Amazing that gardens could return to that area of campus. We had gardens there before the loop road was built for many years in the mid to late 70's. I tended one individually and with a friend for a number of years.
 It was a nice lunchtime activity and we got a surprising amount of produce out of a small 10x20 plot.
One of our co-workers in the old CLS group was a farmer so he plowed up the areas between Johnson and Little and the area that is now the road around the energy facility. There was a well from the old Ellis(?) home place that was in the woods near the back of Little that was used to water at times.
I might be interested in a plot again if this comes to pass.

Thank you Roger for the history of the garden here. It is encouraging to hear that you had a good turn out.  Stay tuned.

I'm pretty sure that the carpentry crew thinks we designed a roof line that would cause them nightmares. The top beam will be over 20 feet up.

It'll be interesting to see how it comes together.

Seems to be that Speaker for the Dead would make a better movie than Ender's Game. There would be a lot more room for interesting animations of the aliens.

Just as long as they could fix the end of Children of the Mind.

There is a great sponsorship opportunity for organizations, bloggers, and individuals interested in the NCDevCon conference in Raleigh, NC in September. There are a number of levels explained on the on-line sponsor guide.

Please note that the early bird rate is only good through the first 60 registrants. Come join us for another great event in 2012.

This is a great event here in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina.
 
Going to the Full Frame documentary film festival in Durham this weekend - Michael Moore is back this year, though without a new film. Looking forward to seeing Ross McElwee (Sherman's March, Bright Leaves) again and his new film. http://www.fullframefest.org/

Any thoughts on Ivy Bridge CPU systems vs. Sandy Bridge CPUs?

My Google+ pages consistently lose the up and down arrows after using G+ for a while. I can get them back with a hard refresh, but losing them is annoying. Sometimes, fancy Javascript is not the best way to produce a page.

More interesting ideas from the NCDevCon conference organizers. Developers close to Raleigh, NC should consider joining us for another fun conference in September 2012.

No! Don't tell them about the South! We are all hillbillies and will shoot you or play banjo to you. Stay up North! Somebody do something before we are overwhelmed with yankees! Er...to late. :)

Lovely, weird tunes this morning.
 
http://cbrtune.in - The Weird & Wonderful Cover Tunes Pre-Show started early today. Love this show. Join Bob Silverberg for unique covers such as "Dump - That Skinny Motherf^&*er with the High Voice? - 1999" :P Then new music with Vitamin Sweet at 10am Eastern, and of course The 80sRewind Show at 1pm.

Developer in many languages, archaic to modern, easy to hard. ColdFusion to Clojure. FORTRAN to C to Visual Basic to whatever looks interesting. Woodturner, birder, cook, and gardener. Anyone who things I speak for my employer here is a moron.
The restaurant has a great location in North Hills and is attached to a nice hotel. It isn't for the average night out as it can be very expensive. For business meals or special occasions it would be great. The portions are good, but entrees do not include anything extra like a salad. You can easily run up a $100 tab for two if you enjoy a glass of wine, an appetizer, entree, and dessert so be prepared for that. The service is usually top notch. The dining room is noisy so don't look at this as a romantic place. The outside patio is next to an entrance road so I wouldn't recommend that area. I would say that it isn't the best value for Italian food in the RTP area, but the food is very good. It is a once in a while place for me.

My choice for eastern European groceries and deli meats in the RTP area. I haven't really found anything else like it. It is very convenient to people who work in the RTP area.

I took my Honda Accord there for years with excellent service. They would drive me to work and come get me later. Other times I would sit for a while for inspection or lube and get to work quickly afterward. I have a Tacoma now and I don't even think about going somewhere else. They are very friendly and competent. They explain things well and seem to care about their work. I recommend them highly.

Good sushi, fast service, quick for work day lunch. This is my regular choice for sushi near RTP. They really get the idea of the workday lunch as you get in, eat, and pay in an efficient way.

I have had pants hemmed up at Wang's. They did a great job and turned them around in a couple of days. I will definitely use them again in the future. Pants hemming is the only thing that I have had them do, but I wouldn't feel anxious about having them do other types of work when I need something else.
