  • Tyler’s First Joke

    Tyler told his first joke: Q: Why did the cow cross the road? A: To go to the mooovies!

  • Sketches

    The spiral eyes is part of his unique style.

  • Amtrak

    I’m writing this on the train ride from hell on the way home from a three day trip to Boston. I thought I’d be clever and take Amtrak because their high speed Acela trains have electric outlets so while viewing the New England coastline slip by I could catch up on my email backlog. Little […]

  • Jury Duty

    My number’s finally come up – I’ve been summoned to appear at the Mercer County Court House to serve as a Petit Juror.

  • Julia

    Thank you for the kind card Richard & Diedre!

  • Honda Cog

    Honda Cog

    I just can’t get over how amazing Honda’s “cog” commercial has been. It’s got to be one of the most linked to sites around, 2 minutes of pure analog fun. I read this took 600 takes to get it right.

  • Cruise Missile

    Amazing what folks can build in their garage these days. A fellow in New Zealand built a cruise missile which is certainly interesting but not really useful unless you have a serious grudge. I prefer the 100 lbs thrust pulse jet which has links to instructions on how to attachit to your go kart.

  • Philly

    We spent the day in Philadelphia today which is easier to get in and out of than NYC. Saw a children’s play at the Please Touch Museum and then caught a few laps of the USPRO Wachovia Classic cycling race. Later in the evening, our little hamlet put on lessons in Square Dancing in the […]

  • Hawaii

    Just got back from a week’s holiday in Hawaii where we met up with Izumi’s parents. Absolutely wonderful break from the craziness of work. Swam every day with the kids and flew (and lost) a kite with Tyler. Tiki torches at twilight, tropical fish and dolphins at the hotel lagoon.
