all by myself i did it

that's one of my favorite quotes from my favorite tv show - it's always sunny in philadelphia, by sweet dee

it's about 5 misfits who run a bar in philadelphia. while i don't own a bar, i have been known to be a misfit in several. anyway, so i finally did a soundslides presentation (joe, you'd be so proud that i've finally joined the 21st century)

all by myself i did it

if you're bored and want to see it click here

and click on the slideshow - meanwhile here's a pic from it.

this is my first attempt at a photoshop composite illustration - the ones i've done in the past were all in camera but this was mainly computer generated. the illustration was for a summer reading article.

day off

had a free day today and for fun went to the rodeo and local fair. decided to make some pictures in between watching baby goats fight each other and staring at a lot of fried food.

the lower picture is of a bull rider who got hurt while riding. i was scared just to have dirt kicked on me by a bull. i can't even imagine riding one.

lost dad

this man lost his father in vietnam - he was a little boy when his father died.

the military never found his remains till recently. and even though he is a grown adult he got very emotional talking about his father. i can't imagine growing up without my dad - all the support i have gotten from him over the years is immense.

i felt lucky to spend time with this guy and to make a picture with the only photograph he had of his father.


saw this guy "fishing" in his plastic pool - the heat has finally arrived in connecticut - funny how everyone keep talking about how hot it is here and i still have flashbacks of winter so i'm quite ok with warmer temps.

on a side note, i'm still working on a couple of longer-term projects so once those are done i'll post some from those.

from a story about this restaurant which happens to charge as much for one meal as 63 plates of my famous beans and rice.

but man the food looked yummy.
