It's a windy and chilly Northern Virginia day. Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind. Personally, I'm enjoying this weather.

Heartless bastards! I am sure there is a special place in Hell for this person and all of the others that do this.
 
He is only weeks old, and soon he will be ready to take his first journey into the sea. The fluffy white coat that once protected him from the cold has all but disappeared, his darker and sleeker body now visible against the white snow. Exposed and vulnerable, he lays helpless and looks up at the man with the rifle.
The Canadian seal hunting season has begun. Over the coming months, hundreds of thousands of seal pups will be brutally slaughtered. They are still only babies – and they are killed for one reason only: their pelts.
Join the international outcry for these beautiful animals, who are bashed, shot – and sometimes skinned alive – for the sake of money and some people’s warped idea of ‘fashion’. Head to www.AnimalsAus.org/Ow to take action today!

OMG! Ubuntu!
Windows, Mac, iOS, Android... All of them come pre-loaded with a calendar application right out the box. But Ubuntu? No, Ubuntu doesn't.

I still tend to use a pen-and-paper todo list for things I don't just memorize to begin with. I can't get in a habit of using digital calendars or organizers for whatever reason. Not even on my phone.

Story
Tagline
Linux user/developer, bike commuter, runner, Socialist/Green, Vegan, tree hugger, very Liberal Catholic.
Introduction

I'm a Freelance Web, Linux and Open Source Consultant. I believe that everyone should have the right to do what they want with their software and not have their hands tied by companies like Microsoft and Apple and their Closed Source, proprietary software.

I'm a bicycle commuter and runner, Ferris State University hockey fan, loud and proud Socialist, Vegan, very Liberal Catholic, animal lover, earth lover and container gardener wannabe. I'm also anti-guns and anti-war. More than once, I've been called a peace-loving, tree-hugging Liberal. I always thank them for the compliment even though I know it wasn't meant as one. 

"Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace." ~Albert Schweitzer

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker

"Compassion is the keen awareness of the interdependence of all things." ~Thomas Merton

"If you feel that hatred has overwhelmed you, remain silent. Say nothing until, by ceaseless prayer and self-recrimination, you have calmed your heart." ~St. Hilarion of Optina

"If you don't want your tax dollars to help the poor, then STOP saying that you want a country based on Christian values, because you don't!" ~Jimmy Carter

"The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world." ~Dr. P Farmer

Old Town Coffee Tea & Spice is exactly what my wife and I have been looking for since we moved to the DC Metro area almost two years ago. We love good coffee and the selection here is wonderful. Whole bean, many choices, very affordable and the staff is very helpful. It's located in Old Town, Alexandria, which is a very nice bonus since I'm always looking for excuses to go there. We will be going back again and again and telling all of our coffee drinking friends about this place.

4 months back, I was in the market for a new web host. I had tried many of the larger hosts but none of them really impressed me. I experienced many outages with no explanation as to why the outages even happened. I decided to start looking at some of the smaller companies hoping for a better experience. I moved my site to IQnection and I couldn't be happier. Great customer service and my sites run great. In the 4 months that I've been with them there has only been one outage and, as it turns out, the problem wasn't even with their equipment. Customers were updated regarding the issue via social media until the issue was resolved. That is exactly the kind of service that I was looking for. If you're in the market for a new web host, I would definitely give them a try. They are very affordable and offer some great plans.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. While there, we decided to try brunch at Tunnicliff's Tavern just across the street. Our visit didn't disappoint. Great food, excellent and friendly service, great atmosphere and some great beer on tap. The only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is that there weren't many choices for local beer. Add a few more local selections and there wouldn't be a reason to eat or drink at any other pub/tavern in the neighborhood. All in all, an excellent visit and we can't wait to drop in again.

Good place for car service. The only issue is that they have Fox News on the TV.

I love Irish Pubs (good Irish Pubs) and O'Connell's didn't disappoint. My wife and I are new to the area, having just moved here from Indianapolis and love finding new places where we can hang out and have a good beer. Located in Old Town Alexandria, this pub fits right in with the "old charm" of the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly, the decor is wonderful (dark woods everywhere - looks very Irish), the food is very good (but as a Vegan, I would like to see more options). My favorite, and only real option, is the hummus/veggie platter, which, is very good. For $8, you get enough to feed more than one person. They have a great beer selection on tap but I would like to see more local selections. At the time of our visit, there was just one local beer on tap. Also, it would be nice to have wireless connectivity available. This would be a great place to come for a beer early in the afternoon and get a bit of client work done. Overall, I highly recommend O'Connell's and I am absolutely positive that my wife and I will be back again and again. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the lack of Vegan food options and the lack of wireless connectivity.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. Regarding the food, I'm a Vegan and there really wasn't anything for me but my wife and kids found some great options. The shopping is the part of the visit that we enjoyed the most. We just moved to the area and we were looking for some local art to hang on the walls. We met some great local artists and purchased some great art. We are really looking forward to our next visit. The Eastern Market is definitely a gem in a great city!

Now that Indy is smoke-free, I will be visiting one of my favorite bars a lot more. And they support the local breweries. A huge plus in my book!
