Goodbye, LiveJournal.

I'm moving. I just don't seem to ever spend any time here anymore, so I'm concentrating my efforts here:

Feel free to add this to your favorite blog reader.

I will miss a lot of my LJ friends - there are a few of you who I've added to my google reader, but if you want to keep in touch, by all means let me know via email, or comment on the blog.

Thanks.

"And I'm starting to think it could happen to me like it did to you
And I'm starting to actually feel it seep through the slick divide now
I don't crack the door too far for anyone who's pushing too hard on me"

If the legacy weren't already assured... from washingtonpost.com:

President Bush today refused to rule out a pardon for I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, one day after he spared the former White House aide prison time by commuting the 30-month sentence imposed after Libby's perjury conviction in the CIA leak case.

An unanswered question last night was Vice President Cheney's role in advocating leniency for his former chief of staff and alter ego. The vice president has been outspoken in his admiration for Libby, even in the face of the jury's verdict that his former aide perjured himself. "He's one of the most dedicated public servants I've ever worked with, and I think this is a great tragedy," Cheney said after Libby's conviction in March.


America, can we please remember this time...?

Went to Berkeley Springs, West Virginia for a couple of days. Took a few pics on the way up, but nothing of any great import. It was a pleasant enough trip, though I doubt I would go back.

Shentai was amazing. Like nothing I have ever seen before.

We played ball tonight and won 15-14 in the bottom of the last inning when the opposing pitcher walked in the winning run. Not a great way to win, but we'll take it.

And now, a napping dog.

My show this weekend was fun and somewhat more successful than I had planned. Not that I will be retiring anytime soon.

This week: Lots of housepainting, various social activities, kickball, softball, etc.

I tried to save a turtle today. I went back for him, but saw drops of blood next to him in the road. He was still alive, but didn't seem to have much life. I was a little unsure - maybe it would have been more humane to put him out of his misery (not that I would have been able to do this, really) - but I I took him back into some woods and left him there. I doubt he survived, but I tried to do the best I could.

This is from a few months ago. I think it's a brown pelican. Nags Head, NC.
