Just some upkeep on things…


  • The Grand Canyon is very cool.  I’ll be game to go back just about any time.  It took us three hours to hike a mere three miles round trip on the Bright Angel Trail.  After that, we hiked along the Rim Trail and put in a total of six or so miles for the day.  The day was clear and we had beautiful views.

  • Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers be awesome.  Not much else to say besides that.  Our seats were in the nosebleed section but we had a great view and the music was awesome.   I can safely say my concert wish-list is complete.


Lightning wasn’t the best for cameras but honest, the view was a lot better than this.
  • Work is busy.  Unlike the old job at the Help Desk, where summer passed at a fairly relaxed pace, the new job is very busy during the summer months.  This is mostly because of our Faculty Rollout where we give new computers to a quarter of the faculty on campus.  Busy or not though, I am enjoying the new job.  It’s a lot less stressful and I get to do new things.
  • Writing … it’s happening.  Not much else to say right now.
