What's in a name?

I decided to change the blog name. We can call it AHOB for short. It's been over a year since I started this blog so it's far more clear to me what it's about. It's certainly not a professional blog. Where given my profession, the old name would have been more appropriate. Rather, it's simply a personal journal. My hill of beans. Doesn't amount to much in this crazy world, but it's the stuff that matters to me. Now my regular readers don't have to ask what's up. But I bet you both will anyway.

I have also been tagged. Not being big on the rules for such things, I'm not going to follow them. But I thought it would be fun to share some random facts about myself. Besides, I have to outdo Ranger Paul. So here goes...

- I caught a foul ball at a Major League baseball game, twice. Both at the Big A. The first one was hit by Pags, the other during a Wally... Wally... Wally... chant.

- I once drove from Fargo to Minneapolis just to attend a DEVO concert. I also drove back to Fargo after and made it to class the next morning. It wasn't worth it, they weren't very good.

- I learned to downhill ski by taking the gondola to the top of Mammoth Mountain. A friend was certain I would know how once I made it back to the lodge.

- I chipped in from 20 yards on 17 at Braemar a couple weeks ago (for double bogey - don't ask).

I think that's quite enough of that.
