Another year another blog.
This year my son Ian wanted an HO-Scale Model Train.
Can't just get him a train-set and be over with it.
Got to go overboard.

Voting for the first time

Aug 23, 2010.

Primary elections in Florida. My first time voting in my adopted country. Yes I have voted before in my native country, but this is different. We are electing candidates to local, state and national offices. What a difference. No more picking someone to be the next dictator for the next five years. Somehow the process seems more close to home. When I have sat down on a metting with am certain official mow running for her party's nomination, it feels more close to home. Even the dog catcher is an elected position in some jurisdictions. Democracy is not the right to elect a president but the right to elect members of the government. Local and national. From the local school board member to the senator.

Enjoying every day

Taking things one day at a time. Trying to enjoy what I do best and try to cope with what I don't do that well.

Family hanging on. Son growing up everyday. Wife busy with her work and raising our son. Me working uncountable hours trying to keep my job as stable as the current "economic situation" allows.

Sad again...

Last night we got terrible news from Peru. My brand new nephew was born with a serious condition. The little guy was not given much chance to live. Only a few hours the doctors said. He even got baptized right there at the hospital. People we talking of funeral arrangements.

But during the night the little guy put on a fight. Limbs started moving. Doctors are now about to perform surgery on this 1 day-old baby.

In the end it will be what God decides.

How sad though. Brings back memories of the two babies my wife and I had to say goodbye without a chance to hold them ever. At least this kid gave that satisfaction to his parents. And he is putting on a fight.

...And he is being given a chance...

...God bless him, his parents and the medical staff...

We pulling for you little guy!
