Why I Won't Be Supporting Fred Thompson

Sun, 09/09/2007 - 12:37 -- rhelwig

A good friend of mine noticed that I support Ron Paul for President. He asked me what I thought of Fred Thompson. Now for most people I'd either ignore them or give them a quick answer. However, this guy is intelligent, thoughtful, and worth giving a more complete answer. So I did some research on Fred Thompson. Here's why I won't be supporting him.

Building a Hobbit Hole in Grafton

Mon, 09/03/2007 - 10:16 -- rhelwig

My roommate Anthony and I went up to Grafton to help Kat and Russell work on their new home. We hadn't seen it before, and all we knew was that they are building it using the 'rammed earth' technique. When we showed up, Lloyd, Mike(?), and the family had just started working on digging the trenches for the foundation and using the dirt to level off the area. Anthony and I started helping just about the time they all went off for lunch.

Surprise Visit

After taking Otis for a walk this morning, the people that I bought the land from dropped by for a surprise visit. I gave them a tour of the place, and we talked a bit. I had been meaning to invite them to visit, but never got around to it.

RAID is good!

Thu, 07/12/2007 - 19:16 -- rhelwig

The laptop has been flaking out the last week or so. This afternoon it crashed and on reboot I got an error message. The system just wouldn't reboot.

Thankfully, I got it with a RAID setup. After removing one of the hard drives, I'm back to work.

Otis likes children

Wed, 07/11/2007 - 17:01 -- rhelwig

Otis and I attended the CNHT picnic this last weekend. There were quite a few people and several children. Luckily, the puppies in attendance captured most of his attention.

OK, he hasn't actually eaten one yet, but he's trying!

Of course, Ron Paul earned most of the votes in the straw poll. Mike Huckabee did show up though, and Duncan Hunter phoned in a speech.

First Produce

First Radishes: These are the very first radishes that came out of my garden.

The first radishes from my garden were pretty good. Click on the pic for the larger version. I put the stick of butter there for easy size comparison.
