My oldest friends, Cait & Ryan, stopped by for our (somewhat) regular monday night dinner party. The menu included sun-dried tomato, basil, feta frittata; sauteed aspargus; and banana bread.

Cradle of life

It's only taken me 3 months to get my photos together from my Kilimanjaro hike and safari.

Not enough to snowboard & enough to impair travel - welcome to spring.


I was doing a bit of spring cleaning yesterday and found some clothes & records that took me back to my angstful years. I still listen to the records once in a while - thanks to Dan's turntable donation when I was 14.

Leaders of a peace conference, hosted in South Africa, seem to have forgotten the whole apartheid thing...

My The North Face Met5 jacket broke again - the heated torso panels no longer worked when the batteries were fully charged. I sent the jacket back to TNF in January for warranty repair. They are no longer manufacturing the Met5 jacket - maybe the technology was too bleeding edge...

Anyways, I just received a gift card for the full price of the jacket thanks to TNF's lifetime warranty!

Burning hair

Note to self: do not put your head into a 900F annealing oven without a hat to cover your vertically-inclined hair...

Before I head back to Reno, we went for a little hike this morning. Most of the areas above 9000ft have a 10 - 15ft base.
