Henry’s school musical program this semester had him and four other fours dress up as 17th and 18th-century composers and serve as emcees. He got picked to be Joseph Hadyn. Not a bad facsimile if you ask me:  

Yes, it’s worth it.

I’ve had my iPhone for a week now and I can report that yes, it’s pretty much worth the investment. The two things other have cited as drawbacks — slow downloads when not on a Wi-Fi network and quickly drained battery — are true, but are more of a minor annoyance than dealbreaker. The convenience […]

Happy Birthday to Me … and my iPhone

So, now Sara and I have His & Her iPhones. I should be posting this directly from mine, but I’ll wait until someone comes up with an external keyboard for it. It’s true — I succumbed to the tech temptation and got an iPhone for my b-day. It pretty much lives up to the hype, […]

Tech Temptation

Stevie gave his keynote today at Macworld 2008 and I had been waiting to hear what’s in store with respect to the iPhone so that I might make one a birthday gift to self or continue to hold out for rev. 2. Well, no 3G or even bigger storage space was announced, so I might […]

Halftime is over; the second semester begins. And it began with thunderclaps–no, not applause from appreciative students, but real live loud thunder. Nashville had some pretty big storms after abnormally high temperatures the past few days. We were actually under a tornado watch this afternoon. In any case, the first day of classes in the […]

Christmas officially ends today, the Ephipany. Your twelve days of presents from your true love is over (which, according to NPR would have cost you around $78,000 this year). We are going to take down our Christmas tree and decorations today, but not before setting up the German wooden nativity scene for an Epiphany photo […]

The 2008 Makeover

As you (whoever you is) have noticed I decided that Goyablog needed a makeover. I really liked the previous look, but the new year requires a new look. So here it is. This is a WordPress theme created by Lisa Sabin-Wilson and modified by Goyaboy. I like the open clean look and its photo-friendly format. […]

She’s done!

Woo hoo! Well, at least Sara’s manuscript is printed and sent. And as far as we are concerned, that’s good enough for now. We’ll worry about correcting proofs and doing an index later. We actually stayed up late on January 4th (her b-day) to print it out and we did it with 18 minutes to […]
