Hello, (This info was written 9/1/2001...)
I saw some very cool live journals kept by various friends and got interested in setting one up. I found that the journals were very interesting reading! This type of forum seems more condusive to exploration and building of friendships than elists and websites. This seems to be a year for finding new cool things on the net - Right now I'm listening to Doll Factory (I like them). I would have never heard of them except that I recently discovered I think I am in music heaven. All the stuff they never play on the radio (and may never play). I think I'm going to be busy for a while...

2003: The nature of this world is Transience... yet there must be something real, something that lasts. Perhaps it is hinted at in the beauty of Words.

July 14, 1919 - April 8, 2003
Travel well, dad.

2004: I like biking in the park. This means I should probably at some point buy a bicycle.
Update: Wellp, I inherited a bicycle. Now the next step is learning to ride it. This can be done, really it can.

2005: You know, 65 degrees Farenheit is way too warm for January...
Update: Wellp, Eyovah's bike got stolen. Probably because I wasn't using it... He did say nothing was to be kept unless it was used.
Update: It was the attack of the zombie bathroom.
Update: We started having another Thresholds in the Fall and smaller get-togethers every other week. Things are good.

January 2006: Ha Ha! Joke's on me! Try 80 degrees Farenheit.
Update: Wellp, I got another bicycle. This time it's a pretty blue girl's bike. So far it's still being repaired. Hopefully I'll actually ride this one!
July 2006: It's repaired, has been for a long time. I have not ridden it yet. I will stop waiting to go to the park. We no longer have the van. I'll ride it tonight, on the bike path.
Oh, and now, it's the attack of the zombie roof. Ducky.
The good news is, I rode my bike for the first time on July 7, 2006. There's no stopping me now.

January 2007: 50 degrees. Today though (January 15) it's 63 degrees F. Isn't it supposed to be getting colder rather than warmer? It's January... Hello? Earth to January? Come in please? We still don't copy.... Signal interference, perhaps... January?
Connor CoryPope was born at 1:49 p.m. on January 16, 2007. He is 8 lbs. 14 oz. and 20".
March 2007. There was a horrible fire in Colorado. A friend was hurt. He is recovering. The family is househunting. We are all recovering now.
May 2007. Our friend has recovered. We are all very thankful for that.

A beautiful soul has left us for the Elysian fields, where she dances in eternal springtime. Until we meet again, mom. September 24, 1917 - April 12, 2007

Halloween 2007. Marriage.

2007 summary: birth, fire, death, marriage.

January 9, 2008: 70 degrees. The poles are melting. So, tell me. Is this "Just El Nino"? Should I just ignore it? Is it "Bad Science"? On second thought, don't say a word. I will just continue to record the temperature in early January, once per year.

September 5, 2008: We got land!

November 30 2008: Our beehive died. On the bright side, it is cold. Cold enough to kill insects (including mosquitoes). So I can't complain too much. We'll look into better sheltering next year.

January 2, 2009 - about 35 degrees F. Yay!

March 4, 2009 - More cold weather - a lot of cold weather this winter! Went down to a wind chill of -5 a couple of times, snowed a couple of times. Not a whole lot, but ... it snowed! And it got cold! Maybe the fleas and mosquitoes died. I can hope.

April 25, 2009 - 100 degrees F. Ok. We were doing pretty well, here. It's ok to goof up just this once, but from now on, April, I need you to be around 70-80 degrees, ok?

June 11, 2009 - Spooky's fur has grown back. I thought she had a fea bite allergy, but no amount of medicine or flea treatment would make her skin better. Then I started feeding her wet food (Evo gluten free). All the scabs disappeared from her skin. Her fur is thick and glossy and her weight is perfect.

December 19, 2009 - It was the Great Blizzard of 2009! We haven't reached 2003 proportions yet, during which two storms hit back to back, but it was 20 inches in some places!
