Holiday Party with some Geeks

Posted: December 18, 2007 in Personal

I attended the holiday gathering/December meeting of my local Mac User Group (MUG) here in south central PA. I won’t say the group name on here. It was interesting seeing everyone’s takes on Leopard videos from the Macworld video podcast. The group is not what I expected it to be. I yearn for a real hip New Media focused group in the Central PA area. This group is made of teachers and retirees mostly. Still, I can gain and benefit from everybody’s knowledge. I just long for groups and discussions like those I have heard over in Podcamp. I can’t help but think that I am the only person interested in living this stuff in this area…


Weekend recap

Posted: December 16, 2007 in Personal

Even though it passed by very quickly, this weekend was real productive. Friday had our landscapers fiishing up the retaining wall and steps. The job looks good. Al that is left is to stain the wood in 6-7 months and start thinking about how we want to do the walkway. I had an extra 4 hours to take off of work, so I ran errands like crazy on Friday afternoon. I was in Carlisle, New Cumberland, York, and Camp Hill all within 3 or 4 hours. We grabbed dinner and did some shopping at the mall, which wasn’t as crowded as you would think. (I got there before Patty and Connor so yes I didi go play with the iPhone a little) Connor got to see Santa as you can tell by my Flickr site.

Saturday I spent most of the day working in the yard. ALl of our leaves were in one big pile but never actually got cleaned up. It was frozen leaves and a muddy mess but I got them all bagged. Now it will take forever to get rid of them. Patty tried to go to the PA State high school football championships (her old school got beat) but she got there as everyone was leaving. Saturday night brought on some last minute online shopping.

Sunday was a day full of nothing, for me anyway. Pajamas stayed on most of the day while the area thawed out from the most recent storm. I ended up driving over to the grocery store and everything was white and icy. It looked awesome and I wish I had my camera with me. All during this time, Patty and Connor were busy making Christmas cookies. Then we had Cheesesteaks and watched the Eagles beat the Cowboys. About time!

I will be blogging more as I get more involved with stuff like Seesmic, Twitter, Viddler, etc…
