Gone Coding

Sorry folks, some time-critical items have been dropped into my lap and I need to address them today.

Make yours a great day.

    A memory from The FaceBook:
    “John Grimsley

    Congratulations to Paulie (InsideThe Perimeter) for winning FIRST PLACE at the Roswell Photographic Society monthly review. Way to go ITP!”

    Paulie, can you dig up that photo?

      From the ITP blog archives (2/22/2010):

      “Color Me Surprised
      Dear Penthouse,
      I never thought this would happen to me.

      Last night I attended the monthly photo critique of the Roswell Photographic Society. The theme this month was “Movement/Motion” and when I was stymied to find new and interesting takes on this theme I reluctantly submitted a shot of a girl swinging on a swing last May.

      There were over thirty entries in the “digital” category last night, many of which were quiet good, and a handful of which were either just “okay” or contained such overplayed subject matters like water in a stream.

      By the time the night’s critic got to mine she had already gushed over a photo titled “Spin the Bottle” which was a well-executed shot of a spinning Coca-Cola bottle; I was certain that it would take First Place in the digital category. The reviewer seemed to like my shot, praising it on its technical merit as well as commenting that it captured emotion in addition to motion.

      As we all stood in the lobby waiting for the critic to make her placement decisions some people praised my shot, which understandably made me proud.

      The results were then announced, each category — only “digital” and “color print” last evening — would have four Honorable Mentions and one each of Third Place, Second Place, and First Place. I was somewhat pleased to not see my photos in the Honorable Mention category as that was where I expected it to land if it were to take any place at all. Third Place was not mine either. When the Coca-Cola bottle was show as the Second Place winner, I couldn’t believe it. And then my photo was shown as the First Place winner in the digital category.

      The monetary reward for this victory combined with the two quarters I keep in my car were able to get me through the GA400 toll booth (which is only $0.50 for those unfamiliar with Atlanta) but the victory sure made the long drive home a lot more fun. 😀 ”

      I *think* this is the shot (from Paulie’s flickr stream):

    I’m hoping this is for a job interview?
    yes – let’s see the picture!

    went to dinner with the in-laws last night -Allan helped then with more big, heavy, ackward something. They had never been to the Delkwood Grill – figured since Rocco’s closed, they would like this place.
    Funny part of the evening, the place was pretty crowded (which hasn’t beent he norm other times we’ve been there)- they have a Cribbage group that comes in & plays on Tuesday nights. I do not know how to play, but one of the players sitting near us told me its not too hard to learn. My brother loves to play, and, as I learned on the Book of Faces last night, so do a few other friends of mine.

    Hoping this is a job interview emergency! Fingers crossed.

    My evening was spent replacing equipment and running some tests. which as far as I know went very well. I feel pretty confident, as my connection I’m typing on is through that upgraded equipment and as long as I can see the blog, it must have worked!!

    A Quick driving tour before starting to head north to Nashville. I haven’t been to their new location… only been 5 years? Wow, how time flees!


  4. Hi! Yes, it is. Not going great, but giving it the old college try!

    That is the photo, Ham. Funny, I was just thinking about it the other day…

    Barb, I was a Cribbage shutout too. I remember watching my brother and father play, but I never was taught. Pity. For awhile I played on an iPad against a computer, but I’ll be damned if I remember the rules — a lot about counting to 15…

    Okay kids, I need a shower to cleanse my mind and then it’s back to the grind.

    • Barb says:

      I’m sure if I’d ever ask, someone would teach me cribbage. I’ve just never really thought about it, was always busy doing something else.

  5. Howdy all, checking in again.

    I am midway through my “mind cleansing” portion of today. I have put in an hour at the gym, am currently doing laundry, and will be eating dinner at Lucky’s in Brookhaven after this.

    Once I am done with dinner I will head home and write the assignment that I will be submitting. Hopefully I will be done by 11pm so I can pack up clothes into the M6 for an early departure tomorrow.

    Busiest unemployed person I know…
