Oh well, NaBloPoMo Fail

In case you didn’t notice it, there was no blog post last night. It was a crazy but fun day, but at the end both Dee and I were wiped out. I got up yesterday and got on over to Roanoke College to make sure my programming team was ready to compete and to answer …

On the Road to Roanoke

Observations: Even after rush hour ends, Atlanta traffic, even in the off-direction, is no fun. There’s a Carhartt outlet at Commerce. I wonder if they carry women’s stuff. Bulldogs are loveably slobbery fun to pet. Playing tug-of-war with a 40 pound bulldog is a good workout for your deltoids & such. The guys at Mountain …

This way I learned new techniques, played with new ideas, fed off of my classmates’ …

Off for a week

Nothing here for the next week — I will be up at the John C. Campbell Folk School taking lampworking classes with Marjorie Langston. I promise a report when I return!


I spent the last two days in Statesboro at the state CS committee meeting. The meeting itself was really dull. Things just haven’t been as lively since Chuck and some of the others retired and Laurie went to Mercer. The drive down and back was boring also — what did I expect, I-16 is one …

DailyDevotions365 Update

I haven’t been as good as I had hoped on the Daily Devotions project. It was tough getting started, since we were on the road on January 1 coming back from Melbourne. With DH doing most of the actual driving after I couldn’t keep my eyes open after lunch, I got in a nap and …
