Got up early. The day is off to a good start.
Heading to a Dr appointment and paying for the appointment with spreadsheet and Dragon Cookie money.

Thankful for the network of freelancers and entrepreneurs who've helped me see that this life is possible with the right commitment and willingness to do what it takes.

Marriage is going great, new baby is happy and healthy, we're closing on our house at the end of the month, and my band has a new cd. What isn't going right today?

Send money.


I came home yesterday to a clean apartment, a cookie tray, and my favorite white chocolate macadamia nut cookie recipe from FWB.

Went running this morning, did a little lifting, and now feel great to enjoy my last day of vaca!

Got to figure out some investment moves, which will be fun. Groceries and other errands, not so much, but don't care. It's sunny and today is good.

Go!

That's the spot (although there weren't any railings/steps I saw), I just ran around it with a 10 foot radius or so.

The thing is, my brother thought he'd seen the spot marked a couple hundred feet away when he was there over two decades ago. Thought he'd heard a rumor that too many people complained about the old spot in relation to their GPS phones, so the authorities may have moved it.

I suppose that to be sure / precise, I should have run around it at a quarter km radius.

Vaca in Mesa Verde and vicinity with most of my nuclear family and their two significant others.

Meaning, helping my mom and her second husband (both in their 70s) get up and down steps in trails.

Gorgeous part of the country, but hell on my sinuses.

Proposed doing a free 90-minute Excel training session for the members in my networking group. I passed out a survey form and it uncovered a major need. This will be fun.

Bought a 1/2 gallon of my favorite chocolate milk.

I ran my errands, and now I feel like getting a nice beer buzz on.


Although this probably isn't a good time to think over the next step in investing, I'm doing it anyway.

Please, a boss would pay someone else to do it, like I just did.


And the dealership had a 1967 marina blue convertible vette in the showroom, in really great condition. Someone traded it in to this dealership on a Tahoe! There isn't a strong enough for that.

While embarrassing, they might have needed to fit in a family or go off asphalt?

...or needed to fit more than one seester?



P.S. didja buy it??

Probably worth roughly the same (60K), they may have even have got some money with that trade.

It probably wouldn't have worked out that much more expensive to pay someone else to do it, but then I'd be worried that someone else might have skimped a bit on the oil - the stuff I used was like £50 for 5 litres.

Alternating between Negra Modelo and Widmer Bros. Hefeweizen, both of which are solid go-to's.

Go!

I'm more thinking they would get nowhere near what it's worth as a dealer trade in, the dealer scored a huge win there.




...and no. I did look it over really close, and though it is very cool and is in great shape, the overwhelming thought I kept coming back to is how flat out crude cars of the 60's and 70's really are. The advancement in design and build quality of the past couple decades are light years ahead of the old stuff. It's just super apparent when you see them together, and how in every way the newer cars are just so much better. Still, I sure didn't expect to see that thing in there!

Just had my first performance review in my 3 years here.

They're recommending my position for reclassification. Which, as far as I can tell, is as much a promotion as is possible in civil service, without competing for it.

And they're recommending me for management/supervisory training. Not bad for an entry-level job.

Nah, look at one of those directly next to a brand new Z06, and it becomes crystal clear all you'd be paying for is nostalgia 'cool.' I'd rather get something real for my money.

Definitely agree. Stuff from the 60s and 70s could go straight, really fast, but if something got in their way, they couldn't turn.

Now you have Z-rated tires good until 149MPH, 4 wheel disc brakes with traction assist (disable for smoke shows please), fuel efficient CPU tuned engines with fewer moving parts (no points, or timing to deal with, CPU deals with all required timing advance/retard), better suspension, aerodynamics, road noise suppression, and that doesn't even include the kicking bluetooth-enabled stereo in the cockpit! DELCO AM radio can kiss my ass! LOL

Saw Daughtry in SF last night, cool stuff and my 13 year old daughter got asked to play on the 16's in a tournament this weekend. A nice, end of season reward for a lot of work that she's put in.
