11:11 coincidences

This post may be a little too new-agey or “out there” for most of you, in fact it’s even a little too new-age for me too. But I’ve been having some interesting coincidences in my life happen recently that I can’t ignore. They are related to the 11:11 phenomenon. Before you write me off as someone who’s losing his mind, let me also say that I am not an overly spiritual person, nor am I into metaphysics or anything like that.

According to Wikipedia:

Numerologists believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear more often than chance or coincidence. This belief is related to the concept of synchronicity. Other authors believe it is an auspicious sign, and others that it signals a spirit presence.

I have always heard of coincidences with numbers, and have had them happen before in […]

Take the train from Casablanca going south …

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

I came across this video today. Brings back memories for when I was planning my Spain and Morocco trip. I had really wanted to ride on the Marrakesh Express, but sadly though I made it into Morocco, didn’t make it down to Marrakesh. Oh well, next time. Until then, enjoy a live video of Crosby and Nash rockin’ it, well rockin’ it 70s style.

The birds ate my jalapenos … I think

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

I’ve had strawberries growing in my garden for a few months, but unfortunately have only been able to eat a few because they seem to disappear from the plant the day they reach optimal ripeness. I’ve just chalked it up to the birds or the ants, though I did catch my cat lurking in the garden too. And I’d be surprised if a colony of ants could make a strawberry disappear, but who knows?

But the other morning I had quite a surprise. Every single jalapeno on my jalapeno plant had disappeared. There were probably 10 or more that were an inch or two long last time I looked. This was definitely not the work of ants, nor was it due to the cat or dogs. Is it possible that the birds at all of them?

I did do a google search and saw […]

Being too busy and how to unwind in 24 hours

Life moves too fast

Sometimes life just gets too busy. Work, eat, bills, sleep, exercise, relax (for a moment) work, run errands. It just seems to go on and on. Even for someone like me who tries to keep their life simple, it doesn’t always work. When I am home I seem to keep myself too busy, and fall behind on all the things I want to do. Making an hour to just sit with a book never seems to happen, no matter how little is on my plate.

Quite honestly, as my girlfriend has correctly pointed out to me, I think a lot of my time disappears into the Internets. Keeping up with my RSS feeds, following Tweeters, checking the news, the weather, brainstorming ideas for my website, following links that follow links… You get […]

Interesting – Most Expensive Keywords

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

In typical internet fashion, I found one thing and followed a link, then followed another, then another, which somehow landed me a million miles away from where I started.

It all began when I finally decided to sign up for twitter. There are a select few bloggers who I follow regularly, so I decided I may as well follow their twitter too. I think they all use it properly and will not overwhelm me… So anyway, I’m reading Timothy Ferriss‘ latest Tweets and see one where he posted a list of the most expensive keywords. I have to say, while on the one hand I am quite surprised, on the other I am not shocked at all. I had figured the most expensive would be travel related or vacation related. But as it turns out some of the most expensive keywords are related […]
