Enjoying the new fire pit that Kristin made May 5 2008

fire pit

We were doing some shopping for a fire pit but didn’t find one that we really liked. We decided to hold off on buying one, and then when we got home we realized we had enough bricks that we could just build our own. Our first use of it was lovely, just like sitting around a campfire.

They performed to a packed house (standing room only) and did a great job. Their polished sound including drums, vibraphone and bass impressed everyone present.

RSS2.com "Down for Maintenance" screen on Flickr.
Today, as we were working on speeding up RSS2.com SQL queries and also repairing the database, I had the opportunity to make a quick little "down for maintenance" screen.

Thankfully the server wasn’t down for too long, and it’s running well now.

Walking through snowy Tower Grove Park in St. Louis, MO at night Dec 17 2007

Early morning dog walk in Tower Grove Park. At 15ร‚ยบ F it was pretty chilly, but I bundled up pretty well and was warm the whole time.

A good trick I figured out for taking long exposure pictures in the snow is to take a glove, put it on the snow and rest the camera on it. This protects the camera from direct contact with the snow and also gives a handy solid base to get a steady shot.

Some more good shots:
