Taking a hiatus...

I've decided to take a break from posting to this blog.  I'm not sure if anyone is even reading my posts, and I seem to have run out of gas and inspiration.  I'm making an entry on my calendar for September 1st make a status post to let you know whether I will resume posting.  In the meantime, I'm going to try to post more on Facebook where there seems to be a more active and consistent readership.

See you on September 1st ....

Off to Stinson Beach tomorrow

Today is Eileen's birthday.  Tomorrow we depart for four nights at the rental house, which is literally right on the beach.  It's the same place we rented last year for Eileen's birthday ... (Pictures below.) Can't wait to watch the whales pass by on their annual migration, as well as just relaxing and hanging out.  Back on Friday.

There are three units in this building:  A large unit on the ground floor with two upper units.  Look for the two windows on the upper right.  Those are the main windows of our unit where you can stand and see the whales pass by, or the people on the beach.  Last year I forgot my binoculars, which I am definitely not going to forget this time.

From the parking spaces in the rear.  Up those stairs to the front door to our unit.

In defense of grammar

While my previous post was interesting, I must admit that some of it was disheartening to me.  I'll admit it, I am an "old school" guy when it comes to the role grammar and punctuation should play in written content.  Thus it was a bit ironic that I should run across this blog entry by the author of a book about grammar.  His points are well-taken.
