When I was a teenager, my mom started taking note of everything the family did on January 20. It was just some random day, and some random idea to do as a fun thing for the family. Over the years we’ve kept that up as a family; sometimes more or less involved. A couple of […]
My dad passed away two years ago today. I was recently in Arizona, but didn’t visit his grave site. This is what I wrote to my family about that. It was great to be in Arizona at the end of June and July. I had really wanted to visit Dad’s grave while I was there. […]
My dad passed away kind of unexpectedly a few weeks ago. He was diagnosed with liver cancer (although he never drank a drop of alcohol) about two years ago. At that time he was given a year or two to live. For the past year or so, he was in and out of the hospital […]

Today’s images are brought to you in the little “server room” next to my office. It’s really just a room with tile flooring. The Computer Science Department wants to make it into a server room, so I had to move all of our junk out. We had lots.
