My home town made the trivia! If you ever find yourself in St. Louis, the Arch is worth seeing. Yes, it’s a St. Louis cliche, but it’s also a beautiful piece of sculpture. There’s a documentary you can see in the museum under the Arch that is totally worth seeing, too.

And Happy Friday, too! I can’t believe another Friday has rolled around already. Enjoy it.

Happy Friday guys!

I’m are heading to Mexico (via San Francisco) in 10 days for much needed holiday! I figure if I work 7 days a week for several months, then take a month off, it’s the equivalent of taking all my weekends at once. So I’m trying to finish off my work but we’re also having some friends over today for a barbecue (grill). We haven’t used our barbecue in 2 years so hopefully there’s no wild things living in it.

What a productive weekend. I’ve been through a pretty busy period with work, and many non-essential work activities have been put off for months. I spent a good chunk of Saturday and most of Sunday afternoon working in my office. Archived job files, freed up 60 gig on my internal hard drive, organized client files, organized work samples, and pitched / recycled / shredded everything I possibly could. For someone like me that likes things neat and organized, that’s a good weekend.

We spent the weekend at Busch Gardens in Virginia, which at this time of year puts on its “Howl-O-Scream” garb. I didn’t expect it, but while we were there, I found yet another use for zip ties. It seems stuffed werewolves use them to avoid falling out of trees.

LOL…nothing worse than jumping out of a tree to grab your prey and you forget to cut those ties … that’s gonna leave a mark :wink:

So where exactly were you during the last full moon? Was there a night or two where the details the next day seemed a little fuzzy? Any mysterious bits of fur around the house or large, muddy dog tracks leading up to your front door? Just wondering.

With playing in the garden and two cats, I have the muddy tracks and mysterious bits of fur covered.
