OK, this year I resolve to regularly post on this blog

I promise to try and post more regularly on this blog. My present plan is to write a post every week. Plan on reading about how I love my iPad, Windows 7 phone, and how I lost 100 lbs in a year. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

2009. The Year I Actually Post on This Blog?

 

Maybe, maybe not. Although I’ll attempt to blog on a more regular basis, no promises J

Why I back Jack or Dave

OK, originally, this was going to be a post of why I support Jack Markell for Governor. That may still turn out to be the case, but Dave Burris over at First State Politics has announced that he is considering running for Governor. So now I have no idea who I may ultimately support. But let me tell you why I may support either of these candidates for Governor

A little background about me: I have worked for the State of Delaware for over 20 years. My first eight years I was a Correctional Officer and the last twelve years I have worked as a computer network/ IT guy for several state agencies. I will put it to you as delicately as I’m in the mood to: THERE IS SEVERE NEED FOR CHANGE in Delaware State Government. Let me list the things that I’d like in a Governor/and or political system

  1. I’d like in a Governor who, I perceive, that can understand the issues.
  2. I’d like a Governor who would stand by their convictions. This particular administration seems to have been put in place to grant political favors for certain people. With the exception of the smoking ban, the Governor hasn’t done anything remotely original or risky.
  3. I’d like a political system that would be open and transparent, not behind closed doors or decided by the BIG HEADS
  4. I’d like actual debate on the issues, not closed away in some desk drawer.

Even if I disagree on some of the issues with each candidate, I think both would do a good job for this state.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! One of my resolutions is to update this blog weekly. We’ll see how long that lasts, but I’ll give it my best shotJ

So Maybe Root Canal’s Don’t Quite Suck Anymore

Before I start this, you need to understand one thing about me. I HATE GOING TO THE DENTIST! So where was I today? The Dentist. And let me explain something. I have had very painful experiences with most dental work. This includes the time that I wasn’t numbed sufficently, and the I could feel the drilling down to my toes.Dental work to me means xx minutes of white knuckle panic and anxiety.

 I was there for a dental crown that turned into a root canal. Had it done this morning. Now it’s 5:00 PM and the novicane has worn off.

 So my question is: Has dentristry gotten better or have I been stuck with some bad dentists? The experience I had this morning was more of boredom, not pain, not anxiety. Not that I want to pay that bill again, but maybe I’m now over my fear of dentists.

Hello world!

OK, so here’s resolution #1. Done and Done
