Do You Care: Son of Carmack

Most Kansas Citians my age (40 and up) remember local TV reporter Stan Carmack. But do you care that his son John became a giant in the video game world and is now competing for the X prize?

My Bug Man

Esau Formusoh is my bug man. He comes twice a year for the silverfish and the spiders. He monitors our place for termites. I highly recommend him. We don't have termites and the silverfish and spiders are rare visitors these days. He helped my mom get rid of a huge colony of ants in her attic and I told my friend Tony about him after bees appeared in Tony's basement. He also earned a Ph.d in bugs. I guess that makes him Dr. bug man. I call him Esau to tell you the truth.
My bug man is getting popular. His picture was in the Lawrence Journal-World today.

The Pedaljets Return

This post is long overdue. The Pedaljets were one of two top local bands in Lawrence during my college years (1983-1988, with the other being the Micronotz). All hail The Pedaljets myspace page complete with songs, a concert video from a reunion gig earlier this year, and a video collage of mementos.
