#279 - A, L, B, U..... QUERQUE!

Motto: Baskin Robbins always finds out

I spent a couple of nights in Albuquerque earlier this week. It was my first time (in memory) down around that state. Technically, I think I saw a bit of New Mexico when my parents took us down to the Grand Canyon - but that was too long ago for me to remember much. Anyway, New Mexico was cool. The food was great. There were colorful signs everywhere. There were no clouds in the sky. There was no humidity in the air. The whole city ranged from really nice and fancy to really not those things.

I was there for business, but did get a chance to go The National Museum of Nuclear Science and History. It was super cool seeing all that stuff. Learning about the history of nuclear science, the race to the atomic bomb, the Manhattan project, WW2, the Cold War, and our more modern day stuff, was all extremely cool and interesting. Having said all that, I think the most interesting picture I took that day was this one:

I'm fairly confident that I the you…

#278 - One Thousand Days

Motto: I have two on-going projects over 1,000 days old because I've only ever had two good ideas

This post going to be very short. I just wrote and published a "The Life Tracker Feature" elsewhere on this blog. This post is mostly to point out that is available for read.

Told you this was going to be short. Click that link. Here it is again, just cause.

Here's a picture:

Top 5: Things I SHOULD Have Written About Also
5. Melissa hung up some color-changing IKEA lights behind her monitor. Now her desk is wicked awesome. In a Boston accent, please - Wicked Ahhsum.
4. I love Nalgene bottles, but it turns out I also love Blender Bottles. It could just be that I love waterbottles?
3. 7 Wonders, Splendor, Dominion, Pandemic... I like games. Melissa and my collection is getting respectable.
2. I have two projects that are over 1000 days old at this point... but I also have a staggeringly impressive project graveyard. The massive website re-design (away from Blogger) is fighting to …

#277 - Year = Year + 1

Motto: 2015 was cool.
This Column is going to be written over the course of a few days. There's too much going on for me write now. I'm at the Hill house. Avatar is playing on the TV. I forgot that Avatar is actually pretty good. I've been learning how to play 7 Wonders. It's one of the many board games I learned how to play over my holiday vacation (see more about that in the Top 5).
Notice I said "my holiday vacation"? That's because my new job actually gives people a vacation at the end of the year rather than saying "you want time to see your family? Use your vacation days, darnit!" I make it a policy not to write about my job on here (for several reasons), but I really like it, so sometimes it's hard not to gush.
My favorite fitness-related website has gone through a fairly major re-write. I wrote about Simple Science Fitness two and a half years ago, it's still worth reading today. I contacted the author with a question/clarification …
