After years of trying to make it work, my wife and I are filing for divorce. It is very friendly and not acrimonious at all. Instead it is more a sense of sad resignation that we have reached the end and there is no where left to go. We will file the papers on Monday, Nov. 15th and it will take 90 days to become...

Short blog entry today.

I was basically told last night that I was not worth the effort. It stung a little bit but now I know where I stand.

So as of today I am separated from my wife. I do not need this crap anymore.

So yesterday was trick or treat night here in Des Moines. It is my favorite day of the year.

But it is a lot of hard. We do not put up any decorations until the actual day. And so it is always a long day to get everything setup and put out all the decorations. Basically about ten hours of work for two priceless hours...

Some of you may remember back in February me talking about how my marriage was failing and I was consider stepping out so to speak.

Well after talking to a lot of people and getting a lot of opinions, I decided not to do it after all, at least not to do it behind her back. Instead I told her how was feeling and that...

Good luck. My parents did essentially the same thing only they didn't stick to it, as they were supposed to wait until both kids were out of the house...I hope it works for you, I think it's the most respectable way to go about it.

One of my favorite things to buy is old punk and ska compilations. There are so many great bands that few people have ever heard of on these albums. It is a great way to find out about them.

My latest acquisitions:
Ska Down Her Way Vol 1 & 2
Skarmegeddon Vol 1 & 2 (I already had 3 & 4)
Skanarcy vol 1 - 3

I was using...

So I have had a crappy couple of weeks at work. To much to do and not nearly enough hours to do it all in. Last week was 60 hours and this week it has already been 35 and I still have the rest of the day to go.

But it will all be worth it tomorrow. I am leaving in the morning for Chicago...

Who are you going to see in Chicago? I'm wishing I had watched it now when it was on but I hate getting into series late while they are still on TV so I'll wait till they are over and just watch them all on DVD.
