I'm thinking of bringing this blog back to life. It has been an awfully long while.

Beautiful Day

It was a beautiful day for a nice bike ride down Ocean Boulevard. Betsy and I stopped in to River City Cafe on 21st Avenue for a quick bite. The weather is cooling off just a little and summer is winding to a close. We are coming up on some great days ahead. Soon the a/c goes off, and the windows fly open to greet the fresh air. It's a good day to be alive.

Betsy and I have been bicycling every afternoon after work, weather permitting. We have been up to this for about two weeks now. It feels great to be in motion. We seem to be getting stronger. Next step is to add some crunches and push-ups to our routine. We are going to be doing these two challenges:

Two Hundred Sit-Ups

One Hundred Push Ups

I feel it will be great to run these simultaneously. We are moving along in a natural, unforced way. We will be ramping it up in due course.

Katie Begins Her Brisbane Semester

    Yesterday, my daughter Katie arrived in Australia to begin her semester abroad at University of Queensland in Brisbane. We will be communicating primarily via Skype or iChat. After a good nights rest, I am happy to say Katie is quite upbeat about her visit. Yesterday, after a long couple of flights across several time zones, she was a little bit stressed out and punchy. She went to sleep at about 5:30 PM, and slept until about 7:00 AM. She is now out and about, exploring the city and picking up a few needed items. She met a british girl last night while fooling with the lobby computers, which had crappy internet. The British girl invited Katie to join her out and about today, perhaps going to the beach and taking in the scenery and getting a lay of the land. I am hoping the visit will be an all around success for education, experience, and lasting friendships.

    Katie started a blog about her Australia experience here.

An Appeal To A Majority

"Nothing is more abhorrent to a reasonable man than an appeal to a majority; for it consistes of a few strong men, as leaders, of knaves, who temporize, of the feeble who are hangers-on, and of the multitudes who follow without the slightest idea of what they want."
