It was a rough day.
The crab and shrimp cakes with bacon wrapped ass-pa-ra-gus, helped a little.

Getting better on my plating.

Is there a good reason not to sell a Canon AE-1 Program SLR camera?
(with Beston 25mm and 20-80mm lenses)

Are the 'real cameras with film' days officially dead?

The rumors are true!
We're ready to introduce a new solution to our line up of trusted and award winning Identity Management solutions. 

The rumors are not true! 
 No, you will not be 'forced' to upgrade UMRA.
No, it does not replace UMRA. (though they works seamlessly together) 

 I'm looking for Existing SSRPM and UMRA clients that want to be a part of our Pilot Program. Be the first to leverage IAM. (Yes, that does mean that I'm reducing the solution cost!)

Apple cart is upturned.

My Dad, never a paragon of good health or good health focused choices, is now going to have to face the big fear.  Last Thursday, he collapsed, but brushed it off.  Friday, he collapsed again, and Mom took him to the ER.  ER doc's initial diagnosis: Pancreatic Cancer.  
This was confirmed on Tuesday from a biopsy on Monday.  
Stage IV Metastasised.   
Six Months to live.  

I'm sharing this with this community as I need to at least talk about this at some level.

Currently, I haven't figured out how to handle this. I tend to be a bit stoic in general, and my lack of outward emotion has certainly been the subject of discussion when I'm not in earshot. 

I do have two observations at this point:
1. Life if too short.
2. Your output is largely determined by our input.

Hey, Michael, I heard your rant and didn't have time to respond at the time. But I feel for you, and certainly am glad you felt like you could get it off your chest here. Hope you're doing better.

Story

Human? Human? We'll see about that.
Introduction
I am/have been/will be a writer, cyclist, programmer, data storage specialist, thinker, fanatic, Girevik, accomplished sailor and gentleman.
I may not be fully human.

I'm observant and seem to think about things from a slightly skewed perspective, combined with a keen eye for the obscure, I'm often allowed a tactical advantage.

I identify strongly with the INTJ community. 

I have very few friends, though those that I call friends I trust completely.

I have found the most amazing woman on this planet and she's ALL MINE. 
As of May 25th, 2014, she is officially mine.  (Not that I'm possessive, or anything)

“I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I've been up linked and downloaded, I've been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! 
I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.

This easy to miss bar has become one our go to places for good food and fun. The decor is modern rustic, read that as rustic looking but clean and comfortable. Customer service is a big issue for me, and the team there always greets us when we come in, and says goodbye when we're done. The food and drink recommendations have all been spot on. Fish and chips - Winner! Free bacon, yes, free bacon with a drink order (on Tuesdays) Food - Great! Customer Service - Great! Atmosphere - Great! Other Patrons - Full range of people, with everyone having fun. Price - Great! Know you know why we keep coming back. (Ingress note - Stuck Junction is right at the heart of the mission.)

This shop is exactly what a bike shop should be. After buying a few items that we forgot at home (vacation trip) and heading back out, I started having issues with my bike (not related to the store - user error), so we limped back and explained the issue to them. The mechanic knew exactly what I was talking about and knew exactly how to fix it. I was so pleased with my first experience that I didn't even ask what the repair would cost. I knew that I'd be treated fairly. Would you do this at an auto mechanic?!? The repair was done perfectly, and they charged about 1/2 of what I would have expected.

Everything about this hotel is perfect. The rooms are well laid out, clean, and well decorated. The staff was gracious and wonderful to deal with. It's far enough from the core of Seaside to be relaxing, if that's what you choose, and close enough to walk when you want to hit the shops. We will be back.
