Solarized Buffalo Blood DonorOne of these days this middle-aged company executive, who spent nearly all of his childhood growing up rural, his college years focused on a wide-bandwidth technical education and most of his adult life trying to get back to his roots, will outfit this ABOUT page with something that tells a story that is more than just a run-on sentence with sparse punctuation but in the meantime you’ll have to put up with this.

I have lived in both Brazil and California, been to 10 different countries and 45 states but still find Western New York my home. I have never stopped learning.

My wife and I are now official empty nesters.

    I was wondering if I could post your image (asimo1.jpg) from a few posts ago. I’m currently a student at University Of California, Merced, and is interested in posting that image for my project in computers concerning the advancement of technolgy. If so, the image would be given credit towards your site and no copyright violations would be neccessary. Thank You!

    I really like your blog. I like your comments. I live in Florida, but my wife is from Watertown, NY. We’ve been down here for 22 years. I’ll stop by from time to time to see what you have to say. So far you plenty of common sense.


  3. You are a wise man Paul, I wish you great success and happiness. It is my hope that you can offset the technocratic assault on individual liberty and the right of privacy by creating a user-friendly GUI O/S that rivals Windows. Since the NSA has created backdoors to access their program, I do not feel safe writing my thoughts on the computer. I know you have access to other great minds who can generate the intellectual and financial capital to spearhead this project. Please keep me advised and I will do all I can to further your mission.

    We’ve added your blog to the Buffalo page for wikimetro.org and we are getting good traffic there, so we thought to tell you.

    I saw your comment on another website regarding your interest
    in a large satellite dish.

    The large dishes make great solar collectors for the do-it-yourself alternative energy hobbyist. I’ve been looking for one for a few months now (and would have taken yours off your hands, had I known about it).

    I have a large one. Are you still interested?

    I saw your post on Zimbabwe – it’s great to see that situation getting coverage in the blogosphere.

    Last summer Nelson Mandela brought a group of really dedicated individuals together – ex heads of state and Nobel laureates – to work on solving global issues. His hope for the new group, The Elders, is for them to “speak freely and boldly, working both publicly and behind the scenes on whatever actions need to be taken”. They’re working on the crisis in Zimbabwe now, and they want your help.

    There are so many issues in dire need of attention right now, but human rights ties them all together. The Elders launched the Every Human Has Rights campaign to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and celebrate human rights as that common thread that weaves our struggles and our victories together.

    We’re asking the blogosphere to take part. Would you be willing to add a link from your page to the Every Human Has Rights website? We also have badges and flash widgets so bloggers can show support for the campaign.

    We’re trying to get as many people as possible to sign a personal pledge to uphold the principles of the Universal Declaration. We have action partners to help people get more involved. We have tools so people can bring the ‘rights perspective’ to their own organization’s events. We’re doing everything we can to bring people together to stand up for human rights.

    We need bloggers. We need you. Please join our effort.

    All the best,

    Carly Scott
    Every Human Has Rights,
    campaign team

    Hi Paul,

    I would like to know if you could tell me name and artist of the picture about introspection you posted? Or maybe just where you got it from.

    I am a freelancing journalist from Germany and would like to use the picture for a book.
