Good Morning

Hi and welcome to NewHour for Wednesday August 31st. In today's news: Brian Travels to St. Louis, the Calendar Website, and the Quick Commute

Brian Travels to St. Louis

Lisa organized her parent's 40th wedding anniversary and invited me to the midwest. It was a good trip; a little hectic, but good. We didn't have much time for sight seeing, but i enjoyed the company and got to know her parents.

Sunday morning Lisa got me up, despite my cursing, for a long run. 3.5 miles is the longest i've ever run. She continued for 6.5 more miles, a short run for her. In the last quarter mile my right foot became tingly with pins and needles. Since then i've had some pain, but nothing too bad. It's not inflamed, so don't tell me to ice it. Besides i hate icing.

the Calendar Website

I've been working very hard on a new website. It's a calendar for my friends and i to promote events, show our interest in attending this events, and integrate our schedules with our normal calendar software (eg. Sunfire, PDA calendars, Outlook). I've had many, too many, good ideas and my fingers are typing as fast as they can. I'm not going to post the URL yet, because i don't want to be inundated with demands for features that don't exist yet, but will. If you have an interest in helping me with this site, contact me.

The Quick Commute

My commute both yesterday and today were zippy and i think i know why. After crossing the American Legion Memorial Bridge southward, i was surprise to see how fast traffic was flowing. This is usually where it's worst. The bridge itself does not cause congestion, but the exit ramp for Rt. 267 does. The right lane is backed up for a mile. The second lane from the right get backed up too from drivers trying to cut in. Today i noticed that construction is complete. The second lane has been added. There was no backup like usual. This saved 10 minutes from my 40 minute commute.

Home Early

tags: work, commute

Wow it's 4:50pm and i'm home. Would you believe that? Well it's amazing to me as a commuter that usually gets home at 6:30-7:00.

I've been pretty tired from getting to work early (6:30, 7:30) the past two days. But i'm trying not to take a nap.
