Still Here!

Sorry for such a long silence on the blog -- I really miss it and hope to be back sooner than later.

Life has been busy since mid-April with work, the changing economy, etc.

HUGE changes with my full-time job -- too much to go into and boring to most I am sure.

Thanks for understanding, I will try to blog again soon.


  1. Glad life is slowing down for you Chris! We missed the blog.

  2. CoCoRaHS Day is coming up! :)

  3. Looks like it is turning to the dry period again in TN. Hope it's not like last year for the farmer's sake.

  4. Last evening (6-28), we went to an outdoor showing of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Local businesses paid for the showing and provided grilled hotdogs and hamburgers, soda, water, and M&Ms for the families that watched from a grassy hillside. We sat in lawn chairs, some with little kids sprawled on blankets. The humidity was up there but as 9pm approached, we got a nice breeze and it was quite pleasant. I missed the beginning of the movie however, because a big black cloud to my left began to flicker with interior lightning. It was far enough away that we didn't hear the thunder. I seriously wondered if we should pick up our chairs and leave. This being lightning awareness week, I had read the description of how lightning forms in a cloud and how it also strikes the ground some distance from the cloud. The cloud was on the horizon and the rest of the sky was clear. Once I spotted the big dipper and North Star, I realized that this storm would likely track northeast and not approach our location in Prince Frederick, MD. No one else seemed a bit worried about this spectacular light show on the horizon, so we remained to enjoy the movie. Such is small-town living.
