February 1st, 2011 · 1 Comment

Some time has passed since my post on my car on hitting 100,000 and 111,111 miles. Since then, in November 2009, I got a “new” car in that had about 90,000 miles.  Well, I recently hit 100,000 in the new car, my 2000 Volvo S40. 99,999 miles! 100,000 miles!

Last week was my first time in California. I’ll (hopefully) be writing up more later about the trip, but we ended up at Balboa Island.  If my calculations are correct, we ended up about here.  The water wasn’t terribly cold on that day, so of course I had to run in.  I didn’t travel over […]

week-long jaunt to london

August 18th, 2008 · No Comments

So this past week I had the good fortune of being back in London, and I’m currently typing this as I sit on my plane back to the States. (Note: It took me about a week and a half after I got back to actually post this.) While a week is hardly sufficient time to […]

Yesterday was my last Sunday in London. I slept in a bit, took a shower, grabbed my camera and ventured into town. I ended up down near Big Ben and took a nice stroll along the South side of the Thames. I stumbled upon County Hall which was hosting a Star Wars exhibit that I […]

A relatively calm weekend this past weekend. Friday: Went south of Ealing to a town called Richmond, which has a lot of good restaurants and is located right along the Thames, making for a very picturesque scene, but it was night when I went, so I didn’t bring my camera. Saturday: Rugby World Cup Finals. […]
