This is the longest time I’ve gone between posts since I started this blog (which, astoundingly, was over a year ago). Well, I’m not dead, and life goes on. So…what have I been up to and/or thinking about? In no particular order:

  1. It’s been approximately 10,000 °F here in Nebraska for the past 3 weeks; however, this weather pattern should finally break this evening.
  2. Sampled wine at James Arthur Vineyards with Henry and Clay on Saturday; we then went on to watch Sideways afterwards.
  3. Canoed the Niobrara River around Valentine (with Lincoln, Henry, and Meagan) July 16-17. If I had remembered to take my camera along, there would be pictures for you to look at.
  4. Saw Gaelic Storm at July Jamm. You should buy one of their albums.
  5. Brewed and bottled: 5 gallons of Belgian witbier. It’ll be peaking just in time for entry at the Nebraska State Fair.
  6. I know how to eat with chopsticks. My parents didn’t know I could do so before Friday.
  7. Nearly every time I walk around downtown Lincoln, I think about how a greedy algorithm determines how I can walk from place to place in a (mostly) optimal manner.
