Its weird but I was just wrapping up an assignment here at work, one that I totally diagnosed, repaired and gave instruction to a user remotely. They could have been anywhere (really they are across the street). I used to work doing video teleconference and while I thought it was neat I never really realized how interesting that was. I was connecting people literally half way around the world just so they could talk. It kind of dawned on me just now when I was goofing off on Flickr. I noticed that I had comments on pictures. Pictures I just snag from the web and stuff there because I like them, and random webpages can be volatile storage to say the least. Pictures I have no idea where they came from sometimes. And the comments just as anonymous. Possibly from half way around the world. Maybe Ive even heard their voice as a tech or participant on some random teleconference. In that spirit I looked at one of the commentators Flickr pages, and found this pic. It reminds me of a photo I took or a photography class. I like it.

I spent last sunday at the local swap meet. Scouring the various small mexican grocers for tasty treats. There are many variety of spicy mexican candy but as Im allergic to Mango, and I dont really like watermelon these are a perfect fit. You can keep grubby american kids away by telling them they are corn flavor, like fritos. You can keep wives away because they are spicey and dont get good until around the middle. AND they are hella cheap. I no espeaka espanole so I dont know what Vero Elotes means, but I would guess Very Awesome.
