Every Day a Miracle

Took a motorbike to market for some serious shopping. (Leaving in 2 days). Things for the Land - 4 metres of the traditional black and white check to wrap one of the sacred trees.  Small wooden shrine to attach to a tree for offerings.  The dainty wind chimes which are harder and harder to find, made of thin bamboo, golden snail shells with tiny nails inside.  They make a thin papery sound.  Take them in when the gales blow.

Spices, a long black pepper which is supposedly hotter than…

PositiveLogic Please Take Note

I want to extend a public apology to PositiveLogic. I noticed a comment by him that he had not received

a tracking number for his vote. I don't know how this could have happened other than his vote was not counted. I, Jay, specifically remember him not having a vote, because I went through the list several times to take note of remaining holdouts, and took note PositiveLogic's status.If he did indeed press the send button, his ballot may have been deleted. I did…

Britain's Marie Antoinette moment?

At least according to Polly Toynbee, columnist for The Guardian. I came across her name as I just read her essay about the Royal Wedding (in large parts identical with her english post below) for a German newspaper.

Night Market in Gianyar

The plan, go with Dayu, Ping's mom, Jero Nesa, his sister in law . . . and her 2 daughters.  Ping picked me up at 7 on his motor bike and we went to their place in Teges.  We piled into the car, the beautiful 'Bu in front, I and the 2 daughters in the middle, Dayu and . . . in the back.  They chatted most of the way, . . . very vivacious, Dayu's voice deep, slow laughter.  The rest of us were quiet.

Situt styed behind, Ngurah was not around.

Shortly after we got to Gianyar…

The Vote and The VC are History!


I did not mean to slight the winners (Congrats to all) but the focus was more on participation in this fine mess.

I forgot one important thing. I need to mention and thank Daniel for all the help and support he has freely given. He valso blazed the trail of using some creative video to lighten the mood. Daniel, I'll run with you for VC anytime!… Continue

Saying Goodbye to My Mancave

September 2010 was a beautiful time. After a long summer of apartment and suite hunting I'd found a suitable cave for me and a college mate. I arrived first to greet the cobwebs, spiders, and various other nasties that had stowed themselves away in my cave since the showing. Kleenex in hand I fought the good fight and cleared out a space for the most important things in life: my laptop. my chair, and the fridge.


And so began 2nd year. A decadent and depraved journey into…

embeded videos to the video page

Usually when this happens the person is reached by the community first and shunned into submission.

When you embed a video to your account it needs to be original content and not from someone else.

I deal with this type of situation all the time and it doesn't matter who makes the video...if it isn't your content, you can not put it on the video page.

 In the very least, you are not being considerate to your fellow members who create original…

Jaded in Bali

You're in your room on Samuan Tiga Jalan - just got home - drained.  Lie down - drift - melting - then become aware of a low pulsing sound.  Your heart?  your blood?  it gradually becomes a tone, stronger, now interspersed with metallic rhythm - closer - there is a sound like water running - gurgling - becomes a melody - another procession marching by my front door.  Probably brilliant women sailing beneath giant offerings.  Do you stir ?  No.

Now sitting on the edge of the bed,…
