Something techie

So, being a geek, I sure am behind the times. I spend a little bit of time each week reading blogs, typically clicking links from my blog to what I want to read. This can be time consuming and fruitless at times. If a blog hasn't been updated, I have clicked through for no reason. RSS readers have been around for a long time, I know. I just never really found one that I liked. That is, until I tried Google Reader from Google labs. It's cool, easy to manage and makes blog reading easy. It's allowed me to add more blogs and feeds and read in a much more efficient manor. Try it out!

Earth Day

Didn't even realize until today that yesterday was Earth Day. Ends up I celebrated in my favorite way, by cutting down some trees.*

*I don't advocate cutting trees for the hell of it, but if they're threatening property or are diseased/dead, no problem.

Mass murder v/and suicide

Flippant? Why, yes! Opt for the suicide and leave the rest of us out of your misery.

What's going on

Non-ASFA folks might want to just keep on moving... Last weekend I was in Phoenix for the ASFA ACoD. I thought the convention went well, even though we didn't pass the Discipline article that had been demanded at last year's convention. I'm amazed that this didn't pass. Last year, the uproar was about the ASFA BoD getting involved in what basically boils down to a breeder dispute. The floor of the ACoD was outraged (even though this wasn't included in the official minutes... hmmm) and demanded that CRC re-work Article IX (discipline) to include some limit on jurisdiction. Unfortunately, in the manner of the ACoD, delegates were either too unfamiliar with the background or were too involved with their own agendas to vote for what was obviously a step forward.

If you're reading this and you're involved in the "legislative" process of ASFA, please feel free to request information about this. Luckily, the issue will come back in front of the ACoD next year for another vote.

Good things

It might have only been 45 degrees, with a wicked wind whipping, but baseball came back to Atlanta last weekend. Thanks to one of Andrew's suppliers, Andrew, Neil, Will and I went to the game on Saturday. Yeah, we froze, but there was beer, peanuts and baseball. To me, it's a combination that's hard to beat! Oh, the good guys won the game too. Got to see John Smoltz pitch a nice game and hand the traitor Tom Glavine a loss. Not a bad day at all!
