Yesterday was Balthazar’s first day of school. It started early that morning and the whole family was up for the affair. We drove him in and walked him to his class. It’s one of those “big steps” in a child’s life. I am excited about the idea of him becoming independent … [Read more…]
While Balthazar’s first camping trip was actually over just before 10:00pm, he did get some good exposure to camp-life and the adventures that surround it.
Balthazar has been going on about a camping trip for days now. We’re not exactly sure where he picked this up, but I couldn’t be happier. I love camping … [Read more…]

Contrary to what you might think, as a technology guy I’m usually a little late for getting things up-to-date around the house. As such, I’m replacing an old Intellistation dual-proc … [Read more…]

1,200 years ago an acorn pushed a pale tendril into the sunlight to begin its adventure. Today, the resulting ancient Live Oak Tree resides partly sumberged in 5-feet of water in Louisiana. A tree like this might live a couple of weeks in these conditions; Oak Trees drown rather quickly in floods. … [Read more…]
Today the family traveled out to the Atlanta Botanical Garden for the Asian Cultural Experience. It was a really cool adventure as expected. I only learned about the event through a Flickr group I’m a member of, the Atlanta Flickr Group. Ironically, however, I didn’t get to see any of them at … [Read more…]
