Tripping To Fleetwood Mac by primowalker
Tripping To Fleetwood Mac
Taken during the Fleetwood Mac concert, Lincoln, NE last night.

They didn't allow cameras with detachable lenses so I couldn't bring the Canon.  I took this with my iPhone 4.  No alterations at all have been made to the photo.  I really like the trippy way it came out.
Loading...
I haven't written a journal entry here in a while so I thought I'd write one to catch you all up.

I started a new job in September.  I've worked as a Unix Systems Administrator for the better part of the past 10 years.  When I lost my job two years ago, I was out of work for six months before I found work as a Field Engineer, fixing servers and such.  It was an OK job, but paid a lot less than what I was making before.  Also, the office was small, with just 4 or 5 of us covering 300 sq mile area centered around Omaha, NE.  

Besides the pay, I had to deal with an office of middle-aged, male cry babies.  Most of them would complain about pretty much everything.  All of them were religiously conservative and very outspoken about it.  I had to listen to them complain about our Muslim President constantly (yes, they seriously believed that, along with every other Fox News conspiracy theory you can think of).  Only one of them was of any real intelligence and common sense.  He was the team leader, a South African who at least had a clue as to how the real work works.

Still listening to these idiots talk all day about how much they hated Obama and liberals was stressful.  Being a liberal atheist from New England I felt pretty marginalized.  

Fortunately, as I mentioned earlier, I found a new job working as a Unix Systems Administrator again.  I work 7:30pm - 7:30am 3-4 nights a week (alternating 3 on, 4 off; 4 on, three off).  I love it!  I worked nights before and I really enjoy it.  The fact that I'm making what I used to make is even better.

The family is good.  My son moved back to Massachusetts where he is living with his grandmother, working, and planning to go back to school.  My daughter is doing really well in school.  She's a junior this year and has been looking into colleges.  She's thinking U of Nebraska at Lincoln, or Iowa State.  

So that's it, really.  

Love to all.

Human begin, a father, and lover, in that order. I'm also a secular humanist, an atheist, a blogger (freethinkingfordummies.com), writer, thinker, photographer and and a very amateur musician.

I live in the great state of Nebraska where the Huskers rule and corn is king. It also happens to have the only unicameral state government in the U.S. I love thunderstorms (which is a good thing considering where I live!).

I love science, especially astronomy, physics, and evolutionary biology.
