Charles Case

Last week at this time we were in Decatur spending our last moments with my wife's grandfather. His name: Charles Case. He passed away at around 2:00 AM, last Friday morning.
Here are some photos of Charles throughout his life.

Clocktower at Union Station

In St. Louis, Mo:

They are repairing the clocktower at Union Station. It looks like a massive undertaking. Here are some shots of the work. I did not have a lot of time to take photographs in St. Louis since I was ready to get back home. But here is a couple in case you are interested.

San Diego Model at the Vistor Center

I stopped by the visitor center in downtown San Diego. They had this interesting model of the entire San Diego city. I took photos to share with you.

This long building is the Convention Center where my conference was held. I was told it is almost a mile long from one end to the other. It had a great view of the water.

In this shot I tried to get a shot of a building in Seaport Village, next to one of the modern Hotels in San Diego.

Green Shark

I went to Sea World while in San Diego. I took a picture of a shark. It looked better on the Camera than when I loaded it to the computer. So I used Photoshop and here is what I came up with.

DST update

I think we are good! I am going back to bed.

Daily Haiku 3/11/2007

The time change causes
discombobulation. I
am one hour late.

DST is coming!

I am awake at 1:00 AM. Why? I am waiting for the time change so that I can check systems at work to make sure everything is running ok. Fun stuff, huh?

Hall of Justice

Remember the cartoon called the Super Friends? Didn't they meet in the "Hall of Justice"? Or was that the JLA or Justice League of America?

I found one here in San Diego.
