This article is intended to be the first of a series of articles that explain in as much detail as possible, how the Dual Angle Layout Technique works and how you can start to apply it to your game – or at least help you to better understand the why’s and how’s of the layouts you might have on your equipment.

Immigration proceedings and Parkersburg,WV!

Okay, so I recently received a “Notice of Action” from the USCIS informing me that was required to travel to Charleston, WV for “biometrics” appointment on Thursday, June 3, 2010. What’s a biometrics appointment? In a nutshell, it’s a finger print and mug shot. LOL! I was asked countless times why I couldn’t have done that at the local sheriff’s office. Basically, I had to have an official USCIS Officer/worker there to take the details. As you can imagine, there are many thousands of people doing exactly what I’m doing here in the US. I would be a logistical nightmare to manage all those people if they just went to their local sheriff’s office to get their biometric information taken. It just easier, for them at least, if they have offices located throughout the country and have people travel to the locations, rather than sending official workers to the applicants.

Newport, KY and Mo Pinel

Okay, so just a week or so ago, I blogged about my itinerary for the upcoming month. Well, yesterday being my birthday, we made the trip up to Newport, KY. After getting quite a late night trying to get some last minute work out of the way before we left, we were up at 7am to get out the door by 8am. For once, we got out of the house on time but we had to stop to get some stuff for the trip. Three and a half hours is a long way to go with a 20 month old in the back with no snacks or anything to drink. We finally got out on the road by about 8.20am. Not bad at all!

Okay, so March is already here. Sue me! 😛

This month will prove to be a rather busy one for me. This month I turn 30, I have to submit my application the United States Citizen and Immigration Service (USCIS) to have the conditional status removed from my Permanent Residence Visa, I will travelling to Newport, KY for a bowling lesson and I will competing in an in-house bowling tournament. YAY MARCH!
