Today we completed our new dining set for the eat-in kitchen. The room is fairly small, so I planned on a table for two. The base is a cast iron bistro table stand (intended for restaurants) that I ordered online. The 32″ table top was fabricated from a tan brown granite remnant by Flemington Granite. [...]

After spending a few months bonding with my Nokia N85, I now feel comfortable providing a follow-up review of the phone. It’s good news: the honeymoon is not over. Overall I am impressed with the quality of the phone itself, as well as the quality of pictures and video. And the OLED screen still elicits [...]

Totally awesome. The above sums up how I describe my new cell phone, the latest electronic toy added to our menagerie. After  years of merely getting by with a free Motorola Razr, I am now living large with a Nokia N85. As with most Nokia phones worth owning, the N85 is not available from AT & T. It can be [...]

For stop-motion films, just about any subject can be entertaining in stop-motion, but in limited quantities. Harping on the same location or subject for a long period of [...]

Since the beginning of Summer into early Fall, I’ve been compiling photos shot continuously during travel on numerous modes of transportation. All the photos were batch processed in Adobe Lightroom before being imported into NLE software. All the photos were taken on a high resolution digital camera versus my standard DV cam, allowing me to [...]

Just in case anybody managed to miss this when it was in the news last year. Sebastian the Persian cat was given two gold crowns to protect his bottom canine teeth, which protrude from his mouth due to a severe underbite. This was done because his owner, a dentist, wanted to protect the teeth, and [...]

Somehow in early April we find ourselves shivering in near-freezing temperatures. Just thought I’d share a few cute pictures of Bode dressed for the weather.

The elevator in Roger Adams Laboratory has graffiti written all over it, some tidbits more intellectual than others. For example, “Elevator Tennis Look Left” and “Elevator Tennis Look Right” on opposing walls, “chemistry stinks,” and so on. If you are, or have ever been a graduate student, you should find this one particularly amusing (click [...]
