My first week in Barranquilla

June 6, 2013

I moved out of the hotel in downtown to a less expensive hotel on the south side of town. The area is called Soledad. The hotel here is much cheaper.

This week has been mostly exploring and learning the area, where the shopping centers are, etc.

In Barranquilla

June 3, 2013

I know I should have posted here a few days ago but haven´t had a very good time with internet cafe´s and the computers in them. I don´t have my computer here, as it was going to be shipped ocean freight with some other stuff, including my sax, but that wasn´t possible. Then I checked in to shipping air freight but that was prhibitively expensive (between $6000 and $7000). So I have no computer yet and am relying on internet cafe´s.

Rain, Rain! Go Away!

May 29, 2013

I arrived in Seattle on the 21st to a very cold, very wet welcoming. Rained off and on all through the day. Probably wouldn't have been so bad except I don't have a jacket, or a coat, being from Tucson those are rarely needed. So for this past week it has rained every day, in every city I've been to - Seattle, Lynnwood, Lake Stevens, Darrington, Leavenworth, Cashmere, Yakima, Prosser, Kennewick and Ocean Shores. Whew!

In Washington state now

May 21, 2013

I arrived in Seattle on the 21st to a cloudy, wet, and quite cold day. Was quite a shock from the near 100 degrees in Tucson. And I have no jacket with me. I packed my jacket in one of the boxes of stuff I would ship to Colombia, and I wasn't expecting Seattle to be soooooo cold. It is almost June after all. Anyway, here I am, at Patti and Chad's house. Patti is Cheryls youngest sister.

I learned something new today

May 18, 2013

I'm sure some people will laugh at me about this one, thinking 'How could you not know that?'. Well, I haven't been a bachelor all that long, only a bit less than 3 years, and I am having to learn a lot of stuff by trial and error. So it happened today.

Since I am moving out in just two days I didn't want to buy dish washer soap, and I wanted to use the dish washer to was a hat.

Offline for a few days

May 13, 2013

I am consolidating my web hosting/email/domain registration all with one company - Network Solutions. So in doing this my web site will be offline for a day or two, maybe 3, I'm not sure, as I rebuild the site. When this happens I'm not sure, probably this week some time, whenever the domain registration switches from the current registrar to the new one.

Camping World, where I work

Apr 3, 2013

I work for Camping World, the RV supplies/accessories stores. Been there for a year now. Some months back the company started this new publicity stunt called Project Good Samaritan. What it is is this: the company wants to put up a \"look at me, aren't I just the best!\" face to the public. So they mandated that every employee MUST, as in IT IS A REQUIRMENT OR ELSE YOU'LL BE FIRED, 'volunteer' for some good public project/organization, etc. It is FORCED VOLUNTEERISM, which isn't Volunteering at all. If a person is forced to do it, they are not volunteering, no matter what spin they put on it.
