It's like family, only weirder…

Birthday Cheers. Skål!

…And upon the third decade of life, such an elaborate scheme was laid upon the woolen eyes of their victim. Never before have I been so bewildered and pleased in the same breath. Here’s the skinny on one of the greatest sting operations of all times. Jeff calls me early…Continue Reading

First Solo

I was totally dissappointed to learn that I missed Balthazar’s first ever live solo gig. It was a total surprise to Amy too. Today, Balthazar took part in his day care’s Christmas pageant thingy. He had learned a song on Monday that he apparently showed great enthusiasm for. So this…Continue Reading

A Night at the Boiler Room

We’ve never been the type of crowd that hangs out at the Boiler Room on a Saturday night. Tonight didn’t change that, even though we did spend this Saturday in the depths of hip-hop dancing, drinking, and masquerade festivities. Probably as good a taste as we could get in their…Continue Reading

WP 2.0.4 *Complete

All done! Mark – 12:31pm That’s painless enough (and slower because I got to reading some documentation instead of watching the upload status). We’re now 2.0.4 and glorious because of it! Sorry if anyone reached an error page during the 5 minutes of updates. There’s actually a more fault tolerant…Continue Reading

Stairway to Heaven

The family made a trip this afternoon up to Amicalola Falls near Ellijay for some much needed together time and natural communion. Balthazar loved the walk, which is probably 1/4 mile – maybe 1/2 at most to the falls’ base. However, a big part of that hike is 125 steps…Continue Reading

Think You’re Hot, Check This Out…

Scientists just created (and recreated) the hottest temperatures in this solar system. Our sun is luke warm compared to the 3.6 billion degrees Fahrenheit reached within Sandia National Labratory’s Z Machine. This is hotter than the interior of our sun, which is about 15 million degrees Kelvin, and also hotter…Continue Reading

Major Updates Coming

Seriously this time. I’m in the process of migrating the site over to WordPress 2.0.1. I’ve done it in beta now and have finally reached full success. There were issues with importing comments that I’ve finally worked out. The last element of known risk is permanent links. Out there in…Continue Reading
