Quick Updates

I haven't been blogging much lately. Things have been pretty busy and I just hit one of those periods where I didn't feel much like blogging. I have a few different posts in the planning stages (including my endorsement for the election) that I hope to get out soon. For now, I just wanted to do a quick update on a few fronts.

P.J. is doing well. She's learning to be a better dog, although she is still somewhat of a puppy at times. A new neighbor just moved in next door and he has a part bird dog/part something named M.J.! PJ and MJ have met a couple of times and seem to get along. It's good for her to be around other dogs so she can learn to not be so excited when she sees one.

On the music front, I borrowed a bass guitar from a friend and he ended up selling it to me. I found a amp head on craigslist and bought a nice cabinet to go with it. I've been playing about a month and am picking things up pretty quick. I'm still playing guitar, but have been playing bass a lot more. Here's my rig...

Alec and Zack are doing well. Alec has been driving since May and is handling it well. The marching band show is much better this year (music and show) and Alec is in his 2nd year marching snare. Zack is in 6th grade and thinks he is big-time now. He still gets cracked up (I do too) at some of our catch phrases and made up sayings.

There have been a few changes at work and there will be some news coming soon about work. I will cover those later.

I haven't finished it yet, but I highly recommend the book Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries by Naomi Wolf. I also read her End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot, which was also very good.
