Rainy Day Aftermath

I'm a little behind on the blogging, but finally got this picture uploaded. This picture was taken 30 June 2007 on a bike ride that Dada and I took on one of the rare sunny days we've had since mid May. We are on the hike-and-bike trail looking at the raging torrent that is Town Lake.

Town Lake (recently renamed Lady Bird Lake) is normally a placid lake with dams at both ends, but on this day it was a raging torrent due to the need to release as much water as possible from the lakes upstream (Town Lake is one in a series of flood control and water containment lakes along the Colorado River.

I don't think anyone had seen it moving quite this fast before, certainly not since the dam broke back around the turn of the last century.

For no particular reason we convinced Dada to go with three ponytails for going to school. Here is the result.

New Job for Eliot

The picture has nothing to do with this post, but I didn't want to post without a picture. The picture was taken with Dada's KidTough Fisher-Price camera, which was a gift from her Grandpa when he visited last weekend.

Anyway, this last Monday I started a new job with a new company. I am now employed by Really Strategies, Inc., systems integration services and content management product company based in Norristown, PA (which Judy tells me is the ancestral home of some of our ancestors, who were apparently somewhat big wheels back in the day).

Anyway, I'll be doing more or less what I have been. I'll be working from home and traveling to clients and whatnot. I've got myself set up with a cozy little home office in the music room, shiny new computer and whatnot.

The new company is quite small, about 20 full-time employees plus a separate development organization based in Guangzhou, China. Everyone seems really nice and motivated and it looks like it should be fun, interesting work.
