One of My Stores Burned Down Tonight
I oversee twelve stores. Tonight I got a call from one of my managers:
“My store is on fire.”
Didn’t think it would affect me … but hours later, it has.
No one was hurt, but as I sit here and type … the smell on my clothes is really beginning to bother me. I can’t get the taste out of my mouth, either. I walked the store with the fire chief, and I can’t seem to get the images out of my mind.

9/11: Still Haunting and Shocking
I remember the morning. We all do. It was a very sad day across America.
This is a very raw video … worth a watch.
It’s Them, Not Us. Seriously.
I read this in the LA Times, and thought: Are you kidding me? Control your country, Man!

“I Must Warn Others”
“Are you going to post about this?” Tina said tonight, as I ran out to the patio to snap the above pic.
“Yes, Dammit.” I said. “I must warn others.” I continued to eat ice. I was on my 5th or 6th mouth-full.
Earlier, Tina kicked off the harvest season (Labor Day is today … the last day of Summer) by snipping off a few of the orange peppers from our plant. Curiously, I agreed to cut one open and have a taste. I sliced off the stem and simply put the tip of my tongue on the pepper’s flesh.
What started as a slight sting slowly grew into agony.
Habanero chili peppers are rated 100,000–350,000 on the Scoville scale. Conservatively, that’s about 40 times hotter than a Jalapeño. I didn’t know that when I bought a baby plant at a local nursery this past spring.
An hour later … Awesome! It’s really neat to have a plant growing on our patio with such amazing power. I look forward to finding some applications for this powerful pepper …
But, you’ve been warned.

This Guy Likes Pi. I Respect his Tenacity.
A home-built $17,790 computer with an Electrical Bill of $237/month to calculate Pi to Five Trillion digits, and to suffer in the process by his daughter’s tripping of a circuit breaker when she turned a hair dryer on …
Shigeru Kondo … you rock, sir.

Gavin’s Latest Take-Away from School, Apparently
Gavin has been in kindergarten for 2 weeks now, and I’ve noticed him spitting – a new habit I’m sure he acquired from some punk at school.
This morning he spat in our foyer.
I grabbed him and put his face in it. Sorry – but kid’s got to learn. As he cried with the evidence dripping down his face, I demanded he clean it up off of the tile.
He won’t be spitting again.
