Costco

Image
November 16, 2017. What significant about this photo isn't that it's Costco, it's that it's the first photo shot with my new mobile phone. Andrea and I both got new Samsung S7s - I know, last year's model, but an excellent phone, and easier on our budget. Kudos to the salesperson in the Costco both who was a master at what he does, leaving me with the impression that I had more after meeting him than I did before we met. http://ift.tt/2yRTiCi

Watering Can

Image
November 15, 2017. Caught up on email today and wrote an article. Also admired the geraniums. This is a watering can we bought a while ago from Ikea for 75 cents. I love the design. Accomplishments: - wrote The Real Goal of Open Educational Resources http://ift.tt/2iZsCcl

Geraniums on a Shelf

Image
November 14, 2017. Andrea assembled the shelves we bought from Costco (not an easy task) and we set the geraniums (previously) up in their winter home. Meanwhile, I spent the afternoon in the office using the world's slowest web site to enter my work hours and time code information. Because, you know, I might be inefficient if I'm not closely managed. http://ift.tt/2mwK5xw

All in All

November 13, 2017. After four days work punctuated only by a shopping trip and a football game I finally finished my Consciousness paper. I feel like I ran a marathon. I know it's not as poliched as it could be but I wanted to capture what was in my head, not create a perfect paper artifact. It represents things I've been thinking about for a number of years. Anyhow I'm glad to have this work out of me and into a place where people can share. Accomplishments: - finished writing Consciousness http://ift.tt/2zAVEZX

Touchdown

Image
November 12, 2017. Today was mostly about the playoff football game. Going to a football game in cold weather requires forethought and preparation. Andrea got electric heated gloves. I hauled out my parka. We were there early, I had a foot-long hot dog, and then the game was on. Alas, we did not win. But it was fun, definitely value for money (as we were in the cheap seats) and we'll be back next year. http://ift.tt/2mk4Yw7
