Work in Progress

I’ve been working on a couple of things website-related lately.

First off, I’ve realized I’ve long neglected the License Plate section of Kansas Highways. I’ve updated the pages to reflect the current website layout.

The layout itself has been tweaked a little. For low-resolution screens (read, smartphones) the sidebar normally on the right-hand side of the screen is instead at the bottom of the page.

I’ve also been working on a more creative side. Over the past several years I’ve written a series of Star Trek themed fan-fiction stories. The creative juices for those stories have waned; however, I’ve been, in the past few weeks, found my mojo in the form of fan-fiction stories based on the current TV series NCIS. I’ve finished one story, and am well underway on a second. They can be found on My user page at fanfiction.net. At some point, I will also publish them here on my site.

Let’s just say I had my reasons for crossing the floor to the Democrats.

Running Behind….

The bad news… I haven’t made a new post to this blog in a while.

The good news… I’ve at least found something to do (and get paid for it). It’s a contract job involving a computer and printer deployment for various offices in Northeast Kansas and Northwest Missouri.

Those trips have also netted me some road trip opportunities.

Somehow, I got some road and train pictures

Being unemployed and with a dying car means I don’t get out as much. However, I still volunteer at the Amtrak Depot, and the Union Pacific Steam train made an appearance in the area. I also attend the Job Club events in KC (as well as the occasional job interview.) Here’s what I got for March.

A major talk show host got caught up in the debate over contraceptive coverage. Here is my somewhat whimsical thoughts on the matter.

New Photos and video

Last Saturday, I made a trip into KC to help promote the upcoming show of the Lawrence Model Railroad Club, as well as the ribbon-cutting for the Platform at the Amtrak Station in Lawrence. Meanwhile, I got some shots of some road signs of interest, particularly the re-routing of US 169 in Johnson County.
