I am the winner now. Hopefully my win will stand for awhile. I'm running out of recycling and earth day activites to do. I'm tired of the mess cut and paste brings. And let me tell you, getting tiny scraps of paper up with a broom on industrial carpet is no fun.

Since I use the message board, I should probably put one core of my lappy on Collatz. But I get tired of keeping up with the thing. I gets unplugged occasionally and its battery gets run down. If I don't check it periodically then the WUs time out. Which doesn't do anybody any good. You see, the lappy is in the living room. My pi is in the office and my daily drive. (I just found reddit doesn't play nice with only 1 GB of RAM)

Oh well. I shall be the winner because Mikey likes me the best. That and because I'm 3 pounds short of my mini-goal of being half the weight I started at. Go me!

Hola folks.

Long time no talk. Life is good. Lesson plans are a pain (especially because I'm not teaching the stuff).

Cherry season seems to be over. It'll be another year before those little round orbs of deliciousness are back in season.

I'm off to eat the last of my cherries and do the lesson plans.

*waves hello to all the folks here*

Am I the winner? I think I should be. I'm pretty. I'm smart. I mean, what more can you want in a winner?

Kathryn, congratulations on the progress and good luck with the graduation!

Less than a month until I am back in the classroom. I have prepared approximately 35% of my lecture handouts (for the semester). Got to grind through a consulting gig in DC early next week. Then, the DoD has invited me to submit a proposal to develop new strategies for staging and treating metastatic melanoma patients. Draft is due August 15, with the final version due September 26. It's a great opportunity and I am look forward to the challenge of moving my ideas from my brain to the printed page.

Here we go ....


That sounds terrific David. Congrats to you on the DoD invite.

Just a quick pop in to say hi. I'm down to 229.8 pounds. I'm under 10 pounds to my mini-goal of 220. That way I can say I'm half the person I used to be.

We're planning for preschool graduation. God only knows what that entails. When we did it Korea, it was a lot of memorizing poems, songs and speeches. Hopefully it'll be a little more low key here.


WOO HOO!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! So what are you going to reward yourself with for your mini goal?

I too hope it's more low key but those Asian kids were awesome to watch, I lived in Japan, I was not that young though, and they did the same thing.


No one really seems to know what's going on and it's supposed to be on the 8th. I see stress in my future. If I were lucky, then they'd do all their practicing in the morning when I'm not there. I don't know if I'm lucky or not.

The delete key is getting a workout as it seems I forgot how to type.

Great weekend in Indiana. Helped my bro-in-law move into his new home on Friday and Saturday, then went to the Indy 500 with my wife, her college roommate, and the roomie's hubby. Great time at the track. It was sunny and hot, but our seats were in the second to the last row of a covered grandstand, so we were in the shade and benefited from the breeze. Parked about 2.5 miles from the track, so our walk was a bit strenuous, particularly since I was carrying a backpack cooler. But, once we got to the parking lot, the traffic was remarkably light, considering that attendance was estimated to be approximately 250,000.


WOO HOO!!! That is on my bucket list one day!!!

Did I tell you guys lately that I HATE Windows 10 networking BS?!!! I rebooted a pc today and it decided on it's own
that my home network is now public and my wired network no long works!!! I went registry edits, service edits and even
added in a 2nd ethernet card...NO LUCK!!! Tomorrow that pc will get switched over to Win 10 Enterprise to see if that
works or not, otherwise it's back to Win 7 for it!!


I thought most of Windows 10 was a clusterf***.

God help me. I'm making playdough with 4-5 year olds tomorrow.

Don't think my parents are up for visiting the summit of Mauna Kea, even by tour bus. .


This is what can go wrong on the road up Haleakaia when a tour bus takes a wrong turn. The shadows on the ground are our bicycles. The bus was still there when finally took the ride down and was still there as shown on the local news that night.



Yikes!

It's a long weekend folks (I hope for all of you). There will be ribs on the grill and maybe a frosty beverage or two.

I'm almost finished with the first of my 3 hour continuing education courses. The first part was psych 101. I had bad flashbacks.

All your computer talk. Pfffttt. You'd think this was DC or something.

They left me alone with children today. And me without anything planned. Talk about getting thrown in the deep end. One can only read so many stories before one wants to gouge ones eyes out.


Then why don't you bring in your Pi to show them what you can do with it?


It's serving as my desktop. Plus a little box isn't very interesting.


Oh but that's exactly what's interesting, that little box connects to the WHOLE internet!!


I'd hate to let them loose on the internet. My brain might explode. I'm taking my sneezy nose and having a glass of wine of reveling in the fact it's Friday.


No the idea is to let them see that technology has made the personal computer super tiny. You could come up with a list of 'approved' websites for them to see it really does work.



You should see the unused computers they have there. They bare a striking resemblance to my first computer in 1993. There's actually an Apple Imagewriter printer there, but no Apple IIc to drive it.

Technology is not their strong suit.

My cold is better. I'm not stomping around anymore with a sneeze in my nose that won't come out. I guess they feel comfortable leaving me alone with the kids. I had 10 of them today. I can get up to 12. I read The Cat in the Hat. I need some short books. They do 3 short books a lot better than 1 long one. Go figure. Half price books, here I come.


Next 20
