It’s good to know what I need to bring on my trip
Ha I hope this works. if it does it wil tweet out a link to this post. hmmm lets see
Recently, was asked to build a website for a project I was working on. Man was it fun. In the back of my mind I had always wanted to website of my own. I had a few small ones back in college but never really got anything off the ground. I have since removed myself from the previously mentioned project and am now missing the work I did on it. So I decided since I already had the domain, and already knew of a free web host from that project, I would try my hand again at making something last.
Ok so after facebook, and twitter and everything else i just stopped updating this. im looking for a way to re-build and re-design so that i can keep this up with a little less work.
I was trying to think of something to explain my thoughts but im at a loss for words. So instead I will leave you with this Poem.
This is one of the most famous poems about the Aggie Corps. It is read at Bonfire, and Muster each year, as well as any time we have trouble putting that Aggie Spirit within us into words. Continue reading
So today Nikki and I begin our first vacation without Skyler since she was born 3 years ago. And thanks to Lisa (and Chris) for letting us use her (their) timeshare for the week.
Backing up. Nikki and I have been wanting to go somewhere on a vacation as adults – not parents – for some time now. Skyler is big enough to stay with Grammie or Grandma now. The timeshare opportunity came up and we jumped on the chance. Fast forward a few months and here I am sitting on “The Sunset Limited” at 6am. Dave was nice enough to drive us here way earlier than God should allow people to be awake. We arrived at a small train station in north downtown Houston. Checked in and sat for a little bit. It was pretty cool to see the artifacts on the walls about the history of each of the lines that run through this station. There is the Burlington Northern that runs Dallas to Ft. Worth to Houston. Another runs north to Chicago.
The Sunset Limited runs from Los Angeles to New Orleans. The train used to divide up by individual cars and get ferried across the Mississippi river. That is until Dec 17, 1935. A bridge was built at a cost of $13,000,000. According to the wall of the station that bridge still is considered an engineering marvel.
I would like to say I’m going to blog about the trip every day. But we all know that’s not going to happen. So I’ll update as I can and we will see what happens. But for now, peace.
Ok so Nikki is going to kill me but I love this fricking phone. It does so much. I am still debating gon whether or not to jailbreak it. I would like some of the themes I have seen, but have heard that sometimes the push notifications get disabled or other things go haywire. So I’m kinda afraid to do it for fear of screwing up my phone. I’m going to do some more research then decide.
The address(URL) has changed. I now own www.theencode.net GoDaddy had a pretty good sale so I got it. Thanks to google apps I also now have a new email address. firstname.lastname@example.org So those are the changes that were coming. Everything is finally in place. will the old URL still work you might ask. yes it will but it will redirect you to the new one causing it to take a little longer to load so you may as well update you bookmarks. anyway thats what I have for now.
So as usual it’s been a while. I’m thinking it’ll be a little easier now that I can blog from my iPhone. A couple things recently; Skyler is getting bigger (as usual) and she is getting smarter. I can’t imagine what she will be like when she is all grown up. She is a great little girl I missed her so much the last few weeks. Continue reading
ok so there are some changes coming soon. The url will be changing soon, and once I get my iPhone I’ll be able to update a lot better, no more waiting to get home and what not. The address change will be about 2 weeks or so we will see I’m working on getting everything squared away. The new address? What is it going to be you ask??? well thats easy: www.theencode.wordpress.org/default.wiki.htmpl.aspx?isc=gdbb15
ok remember that its not too hard. What you cant remember that? Well how about I make it a little easier.
ok look for it soon.
