The balloons were launched from Paisley in Scotland. Last night a reply was received from Drumquin in Ireland.

So far so ordinary. However our grandparents before they moved to Scotland came from a small place in Ireland called Drumquin. :-)


Cool.


balloon travelled nearly 200 miles to where my grandparents were from. turns out balloons were launched around 100 metres from their first lodgings in Scotland. spooky stuff

Rented out my Oregon place today to a new COO of a leading healthcare system in Oregon. He's leasing for a year. I don't think I'll have to worry about rent - he pulls down over $20,000 per month.

They have four pets. Two cats and two dogs and the dogs are service animals. I get that a Labrador is a service animal, but a Korgi?

You should ask him for tickets to blazers games.

I applied for a couple jobs this week and got some responses. Phone interviews for a communications director position at the school of journalism, University of Oregon and Sales and Marketing Director for a local, regional electronics distributor. For the electronics distributor, I interviewed for a catalog coordinator position like 15 years ago. That's when companies like that provided quarterly product catalogs for customers. A lot of catalog printing went out of business with the internet.

What the hell happened to James Harden and Lionel Aldridge? It was like the monsters getting the NBA players' abilities like in Space Jam.

Dude, there's only like 10 people that frequent this place these days. Just waiting for them to tell us to go home and not come back.

Today was the first day taking over from my previous boss. I'm a "manager" now.
The only thing that's changed is that I have less time to come here and keep Markus company when he's feeling lonely.
I run out of talent

Next five or six years - it gets better after second or third grade.

You'll appreciate that illnesses were all you had to worry about when boys start calling.

We were praying tonight and apparently some little dude named Jack deserves a prayer separate from "todos los niños del collegio."
