Here’s 3 vids from the latest typhoon. Fortunately the 3rd typhoon that I mentioned in the previous post isn’t going to affect Taiwan. During my bike ride by the river last Thursday I saw a lot of damage and how high the river rose. Kudos to everyone involved in the cleanup… heavy machinery everywhere. I […]

July 13th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Day In Between

David Roadcup and Darrell Bock paired up to make the week memorable in so many ways. I have not looked […]

May 27th, 2008 · 4 Comments

The Strawman Is Coming!
