I was doing the math and realized that it’s been 12 weeks since Circuit City folded and I’ve been unemployed. At first, the thought is a little frightening - that I could be out of work for 3 months. However, I’ve been struck by how much I’ve adjusted. I no longer […]
With my former employer Circuit City fading into retail history, I thought I would try to resurrect this blog. Before, this was where I wrote about music (which I still love) and whatever current events tickled my interest.

Driving back from the Black Keys show on Saturday, Michael and I noticed that there are signs every 10th of a mile on Interstate 95. The old mile markers made sense. Now, you drive past a marker every six seconds. Between Fredericksburg and northern Hanover, the signs consist of a larger plate […]
The humongous project is now gone and I’m back to normal. I’m also looking at some ways of updating the site using software (Word Press) rather than doing everything by hand. So far so good, now I just need something to say.
