Stopping by to post a couple photos, spending time with Danielle and her family. Not much alone time with the computer with a 4 and 3 year old in the house!
I’m ready to relax. I’ve let my stress get the better of me for too long now and I deserve a break! I just have to get on a plane tomorrow and arrive at my sister’s to be welcomed by her two wonderful little girls. (They’ve learned to expect me this time of year since this is my third year […]
Took the opportunity to arrive in Bloomington a little early and wandered around IU. There is much too much to see in a brief walk, so I’ll likely return soon. There were very few people around since the students are out due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Here are a couple photos, more at the link.
Since all we see are complaints, I thought I’d provide a little balance by sharing something positive. My AT&T mobile phone bill has consistently been predictable, landing somewhere around $89. This morning I received the emailed “you have a new bill” notice and opened it to find a $9.99 charge from “m-Qube Inc.” What? A quick Google search resulted in […]

Just noticed Google Gmail now has themes (find it under settings, themes).

Those over 40 should show those under 40 the ASCII theme and reminisce about how we used to see our email (see screen shot […]
I just filled out and submitted at rebate form for a 4GB compact flash card I purchased. Do the math: Purchase price including shipping was $69.84. The rebate is $70. Final price is -.16. How does that work? Does the company “make it up in volume?” Are they trying to get rid of old stock? Is the card used or […]
Take a look at the photo here. What type of people do you see? Factory workers? Auto workers hardened from years working in the foundry? Maybe workers from the railroad, experienced with sledge hammers and pick axes? Think again. They’re artists. Yep – art students at the Indianapolis Art Center learning the centuries old process of heating metal to a […]
what I’m going to do this weekend. I left work at the normal time, walked into my house and put my bag down, changed my clothes and then stopped . . . and realized I have no plans, no appointments, no projects, nothing at all on my calendar. Excellent! That’s my perfect weekend! So let me think . . . […]
