Website Gallery Updates


Well, I've been able to get some of the photo galleries uploaded on the main website.  Since there's so many pics, it'll take a bit to get them all posted.  In the meantime, thanks for your patience... and I hope you enjoy seeing a bit of some of the beautiful places here in Asia.


Major Changes and a New Website


Well, it's been a long time in coming...

While I was traveling through Vietnam this summer, I got a notification that my domain name for was expiring.  I was trying to get things fixed... but when you're on the road for a month at a time, sometimes that's easier said than done.

When I got back to Seoul, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the blog.  I'd become a bit frustrated, since there was so much I wanted to post-- but much of it was in the way of pictures, etc. that I just wasn't able to do well here.  So, I just let things sit in limbo for way too long while trying to figure out the best solution.

Finally, the decision was made to build a full website... not just run the blog.  The blog will continue here, with (hopefully) more frequent posts than before, but now I'll be able to upload full photo-galleries of the various sights/trips, as well as post helpful links/info.

If you've been following the blog, you can click "home" on the toolbar above to go directly to the new site as well.

Hope you guys enjoy.


Teacher's Day


Here in Korea, May 15 (yesterday) is Teacher's Day.  This is DEFINITELY a holiday that should be picked up back in the United States.

The students bring gifts for their teachers.  I was given a virtual garden of flowers:

I also received cards, candy, some really nice men's facial lotion/aftershave/deodorant from Chanel and Kiehl's, and 100,000KW (about $90) from the PTA, but the gift that really shocked me was... an engraved pen from Mont Blanc:

If you're not familiar with Mont Blanc.... well, the metal on the pen is platinum and that's a sapphire on the clip.
