I want to post more here, now just need to get the gumption up. Time will tell.
I got some pictures back the other day and wanted to put them put up, hopefully
this will get to continue to post here on a regular basis.
Here are the two pictures I want to start with, The first is Grant at the seashore
and the other one is one of our plum tree after only two years. Needs a good pruning
this winter and next year we need to thin it some, too much fruit this year. Click on
pictures to see a bigger version.

Keeping in the spirit of Jerry Pournelle I saw an opera on Sunday, The Magic
Flute by Mozart. This was a different interpretation in that it was sung in
english. Not sure if the original has this or not but this version also had
a fair number of spoken parts and Mozart was character in this opera who
talked about what was going on and other chit chat. This did have a great
benefit in keeping the kids interested. Both boys came with us and they made
it through the entire 3 hour show without any fussing. That pretty tells you
that it was well done. Enjoyable.
The past few days has been mostly work and kids. On my home box I am compiling
up the lastest KDE. Sure takes a while, someday I will have a better box
or now I get by with a dual processor pentium II 333. Works well enough.
