2016 NASCAR trip

So I want to go to TWO #NASCAR races this year.

Back – to – Back.

The schedule works out best to go to Talladega, Alabama then on to Kansas Speedway.

Talladega is a Sunday race, Kansas is a Saturday race.

11 hour drive from Talladega to Kansas.

Who’s in?

Talladega is Sunday 05/01/2016
Kansas is Saturday 05/07/2016.

That would also give us 22 days to plan/have our wedding. #0529

What’s that?

Is it just me?

Do people refer to the University of Nebraska as NU in normal conversations?

Or is it just a certain collection of modified tree fibers that do it?

Vernon J – University of Nebraska Omaha Class of 2010

So my vacation officially started Friday, I just worked Friday & Monday. I have Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Monday & Tuesday free of work. Although I plan on campaigning.

The word of the day is odontoid which os of or resembling a tooth; toothlike.

I got my nap in, cause I’m a barrier like that.

Going to a campaign event tonight.

Yup a pretty good day.

Oh yeah

Yesterday was a grand day.

If you haven’t heard it yet, good morning & Happy Wednesday folks.

Work was good, movie was better, the event was great that I attended.

Today is the 22 day of October in the 36th year of Vernon J.

I forgot about Pint Night last night. The event I went to took priority. Also my text messaging was down so i didn’t get the where are you alert.

The word of the day is pavonine which is of or like a peacock.

Well today starts the 7/2 vacation plan. I’m on vacation from First Data, picking up some shifts at Dunkin’ Donuts. Tomorrow I’ll be there from 0515 to 1200, Friday from 0700 to 1400. Stop by for an Iced Hazelnut Dark Roast with cream & sugar, or whatever you’re drinking.

I’ve got 8 hours to do today.

What’s in your agenda?

Oh 53462

The washer is leaking a fluid from the doohickey that goes around. NOT the tub, but the other piece. It’s a brown liquid. <that was an official maintenance request sent.

Good Afternoon & Good weather?

I don’t know what it is called.

Today is the 14th Day of October in the 36th year of Vernon J.

The word of the day is juvenescent which is being or becoming youthful; young

A good day at work, heading to make calls for Nebraska Republican Candidates. Doing my part to get them elected.

What are you doing this evening?

Well I have 18 office hours left for the week. Doing II if vacation tomorrow.

Have a fun evening.

The Oscars

I didn’t watch the Oscars. So if you post who won what ‘spectacular’ award, I’ll hold your responsible for spoiling them. I plan to watch them in June. NOT that me holding you personally responsibly actually means anything, BUT I WILL. <this was posted on facebook as a status update).

Good Morning & Happy Monday,

I have no intention of watching the Oscars today, tomorrow, or yesterday.

Today is Monday 03/03/V3.4 & Clap Along if you know what happiness is too you.

I’m listening to Happy by Pharrell Williams. It was -19 when I woke up this morning & checked the weather. It is -20 degrees now. That means I need to listen to Zac Brown Band’s Colder Weather.

Well today me & Catherine(she started the same day I did) are suppose to get our own fraud cases to work. Speaking of fraud I checked my account on Saturday & had some fraud myself. I didn’t get a call from my financial institution even though it was coming from a foreign billing website & there was a foreign currency fee. They apparently don’t use First Data for Fraud Detection.

The word of the day is a warning or caution; admonition.

Today for dinner we are having Chicken Cordon Bleu, maybe some wild rice. At least that’s the plan right now, it could change.

The UNO Hockey game was fun, they won, I wore shorts. I also owe CenturyLink Center $25 cause I made it on the big screen. Bridget saw me.

The brownies I made are delicious, there are two on the counter and two in my bag. I sure hope I don’t ‘have to’ eat the entire pan by myself. I’m making no effort to share them, but if you happen to stop over before I eat them you will get one. I’ll get home between 1600 & 1630.

This is an easy week for me Yeah! Nothing special at this time that I need to not be at home to do. (hint ladies).

Good Luck to the skating Mavs, as they need to Win 1 of the 2 games this weekend to clinch home ice. It doesn’t matter how they win, just do it.

The NASCAR race was great, Phoenix International Raceway is always a good time to watch though. Shorter Race, Lots of Passing, Go Fast Go. Kyle Bush got his first Top Ten Finish of the year. He finished 9th yesterday, 18th a week ago. He is 14th in the standings. Good Job Kyle.

So this came across:

NBC News can cover the trial live, but are unable (for some reason) to cover the Olympics Live. There is two problems with this. Sport is a happy & joyous occasion and shouldn’t be edited and paired down for rea$on$ unknown to me. The murder of Reeva Steenkamp is a sad occasion and shouldn’t be Sensationalized for rea$on$ unknown to me.

You see what I did there?

Well I’ll be back, before you read this.

So I really want to go to Kansas for the race. It is on Mother’s Day weekend. That had zero effect on me, but James will be with his mom.

So if you like NASCAR & wasn’t to go with me let me know. 402-516-4401 Vernon-J@Vernon-J.com.

I had a decision to make about going to the Kansas Race or Vegas in October. The situation hasn’t improved enough for me to go to Vegas. Sorry people who aren’t effected by my decision.

That’s it for now.

Taxes for a Cruise

Good Morning & Happy Friday,

I have decided that I will do taxes this upcoming season to take a cruise.

Today is Friday 08/16/V3.4 & it is a Happy #FNP!

The are at least 3 providers in the Omaha area that offer courses that start in the next month. This is decision time, but there are a couple things to consider upon taking this journey.

  1. Taking classes this fall
  2. Working two jobs the beginning of next year, next year is also an election year. I’d want to help with some campaigns.
  3. I may take courses next year at University of Nebraska Omaha to become a Master. UNO has a Master of Public Administration, a Public Administration-Management Information Systems Dual Program & a Public Administration-Social Work Dual Program. I think they ended their Masters in Marketing Program. Bellevue University doesn’t have a Masters in marketing. So that would mean I would need to take the post Bachelor tests this fall. The Applications for UNO are due near/around March 1st.
  4. I guess I’ll decided sometime in the next week.
  5. BTW the only reason I would do taxes is to save up for a cruise in the fall . A 5-day Western Caribbean cruise is less than a month’s rent. BUT that doesn’t include all the extras, you know the stuff that is extra. I picked my time frame from Sep 2014 to Nov 2014.

The word of the day is cummerbund which is a wide sash worn at the waist.

So I have a meeting at 11:30 today. It is for the African American Achievement Council. You are more than welcome to attend, it is at the OPS Teachers Administrative Center building. It is in the Board Dining Room to the left of the cafeteria. 3215 Cuming St. Omaha, NE 68131

Then I get to come home and do nothing or everything. I do what I want, but I could do what you wanted me too.

Well that’s it for now.

Vernon J out.


Bacon Jail

Good Morning & Happy Monday,

I’m in Bacon Jail & then I see this. Nat’s TurDuckEn wrapped in Bacon

Today is Monday 12/24/V3.3 & its a ‘different’ Monday.

Apparently we(me & Mindi) have an agreement where one of us have IV slices of bacon in a week. Someone may or may not have had more/less than IV last week. So I’m not suppose to & won’t have any bacon this week. The life of a boyfriend.


The things I have to deal with.

So we have work today & by we I mean me, Mindi, & other people. Of course Jim isn’t working UNTIL next year. You can give him crap via twitter @J_G_II is his name.

I’ve planned my 1st vacation of MMXIII by planned, I mean requested & got the days off approved. We are going to Wyoming baby. I’ve never been there. YOU can come too.  The dates are friday 04/12/V3.3 though Wednesday 04/17/V3.3. The other details will be worked out at a later time.

The word of the day is glissade which is to perform a sliding or gliding step.

Don’t forget, something witty here. Cause I forgot what I was going to type.

Have a GREAT Day!!!!


All You Have

Good Morning & Happy Wednesday,

All you have is all you have asked for? Nothing More Nothing Less

Today is Wednesday 11/28/V3.3 & it is a proofreading & editing kinda day.

Also help teach someone about Outlook Calendars today, YUP she has to use two of them.  I have that ability to teach someone.

So I didn’t eat the eggs for breakfast, oh you don’t know what I’m talking about? You must don’t follow me on twitter, WHY DON’T YOU?

The word of the day is svelte which is slender, especially gracefully slender in figure.

So tomorrow is a half day of work, by half day I mean I’m only working one job, two trips, three hours and 30 mins. Gotta love these days. I know I have a Red Cross donation Appointment at 13.00 & am scheduled to ring bells from 18.00 to 20.00 at Bag ‘N Save. I also have to do laundry & want to clean my condo. What did you say, seems like you DON’T actually have the day off. I do though.

Friday I work half day also, I’m off Saturday & Sunday. I thought I would be going out of town I will not be doing that though. So going to just enjoy the weekend & Sunday.

Make it a great day & read until your heart is content.

My Evening Report


Its here, its here, the FNP is mere moments away from the FNP.

You know when you read something, then realize that EVERYONE is in violation of said reading. You wanna give a hoot, but shan’t.Where do I go from here? (Well back to work).

Well I don’t really have anything.

I did get an offer to go to Mike & Dawn’s wedding in Hawaii. The chances of that happening are about the same as me getting a hot slice of Apple Pie today. Just 17 mins left today. So bring it.

I also want to go on a cruise for my REAL vacation. More later (ie either in the 4th month or 9 month of MMXIII.




The FNP is here & it is proudly presented by stuff.


My Habitat for Humanity Experience

On Friday 06/17/V3.2 I volunteered for Habitat for Humanity.

I signed up though http://habitatomaha.org/volunteer.asp, you can sign up too.  Help a family in need. I meet a guy who has done 2 builds (start to finish), every year since 1982.  He retired in 2005.

A Habitat for Humanity House in Omaha.

We put on the installation, the roofing stuff, put in the windows, sheeted a garage, walled in a basement.  I personally help with the installation, sheeting, went to Menard’s & picked up the siding.  I also helped with the installation backing.

It was a wonderful & fun experience.  They will be working on this house on Friday’s & Saturday’s until it is done.

Will you commit to the experience?
