You can go home again

This Holiday Season, I have been doing as many do, reflecting on my year and the ups and downs. I dwell on what went right, and what went wrong. I know it's always good to focus on the positive, but we really cannot help but to have some negative thoughts float through. It is only natural, I believe.

While thinking of the past year, I also have been thinking of my life and where I have come from to make me what I am today (as flawed as I may be). Read more about You can go home again

The Star Wars saga continues...

I can remember somewhat vividly, the time I saw the original Star Wars. It was the Summer of 1977 and my parents had taken me to a mall in Norfolk, Va. about an hour East of Franklin, Va., my hometown. I was around 8 or nine, and eager to see this movie, I had heard so much about. The line to see the showing was about a mile long (at least it seemed that way), and I the anticipation to finally see "Star Wars" was palpable for me.

Giving Thanks

As November approaches, a lot of people stop and reflect on their busy year to give thanks regarding their blessings. Some do this openly in social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google plus, etc., and others take the more personal reflective approach and maybe give thanks in prayer or meditation. Some people. including myself, aren't reflective enough, and only openly give thanks during the Thanksgiving Holiday. Read more about Giving Thanks

College Football Season

I love this time of year (Autumn). The days are cooler, nights are much cooler and there is a crispness in the air. A lot of people are into various different pro sports this time of the year including the NFL and post season major league baseball. I personally am a bigger fan of college football. I like the big stadiums, the crowds, the intense rivalries, the pageantry that is the sport played (mostly) on Saturday's. Read more about College Football Season

Pairing Wine with Food

Red Wine

I'm no wine expert by any stretch. I do enjoy a glass every now and then however, and definitely think wine pairs better with food than beer. I am more appreciative of red wine, however in the warmer months a nice light white wine such as a chardonnay, pino grigio and riesling.

When pairing wine with foods, I tend to like a nice Cabernet Sauvignon with steak and pino grigio with seafood. Read more about Pairing Wine with Food

bringing in JSON data via JQuery

I wanted to learn more about JSON formatting and JSON interacting with JQuery. It's actually quite easy once you get the hang of it. I found JSON Lint to be quite handy in debugging the JSON code.

Essential the data being stored in JSON is the President's photo, first name, last name, month, day, and year of inauguration. And I am using the JQuery.getJSON() method which loads the JSON encoded data from the server using a GET HTTP request. Read more about bringing in JSON data via JQuery
