It has been quite an interesting week or so, lots of things going on that will have an impact on my life over the next few weeks to few months.  First thing’s first though, my “cave” is now complete because I have now mounted that television that’s been sitting on the floor for weeks.  Here it is, directly in front of my desk:

This wall never looked so good!

I’ve already broken it in by watching The Day After Tomorrow, a movie that someone used to prove a point related to climate change or global warming, or whatever you call it.  Yes, it was as good this time as the last 20 or so times prior.  It really is a good movie set smack in the middle of what I call the “end of the world” genre.

Have some potential of getting a new position at work that is in the very beginning stages, otherwise I’d put more details into the post.  Lets just put it out there that it would be a promotion, more responsibility and of course a moderate bump in salary.  There would be travel associated with this position as well which doesn’t really make me excited, but the higher up you go, the more you travel.

I’ve also officially signed on with as a contributor and have started posting op-ed’s on their site.  If you’re interested in seeing what I’ve been writing about, you can check out my author profile.  Be sure to check out the entire site as there are multiple contributors all with their own style of writing.  It truly is a good mix of writers that post about all sorts of topics.  I’m glad that I took the initiative and reached out, it’s been fun writing in a different style than I’m used to, which surprisingly, hasn’t been as hard as I had originally thought.

You can also see at this point, I’ve finally decided on a premium theme that I think I’ll be keeping for a while.  I don’t have a plan that allows me to tinker with CSS or any of that stuff, but I liked the look so much I felt what the hell.  Actually buying one removes my urge to constantly browse the free themes and make changes to the look, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but for me it’s a time suck that I just can’t afford.  Ok, I got a theme I like now, so onward.

One final random thing, it’s been ridiculously warm in the northeast US for the last few days, easily in the mid-70’sF.  There are buds on the trees, the geese are flying back north (pooping on my car!), and for cripes sake the grass is getting green again.  I spent over $300 to get the snow blower fixed between last year and this year and dammit, I’m going to mow my law for the first time with the damn snow blower if it doesn’t snow at least a few inches this winter.  Remember, make sure to use fuel stabilizer and ethanol neutralizer in the fuel for your small engines, otherwise you’ll be replacing the carburetors every few years.

Enjoy the week peeps!  See you Thursday.
