Katie and I just drove back into town from an awesome weekend with the Dalings. Had a blast with their dog (who has some obvious problems...he is NOT thirsty here), getting the tour of Broad Ripple, hanging out with the folks @ Midtown Vineyard, seeing Beyer's old stomping grounds @ Butler, and being called a liar and a cheater by Mike in a game of dominos (be patient with him, he is working on how to deal with his anger).
Also, picked up a sweet book when Mike took us to Big Hat Books, that I hope to read through and review later. The last part of our trip was quite tragic. Katie and I had been excited for weeks about the opportunity for us to frequent Sonic while we were in Indy (You will notice that their website lists several Indianapolis locations here).
However, because he is sick and sadistic, Mike chose one very special Sonic location to take Katie and I to...yeah, the one that is no longer open. Not like closed for Sunday. CLOSED. CLOSED FOREVER. Thanks Mike, we really appreciate it.
Besides that, we had an absolute blast! Thanks to the Dalings for MAD hospitality! Thanks for giving up your bed and letting us wreck your home for the weekend. Thanks especially to Jamie who shared some super encouraging words with Katie and I (and claimed that we made her nauseated, or the words did, or something related to me made her nauseated...not sure). As for Micah, Katie and I will be forever indebted to him for his tireless efforts on Shark Patrol and the countless hours he puts into Dino Tracking. You guys are the best-- thanks for everything!
I used to scan Allelon from time to time, but haven't checked things there lately. Someone recently pointed me back to their site and I noticed a five-part interview with Roxburgh Here in their leadership section. I've been trying to find a copy of his book, Crossing Bridges, but haven't had much success.
All Together Now
If you enjoy scanning the news from all your favorite sites at once, Safari RSS lets you aggregate feeds easily. Create a folder of your frequently viewed RSS feeds from a single window, then browse everything from technology sites to entertainment sites in one cleanly formatted page. Think of it as creating your very own online newspaper, complete with different editorial departments.
When I read things, I get so much more out of them...
Since I have told a bunch of you about RSS and getting a good News Reader (like NetNewsWire, if you're a mac user), I thought I would also point you toward The Top 100 RSS Feeds as far as subscriptions go.
This makes me really excited to see the new Safari which hosts its own RSS reader. The only problem with the new Safari, however, is that it doesn't appear to work like an aggregator (though I know you can search Syndicate feeds).
