My favorite bedtime snack

Here's my current favorite bedtime snack. It's a big plate of
whatever fresh berries I can find (rasberries and blackberries, today)
and 1/2 of a miraculin tablet. The tablet is made from a rare berry
found only in West Africa.

Check out the wikipedia entry:
- Interesting stuff. You can snag your own stash at
It makes a Guinness draught taste amazing.

Mojo, crashed on the couch

If only I could lay around doing nothing and get more and more buff
every day.

Mojo snuggling with his ball

Here's Mojo snuggling with his favorite ball. He's really started to
fill out, lately. I didn't really notice it until someone jokingly
asked me if he was on steroids. After taking a really good look, my
boy's growing up.

A foggy foggy morning

I thought I'd post the fog I saw this morning. It was so thick, I
could barely see. I ended up crawling through at about 5mph. I've
taken some pretty good pictures lately & I'll start posting them.

There's been a lot going on.

I finally got up the courage (and the money) to order myself a
#makerbot ( It's called the "CupCake CNC" and
it's gonna be an awful lot of fun. It's supposed to ship on December
1st. Kinda like my Xmas present to myself.

Here's a pair of small Xenia soft corals I picked up last night. They
are the most interesting, mesmerizing thing I've seen in ages.

Here's a beautiful pit bull named Hazel. She was bred twice and had a
C section both times before the current owner rescued her.

Shopper complains about sex toys at Spencer's Gifts | News Bizarre | - Houston Chronicle

For the love of god, if you don't wanna see sex toys, don't go in. If
you don't want YOUR kids to see sex toys, don't let THEM go in.

And another thing...if you're offended by what you see in Spencer's,
dude, you need to get out more. Spencer's is like Toys-R-Us compared
to what you can see in a *real* sex store like you'd find in Georgetown.

I-Sobot controls air traffic

Well, it's more like my I-Sobot is sitting on an air traffic control
console while I was on a break from doing simulations & testing.
Makes a cool picture, though.

The first snake of the season

Here's the garter snake my daughter caught this weekend. She loves
catching snakes, just like me. Fun times.

Wooden carving of a shark

I can't recall what kind of wood this is made of, but, it's nice. It was hand carved by a guy in Belize.

I watched him carve it and he made little adjustments all along the way so it came out just how I wanted it. And, it only cost me about $20.

It's a cold, cold world

Here's a cool pic. It was the middle of a frigid night and my
fireplace had gone out. I went outside to grab some sticks from the
yard for kindling. When I looked back, I saw this cool impression in
the frost. Cool...heh...I mean, interesting. No kidding that it was
cool. My feet were screaming that at me !!!
