Thanksgiving typical/atypical

11.30.2008 by Mark Forman

  I know many of you have just recently celebrated Thanksgiving. Probably got mega-dose of tryptophan off of turkey, stuffing, yams, pie, etc. We rocked it a little bit different here. We don't have oven at home like most Taiwanese houses. What you say? Think about it-how many of your favorite Chinese food dishes use […]


Good hybrid of art and technology

Currently I'm sitting here with my trusted Xacti out of commission and traveling in it's home country of Japan-local company I deal with sent it back for some warranty work.

Hard to believe…

Well here I sit and I'm still a little startled. Barack Hussein Obama, son of an African black man and white American mother is the 44th President-elect of the USA. I became enamored of Obama early in the primaries when I got to hear him and see him and his family. I might actually be even more […]

  Yesterday I took my family into town for some shopping. We decided to get a little fresh air and exercise in the Taichung Ampitheater park. This little guy looked like he was having some fun and caught my eye.   A worker on the park construction project.   Kevin and Anne about to cross the bridge.   […]
