Tigers game

We went to see the Tiger's play yesterday. We ended up borrowing a van so that all six of us could go in one vehicle. The game itself was a rout which puts a damper on things no matter what side that you are on. Plus, it rained a lot which brought things down further. However, they were able to get the game in and Brandon Inge had a good game so that was something. Plus, it was fun to go to a game as a group instead of just a couple of us.

Updated MovableType

I finally updated MovableType to something that is not quite so horribly out of date. I'm not sure I did it right since I was in a hurry but everything works well enough for my purposes. Where well enough is defined as at all. :-)

The real challenge now is to come up with something worth writing about.

Computer Club alumni dinner

The Computer Club of Western Michigan University held an alumni dinner. Matt and I drove down together and got a chance to see some old friends from college. It had been a while since I had been able to do anything like this so it was fun to get out.

Henry rode a two wheeler

Henry finally road a two-wheeler unassisted. The funny part is that Melissa and I could find no way to motivate him. He would try a few times and than declare he couldn't do it. I have never understood why he gives up so easily on things. What did it take to motivate him? The blonde girl next door. :-) It seems when she got it in her head to teach him to ride a two-wheeler he was all kinds of motivated. He's got plenty of practicing to do but it looks like family bike rides are finally on the horizon. I note this so that in five or ten years I can tease him about it mercilessly. :-)

Lost in the Future

Tonight was fun. My brother and I went to see Lost in the Future at the Wealthy Theater. It is an independent film that was done by someone from my home town. It was pretty good and hopefully he'll get a chance to show it to a wider audience. Although, watching it reminded me that all to often how good or bad something is, doesn't really matter. It is more important that you have access to the machine.

The true highlight was the appearance of the Old Blue. The 1985 Chevy Custom Deluxe that I drove in High School and is still driven occasionally by my brother. It is too bad it did not have a larger role. I suppose it would have stole the movie so they had to limit it. :-)

Rockwell Reunion in Cadillac

We went up to the Rockwell reunion in Cadillac. Apparently, Melissa's dad's mom was a Rockwell. Many of the people were staying at the Cadillac Sands all weekend but we just went up for the main event. It was a lot of fun for the kids to run around and what not. One nice thing about the timing was that their 50th anniversary celebrations were going on that weekend so there was a bunch of stuff to do outside of just the reunion. Unfortunately, Melissa had to sleep through part of it because she worked a third shift the night before. There was a pig roast in the evening that was apparently very good but we ended up skipping it and leaving early. The timing with Melissa's schedule was just not going to cooperate.

However, dinner was not a failure. On the way home we found a place called Da Dawg House Restaurant. They had a pretty good menu but we went with the Coney dogs and some chili cheese fries. It may not have been the healthiest option but it was very tasty.
