  1. My 3 jobs of fencing.

    by , 02-09-2009 at 01:27 AM
    I've been thinking about my role in fencing recently. I have 3 basic roles I play, fencer, referee, and coach, but not necessarily in that order...

    In all 3 of them, there are days I love it, and days I hate it. Each of them have some clear and distinct advantages and disadvantages. However, its not like they are mutually exclusive. For example, if I want to pursue coaching, then improving my fencing right now would be the best thing to do.

    In my last post, Jason was ...

  2. Wheelchair Fencing is the Coolest

    What can I say, Chair fencing is so freaking cool. I am so lucky to have Scott for a coach. We worked about 2 hours today and he was showing me all kinds of things to adapt my standing style to my seated style. The apraxic moments are still there as my brain knows what it wants to do, it just canít send the signals to my arm and torso to do it.

    That of course is terribly frustrating. Scott and I were talking after the lesson and he said I know you, once you get home you will dissect ...

  3. Mazda3 Grand Touring car

    This is the car I purchased only mine is copper red.

    The car has many more features than I would normally have wanted in a car but there are few 2008s left on the lots and the bottom line is that I made an emotional decision.

    I'm a sucker for clearance sales.

    The car cost me approximately what I would have paid for a 2009 car without most of these options. ...

  4. More Nonsensical Ravings of a Lunitic Mind

    by , 02-06-2009 at 07:52 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    I get to fence tomorrow. My daughter changed her work schedule to later and so I wonít have to leave my wife alone with the twins during the day. I love them to pieces, but they require a lot of attention.

    I have done some garage work, but it was last weekend and then I caught the cold that has been going around and it settled deep in my chest the last couple of days. Of course I am prone to pneumonia now, so we have to watch it and see if anything triggers new seizures. If it does, ...

  5. New Car

    by , 02-06-2009 at 09:36 AM
    May God or whatever diety that guards over fools and car buyers protect me, for I am about to commit new car ownership.

    When I purchased my beloved 1997 Saturn SW2, I did so because I had a teenage daughter who needed to drive to school about 30 miles away every day. Two years earlier, we'd bought a used car for my son and paid more than the purchase price in repairs before selling it and starting again with another used car with which we had better luck. Given that my 8-year-old ...
