Laura and I both had a three-day weekend, thanks to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Since we didn’t go anywhere for our anniversary, we decided to head out of town on a road trip. The destination she suggested nearly floored me — Myrtle Beach. I’ve already expressed my opinions on MB, but Laura’s experience was … Continue reading Myrtle Beach!?!?!?!??!
My last day in this hell hole. Did I say I hate Myrtle Beach? Once again, I’m at my favorite Greek breakfast nook. It’s relatively cheap, and the service is good. How about that – a geek at a Greek restaurant. Last night we went to the CSI bash at House of Blues. I actually … Continue reading Edtech 2003 2
Once again, I’m sitting in the restaurant, acting like a geek. I’m also noticing that my Palm batteries are getting lower and I didn’t bring a charger. I’m just hoping it holds out until tomorrow. Last night I stood up a free dinner with a vendor, Trillion, to eat with my tech team. Most of … Continue reading Edtech-2003
OK, I’ve just identified myself as a geek. I’ve opened up my keyboard to update this blog in a pancake house in Myrtle Beach. September just disappeared on me. It marked the start of Furman football games, cooler temperatures, awful new TV shows, and a deluge of leaves. We still haven’t gotten everything thing cleaned … Continue reading Edtech 2003 3
Vacation’s over, and it’s back to work. Even with 90 degree heat and humidity, it seems like fall is upon us. I think it’s the knowledge that school is only two weeks away. The past two work days have let me know that I’ve got ‘way too much to do before that time gets here! … Continue reading “All’s Well that Ends Well”
I guess every vacation must have its one day of disasters. This was ours. After a brief, but very hot and humid stop in Colonial Williamsburg, we decided that we had enough of the 18th century. We headed east toward Norfolk and the coast, our intent being to drive partly up the east shore of … Continue reading “I’m Henry the Eighth I am, I’m Henry the Eighth I
Actually, it isn’t a theory — just some observations, and it certainly isn’t unified in the Einsteinian sense. I guess it’s more a set of cosmic connections, or, more likely, neat coincidences. On Wednesday we started the long ride from Greenville to Williamsburg, Virginia. We planned to catch several productions of the Virigina Shakespeare Festival, … Continue reading The Unified Field Theory of Vacations
Vacations are WAY too short. We got back in Sunday evening, and today was another fast and furious work day. It seems that I had to pack five days of make-up work into one. Saturday we went back out on Carl’s boat, but once again the seas were choppy, so we didn’t make it off-shore. … Continue reading Fishing with Carl
It’s the first week of June and I’m finally on vacation. Most of this week has been spend floating on various things – boats, kayaks, pool floats, alcohol, and dramamine. We tried going off-shore yesterday, but the seas were quite a bit higher than NOAA predicted. Amy caught a king fish and I caught … Continue reading VACATION!!
