Great podcast that I've been listening too.


Having a heck of a time trying to get WiFi to work on this Backtrack 5 installation on a Dell D610. I am sure it's just a matter of time that I figure it out, but I am impatient this morning.

Medieval Times

I went to Medieval Times yesterday with the kids from school, a field trip, and had a great time.  Everything went smoothly on the trip although I haven't checked my classroom to see what happened there. I intentionally avoided that like the plague so I wouldn't be pissed off, since I knew the kids would have given the substitute a run for his money.  They are getting alittle out of hand and I've had to sit of them pretty hard, so I can imagine what it was like for him. Our knight, the red knight didn't win the battle but all the kids had a great time.  I posted a few pictures on Flickr, but I didn't take my DSLR, I took an old point and shoot that I leave in my truck, so sorry if they aren't very good pictures.

Home alone

Nice day yesterday spending some time alone. Debbie took the girls to see the Muppet movie, which she said was good, so I spent the afternoon alone.  I got some errands done and had some nice quiet time to read and take a long walk. It's nice to know your not in a rush to get anything done or get home to listen to little girls argue with one another.

Some people never change

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
