I swear there are photographs somewhere.

In keeping with the new “screw with my computer until too late” theme (same as the old theme) I decided to upgrade my Quicken to something that actually runs on a Mac made in this decade. That is, from Quicken 2007 to Quicken Essentials. What a pain in the tuckus that was. And now it’s tomorrow and I need to get some sleep. Yes there are pictures. I’m going to do something about them soon.

Gone for a week and a half and still sorting through my pictures.

I didn’t get that many pictures last week because, well, I don’t take as many pictures as I should. And some of the ones I took are AWFUL. But I have a few pictures of the guys I hung out with at the reunion (mostly the same group of guys). I also have a few pictures from the Apple conference, but mostly of the BEST HAMBURGER I EVER HAD at Citizen’s Band. Oh and another picture of a different astronaut, Buzz Aldrin.

Come to think of it, I think a lot of the kids I met were a lot like their parents in many ways. Ron and Kyla Duncan’s kids were as nice and easy going as Ron and Kyla. Dara Foias’ daughter seemed as clever and inquisitive as you’d expect from parents who are Dara … Continue reading

MIT 25th reunion!

Whee! I made it to Boston today and I met up with three of my old classmates, Dr. Mike Malaska, Dr. Juan Alvarez, and Ron Duncan. I also saw Kyla Duncan, M.S. and Colin Shepard (NRS) who works in Hillsboro (where I do) but I had to wait 25 years and travel the width of the US to see him again. I kept describing everyone as the big cheeses while I’m kind of a disappointment and waste of an MIT education. I also met the kids of Dr. Robert Satcher, M.D., Ph.D., astronaut and Ron and Kyla’s kids as well. I did meet an MIT grad who was serving ice … Continue reading
