About

In 2006, my wife and I moved to “the South”. Coming from Seattle, this has been a bit of a change. Happily, finding a great community who have made us feel welcome has made this transition relatively painless.  (Being invited to join the family bowling team also helped.)

This blog is about going somewhere. Not anywhere in particular, just somewhere. Between running, photography, flea markets and road trips, it feels like I’ve been somewhere and am always going elsewhere. The articles vary, and hopefully will be entertaining. (Or at the least, maybe the pictures will make it worthwhile.) Mostly, I’ll be talking about running, since that’s what I tend to do a lot of, but there will be plenty of other stuff too.

I’ll also talk about work, hopefully without embarrassing anyone. Sometimes, there may be something that I feel I need to share, and this seems like a good place to do it.

By day, I spend my time programming. For those that care about these things, I’m a .Net guy. I started back in the day with VBA and VB6, but currently work in C#.  (I have legacy apps in VB6 and VB.Net that I support.)  My main focus is moving data around; in the office, I’m the EDI guy.  I took the ragtag bunch of programs my predecessors left and built the department into a robust data processing machine, supporting hundreds of interfaces to customers across the country.

In 2009, our family started expanding, and we now have two wonderful kids. Some of our adventures have changed, but we’re still always going somewhere.

A while ago, I was tagged on an online blog game (of sorts). The post that answers those deep and personal questions is here.

Disclaimers and legal stuff

I’ve been told that there are some government issued guidelines about stuff like this:

1. I use affiliate links on occassion. If there is a link that goes somewhere such as Amazon, it’s probably an affiliate link. That means, I’m getting a few cents if you buy something through the link. This money helps support the site by paying for hosting fees. (No, I’m not getting rich here, and I have a day job with no intention of quitting it.)
If you’d like to help support the site, please consider buying something through the links.

2. I am not a medical professional. Any health and diet advice is soley based on my opinion, and that of friends, family, and Google. Please consult your physician if you have serious conditions.

3. If you enter your email address, I will not sell it. I hate getting spam as much as everyone else.

4. Please leave comments and join in the discussion. It makes the world a better place.
