Moving Reflections to COREBlog 2003-10-25 05:55:54

I came across COREBlog today and I like it. I've built a new avatar of Rogers' Reflections with it and will be mostly posting there while I see how well I like it.

MPH Book Store RIP 2003-10-19 00:05:50
By steve

Well, I've finally shaken the bug that got me down on the fight over. I walked to the historic MPH (Malaysian Publishing House) building, expecting to browse the extensive collection that the MPH Book Store has offered in the past. Sad to say, it's no longer with us. Some sort of training institution is occupying the space now and I directed to a smaller MPH Book Store. Not much of a selection, but a found a book by Alvin and Heidi Toffler that I hadn't read, Powershift . The clerk directed me to the Kinokuniya Book Store on Orchard Road. I walked there to check it out and have lunch, finding Computational Intelligence so I should be set for reading material.

Singapore 2003-10-14 13:40:40

I made it to Singapore, but this hasn't been one of my better travel experiences. While getting to Singapore from Denver is, in theory, easier than getting here from OKC, my original flight out of Denver was canceled. I was booked on a later flight, but my luggage missed one of the tight connections that resulted. Something I ate before departure seems to have disagreed with me and I was ill the entire trip. I spent yesterday recovering and buying things to get by on until my bag arrived.

Longmont 2003-10-11 13:10:23

It's been a busy week in Longmont, buying a house, lots of meetings and getting ready for an overseas trip. I drove up last Sunday in my Honda S2000 with the top down for the last half of the trip. There's been excellent top down weather all week, though it's beginning to get cooler. Long's Peak had a fresh coating of snow this morning.

Our move to Colorado is nearing, and on Saturday, 20 September we headed west on our house hunting trip. We stopped at Palo Duro Canyon for some sight seeing and hiking. Palo Duro is the second largest canyon in the United States, after the Grand Canyon. While it isn't quite as spectacular as the more famous Arizona landmark, it's worth a visit.

We checked into the Hudspeth House Bed and Breakfast in Canyon, Texas for the night. Canyon is pretty small, but we found a Thai-Chinese restaurant. The Shrimp Pad Thai was quite good.


We arrived Sunday evening at the Raintree Plaza in Longmont, Colorado and met with our realtor, Alyson Canepa on Monday morning. We spent the next three days looking at property from Old Town Longmont to Big Elk Meadows on the West and Berthoud East of I-25. We looked at about thirty properties in all, having a bit of difficulty settling on the right one. I would like to live in the mountains, but while my wife thinks they're beautiful, she'd rather live in town and visit the mountains to play. We drove up to Pinewood Springs at 5 PM one evening to see how the roads are at rush hour (not bad) and had a memorable dinner at Villa Tatra. It was still fairly light when we drove back down, so we didn't get much of a feel for what the roads are like after dark.


We settled on a place in Lyons (pronounced like lions, not the French city), signing a contract on Friday, 26 September. Lyons is a neat little town in the foothills about 15 minutes from Longmont and Boulder and 20 minutes from Rocky Mountain National Park. Our new home will be within walking distance of downtown Lyons, with nice foothills views. All in all, it's a good compromise.

Cedar Crest

On our trip back to Oklahoma, we detoured to the west to spend the night at Elaine's Bed and Breakfast in Cedar Crest, New Mexico. Cedar Crest is in the Sandia Mountains east of Albuquerque and south of Santa Fe. We had a pleasant stay.

Rendering Honors on 11 September 2003 2003-09-19 07:03:00

Forwarded to me by a friend. This is a reminder that, while some in the German government have been less than helpful in our war against the terrorist forces, the Germans remain our friends.

Hello all,

This morning I witnessed another classy and emotional presentation by the German Navy. The FGS NIEDERSACHSEN (F208) who is part of our NATO battle group called us this morning at 8am and asked if they could pass close to Starboard. What we didn't know was that they had their whole crew topside in dress blues rendering honors to the United States for Sept 11th. >From their main mast they flew our flag and they held their covers over their hearts. Needless to say, the whole crew was choked up and a few tears formed in our eyes. Both ships stayed next to each other in silence for about 5 minutes. These are the days that remind me why I joined the Navy.

Back from PyBlosxom 2003-09-19 06:05:10

I've decided that the directory based categorization approach of Blosxom/PyBlosxom is a little too restrictive for me. I've moved back to my Zope based weblog.
