A Minor Thing

This is a simple little ditty that I’ve come up with recently. It sounds very “Pink Floyd” to me. Hopefully it will be incorporated into a longer song sometime.

Javascript Gunner

Welcome to the Javascript Gunner page. This little script that I wrote is an example of the kind of thing that can be done with the javascript <canvas> tag and a little imagination. Why should your drawings be confined to the <canvas> tag when the <canvas> tags themselves can be moved around the page?

Salad Chefs

Yesterday, like a good house husband, I was placing the food on the table just as Marga was arriving home, when I had a “I gotta take a picture of this” moment. The light coming in the window and the vibrancy of the colors in the salad made our little chefs come alive.

It’s lovely and sunny today, but the wind makes it hard to be outside. There is sand in the air, from construction sites and because, well, that’s what the dirt is here, that hits hard to the face.

Fire Near Treto!

May 10, 2007 By: erik Category: Colindres, News, Photos

Yesterday was a beautiful, warm, sunny day. As I was doing some errands in town, I noticed that there was a huge cloud of smoke filling the sky. I am the number one source, worldwide, for news about Colindres in English. With this fame, comes responsibility. So I immediately stopped what I was doing and headed fearlessly towards the fire.
