All Good Things Must Come To An End

posted by John Blanco @ 12:10 PM


After 5 years, today is the last day of this blog. It's been great fun. I've blogged about chess tournaments, murder, Cedric's birth, family tragedy, unreal democracy, Sebastian's birth, and a whole lotta political stuff. I've had fun on every post.

I'm ending it today because, frankly, if you want to keep tabs on what I'm up to, my Facebook account is the best way to find out. It's faster, easier, and I get to keep up with my friends at the same time.

But I'm not done with blogging...

Today, I will be replacing my technology blog with a better one, and will be keeping the new one more active with articles, tips, and other posts. It will be focused on the newly-dubbed iFAMP platform: iPhone, Flex, Apache, MySQL, PHP. :-)

Hope you enjoy...but, for now...happy trails! Miss you, bloggy!

Guns and Idiots

My lord the idiocy of some of these people. The sheer bloodlust to fire their gun without any regard for common sense.

INTER SPRINGS, Fla. - A man who thought there was an intruder in his house shot and killed his fiancee the day before they were to be married, police said Friday.

"Right now everything points to a tragic accident," Police Chief Kevin Brunelle told The Associated Press, adding investigators were awaiting forensic results.

John Tabutt, 62, told investigators he got his gun when he thought he heard an intruder, then fired at a figure in the hallway, according to Brunelle. It was Tabutt's live-in fiancee, 62-year-old Nancy Dinsmore, who family members say he was going to marry Saturday. Tabutt told authorities he thought she was next to him in bed the whole time.
