My brother Michael and I both love Star Wars, but he’s much more obsessed than I’ve ever been. It’s one of his many obsessions, while another that fascinates him is history. He’s a clever guy, which means you can easily get into a long discussion with him about the newest movie. Or one of the… Continue reading Which side are you on? I used to play for the Dark one, but I’m more and more Jedi the older I get

You had a raincoat? and other obvious questions
Good morning 2020 (written early New Year’s Day morning). What a wild ride it’s already been, and I’m still in my pyjamas. My mother, who’s nickname when she was young was ‘Fafa’ so that’s what I call her here, and I have talked briefly, which because of the time difference between here and the States… Continue reading You had a raincoat? and other obvious questions
Natural order & how I got to Germany
If you’re new here, this blog is purposeless. Truly. Essentially I’m writing to eventually connect with potential clients. Or to be more clear, they know me elsewhere or meet me at some networking event, which I despise by the way, and then we connect on LinkedIn or tumblr or some other stumbling social media site… Continue reading Natural order & how I got to Germany
What I’ve done since the last time I blogged (last week just before #DigitalFreeSunday) – a long strange trip it’s been
It’s been another hell of a week, but I knew it was coming. So I planned accordingly. Quite a few things fall by the wayside when my life gets too busy, but the first thing’s blogging. I’m still writing, of course. Both professionally and privately. I’m working on a project right now that’s a dating… Continue reading What I’ve done since the last time I blogged (last week just before #DigitalFreeSunday) – a long strange trip it’s been
Hahahahaha … you know how to make a nice shot and you can get a better place for it
That title is completely computer generated. Just typed ‘Hahahahaha’ in & then used predictive text to create it. Someone told me recently that nobody read content anymore. It was a graphic designer or website builder, so it’s clear they’ve got another agenda than I do. Why even write. A blog? Really? It’s 2020 — who… Continue reading Hahahahaha … you know how to make a nice shot and you can get a better place for it
getting the band together again
Jarrod’s not playing, so it might be weird to keep calling it Old Braunfels. Who knows, though. It’s a good name for a band in Munich, whose members predominantly come from Texas. However, we’ve got something else going on and Vancouver Michael will most likely have a considerable impact. Nina Kuhlig, who you might remember… Continue reading getting the band together again
if you don’t like it or think I should grieve otherwise, you could perhaps go read something else
‘The subtle mental shifts we experience over time and how they lead us down our paths’ Heidi Jones There’s my writing prompt. It’s from my friend Heidi, who I saw recently at my thirtieth high school reunion. That was a trip, by the way. Like a psychedelic one, I mean. The good kind of trip.… Continue reading if you don’t like it or think I should grieve otherwise, you could perhaps go read something else
please don’t take my translations here too seriously, oh and am I now taking requests?
Not that I normally do this, but I guess now I’m taking requests. Asked a friend what she thought I should write about, and she had kind of a funny response. Funny haha not funny weird…well, I suppose a little funny weird. Don’t start getting ideas, though. I’m not a trained monkey here simply to… Continue reading please don’t take my translations here too seriously, oh and am I now taking requests?
how can you mend a broken heart? with a Vizsla puppy, of course
Now, you’d probably immediately jump to the conclusion that the term miracle, in this case, is a bit over the top. You’d be wrong. If you know anything at all about me, you know that I’ve spent a lot of the last nearly fifteen years posting photos and stories about my sister and brother Vizslas… Continue reading how can you mend a broken heart? with a Vizsla puppy, of course
Put your devices away…machines aren’t people
This social media lark is just that. It’s not serious. No matter what you’ve been told. Nothing going on online is more important than the people sitting in front of you.
