Is This Thing Still On?

Date March 20, 2011

Abruptly and unexpectedly, we sorta’ stopped posting since, er, January. That was driven by a mix of things, all of which come down to, “Not enough hours in the day…” I have been keeping up with my professional blog, which is good for what it does, but not of interest to most people reading this blog. I also got pulled into building some shelves for our basement, and that sucked down a number of multi-hour pockets of time that could have been devoted to this.

We’re not thinking this blog will go away, though.

With that, here are a few pictures from the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin, Ohio.

Our kids enjoyed the experience:

And, after the parade, while letting the traffic disperse , we wandered over to check out the Scioto (SIGH-oh-toe) River as it flowed through town — with a lot of heavy rain of late, we were curious as to how high and how fast it was flowing. We wound up with a rare sighting: all three of our kids actually smiling while in close proximity to each other and posing for the camera:

Hopefully, more posts to come. We’ve got a two-week stint with a range of picture-taking opportunities. More to come on that!

    First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!|掲示板}

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
