Today is the day...

So it has been awhile, figured I should say something...Not much to say really other than, all of you who voted for change well check out this... "But that hasn't stopped him from throwing what amounts to at least a $100 million inauguration bash for supporters, many of whom devoted themselves to his campaign." Yeah that is the kind of change we can count on...Politicians gloating in their glory, spending tax payers money and calling it 'economic stimulus'....

Happy New What?

Wow, another year bytes the dust and we are off to a rapid start to this new odd year. 2009 should be an interesting year for me. It will be the year of the professional exams as I plan to take both of my professional engineering exams, a feat that I am not really looking forward to but a hurdle that I am looking forward to sailing over. It will be nice to add, or change, some letters at the end of my name this year so that will be good to have the official title to go along with all my hard work in past years. Outside the professional accomplishments, I am planning on spending some time away from the house and enjoying life a little more than I have in the past couple of years with the nose stuck between the pages of text books.

I would like to announce that I plan on blogging as much in 2009 as I did in 2008 but I am not sure if the busy schedule will allow such luxuries, but I will do my best to attempt such feats. Along with the grand visions of professional certification I am going to attempt to push my range of comfortable precision shooting out an additional 200 yards, perfect my ability to sound like a wounded rabbit, communicate with the howling creatures that hunt at night and enjoy large quantities of the fresh glacial air caused by global warming, all before socialism becomes the new order of the oval office. This is the year of the Annual Guy trip, so planning is underway for where, when and how long; check back in the late spring to see where we went and to enjoy the pictures of the trip.

I have not really made any New Years Resolutions for 2009, since my ability to maintain NYR only exists during even years. But I do have grand illusions of what I would like to accomplish in 2009 so hopefully that will happen and I will have the endurance required.

All in all, this odd year should make for an interesting year and should appear to be one of the shortest years of my life to date. Hope you all survived the ol' year and welcome to the New...
