I’m still here!

I know, I know…. It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve popped in to blog – I even missed the last two Weekly Photo Challenges…. Horrors!  I plan to do those momentarily.

I’m having this battle with myself about taking time to blog.  I feel guilty taking the time when I have so much work to do….  I’m working from home now – doing Instructional Design consulting.  Yeap.  I took the plunge to work for myself!

I’m working on a website and two business blogs right now – it’s a huge task.  I have them all set to go as far as how they look and feel, but still developing the content, which is the major task.

I haven’t been following the Casey Anthony goings-on, but have heard that a movie, based on Jeff Ashton’s book,  is in the works.  Good for him!  I’m glad he’s doing so well.

I heard through the grapevine that Jose Baez has a book out, or has one coming out – I’m not sure which it is.  I’d venture to say few people will want to read it.  What can Jose Baez say other than “I told ya’ so!” (Which no one in their right mind believed was possible at the time.)

It still floors me.  We all thought, no way can such an inexperienced trial lawyer win that case!   Hah!  He did it.  We all wore eggs on our face after that, big time.

I’m amazed that the Casey Anthony story continues to generate news!  It’s so crazy!  I get Google-Alerts on the topic of Casey Anthony and it never fails that EVERY day, somewhere – someone is talking about something related to that trial.  It seems to be a foregone conclusion that little Miss Beautiful Life is going to have a perpetual OJ Simpson-like reputation for life.

Well, life goes on, doesn’t it? It doesn’t change much, but it goes on!

Here’s a little gift from me:

weekly photo challenge: Summer

The weekly photo challenge word is “Summer”.

Holding the string, at the other end of this kite are a couple of boys and their Dad.  The kids were thrilled when the kite caught the wind and really took off.  It was a beautiful sight; and seemed the epitome of summer.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to post a photo that speaks “peaceful,” and this one works for me.

This is Pompano Beach, Florida, which is my home.  Well, I don’t live on the ocean and this is not my view, unfortunately (or fortunately, during hurricane season!).

Although yesterday was an incredible day, it was hardly peaceful for me!

Yesterday began with a 7:30 am breakfast-tribute to the memory of Martin Luther King, Stand for Something.

The Broward County YMCA puts on this Martin Luther King Inspirational  Breakfast program each year.  This year J.R. Martinez – Iraq war Veteran, and more recently, winner of the Dancing with the Stars show, was the Keynote Speaker.

And, former Dancing with the Stars contestant and newly retired Miami Dolphins football great, Jason Taylor was honored with the Spirit Award, from the YMCA.

I’ll write about the event tomorrow – it was very special.

Then, I had a phone interview with Microsoft.  Yes, THE Microsoft!!

The other day I wrote something about all the applications and jobs that I have on the burner and how I didn’t want to accept anything from Acme Computers if Microsoft called…. And…

Well….,

They called!

Who would have thunk it?  They saw my resume online and called ME?  OMG!

Well, I don’t have the job – yet.  And, although I want to keep really positive about getting it….well, I’m realistic, too.

And I had another great interview with a firm that I like very much…

Then, last night, I saw a wonderful play about, of all things, wrestling!  I am hardly anyone who enjoys wrestling – but I have a new-found respect for the show-business side of it now.

If you happen to be in the South Florida area, GO SEE this play.  You will love it!
