Spring in South Branch

Monday, March 28th, 2005

We just got back from a relaxing Easter holiday at Mom and Dad’s cabin in South Branch. Doesn’t it look refreshing?

Kinesiology, Psychology and a minor in Chemistry

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

I was just listening to this crazy interview on local CBC radio. They were talking to two kids who recently attended a program for high school students to learn about university and university life.
When asked about where he was planning to attend university, the male student confidently said, "University of California". The interviewer asked […]

It’s a small web world

Monday, March 21st, 2005

I’m currently decompressing after working all weekend (argh!) and I happened upon GeoURL through MeFi. This site tracks sites by latitude and longitude. It’s pretty cool because you can see sites that are physically near you.
Check out the satellite shot of a phytoplankton bloom I found through GeoURL.
I’ve been evangelizing about Google Maps/Local for a […]

I’m so good

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

I’m so pleased with myself. I have made a conscious effort to read more. I have never been an avid reader, but I think over the past year I have discovered the true joy of reading. I think I have read more from September to now than I have my whole life (that’s probably an […]

My new toy

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

Yesterday I bought a new vacuum clearner. Our old Kenmore upright had been on the way out since last summer and yesterday it took its last breath. I went out and splurged on a new Dirt Devil Ultra Vision Turbo.
Actually, I didn’t really splurge. I’m not one to break the bank on necessities, such as […]

Monday, March 14th, 2005

Check out the pics from Carolyn’s business trip to Belize and Mexico. If there’s any place I’d like to go on a business trip during our cold winter, this is it.

Go crazy? Don’t mind if I do.

Every day, Carolyn and/or I go to a local soccer pitch and give Chiko a run with the frisbee. The field is up on a hill overlooking the city; it’s in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by trees. This time of year, it can be difficult even getting across the parking lot since it […]

I think I can

Sunday, March 13th, 2005

For those of you who know us well, or even know us a little, you know that Jim is the chef of the family. Jim loves to cook and is quite good at it. If I were to count up the number of times I have cooked a meal in the last 4 years, I […]

Be careful what you wish for

Sunday, March 6th, 2005

Be careful what you wish for. In my previous post I talked about my trip to Belize and the lack of time I had between flights. On my return from Mexico I did not have this problem. On Monday, February 28, I flew from Veracruz to Mexico City where I had a 4.5 hour stopover. […]
