen a bit from the grind in terms of getting thoughts down. Work has been keeping me busy, and outside of that other pursuits a bit more interesting. Here’s what I’ve been spending time on as of late:
Lots of reading on securities. I’m still in the mode of paying of school [...]
It still amazes me how quickly life has been going this last few years. During school, everything seemed a lot slower than now. Though at the time, it may have seemed very fast moving. Now, it’s hit warp speed. My role keeps me so occupied while at work, it’s difficult to [...]
Way back when, when I was on Facebook, I had a good amount of “friends” on the service, maybe 350-500. I can’t recall the exact number, but it was a lot of people from High School, Undergraduate, Graduate, my various occupational peers and a few randoms as well.

My youthful pursuits included wakeboarding and tubing, basketball, videogames, ladies, kicking it with friends, frisbee golf [...]
This year is rounding out, so I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on 2011. I’m going to be traveling up to Cloquet and then Alexandria, MN for most of the next week so won’t have much access to the internet the blog, though I should be back before New Years and can [...]
Stealing this video from a good post @ The Sunshine Spirit. I’m continuing my search for people who write about, well, a lot of things, but do it in a fun and interesting way. Especially those people around the Minneapolis/St. Paul areas.
Truth of the matter is that this topic hits home pretty hard. I don’t [...]

The title of this is NOT a shot at working a lot or some sort of complaint about how work/life balance is needed etc. This has been an incredibly busy week with 11 hour days, running and reading “Guns, Germs and Steel” in off time, so I’d be right in my element to start whining, [...]
