Waldron-rific Weekend

Our good friends Chris and Sal­ly stayed with us this past week­end on their dri­ve back home. We had­n’t seen them in about a year, since they were first announc­ing to the world that they were preg­nant. Well, as you can imag­ine, this trip was even bet­ter. This time, instead of blur­ry B&W sono­grams, we… Con­tin­ue read­ing Wal­dron-rif­ic Weekend

I had a remark­able 241 com­ment spam items caught by Akismet this morn­ing. So far, Akismet has missed only about two or three items and only had one false pos­i­tive that I know of. Pret­ty remark­able since it has caught over 1,600 com­ment spam messeges since I first installed it. How­ev­er, I don’t the patience… Con­tin­ue read­ing Spam-a-lot

Traveling Band

Dave rocks out on his twangy Tele­cast­er while play­ing for Stephen Sim­mons, who was in Ash­land, VA last Fri­day night. That’s Paul on drums and Willie on bass. My younger broth­er Dave was in town Fri­day to play a show up at the Ash­land Cof­fee & Tea house with Stephen Sim­mons. We had a good time… Con­tin­ue read­ing Trav­el­ing Band

Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”

Sat­ur­day night, I konked Angela over the head with a bil­ly club and drug her down to the West­hamp­ton Twin to see the doc­u­men­tary star­ing for­mer politi­cian Al Gore, Jr., An Incon­ve­nient Truth. Okay, so I real­ly did­n’t knock her out, either with a club or with drugs, but it did take some con­vinc­ing on… Con­tin­ue read­ing Al Gore’s “An Incon­ve­nient Truth”

Google Search Anomoly

Now here’s some­thing real­ly weird. I read about the fit­ness track­ing site WeEn­dure a cou­ple of weeks ago on Life­hack­er and signed up for an account. I’ve been using it reg­u­lar­ly. I just hap­pened to do a google search for ween­dure to see if there were any oth­er arti­cles on the site (I am in… Con­tin­ue read­ing Google Search Anomoly

Back In The Saddle (Sore)

Angela con­vinced me that we absolute­ly need­ed to do the marathon train­ing team again this year. It would be dif­fi­cult for me to put down in one post just how much we learned doing this last year. In short, we went from peo­ple who go jog­ging occa­sion­al­ly to run­ners. Here would be my top list… Con­tin­ue read­ing Back In The Sad­dle (Sore)

Tree Exchange

One of my favorite bloom­ing-any­thing is an orna­men­tal cher­ry tree. I can real­ly say why, since it’s not like there were any in the yard where I grew up. There’s just some­thing about them that I find beau­ti­ful and relax­ing. I find it hard to see one with hav­ing also the urge to pho­to­graph it.… Con­tin­ue read­ing Tree Exchange
