Dusting this blog off…

Posted by cybertoad on 06/22/2016 in commentary, personal, travel |

Hello everyone! I hope you like the updated look and the new focus on travel. I’ve had this blog since the summer of 2001 and I couldn’t just give it up after 15 years. You can read a little more of the blog’s history here… In addition to simply updating the theme with new background […]


Riled Up

Posted by cybertoad on 06/27/2013 in commentary |

I am not one who typically engages in political discussions because they can get so heated and personal and often times, no minds are changed among those arguing but… the events of the past couple of days has riled me up more than usual. I simply want you to think about the following: the issues […]

Experiencing Cuba as an Habanero, not as a Tourist

Posted by cybertoad on 01/09/2013 in commentary, me, photography, travel |

I wrote up a short travel essay about my trip last year to Cuba. It was published at the end of last year over at the travel website DIWYY so I decided to post it here as well… Here is the essay in its entirety. Slideshow from my entire trip is at the very end […]

Another year has gone by and last Thursday, I entered the last year in my thirties. It was a quieter birthday than most years… Kenny and I haven’t even technically gone out for my birthday dinner yet because we have been busy with other events on our calendar. It didn’t help that I was sick […]


How I’d Teach My Kid to Drive

Posted by cybertoad on 09/11/2012 in commentary |

This is another totally random thought process I do – when I drive, I randomly think of driving tips I’d give my imaginary teenage child as they learn to drive. I know, I’m crazy, so what’s your point? And no, I am not the world’s greatest driver. I have been in accidents, both my fault […]


Getting back to my Cuban roots…

Posted by cybertoad on 03/06/2012 in commentary, travel |

Over the weekend, I booked my trip to Cuba. To Havana (or Habana, the correct spelling) to be specific. I still have family there and can legally visit (my parents left the island in 1968 – and although my sister was born there, I was born in the US, here in Houston). I have wanted […]


New postition at work has me so busy!

Posted by cybertoad on 08/24/2011 in commentary, misc |

Eep! The work week has flown by! I am in a new position at work – new department too. Even changed floors and cubicles. After five years in one department, I am now in marketing as the Social Media Manager for a large restaurant company. I am over two major brands which have over 300 […]


If I were president…

Posted by cybertoad on 05/15/2011 in commentary |

Over the past years I have collected (in my mind) random ideas that I would implement if I were president. OK, I know legally the president couldn’t put many of these into affect but you get my drift… So if I were president… > Large event centers would be required to have twice as many […]


R.I.P. Louis Alten

Posted by cybertoad on 03/31/2011 in commentary |

Last week a friend of ours passed away after a tragic skiing accident. Louis had grown up skiing and was experienced, it was simply a freak accident with no explanation. No blame to be had by anyone. It has made me more contemplative than usual though. He was only 39, 6 months younger than my […]
