March is at its end.

It was a nice weekend. On Saturday evening, we went up to Vancouver to work on Joy's sister's computer. She had a printer that she'd gotten for free that needed hooked up. They have Qwest DSL, but the HP driver package was almost 350 mb and with their slow DSL, it would have taken about 4 hours to download, so I actually drove back home, downloaded it via our cable modem and back to Vancouver in about 1 hour.

Yesterday, Joy made homemade cinnamon rolls--Yummy! :-)

Today, it's back to work Monday.

More songs to listen to.

I just upgraded my Dell Axim PDA to have an 8 gb CompactFlash memory card, double the size of my earlier 4 gb version. Now I can have all of my songs from my notebook always with me and I still have lots of free space to grow into. [Fry's had a very good price on the card!] My old card is going to be put in Joy's PDA.

It was a nice, relaxing Easter weekend. March is rapidly coming to an end.

Another week is finished--March is half over

Time is still flying pretty fast. March is to the mid point. Next thing you know it'll be summer again!

Last evening, we went to Pleasant Valley Church to get pictures taken by Olan Mills for the church directory. Joy had us wear suits and ties; oh well, it only happens occasionally. I'm glad that I don't have to wear a tie to work. I don't think I could stand that.

Get ready to Spring Forward

Reading about the snow that is still hitting the midwest, makes me glad that we live in Oregon. The crocuses and daffodils are already starting to blossom and I saw some trees in bloom, too. Tonight, we push the clock ahead an hour. I wish that the government would just leave DST in place all year long! This evening, Joy and I are going to Pleasant Valley Church for a fund raising dinner in support of the youth outreach program, Pipeline.

I finished my first full work of week at ARRIS in Beaverton. I'm hearing lots of new terms and acronyms that I need to learn.
