I really have intended to work my way through the photos from our September trip. However, I have managed to find other activities to keep me from that goal. I do, however, have a new photo gallery for Day 3 of Rocky Mountain National Park.
Work, of course, takes a huge chunk of time and my time is shifted since the simulator is primarily available for the students in the evening. While I was planning for the contract to be over at the end of 2009, there is a distinct possibility that I will be there until the second week of March.
Karen has a new notebook computer. I spent the better part of a day installing all of her old programs and transferring files. The notebook runs on Windows 7.
I’m going to also be moving from XP to Windows 7. After restoring my laptop to near original configuration, there are still times where I am waiting an excessive time for processes to finish. My new laptop is on order and will be assembled and shipped next week.
Early this year, I rediscovered a love for reading. I used to read three or more novels a week on a regular basis. After many years of only a few books a year, I’m now reading at least a couple of books a week.
This has been the wettest year of all the years we have lived in Arkansas. Much of the state is well over 20″ over the normal rainfall amounts for the year to date. This is already about the 12th or 13th wettest year on record for Little Rock. From what I understand, the wettest year on record was in the 1880s, and there was a little more than ten inches more than what Little Rock has already so far this year — and there is still two more months of 2009 to go.
I’m going to be concentrating on posting the rest of the material from our September trip and building photo galleries. I’ll post on other topics as I have the time and the inclination.
