Boston 1775

Boston 1775

Garrett (my oldest son) and I put together a large map of 1775 Boston for his presentation at school this week (with help from FedEx Office, Wikipedia, and Photoshop). “It is June 1775,” he begins. “We’ve been under siege here in Boston for two months.”

Pocket 391

Pocket 391

I had a blast from the past when someone starred this tweet from 3½ years ago:

7 March 2013 — 7:41 PM
I read all my Instapaper list on my SFO->MCO flight today. Based on recommendations from friends, I’m finally going to give @Pocket a try.

I reached “Instapaper Zero” that day and switched to Pocket. I still add to or read from Pocket every day.I’m currently at “Pocket 391″, but I’m actively working on it with a burn-down chart now.

The Game

The Game

I’ve really been enjoying playing the solo/coöperative game The Game over the last few weeks — especially with Beth Sobel’s beautiful Textile reskin. I finally played all 98 cards and won this morning!

World’s Fair 1893 at Unpub 6

I played World’s Fair 1893 with Alex (the game designer) for the first time in real life this weekend at Unpub 6. (We played it a lot during development, but only online through Roll20.)

LEGO Space Needle

LEGO Space Needle

I love Seattle, and I love LEGOs. So the LEGO Space Needle that my wife and son got me was a perfect birthday gift. My son and I had a great time building it over the weekend. (He’s gotten quite good at building with LEGOs and following instructions, and I love that he sticks his tongue out when he focuses.)

Mount Hood Above The Clouds

Mount Hood Above The Clouds

Leaving Portland International Airport (PDX) this afternoon, we had a great view of the peak of (I believe) Mount Hood above the clouds from the airplane.

Moon Pics

Moon Pics

I took pictures of the moon (most) every day during the lunar cycle July 2-July 30. I’ll soon be posting the whole gallery, and I’ll later be writing up something about the moon and its phases. This is the picture I took July 29 at 6:00 AM, as the waning crescent rose just ahead of the sun.
