Blogging about blogs

So, I don’t ususully do much in the way of reposting other people’s content … but that being said.  Boss Man posted a blog entry about wanting to get some ideas for some new reads … which, of course led to a whole series of comments.  Most of which are blogs that I either, already subscribe to, or have looked at and sorta keep on the back burner, but are not in my top 40.  But this blog I found really interesting: TED Ideas worth Spreading Particularly because of what was on the top of their blog; this article.

Habits of happiness: Matthieu Ricard on

What is happiness, and how can we all get some? Buddhist monk, photographer and author Matthieu Ricard has devoted his life to these questions, and his answer is influenced by his faith as well as by his scientific turn of mind: We can train our minds in habits of happiness. Interwoven with his talk are stunning photographs of the Himalayas and of his spiritual community. (Recorded February 2004 in Monterey, California. Duration: 21:06.)   



Update ?

So if I write simply for the sake of writing, with nothing in particular to say, and no news to divulge … is it really an update? Well, clearly I am not the one to answer the question, and all previous requests for even a single comment have gone unheard, but if you are reading, and you have an answer, leave it in a comment. It’s really neat to have comments …

Work is going really well. The boys and Hong are great! Aidan is enjoying pre-school, and there may or may not have been an incident where he was hit by stick, but we have yet to get to the bottom of that. The PTA president thing certainly takes up more time than I thought it would, but it does seem as if things are moving forward in that arena, so it’s hard to complain too much.

Love all, D 😉

New Look …

Speant the morning switching up my site a bit … I decided that the dark look was making everything feel a little heavy, so I’ve lightened things up a bit. It was also an exercise on my part to test out some of my newly aquired CSS skills. If you don’t know what that is, and have a few seconds go and read about it here. There really isn’t much new in the content area … but I was entertaining the idea of moving the photos portion over to flickr …. any thoughts?

-Love all.

Wow, no blog … blog.

Hello World! Wow, long time no blog. I must start out by apologizing for my lengthy absence. It has been a whirlwind month. We started out with a gratuitous stay at Children’s Hospital. Marcos had a spinal de-tethering surgery. Then our PTA presidency kicked into full swing. Followed by the first day of school; more PTA business; more hospital time; and yet even more PTA stuff. I have put up a website for Dylan’s new business, Race Orchestral Strings. And made a great many changes to our school website too.

I know, no excuse to leave my loyal readership (both of you), but it happened, and I will try not to let it happen again.

Tuesday morning ramblings

I don’t know how many people read this blog … I would guess, from the fact that no one has ever clicked the comment link at the bottom of any of the posts, that the answer would be – very few.  I had a vision of targeting this vast number of people, and bringing together my family and friends; dozens of comments per post, and a near Utopian online gathering place …

So today, Tuesday morning, I am working in my office, a nice little space by the way.  Pushing pixels around and getting some images together for one of our stock agencies.  I am wearing Khakis and a polo shirt and my comfy shoes.  What are YOU doing?

So, to that end, I implore you.  Leave a comment on this post and tell me about your Tuesday …

New Site

The new site is coming along swimmingly. I have decided to go with this slightly different blogging format in order to facilitate uploading entries from anywhere. Hong says that as long as she can see the picture, she doesn’t care what software I use.

Ahh Blogging

So this is the first part in the migration of my new web site. It seems like I change the whole layout every few months … and I think that I do. I just think that I find new things that inspire me and I have to make changes … Maybe it’s just that I am never satisfied, and hard to please … you pick.
