A Little Inspiration

The following inspirational message comes from this site.

Ice Cube Dream

I stumbled upon the picture yesterday on Reddit, one of my favorite websites as of recent. It is a decent source for news as well as that very special randomness generated by the great provider of the modern era, Ye Olde Internets.

All silliness aside, I do think it is good to keep on dreaming.

Bozeman Hailstorm

Jul 23rd 2008 — Bozeman,Montana — 9:25 am

Yesterday in Bozeman we had a couple of short but serious storms. In summer the weather around here is typically dry but yesterday was an exception.

I had my camera for the 2nd storm.

This was right before the serious stuff started. I realized I should get my camera and by the time I ran inside and came out again things had already changed dramatically. Hailing in Bozeman Hail on the Driveway Hail on the Grass Clouds on the Bridger Mountains A field after the storm

These were all taken the same day as the previous post, but unlike the previous post they are not in chronological order.

Lawdy, Rebecca’s in Yellowstone

Jul 14th 2008 — Family,National Parks,Yellowstone — 4:23 pm

My sister Rebecca and her boyfriend Scott came to visit me. It was a most excellent time.

Here are some pictures of their first full day here. We drove down to Yellowstone.

Rebecca and Scott at Upper Mammoth Terrace Some cool blue color at Upper Mammoth Terrace My wonderful sister Rebecca Rebecca wading in the river around lunchtime. Scott’s Extreme Close-up I put pictures of this guy up a few weeks ago. I called it Scalloped Spring but that is not the right name. I don’t know what the right name is. I am a big fan of the raised walkway. It keeps the landscape pristine. The fact that you might break through and get scalded if you try to walk on the thin surface at Upper Geyser Basin does a lot to keep the tourists in line as well. A view of Upper Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park It was warm and we were out in the sun for a while. Being indoors was a welcome change. Rebecca eating strawberry ice cream Scope out the phatty couches at this place. I think it might be the Yellowstone Lodge. We watched Old Faithful from indoors eating ice cream. The best way to experience it, in my humble opinion.

The Adventure Cycling Association

Jul 8th 2008 — Biking,Missoula,Montana — 4:51 pm

I am a firm believer that the bicycle is one of the greatest inventions ever.

It was a pleasant surprise to stumble upon the Adventure Cycling Association in Missoula, which seems to exist solely for the purpose of promoting bicycle touring, one of the best ways to travel possible.

There were a lot of fun pictures on the wall of people doing tours who stopped by and ended up having their pictures taken, so I did the ol’ take a picture of a picture. Hopefully they are big enough here to see whats going on.

Ah yes, bicycle transportation, no war required.

Moving Day

Jul 2nd 2008 — Asheville,Bozeman — 9:53 pm

After having a very carefree beginning of the summer with lots of time to take and post pictures, this week has found yours truly both starting to teach summer school and being the only person responsible for the de-cluttering and subsequent cleaning for a landlord’s inspection of a 5 bedroom house that has spent 3 years being a free for all.

Today was supposed to be the end of my residence at 1320 S 6th Ave all but the inspector person didn’t show up. ( actually 4 days ago was the original plan but things keep coming up).

The point is 7 hours of scrubbing starts to get to you.

Another point is don’t fill your abode with a bunch of crap you don’t actually want/need because one day you (or your roommate) might have to move it.
