Sunrise

Image
November 20, 2017. The time changed while I was flying back from China with the result that now i see the sunrise when I get up in the morning (it's also dark when I drive home). Easy Monday; got a bunch of newsletter bounces cleared off the books, caught up on email, made some small contributions to IEEE groups, and wrote a short article.

Cat in a Box

November 19, 2017. Where would we be without cat photos? Quiet Sunday indoors paying bills and catching up on paperwork. Snow and cold outside. This is Alex in the box in my office. http://ift.tt/2B00flA

Geranium Bloom

Image
November 18, 2017. It didn't take long for or indoor geraniums to throw out the first bloom. Nice inspiration as we're having a blast of winter weather this weekend. Managed email and played No Man's Sky for a while. Spent some time on the spin bike, first time in a while (have to get into the winter cycling routine so it's not such an uphill climb in the spring). http://ift.tt/2ja1UNY

Lexi on the Rail

Image
November 17, 2017. Lexi is completely comfortable on the railing despite the ten foot drop to one side. Short meeting this morning and puttering for the rest of the day. Did some work on data modelling. Accomplishments: - wrote Four Conclusions on OERs http://ift.tt/2zWa7gS

Costco

Image
November 16, 2017. What significant about this photo isn't that it's Costco, it's that it's the first photo shot with my new mobile phone. Andrea and I both got new Samsung S7s - I know, last year's model, but an excellent phone, and easier on our budget. Kudos to the salesperson in the Costco both who was a master at what he does, leaving me with the impression that I had more after meeting him than I did before we met. http://ift.tt/2yRTiCi

Watering Can

November 15, 2017. Caught up on email today and wrote an article. Also admired the geraniums. This is a watering can we bought a while ago from Ikea for 75 cents. I love the design. Accomplishments: - wrote The Real Goal of Open Educational Resources http://ift.tt/2iZsCcl
