I got so much done yesterday after work that even sleeping for 8 hours didn’t seem enough. I finished raking and scooping up the gallons upon gallons of shredded pine cones (courtesy of the squirrels) from the yard. I mowed. And mowed. And got covered in dirt. It hasn’t been as wet lately so we […]

Superfecta Weekend

Monday, August 14th, 2006 · Comments Off on Superfecta Weekend

Another unbelievable weekend has just passed (so much fun I don’t know where the time goes!) — this one filled with tons of good luck, which began Friday when Jen scored free orchestra tickets from her company for the Sunday night Tom Petty show at SPAC (her 10th Petty show in 19 years; my 5th […]

Lately my Yahoo Music station has been playing a lot of Tom Petty. I think it was a sign of the good fortune we had yesterday: Jen won some awesome orchestra tickets from her company for us to go to tomorrow’s sold-out Petty show at SPAC! I’m psyched and can’t wait. We also went last […]

Annual Photo Books

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006 · Comments Off on Annual Photo Books

Summer goes by in a flash. When we’re not partying, traveling, or entertaining friends from out of town, we’re hard at work — full-time jobs, volunteer jobs, contract jobs, extracurricular jobs — or sleeping. Which leaves little time for blogging. And when I don’t blog, people start to wonder, and ask me why I haven’t […]

Tesla: Electric Supercar

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006 · 1 Comment

I’ve always loved cars. There are the basic benefits they give us: The ability to efficiently and quickly move across town or across the country, to connect with friends and family, and to aid in national commerce (through trucking). Then there’s the styling and the performance side of cars that I love: The lines, the […]

Scorching Temperatures

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2006 · Comments Off on Scorching Temperatures

We’ve seen some record heat this week, with temperatures here in the Capital Region soaring to 96 degrees yesterday and the heat index — once you add the humidity — making it feel like 108 degrees. I caught the treemometer displaying about 92 degrees yesterday afternoon (keep in mind it’s on a tree that’s mostly […]
