Deja Vu…

It seems like yesterday,

San Diego on Fire

On October 25th, 2003 a small brush fire near Ramona began its devastating journey that within a week, and in combination with two other major fires in the County at the same time, would become the largest in California history – known as F i r e s t o r m 2003.

Recently, fires started again in San Diego. Today, the fires still burn and cloud the sky with ash. The night sky bears a distant brooding gloom that silences the city. I can’t help but wonder how long it’ll last.

A friend from Long Beach called me, to ask if Pooh and I were ok. Fortunately, our home is far from the fires, but there are fires to the north, the east, and to the south. One can’t help but feel trapped…

Wha?!


Wtf?! I just noticed my Plu Blogs icon to the left of my page displayed my ranking as #5 in TopBlogs listing. (O.o) I just signed up on Plublogs just a couple days ago…and I was ranked 72 last time I checked. Awesome! :) So much good news…I feel like I’m on top of the world! This calls for a couple glasses of wine. Cheers!

I’m Ready For My Closeup!

I’ve finally decided to upgrade my Account to Pro. I reached my max of 200 long ago and so, for a while, older images became unavailable — and each time I would upload images, more and more of my precious memories would disappear! There are a whole bunch that are now available for public view since I’ve upgraded to Pro. I still have a lot of organizing now that I can create more than three sets, but I am happy that I am now able to access ALL of my images instead of just 200 at a time. I think there are more features in addition to a Pro account, but I haven’t looked into the details yet.

(BTW, the email address on the images of this post is an old email address that I no longer check, just incase anyone was going to send a message…I won’t respond if you do :)

So check out my Flickr page if you’re ever bored :) …and yes…you can find an archive of “you know what” in there as well. However, the big “treats” are only available to flickr members who I’ve added as a friend.

Wow…thanks guys!

Manilagayguy.com recently mentioned me and my blog in one of their posts. I’ve been a reader (more like avid image viewer) of the blog for quite some time now, so to be mentioned in their blog had me smiling, blushing, excited, and quite flattered. Thanks a lot for the mention manilagayguy.com!

I also saw another post in a blog called Homo Superior. It brought a smile to my face and I was very happy that he had nice things to say about my blog. And yes…I know the watermark censoring the “nice bits” is lame…but maybe we’ll be seeing less of that in future posts. Anyway, thank you for the honorable mention Homo Superior!

Anyway, I noticed that my “numbers” have increased dramatically the past couple of days thanks to several blogs that have mentioned me :) I was very surprised to have come home from work yesterday and see that more than 1,000 people viewed my blog since the night prior. Then today I come home from work to see that more than 2,000 visited since last night. Of course, I don’t want to be counting…(pshhh yeah right…wuhoo!!!…high numbers alright!!!! j/k) but I was definitely surprised by the dramatic increase in visitors. With my rambling set aside, thanks for stopping by and reading my random life.

Super Bowl XLI Sunday!

This sunday the Colts faceoff with the Bears. Who will take it? My co-workers are all Bears fans. Prince is doing the half-time show? Fun!
I am excited to see the many hillarious Superbowl commercials. They’re my favorite thing about the Superbowl! High budget commercials with high profile celebrity appearances!

Men Of Color Blog & Some Good News!

I was very happy when I received an email a couple days ago from the creator of MOC Blog and his interest in my blog. MOC is a very hot and popular blog that Pooh and I have known about for quite some time now, and it was great to hear from him. The three of us met for a friendly cup of coffee at a great place called Urban Grind on Park Blvd in Hillcrest. Urban Grind had a nice face-lift and a fresh new look since the last time Pooh and I were there. He was really nice and we had a great time; my chai latte was yummy also! He wanted to meet with me to invite me as a guest blogger for his Men of Color Blog and also to discuss a couple of other things. I am very excited and feel that it is a great opportunity! I have only been blogging for a short time but I really enjoy posting and writing. I will definitely do my best to entertain, please, and not disappoint my readers as well as MOC’s. I would also like to thank MOC blog for mentioning me in his blog. I was so happy when I was reading up on my favorite blogs and I saw my blog mentioned in MOC. :) Definitely Good News! I’ll post more updates on this subject soon.

Look….

My blog will be undergoing several upgrades and face-lifts as time progresses. Any changes will be posted in the “Updates” label. If you’ve added me to your list/blogroll…a change from it’s former “tiggahtigz.net” to the new one would be greatly appreciated…thanks!
