  1. Reflection: Paint and Pixels

    by , 09-24-2013 at 12:00 PM (It's A Quest...)
    The Boy has finally discovered Disney movies. He has loved Cars, Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo for a few years now, but those donít count. They are Pixar movies. (not that thereís anything wrong with that) About three months ago Cinderella was on the Disney Channel. To my surprise, he loved it. Then he saw Tangled and thought it was great! Most recently, and much to his fatherís relief, Peter Pan is the movie of repetitive addiction. In the tub the other night I overheard him singing his slightly ...

  4. Notice - This is not an excuse

    by , 08-26-2013 at 12:47 PM (It's A Quest...)
    Excuses are what people give you when they don't want to take responsibility for their own actions. Explainations are what people give you when they want you to know why they let you down.

    My company just took on extra work, which means I have been assigned extra work. This is a good thing for my company and for me. It does, however, mean I cannot promise weekly updates promptly appearing each Monday afternoon.

    My apologies.

    T-1,016 days and counting, ...
