Beginning of a New Week

23 04 2012

I love Mondays! Must be a geek thing. When I was a kid I couldn’t wait for the start of the summer holidays but within a week I was wanting to go back to school. I think this is a feeling that only geeks really had (we used to be called nerds…sheesh). I was lucky in that I was a math/science geek and my parents encouraged that. My friends well remember the chemistry and microscopes I had as a kid. They were adult grade (back in the days when chemistry sets had real chemicals in them!) and I had a blast all summer with my various projects (Think Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory….without homeland security butting into matters).
Now I look forward to the start of the work week. Because I work for myself, I spend Mondays looking for new projects to start. I love the thrill of it. Building websites, writing articles. It’s great fun and I get paid for it as well! Yay me!
Sunday wouldn’t be Sunday if I didn’t spend at least a part of it on Facebook and Twitter. If you are looking for new friends for:
Gardens of Time
Blackwood and Bell
Astrogarden
Flowershop

Where do you live?

12 02 2010

A question out there for fellow Techno-Geeks: Where do you live?

No, I don’t mean your address (I’m not some whacked out cyber-stalker) I mean your general geographic location. Now if you want to include you city, that’s great. I’m interested in the type of place you live, the geology, climate urban v/s rural…..that kind of thing.  Here is what I’m looking for, I’ll use myself as an example:

I live in a small rural town in extreme southern Illinois. The population of my town is roughly 8,000 (during the autumn festival and on Sundays during church). I’m about 1 1/2 hours from St. Louis, Missouri.

Here are a couple of photos of my local area:

I’ve actually been known to write from the hump of the camel above using my laptop and 3G.
