Saturday: Got a haircut Saturday morning. Went to Half-Price Books (one of the good things in Texas) and picked up […]

Fall in Houston

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

It’s finally chilly here in the mornings. No, really, I actually saw my breath while walking to my truck this morning. This weather will only last a couple months before it’s back to hot and sweaty spring again, but I am going to enjoy it while I can. -Dave

The interesting part of the evening happened when I left the concert venue. I was surrounded by crowds of yee-hawing Texans, screaming about the Astros winning the play-offs. Pick-up trucks […]

Jonathan Rothberg, a scientist who has developed, among other things, an efficient way to sequence the human genome using fireflies and a microchip, posed that […]

NASA in Houston

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Uncategorized

Here’s an interesting photo of the Mission Control room of NASA in Houston, Texas. This room is no longer used to to monitor space shuttle missions and the international space station, however, we DID get a tour of the actual mission control with the help of Jason, who happens to work at NASA. It amazes […]

  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?
  • Kevin David Anderson: check out our other wreaths at: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150452725264516.391111.360128594515&type=3
  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)
