    When first light reached over the hill and touched the far side of the lake, he pushed off in his little boat and rowed two-hundred feet out into the darkness. The water was calm. The night creatures chirped. The birds began solitary songs to greet the dawn. He could feel his breath crystalline in...

    This afternoon at work, I went and helped a colleague deal with a software problem. We use a site online to help share files with clients, and she struggles to use it correctly quite often. We worked through her issue, and when I came back to my desk, I had a moment where I...

    5:45 PM: “I guess it’s Panda again since I don’t cook because I am too lazy to go to the store. I’ll be good tonight and get Black Pepper Chicken with half mixed veggies and half chow mein. Oh, spring rolls sound good too though.” 5:48 PM: “Yikes! How did this ATM card crack...

    I got up this morning a bit early to try and get a little more research done before heading into the office. The topic, again, was de Anza-related. I figure if I continue to hit topics around the substantial moments of his life for the next 5 years, the essentials of the story I...
