13 years

Today is my 13 year anniversary at the company where I work. It sounds like a lot, but I know people who’ve been here a lot longer than I have. In fact, I know several people who’ve worked here over 30 years and a handful that have worked here over 40 years! These days, it […]

62nd anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima

Today, August 6, marks the 62nd anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. I have read 3 books on the history of the atomic bomb, those involved in building it, and those involved in trying to prevent its proliferation thereafter. It gives me a bit of hope that in the 62 years […]

5 years in the Washington area

Today, August 1, 2007, marks the 5-year anniversary of my time in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. In some ways, the time has zoomed by. Nevertheless, though I arrived in the D.C. area a few days before August 1, 2002, it was not until August 1 that I had my first official day of work […]

A renewal of vows

Posted at about 5:30 PM local time, on July 9 Mom and Dad had their vow-renewal ceremony this afternoon before dinner. We all got dressed up and then met outside the chapel at 5:30 PM. Jen and Jason had just finished up their couple’s massage and they had to rush to get dressed, but they […]

Graduation donation

I graduated from University of California, Riverside 13 years ago today. I have only the vaguest memories of my graduation ceremony, but I do remember how hot it was. (In fact, the graduation scene at the opening of my soon-to-be-appearing story “When I Kissed the Learned Astronomer” comes from memories of my own graduation.) A […]


It’s the 63rd anniversary of D-Day today. It is also Jon and Hollie’s 3rd wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary, guys!

Happy 11th anniversary Rich and Tricia!

Rich and Tricia (dear friends from college) celebrate their 11th wedding anniversary today. I was Rich’s best man in their wedding (the second time I’d performed that duty) and going back to my diary entry from 11 years ago today, it is one the longest entries that I’ve got, taking up nearly 4 pages of […]


Isaac Asimov died on April 6, 1992, which was fifteen years ago today. Fifteen years! It seems like an impossibly long time, especially when I am deep into his autobiography (he is only 13 years old at this point) which reads as if he is talking to me. The anniversary of Isaac Asimov’s death is […]

Happy Anniversary, Jen and Jason

Today is jen_ashlock and Jason’s one year wedding anniversary. They got married at the Southcoast Winery in Temecula, California, and it was a great wedding. I can’t believe a year has already gone by. Anyway, I just wanted to wish Jen and Jason a very happy anniversary.
