Putting it out there

I have intentionally not written a blog post in a year or so.  I am not a huge fan of the medium but there is something to be said of the longevity of it and the ability for people outside my sphere of influence to find out about me or about what I want to share about. This is especially true for SEO.

This post is going to be used to help direct people to another blog.  The Blog at SIXNUTRITION.com 
The blog at SIXnutrition.com is new and over the course of a few weeks we will build it up. In the meantime, here is the link to the vitamin blog.

There are three articles so far.

The first article is about What is Vitamin D 

The second is about What is Saw Palmetto 

The third is about What is L-Arginine

Each of these articles are about Vitamins for Men and how some ingredients are used by the body.

It may be time to let this go.

Since I post so rarely,  I am thinking that I may have to let this blog go.  I have pretty much moved to Facebook and Twitter and so who knows.

I think that I may keep it up for the two or three people a week who visit my blog- probably by accident- and who may or may not be interested in the friends and family discount coupon code at http://sixnutrition.com/.  Those are some amazing Vitamins for Men.  Just saying.

Goldilocks or whatever

If for some reason you were brought to this page by google and you were looking for the famous Filipino Bakery and Restaurant link through here- http://www.goldilocks-usa.com/ btw, if you are into Filipino food, that place rocks and I recommend you try it if you have the opportunity.

Now, the reason for the Goldilocks title is because of the the children's story. I would like to tell my version of the story called Goldilocks and how to tell that there might be bears in your neighborhood. Here it goes-Once upon a time there was a kid who took his family to Florida (not Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, or the zoo) to live.

When they settled into their house the found a lot of wildlife in the area such as a billion squirrels, possums, armadillos, raccoons, deer, alligators, snakes, frogs, turtles and 20 different types of birds. The abundance of wildlife was welcoming.

One day a friend, who lived a few miles away, commented about how there were bears around and not to leave anything out in your garbage that might attract them (you know, wild Alaskan salmon, extra bear pheromones, a Pot of Honey).This kid thought that was cute, Poo bear might be hungry but c'mon his house was surrounded by a golf course that was surrounded by more houses which were surrounded by even more houses. Bears shmares.

Then one day when the kid was out riding his bike by his neighborhood he came across about a dozen of these signs on a 10 mile stretch of road.

So, of course the kid thought that was cute, maybe one day he could see one on his early morning bike rides through the country side.

Life was pretty good for the kid and the supposed bears...

But like all good stories (or maybe in this case weak stories), this one too, has a climax. And like Goldilocks who's third attempt at comfort was successful, the poor, unbelieving kid had a third warning about bears, this time from an elderly woman in the street.

About 7am yesterday, I -I mean the kid- went out for a quick run around the golf course. As I (seriously though, I give up on the third person attempt, everyone knows I am the happy little ignorant kid) came up to the entrance of our cul-de-sac I had to do a double take because there was a older lady walking towards the intersection waiving her hands like a crazy person. Because it was 7 am and that is old person walking time there were about 5 of us at the intersection and I just assumed the lady was calling out to one of her friends. Nope. she was telling all of us to now go down that road since there was a huge brown bear eating people garbage. On a side note, none of us were actually going to go down that road anyway since it doesn't really go anywhere cool.

Anyway, back to the story. I learned that there really are big bears in the neighborhood somewhere and that if a crazy lady is waving her arms in the air that you should take out your headphones so you can hear what she is yelling about.

Back by Popular Demand (1 person asked)

So it's been a year and some since my last post... I am not sure you can see a pattern here, but either way it's been a while for the two people that follow(ed) this old blog.
Here goes the apology for not having shared-

- and we are back.

So, in the last year I have directed any life changing event announcements to the family blog at http://stef--nate.blogspot.com/ if you don't have it bookmarked, do it, now. but to save anyone the trouble of having to peruse through hours and hours of photos and witty writing I will sum up the last 18 months or so.

Stef got laid off from XANGO in March,
We had a baby girl in April.
Stef got a job at Close to My Heart in Aug or Sept.
I had a lot of schooling to wrap up.
I told my boss at XANGO that I would like to move up after my MBA was done.
I got laid off a few weeks later.
I bought a road bike.
I got a job in Orlando that started in March.
I finished my MBA the last week if February.
We all moved to Sunny Central Florida
The girls all got sun tans.
Now we are having fun in the sun.

So, I may update this blog more this summer, but I may not.

If I get more than 3 comments by the end of this week from more than 2 people, I will update often; otherwise I make no promises.

19 weeks...

Yes, thats how long its been since I last posted.  I could sum these past few months up in one word.  

I can't promise to  blog much more and have been doing my updates mostly through facebook.  Add me if you care to know what I am up to, otherwise I might post before October here.  No promises. 

Got to get back to work and school.

and then some

So it's been a while since I last posted. 1-because I have been wicked busy with school, and 2- I have not traveled enough to update my travel log blog.

A few weeks ago we had a huge convention at work. I put in 98 hours in six days that week. I was so incredibly tired afterward but I enjoyed the work. I love being able to see a job through to the end. (I apologize for the short sentences, but I am tired) I realized last week how great of a team I have surrounding me and how fortunate/blessed I have been to be able to work with them all. They all worked just as hard as I did last week and I heard no complaints.

School is going OK. I hate my Stats class but I am learning a ton.

Oh and by the way, I am writing this update from Borneo. Yup, its a little island owned partially by Malaysia. I have been here a few days on a work trip. It's beautiful. I spent a few days in Bangkok before coming down here and it was pretty cool there too.

I miss Stef and Alice a ton. I can't think about it though because it bums me out.

Here are a few pics from Kota Kinabalu

Pretty cool sign. The stick figures are definitely European because they are both Speedo-ing it up.
This is where a ton of the people live.
A gratuitous pics of my back end. No idea how that ended up here...
We went wake boarding in Borneo!
Rock'n it in the South China Sea.
I'm tired. I'm out...

I was proofing a thing for work today and I came across a paragraph where a customer could send a cancelation notice via telegram.  Really?(best said like SNL weekend update) 

Interesting facts.  
  • Western Union stopped sending telegraphs in 2006 (about 26 years longer than I would have thought- at best 16).  
  • iTelegram will still send a telegram to the US for almost $20, and deliver it in 2 to 4 business days!  
  • You could send one to Mexico for 29.95 + .89 per word
Anyway, its been a while since I wrote and I thought this might cheer some people up.  
-BTW I saw this before it went to print so it was not published and should not end up embarrasing any one person or department at the company (for those few co-workers who read this)-
