366 Photos Project - Day 2
At sunset, a group of us walked south along the Pacific Beach (San Diego) boardwalk. I spotted this octopus mosaic next to the lifeguard station. It's fantastic to see public works of art when it's not expected.
Here's a Google Maps link to the location. You can use Street View to see the mosaic, lifeguard station and the beach.

REBOOT
I apologize for the long absence. Between moving to a new home and starting a new job, I had many things to juggle. In addition, the friend notifications during NaNoWriMo overwhelmed me. Google+ got dropped. In this new year, however, I look forward to taking another start with Google+ ... reconnecting with G+ friends and making new ones.

My new year's resolutions are as follows:
1. Take a photo each day. The photo below represents that I'm starting up anew.
2. Record a vlog each week in American Sign Language.
3. Reconnect with people on- and offline.

Also taking any suggestions from folks out there. Thoughts? If so or if not, either way I look forward this new year with you all!

After three weeks of losing in the Monday Night Football tiebreaker, I just won the football pool. My gay card might be suspended, but I'm happy!

"Football's Other Team"
ESPN's Ivan Maisel has an excellent behind-the-scenes article and video of a college football officiating team at work. He followed them as they arrived into town, their preparations, during the game, and post-game reviews. Get to know some of the guys we yell at every autumn weekend!

"Dare" - Stan Bush, original Tranformers soundtrack

Everyone has a song or two that can help get them going in the morning. For me, it's "Dare" from the 80's animated film Transformers: The Movie. Inspiring lyrics, rock feel ... it's very motivating!

Good morning, folks! Hopefully a happy Monday is ahead for all. I'm helping train two new employees today ... that might be interesting. What's on your agenda today?

52 Vlogs Project - Week 1
Part of my new year resolutions is to start vlogging again. What follows is the first entry into my weekly ASL video journal. One thing that helps is my new laptop which has a webcam. Recording now takes many less steps than using a Flip camera. As always, comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome.

Folks continue finding interesting uses for Google+ Hangouts. Here's another one!
John Herman originally shared:
 
Google+ Hangout for Playwrights

Last night I used Google+ Hangouts with Extras to conduct a play writing workshop for two writers who will be submitting their work to my multi-media charity Apocalyptic Theatre Anthology and companion stage show. Using Google+ enabled the writers who were in Los Angeles and Toronto respectively to connect and share thoughts and criticisms. A fourth reader (from New England) also offered opinions on the plays. We read and annotated the work using the Google Doc integration feature. It was pretty awesome.

More details on the anthology: http://www.johnherman.org/2011/05/30/call-for-writers-apocalyptic-theatre

Exemplary Customer Service
I challenge anyone to show a better example of customer/client/guest service than the exchange between this guest and the hotel.

I took this photo a few weeks ago at Balboa Park (San Diego, CA) but forgot to upload it. This was taken the same day as the photo of the African warrior outside the Botanical Garden. If I recall correctly, it's the largest oak tree in the country. That's right: this photo is of one tree. For folks in San Diego, you can visit it right outside the Museum of Natural History. We're still cutting down so many trees ... it's nice to see one preserved for folks to enjoy.

Introduction
Don't be shy, say hello!  Feel free to send a message via Google+ or Google Huddle/Messenger.  

If I Circled you, I probably came across your profile because you have a related interest, via the mobile app's Nearby stream, or I met you on Twitter.  

By day, I work for a real estate company as an Accounts Payable clerk.  By night, I'm training to become an interpreter for the Deaf.  All the time, I'm a Texan residing in San Diego area with the man of my life and our dog and cat.  

I volunteer at:
  • Deaf Community Services of San Diego on most Friday afternoons.
  • MissionGathering Christian Church on many Sunday mornings.
  • in my precinct as a precinct inspector for the San Diego County Registrar of Voters on election days.  

I love reading and watching the news.  I also enjoy various types of games like:
  • board games (like Parcheesi and Chinese Checkers),
  • video games (XBox 360 and Nintendo3DS),
  • card games (like Uno and Munchkin),
  • role-playing games (like Rift or Dragonlance).

Other enjoyments include looking at photography, reality TV shows, and sports. I'll add more later as I think of it!
