The silence for the last few months has been because my life got crazy.  I’ve been spending a lot of time working and what hasn’t been working has been spent in preparation for our new baby.  Yes, thats right, baby.  In 2006 we were told by a fertility doctor that we would likely never have kids.  We didn’t… Read More »

By | October 31, 2006

Its that time of year again! No, not that time, its Halloween! That of course means pumpkin carving. After last year’s marathon session on October 30th, we decided to get an earlier start this year. Got them on last weekend’s shopping trip and planned our Sunday around carving the unsuspecting cucurbita pepos. We must be getting better at… Read More »

Still in a time warp

By | October 22, 2006

That last post about Gothic II, model trains and Al Lowe’s new game I started back in May. It took me almost 5 months to get back to it. Talk about being in a long term time warp. There have been a lot of things happening at my company, most of which I can’t talk about publicly because… Read More »
