Spring Flowers

Yesterday I went out with Tommy and Thomas and worked on my first boundary survey. We were at Sunset Road in Mount Juliet. We got about two thirds of the way around the 96 acres. The terain was up and down steep hills and across fields. In one field was a small sink hole about 15 feet deep. The... Sign in to see full entry.

False Spring Still Feels Good

What a beautiful spring day this has been…78 and sunny. It’s about two weeks early to even have an occasional day like this but warm weather is pleasant none the less. It did start out cool however. Chris and I spent the day on Mires Road checking pins and setting new ones for a new monstrosity of... Sign in to see full entry.

Why I Like My Job

Last Wednesday was a beautiful day in middle Tennessee, sunny and seventy. Now that the highs have dropped back down into the 40’s its good to remember such days.

As I Lay Dying - A Review

Yesterday with a post Super Bowl aching head I finished off the last thirty-five pages of William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying. I hadn't read a Faulkner book since Light In August back in '94.

When Reading Is Difficult Aim Higher

I've had a hard time reading lately. My mind races a thousand miles an hour until I lay down in bed and open a book then my eyes lids become sandbags and sleep the curtain. Brought down with an unflattering flourish of drool. I've read: - about half of Henry Miller's The Air Conditioned Nightmare -... Sign in to see full entry.

Why Commercial Radio Friendly Country Sux

Living in Nashville, having done the songwriter/open mic/networking circuit I've listened to a lot of aspiting songwriters who wanted to hear their song on the radio.
