Please excuse the mess. I'm in the process of moving to a new server and new blogging software. It'll be a while before this place gets to be looking like normal again.

I've been away from the blogging for a while.

I was thinking about changing blogging software, but then I started having server problems and thought they might be related to the new software, so I took it out. That still didn't fix the server problems, but I don't feel like re-installing again, so I'll stick with this for a while longer. I just updated to a new version of WordPress today and it looks like some of the images are missing. That's okay, I was thinking it was time for a change anyway.

I second shot with K & R Photography a few weeks ago. Here are a few of the images from that shoot:

There's a bunch of stuff happening with Chris' job, but I think I'll leave that for another post on another day.

dogs

I realized a few people (mainly my mom) may be worried about a gold dog I twittered about taking to the vet this morning. So I figured I'd write a quick update.

Some of you may remember 2 years ago, Cisco was not quite himself for a month or two over the summer. We ran all sorts of test on him. I think the vet might have been more worried about him than I was -- kept him for an entire day, did an ekg, x-rays, blood work, blood work, and more blood work. We never did find out the cause, but he did eventually get better.

Well, it started happening again. I started seeing the same signs and was wavering between, I'm over-reacting/he's probably just finally settling down and he's getting sick again. Chris said if I was worried I should go ahead and take him in.

Yup, pretty much the same symptoms as two years ago (just not as bad) -- it happened about the same time of year too. After lots of poking and prodding, and questions, blood drawn, chest x-rays, etc. We have a possible diagnosis: his allergies may be causing some exercise induced asthma. And his chest x-rays show a bronchial infection. Based on his x-rays, the vet said if he wasn't in as good of shape as he is, he would appear a lot sicker instead of just tired and mopey.

Good news, Cisco doesn't have to stop running, but he'll probably never be an olympian either.

tech

I probably should have blogged about this a few months ago when everyone else was doing it but as usual, I'm behind.

Let me introduce the few readers I have to Ficlets which was written by two guys I am fortunate enough to work with.

What is a ficlet? It's short story written in 1024 characters or less. It's a great site for anyone who enjoys writing or wants to improve their writing. The site offers inspiration in the form of pictures or words -- or you can use someone else's ficlet as a source of inspiration and write a prequel or sequel to it. If you're not a writer, I encourage you to go and read what people are writing. Some of the stories are really good.

Not convinced? You can listen to Kevin talk about. Kevin's passion and enthusiasm is contagious.
