My brother Sean and I went up to Baltimore last Sunday to see the Ravens play. We had a great time and it was all thanks to our good friend George Johnson, who provided the hard-to-get tickets. Here's a picture of the USF Constellation, tied up in the Inner Harbor. It's a beautiful ship, and you can read more about it here.

Currently the sun is bombarding our planet with clouds of electromagnetic plasma. There may be a good chance of seeing auroras even as far south as beautiful Ashburn. I'll be outside tonight to see what can be seen.
If I can stay awake, that is.

We had a gorgeous sunrise this morning here in Ashburn. Click on the little picture to see a bigger one.

Comments are now working! It was easy. I only had to learn another computer language to do it.
Perl is pretty neat, so it wasn't a waste of time. The problem, if you are interested, was that my ISP's setup of Perl has a problem. The template module returns an error, which causes a server error 500. So please, if you feel the urge, comment away on my scribblings.
Accept my apologies, Faithful Reader, for yet again taking a while to update my blog. The past couple of weeks have been filled with work, of course. I've also been honing my web skills, by taking a Dreamweaver course and by teaching myself Perl. I hope to be able to use these skills to make this a better site. I'm still trying to learn how to get that comment module to work. I might be better off writing my own now. I've also been reading Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson, a huge book that is taxing even my speed-reading capabilities.
In short, stay tuned for more.

My beautiful wife did a presentation this morning at a nursing seminar
on gestational diabetes. I was really impressed with her professional
delivery. She did a great job. The organizers were surprised that
this was her first time giving a presentation to so many people, and
they want her to come back and do it again. I covertly snapped a
picture of her (though I couldn’t have been that covert,
since I was the only male within a half mile of the conference room.)
