I've just gotten word that the picture of the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco shown above is being included in the Schmap guide to California. While there is no monetary compensation for this it's cool that my picture is being included. The Schmap guide is an online travel guide. The homepage is here, and the page with my picture is here.
Spring night. Before class started on Thursday night I spent some time watching these little guys practice. The uniform shirts were too big, they were missing as many balls as they stopped and they were having a blast!
This pasque flower sits at the end of our front walk. I really love it's look. Unfortunately it is truly a Spring flower. It blooms for about a week and then is done until next year. In finding the link to the information about it I discovered that it's the state flower of South Dakota and the provincial flower of Manitoba. (And I think my picture is nicer than the one on the listing at wikipedia.) Another picture of it is here.
On the plaza in front of the hotel near where I work in.
(I'm having a lot of fun with my new camera, though I still need to figure out all of it's features. Work is still nuts, the conference for the users group that I'm president of is in less than 2 weeks and the summer softball league season starts in less than 2 weeks. So, if you don't hear much from me you'll know why.)
