Years go by

| Posted on in life

I’m still a skeptic, liberal, songwriter, geek, farmer, musician, and auctioneer. I’m just a little older. I turned 28 on September 25. Thanks for the cake. I had a ton of cake on September 25. Purple Wave Auction started September 25, 2000, at Longhorns Saloon in Aggieville selling a sporting goods auction. I started working […]

Debate night

| Posted on in life, politics

I had a hell of a birthday yesterday. Thanks to everyone for the Facebook comments. We had a Wii party at our cabin last night until 2 a.m. Needless to say, I’ve had better days than today. We’re slowly gathering around the 56″ view into Ole Miss for tonight’s debate that nearly wasn’t. I’m glad […]

I posted the video and live blog of my trip to the fair on Wednesday over at the AuctioneerTech site for anyone who is interested, so if you haven’t seen it yet head on over and check it out. Here’s a nice, juicy morsel from our friends over at www.dreamnotoftoday.com that needs to be spread […]

It’s better than more entertaining than music, and in the doldrums of the day between Morning Edition and All Things Considered, it’s about the only thing without […]

New shows section

We had a great show at Bobby T’s on Friday. Thanks so much to everyone who tuned in to the broadcast. Thanks to Ty and Rob, our friends from San Francisco, who called in with credit cards to buy us rounds of drinks from several states away. Thus ends the three-day weekend of relaxation. Today […]

Twitter stalking

| Posted on in life, technology

So, in an effort to try to make Twitter yet even more useful, I added everyone in Manhattan to my “following” list. I found this link on one of their tweets. It’s a Photoshop thread and is quite good.

NAA forum Q&A

| Posted on in auctions, life, technology

I was playing around on the NAA forum, a great member benefit for auctioneers, and I realized that what I was writing was applicable to just about anyone, not just auctioneers. Here you are, for whatever it may be worth to you. I’ve been using Linux on the desktop for the last two years. It’s […]

Happy Darwin Year

| Posted on in life, politics, technology

Happy Darwin Year…150 years ago (on 1 July) the theory of Natural Selection, which has held through to this day with all its modifications and improvements as any good theory does, was first presented. http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2008/07/fire_the_starting_gun_the_darw.php Newsweek ran an article comparing Lincoln to Darwin recently, claiming that because both men were born on the same day, […]
