In case anyone ever wanted to know what a herniated disc looks like. This is an MRI image of my lower spine. The main section of cartilage, between L5 and S1 [with the arrow pointing to it] is seriously herniated and is pushing against the nerves which go down into my right leg, which is […]

The Power of Innocence.

1 April, 2012 (23:12) | Blog, Personal | By: ender

It’s a fair bet that most parents have experienced seemingly innocuous statements which, when spoken by an innocent child, attain a cosmic truth and beauty that no other utterance can possibly match.

Sunset Storm

El Morro is a castle/fortress in Old San Juan. It’s pretty impressive as it’s been built out from its beginnings in the mid-1500s through WWII.

Here’s some pictures from our trip to El Yunque, the only rainforst in the US National Forest system. In my defense on some of the pictures, it’s really tough getting a good picture where the foreground is green, the background is green and the light filtering in from the canopy is green. :) It really […]

New House – Before we fixed anything

Long overdue, here’s some pictures of the new house, before we did any fixes. Believe it or not, the pool in these shots was cleaner than it originally was. :)
