Vacation Photos with Hello Photoblogging

I thought I’d try out the new Hello! Photoblogging feature from blogger. Cousin Kristi take note…photo hosting for free!!! (We want pictures of Spain!) Not too shabby if I must say so myself. Here are some pre-morbid photos of my vacation (before the sciatic pain with neurologic deficit manifested itself). If you want post-morbid photos, you’ll have to ask my…

More Books Read

Seven Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer is one of the best adventure stories that could possibly exist. This book is definately in my top five all time favorites, far above Tintinalli, Harrison’s and yes, even Netter. After finishing the book, I went to my local library to learn more about tibet. All they had was a book called “My…

The Most Popular Kid in Class…

If you’re a new visitor…Mr. Hassle didn’t get to be my favorite online site by me posting randomly about CSS, birds, how far I’ve walked and random Google searches. Sure, anyone of these topics might make an OK thematic blog. But Mr. Hassle’s true soul lies currently in the archives. Please visit any of my “FAV ENTRIES” in the right…

Round Trip

Well, today was the best walking day I’ve had so far. I made it round trip to the coffee shop and back. Up until now, the coffee jerk, or one of his customer’s has been giving me a ride home. It’s probably a 2 mile round trip, or a little less. On the way home, though, I did stop at…
