Made 3 quarts of nice dark roux tonight for my gumbo booth at the Cobb Country Relay for Life this Friday. Come by Jim Miller park to see me, have some fun, and have some damn good gumbo!

We have a wildlife camera set up in a creek that runs through our yard. It recently captured this video of a coyote walking by.

I'm guessing I'm one of the very few husbands whose (ex-zookeeper) wife regaled him as he dressed for work this morning with pictures and descriptions of the odor and color of bear poop varieties. Thank you very much Irena for giving her that book on tracking.

Yesterday enjoyed shuttling guests & presenters for the Atlanta Skeptics Star Party to celebrate astronomy & raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Delightful, intelligent & gracious passengers. Conversation while wallowing in traffic made it seem we were trading ideas, and good stories in a moving, albeit slowly, coffee house. Star Party itself: good food & drink, fun & interesting lectures– GREAT evening.

Came home planning to dive into homework with the kids and found Alex (10) Socratically helping Robin (8) with her problems. He would ask her questions to help her discover the solutions. He was paitent and thoughtful in his questions. She was grateful and cooperative with his guidance. WOW! They didn't even need me.

Pew Internet reports that email, along with search, remains in the top two most popular online activities. Particularly interesting is their finding that young adults are very email active with the age group of 18-29 reporting a higher percentage of users who access email on a daily basis than all older age ranges.

Devised a new game for the kids (and parents) at the pool this weekend. It's pretty much the same as Ultimate (Frisbee game) played with a pool torpedo instead of a disk. For those who don't know what Ultimate is, it's also similar to soccer. We've been playing it for the last few days. It's great exercise, especially when the play moves into the deep end, and lots of fun. The kids like it and the adults do to. Currently we're calling it Ballistic.

I've still got a couple of rules to work out like how to do a "jump-ball" but it has lots of potential.
