    I'm always a bit nervous about things I loved coming back after long hiatuses. I can't think of too many that lived up to their original runs.

    I actually just applied to a job at Whitman a few days ago. It's not the absolute best fit, but I talked to them this summer and they gave me enough encouragement to send in an app. We'll see if by...

    Don't know exactly. But he's got a shaved head, bit goatee, tattoo covered arms and as far as I can tell is one of the organizers of motorcycle events. So very much engaged with the biker lifestyle...

    I've traveled in a number of places with pretty high travel advisories without too much worry. Kashmir was definitely on the "Do Not Travel" list while I was last there. Now that I have a kid, I'd...

    I'm really hoping this works out. I loved Saddleback on my lone visit and would love to go back. My brother just started a job at U of Maine, so I have more reason to be in the state in any case.

    This seems to be a trend. Trade shows seem to be falling out of favor as companies find new and less pricey ways to release their new products.

    A lot of sled dog breeds (huskies in particular) aren't always the best trail dogs as they are super independent and so recall can be an issue.

    I think it's cool. I've often wondered by cold-weather cities don't build jib park style ski hills closer to town. It's not as if they need huge amounts of vertical.
