Fountain of youth?

A customer told me that he started using Apple products, “Probably before you were alive.” I told him I doubted that and asked when he used his first Apple product. He started in 1985. That blew me away, did he really think I was only 25? I’ve been told I look young, but 25?   …

I don’t even care if it works…

… I’m in love. I could stare at this all day.   Of course, this looks like it should be amazing. Fuji has always made good lenses and everyone has been waiting for them to make another camera with their amazing sensors. This could be it, this could be the thing that gets me to …

Punk Rock and Dinah Shore

Here’s one that folks don’t hear a lot. It’s from an Austrailian punk band called the Victims. The song is “Television Addict” and it was released back in ’77. There was a slightly more famous version (at least here in the states)done by the Helicopters, but this is the original. I love the “snarl” of …

A gender role/culture question

When did women start liking professional sports? I distinctly remember high school and earlier when it was strictly a guy thing. There’s no question that there is a lot more female fans than ever before, and it seems to be across most sports. I also know that the various leagues marketed sports to women, but …

More frivolous spending (games)

I’m not much of a gamer, but I do, on occasion spend some time playing them. Recently, I have spent an unconscionable amount of time playing Bejewelled. The thing about that is that I haven’t really gotten any better. I think my all time high score is north of 200,000, but I have friends that …

Early warning signs of MS

I’m writing this post for anyone that might find it via Google in the future. Looking back, I can see a lot of early signs of my MS, but because I didn’t pay enough attention and couldn’t find anything about them, I ignored them. Would I have gotten treatment sooner? I dunno, but it would …

Unnerved (MS related)

The day after my first Tysabri infusion, I felt pretty good. Part of me thinks I felt better than normal, but like I said before, I’m going to try to not go crazy looking for improvements just yet. Of course, I also said the same thing about side effects. Well… I woke up at 7:00 …

First treatment down

As expected, it was a non event. Spent a little over two hours with an IV stuck in me. I was the only one getting an infusion that late so I sat there and chatted with the nurse the whole time. I think I’ve got her convinced to go to Yemen…   And now comes …

My next camera?

I know, I hardly ever shoot these days, so why am I looking at cameras? Habit I guess, I started looking around for the hell of it and was amazed to see some of the newer cameras out there. It looks like they are actually starting to make the camera that I had wished for …
