Christmas 2003 gallery

I finally got time to complete another gallery update.  Having played with the new digital camera for the last six weeks or so, I think it's time to show you some of the pictures.  Keep in mind that I'm still learning about the camera (meaning I'm no professional photographer).  The new gallery, Christmas 2003, is a large update of The Kids.  All of these pictures were taken on Christmas Eve when The Kids were visited by Santa Claws.  There are a lot of new pictures in the gallery, so go ahead and take a gander.

Welcome message archive – January 6, 2004

Here’s the archive of the latest welcome message from the front page.

Welcome to my little corner of the Internet.  My name is Jason (duh, right?), and this is my experiment in self-expression.  I had no grandiose ideas when I started it and continue on in the spirit of ad hocism.

You can learn a little something about me and my life from what I divulge here.  It centers around my kids (the four cats who are very much in charge around here), my tattoos (those I have and those I intend to get), piercings (again those I have and those I intend to get), working out and trying to build a better body, my experiences, and exercising my free speech by discussing politics, local, national and world events, technology, science, national security, and a host of other things that I’m interested in.

Hopefully some of the things you’ll find here will entertain you.  If I’m lucky, you might find something here that will make you think. 

So take a look around, read a few things here and there, and feel free to let me know what you think.


I do not need acceptance from others
such cheap offerings are gratuitous at best
and unnecessary
without self-acceptance
that is all I truly need
with that, the rest is inconsequential
complimentary and complementary even
but not essential

[circa 1988]

It’s Checkuary

Happy New Year!  It's Checkuary — the month of the year where you tend to write the wrong year on everything.  It gets its name from the fact that most incorrect years are written on checks.  Believe me, that's the voice of experience talking.  Here's hoping that you enjoyed a safe New Year's celebration and enjoy a comparable 12 months to follow.
