Sorry for the Inconvenience – We Are Closed!


Blogging has so many forms. On one end of the spectrum are the business styled blogs which are informative but you really do not know who the person really is that is writing it. Then on the opposite end of the spectrum are the personal blogs. These are sometimes like taking a sneak peek into someone’s diary.

I would say that mine is somewhere in the middle but maybe leaning towards the business style. I do like to give some glimpses into my story book past but I hardly touch upon my day-to-day life in the present.

Leavin’ on a Jet Plane!

Well, today I took a rare day off from work. I went into my coin cup and dug out all the loose change and found 15 reals which is the currency of Brazil. This should get me a meal in the airport during my layover.

Yes! I am off to Brazil for a week and a few days. So this means no cool surfing posts and no “Noise to Note!” for Mullet Killer so spare me your angry rants!

This short trip is an important one for me in so many ways. When I return I will write more about the past few years.

Closing the Shop

So the shop is closed but I will be back and maybe I will catch a wave or two as well.

Tchau meu amigos e amigas!

Aloooooooooo Brazil!

My fiances' neighborhood. I will be in one of those houses just above the pier which is Ponte do Metalica.

    Ohhh, have fun! I’m glad to see the glimpses into the personal Steve when you give them. Sometimes those even come through in the form of comments that you leave on my blog. I hope you have an awesome trip, Steve. I know you need it. Take pics!!!

    Hi, I found the beginning of your post intriguing. You followed my blog this morning. Which one do you think my blog falls in? Am I the business side the personal side or somewhere in between? I came over to thank you so much for following my blog. I am truly honored and now thanks to your post I am intrigued too. Nice meeting you

      Nice meeting you too and sorry for the late response…super busy! As for blogging…I like the content of your blog. Really useful material. As for the personal side, I have found the comment sections are where people connect. You just can not get that from a classic novel. Of course, you can always become a stalking fan and send hundreds of unanswered letters which is probably not to harmful unless it becomes a tale inspired by “Misery”! Ha ha!

      Have a good week!
