July - End of Month Rant

I haven't written anything of too much substance this month.  So let's see what I can pull out of my butt right here.

First off, I added two new albums to the [Flickr] page.  The first is a long over due album from Skylar's birthday celebration in May.  The photos were taken with the Sony T-1, before I got my Nikon:

I'll need to go down and take some more photos of the kids, as well as Scott and Stefanie.  The other album added was during a Yahoo! Music on the Green.  The artist who was performing was [Brandi Carlile]  She did a fine job.  I'm not particularly happy with the photos I took of the event, wishing I was more aggressive, but that is something I need to work on.

This weekend not much happened.  Today Farrah and I tried the new [Lori's Diner] in Cupertino.    We had a late lunch.  The service was a little slow.  Farrah ordered the Chicken Fried Steak (good) and I had the Southern Fried Chicken (good as well).  Our waitress did notice that our orders were taking a bit long, as the dreaded 'large party ahead of you' was getting all the service.  So she gave us dessert for free!  We enjoyed a nice hot fudge sundae for a nice summer's day.

I also managed to finish season one of 24, watching it because Bert and Evan couldn't stop talking about it!?!?!?  Overall, season one was a satisfying season.  The characters and storyline does make me want to continue onto the next series, so season two of 24 is in my Netflix queue.

What else?  Well, a site update when sour when I tried to upgrade the Gallery application used for the site photos page.  I'm still recovering from that because I didn't have a 'latest backup' of the web site.  This should teach me to back up every week!  So those photos will be inaccessible for a while.

I guess that is it for now.  I'm going to head to bed.
