I guess it’s back to drinking beer

Sparks is no longer being produced. Get’em while they’re cold.

Etnies party revisited

pdxpipeline has a nice bit on the party as well.

flickr too!

I finally broke down and got me a flickr account. Now I have photos at picasaweb, facebook, and flickr. So, now I have wonder…what goes where? I’m thinking that the picasaweb will continue to be my library-type space. Pretty much all my photos go there. Then facebook gets the goofy fun ones, the parties, whatever. And lastly, flickr will diplay my favorites. Some I think are good photos, some are representative of what I’m about, and some just end up there.

So now I guess it’s time to play around with my online galleries and see what really excels where, doing what. Any thoughts on that? How do you use galleries online?

You May Have Heard (Email Campaign)

Date: 10/19/2008

Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama for president (of the United States). Personally, I think this is huge. A Republican who has always provided a steady, well-reasoned approach, he is widely respected on both sides of the aisle.

But this is more than “a rightie supports Obama.” This is support from a figure broadly and recently well-regarded in national defense.

“As gifted as he is, he is essentially going to execute the Republican agenda, the orthodoxy of the Republican agenda, with a new face and a maverick approach to it, and he’d be quite good at it,” Mr. Powell said. “But I think we need a generational change.” – Colin Powell


Hopefully this helps to dispel any doubts about Obama’s ability to lead, the untrue accusations about his relationships, and his ability to handle our diverse wars.

The linked article is brief and interesting.

My Email Campaign

Tired of all the right-wing emails I’d receive, and especially the fact (yes, fact) that most of them contain gross inaccuracies or straightout lies, I began writing and sending my own emails. I am trying to keep them as factual as possible, and while they highlight issues more popular on the left than on the right, I am trying to present facts in a “think about it” approach, rather than an editorial.

I’ve received requests from friends to send these emails so that they can forward to their families, so I’m going to post them here. I’ll include legacy emails too, so at first they won’t be in any particular order than the one I find them in.
