Random thoughts

Ok, so I know I stole this from Krista, but it's a good site for my crafting buddies. Impressions

Other news. No rain today so we actually made some progress! Yippee....funny thing was it was thwarted by some Connecticut rain we apparently imported inside our instruments. Apparently they weren't really waterproof like they said. Oops. No worry, the ever prepared girl scout had a spare.

Speaking of the girl scouts. They have some fun games if you're really bored and looking for entertainment here

My mandala is here:

Feeling Deprived

How come I never took a family vacation here?

More Progress!

More progress! Ok, so it's pretty simple, and just a basic start page but it's still progress. Click Here

Other news. Broke my own rule and actually stepped foot in Texas again today. Remembered why I said I wouldn't do that again :). But in all seriousness El Paso wasn't that bad some cool antique shops and I finally got a colored juicer!

Uh Oh...I don't have anything interesting to say

Since my last post it has been brought to my attention that others are actually reading my blog. Hi Mom! Suddenly I am very concerned that I have nothing interesting to say and that I am boring the heck out of everyone out there. My days here in rainy New Mexico consist mainly of lamenting the rain. We can't get to the equipment because the roads to the farm are dirt and therefore now mud. In the fieldwork lull I started to take a look at that pesky dissertation thing and found out my data is wrong. Yesterday I discovered that there is TV in the house (I thought it had been turned off), and have since become a TV junkie.....oh yea, I might go golfing tomorrow! Check out Krista's blog she has an interesting post about a monkey that need a name.

Trying out google adsense

I don't know I got conned into it...Who knows maybe I'll make some money. What do I have to loose right? It's not like anyone actually reads this blog except Krista!

Hail and sun?

I just witnessed the oddest weather event ever! I'm sitting at the kitchen table and there are windows to the left and right. To the left, I see blue skies and sun. To the right. HAIL. Actually hail. Enough to make the ground white for all of 10 minutes. Now everything is sunny! What is the deal with New Mexico?

must see photos

These photos are a must see, but not for those with too much compassion. They will make you sad.

Another online clock

Who knew these things were so popular.
Who has enough time on their hands to draw a clock out like this?

And the laser fires on

Brief scare today when the laser decided not to fire...But I kicked it's butt back to working. I'm a bit bummed there was promise of warmer weather on this trip, but Iowa is butt cold and apparently it's not customary for hotels here to have hot water. Is it too late to rethink this trip?

Safe and sound

Hi Everyone!

Quick update. Dr. Miller and I are safe and sound at the Iowa House hotel on the lovely campus at the University of Iowa. The last forty miles across Ohio were a killer, but Indiana and Illinois flew right by, and before I knew it here we were! I'll be here for another week and then back in the van and off to New Mexico. I'm looking forward to the warmth.
