I’m Still Alive & Kicking It

So, guess what I did today…

I’ll give you a hint:


Yup, you saw correctly. I had to submit to fingerprinting at the Johnson County Kansas Sheriff’s office. My hands still reek of the ink solvent. (smells like a truckstop bathroom)

That’s the final hurdle towards getting my concealed carry permit. So any of you considering stalking me, please be forewarned, I’m armed and dangerous.

What else have I been up to, you ask? Well, Sunday I played a round of golf. I did pretty well… scored a 68. On the first hole. Ok, not really.. but I did score somewhere upwards of 120… not too great on a course that’s supposed to be a par 72. I’m a much better shot with a gun than with a golf club.

Also, I’ve been a little less active online since I started school two weeks ago. I’m taking two lovely classes… Enterprise Resource Planning Systems, and Forecasting Theory. Both are going to be interesting, Forecasting is going to be quite difficult. However, I’m looking forward to it, because the idea of being able to tell the future is very appealing.

The hosting business is really taking off in a big way. I’ve taken on several new large corporate accounts, and believe it or not, have gone past “breaking even” and I’m now turning a profit. Because of that I can offer blog accounts for free (https://thejournalcafe.com) or for 15$ a year with a personal domain name (https://ihswebsolutions.com). If you’re having trouble with Diaryland, Blogger, Diary-X, or you just haven’t yet started a site, take a look…. with the free account, what do you have to lose?

Jenna has also started school… she’s majoring in Interior Design, and so far she loves it. She hasn’t been updating much, so I thought I’d let you know so you wouldn’t think I killed her and stuffed her in a hole in my back yard. She just got a promotion at work, and started her new position there today. It meant switching locations, but more money and responsibility made it worth the effort.

Much has been said today about Steve Irwin “the Croc Hunter.” Steve had a close encounter with a sting ray. I don’t have too much to say about it, except… the man was on his last couple of heartbeats, and he was still man enough to yank a 10 inch barb from his chest. Granted, it didn’t save him, but DANG, what a man.

    You’ve always been armed. I’d say dangerous too, but I don’t want to get into a political discussion right before bedtime…

    I’ve been taking more suggestions for a website name and they’re pretty funny … dirty, but funny. Once I decided I’ll be coming for you …

    And you know the smell of a truckstop bathroom because?

    HA. Well, NGD, I’ve been in a truckstop bathroom or two in my time. I used to be lonely.

    Liv, I can’t wait to get your site set up!
