Happy, happy

Today is Thanksgiving's Day and I am very thankful for my health, family and friends. I am mostly thankful though to have met the love of my life and to be happily married to her.

A run up Pilot Mountain

On Saturday I ran up Pilot Mountain with Treb, who was kind enough to introduce me to this very nice trail run. It was a bit too cold on the top to hang out and really enjoy the views but we still took in some some magnificent vistas in passing. :-)
Thanks Treb.

The famous Ironman crawl

The 1997 Ironman Hawaii finish gives me chills every time I see it. But I also know that many people have never seen this. Watch Sian Welch and Wendy Ingraham in a display of unbelievable will and determination at the end of 140.6 miles of swimming, biking and running.

Piedmont Craftsmen

Amy and I went to the Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair today at the Benton Convention Center in downtown Winston-Sale. We noticed all kinds of interesting pieces of arts and crafts, but the most interesting projects came from a female "craftsman" named Cynthia Wynn.

Where we currently live

Thanks to the very nice street view of the google maps you can actually see quite clearly where we live in Winston-Salem, NC.

We are on the third floor of the Piedmont Leaf Lofts

Don't forget album covers

In this age of iPods and downloadable tunes you may forget what album covers used to looked like. makes sure that you at least won't forget the crazy ones. Organized neatly by category (see a sample of "duets" and "coordinated groups" below), this site is quite a hoot.

A snapshot in time

Here is a screen shot of the FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) at 10pm Eastern. This is one of the biggest German news papers and it is all about the US election.

Homer Simpson votes

Homer Simpson may not be smart, but smart enough to understand that it is time for a change. Let's hope that the voting machines are not "too smart" though.

24 hours before...

... we can pretty much call Barack Obama the next president of the United States.
