Whew! Last week was a bit of blur as Renee’s brother and dad were in town. They came in Saturday and Sunday we were off to Disneyland. Scott had a great time and got to ride all the rides he wanted too despite being pretty sick. Monday, Jesse and I took dad to Calico Ghost Town which he enjoyed. Tuesday night we headed to Hollywood and I dropped everyone off at CBS to wait in line for Price Is Right at 2 am. Jesse and I slept at the hotel while they stood in line until 6 am waiting for the gates to open. Dad had a great time, but we were all pretty exhausted after that. They flew back to Texas early Friday morning and we spent the weekend relaxing and recovering. (I did a wedding on Saturday, but it was a short ceremony.) It is nice to be back on a regular schedule.
On the NAPP forum, someone suggested I sell the above image as a shirt. Now is your chace to buy one and help send my son to private school. (Only 3,374 more to go).
I am dozing off to sleep and suddenly the bed shakes and I pop up alert. An earthquake shook me awake. I got up to check on my son and he asks, “what was that?” I fire up the computer to check the USGS site and here comes another. Two 3.9 quakes only 5 minutes apart. It has been a couple of years since we have had any that strong here.

Has it really been two weeks since my last post. What a slacker! Let’s see I went to Palm Springs for the ESRI Developer Summit and sat in sessions with a bunch of GIS programers. What fun that was!It was nice to get out of the cubicle for a few days, but I really missed coming home at night to my family instead of a hotel room. This past weekend I worked on my “to do” list around the house. I got the swamp cooler all ready for summer and as you can expect we had the weather turn colder.I also put together a screen for a window that never had one. Boy is that a frustrating do-it-yourself job! I think I will pay someone to do that before I try it again.
Boy this month sure has gone by quickly. February is just around the corner and that means B-days and anniversary time. Wonder what to get? Superbowl is coming on Sunday and I have no idea who to cheer for. I am thinking the Colts since they have been longer without a title. Either way, a nice excuse to eat munchies.
