A bunch of random stuff

We all had a very good time at the concert last night; it was nice to take a few moments out of a busy holiday season to enjoy good music and family. There were several impressive portions of the concert – two of which were an 11 year old violinist and the St. Andrew Society. The St. Andrew Society featured some 12-14 bagpipes and another 12-14 drums. We were sitting in the very front row, so being less than 10 feet from their very intense sound was absolutely amazing.

At the concert Ana and I ran into our highschool physics teacher, Mrs. Langford, and learned that she’ll be retiring at the end of this school year. She’s not sure what she’ll do with her time off, but it will probably include some particle physics research in St. Louis. Her research sounds very intriguing and I hope to hear more about it in the future.

On another note, Ana has finished the quilt for her grandmother and is delivering it to her today. She spent the last 18 awake hours hand sewing on it so that it would be completed by today and it looks great. Congratulations Ana!

Today we are heading to Champaign to catch the Illinois vs. Valparaiso basketball game, should be a lot of fun and we’ll probably be picking up some BW3s while we are there.

As you may have noticed, I have disabled comments for the time being. I tried enabling them again for a short time yesterday but was again flooded with spam. Hopefully the next release or so of Serendipity will have better/working spam protection. Who knows, I’m just tired of the crap.
