The eyes have it

kathy eye

My computer has a little slide show running in the corner.  One of the images that always grabs my attention is Kathy's eye staring at me. 

It's like she's peeking through a little hole in my monitor to see what I am up to!

Ultimate season over -- sort of

Well, we lost at Regionals.  I won't go into the frustration of that.  I'll just say I still managed to enjoy the weekend.abusement park cgm throwing

So our traveling team's season is now over.  There are a few other tournaments coming up that will just be for fun.  We are taking some of the Goshen College students down to a tournament in Muncie.  And then there is Huckfest in early November.  These are both just one day fun tournaments.  I'm looking forward to them.  And we don't have to practice for them, nor do we have to keep working out every night to stay in excellent shape.  I do want to keep exercising, but I don't have to do it every night.

For now, I am headed off to play some disc golf.  It's nice having some extra time to enjoy!

Kristi's current show

My sister Kristi currently has a show running at the McGuffey Art Center in Charlottesville, VA. Here's a very nice review. I'm always amazed at the quality of both her artistic vision and the incredible skill with which she brings that vision into the world so the rest of us can enjoy it.

Here's an example of her work, entitled "Dappled Magnolia." Magnolia pods, gemstones, silver, copper. 7 in. diameter.

Intel’s Barrett: Teachers Matter More Than PCs - Bits Blog -

Rockstar teachers.  That's what America needs.  When I was in college they seemed to think this was getting better.  However it's been 10+ years and it doesn't seem much better.  I can see how it would be good to have a computer per student, but maybe we should give some of that money to the teachers who are actually teaching.

What do I know?
