More On The American Idol Experience

Well, as I wrote before, we went to American Idol.

While the experience was interesting, I'm not sure we'll go again. My daughter's decision, not mine.

Judging by the immense talents that we saw, who did NOT make it through, it's essentially a crap shoot on whether or not you make it. As my girl said, it's all about their show, their product, and not about the best singers at all.

I think back on the talent we've seen on the show, vs the talent we saw in Pasadena, and yes, the girl is totally right.

I am so proud of her to figure this out at her young age.

So here's a few news articles and as soon as I find the clip that has my girl in it, I'll post that too.

Ah, and here we are!

I Have Been Neglecting My Blogging

Well, I have been kinda busy.

I started writing articles for and I've been having a LOT of fun with it.

Ever since my job eliminated one of my newsletters, it's just really been an exercise in creative frustration. That was the one that I got to really cut loose and tell people how to run their lives.

Sigh, yes, more budget cut stuff.

So what have I been doing?

Let's see. What have me and mine been doing?
  • Went to Oregon
  • Went to Pasadena for American Idol
  • Teaching a teen to drive
  • "Sacramento Has Talent" competition (Tommy T's on Tuesday nights!)
  • State Fair talent show auditions
  • Working on my shed project again
  • Still selling stuff on
  • Tried to get my bookshelves in the living room organized
  • Growing tomatoes and pumpkins mostly -- LOL, they're ALL volunteers, I didn't plant them, they just came up from last year's dropped fruits and the Halloween pumpkins
  • Working on the upcoming Stand Down
  • Just working and working

I'll try to do better on my blogging...
