[Photography] Daily Video Redux

A video used to be embedded here but the service that it was hosted on has shut down.{Video}

This video moves quicker than the other one. And it covers 8 years. Its a faster watch, and you definately can see the changes over time. Watching the facial hair addition is really cool too.

[Family] We’re leaving on a jet plane..

So we’re all heading out to Las Vegas tonight.. I’ll be back Monday night.

My mom is getting remarried.

My folks got divorced when I was in college, and when my mom told me she was getting remarried, I told her the same thing I told her back then – ‘Whatever makes you happy’. That’s not to say I wasn’t surprised. She’s only been dating her fiance about a year and a half, but she really feels right with him. My mom has enough experience with the world (rather than calling her old), and has already made enough mistakes, that I really have to believe that she knows what she is doing.

[Personal] Get out of the nest.. now!

Some background for non-scadian readers: For those that don’t know, I’m active in a group called the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Specifically, I live in the East Kingdom. I’ve been involved since I was 16 and I’m most interested in historical fencing. I’ve received an award called the Order of the Golden Rapier (or OGR for short). This is highest level award you can receive in the East Kingdom for skill and service to fencing. Forgive me as I slip some common SCA terms into this post.

[Personal] 97T or 98T?

I need some help from someone who actually knows something about tires. This is a long post regarding it, so be prepared.

We got a flat in our Honda Odyssey (2004). Since it’s too close to the sidewall, they couldn’t patch it. Since we’re at 77k miles on the factory tires which are rated for 65k, we decided the best thing to do would be to replace all four.

[Personal] I wan’a Ice cream.. I wannnnnaaaa ICE CREAM

This past weekend, we finally got our new fence installed. Originally I was going to install it myself with the help of some friends. The more and more I thought about it, the more I realized that it was money well-spent to have the professionals do it themselves. I had a 95% rate when it came to remembering who to call to remind them that they didn’t need to show up. I kinda forgot that our friend Mike (Andre) had offered to come over too.
