Sanitary demise

Apparently, infants wheeze less in homes with multiple dogs. No, we're not going to get another dog... but it does tend to validate my theory that we're supposed to eat the mud pies... not avoid them.

This anti-bacterial, anti-dust, Purel coated bubble world we're living in is not actually condusive to long term good health.

Eat the dirt my boy, it will put hairs on your chest.

No Battlestar

Grrrr. No Battlestar makes Stephen go something something....

Go Crazy? Don't mind if I do!


The Windsor trip went well. Had a good time at the symposium. Photos of Windor are on flickr.

There was not really much to see. It's an industrial town, and the weather was grey and overcast. I took a walk down Dieppe Park by the Detroit River. The park was part of a greening project the city did, and had lots of war memorials, green spaces, and a few things to see. The Detroit skyline is very striking, particularly the GM building.
The water was green and the air was smelly and grey. Perhaps it's because I was just back from the beautiful city of Boston, but Windsor didn't seem to hold any charms for me.

Back from Boston

I had a nice afternoon strolling a few kilometers around Boston on Monday afternoon. I was in town for a workshop hosted by the Digital Library Federation regarding their Services Framework Working group. I'll probably blog more on that over at Enterprise Abstraction.

Boston is a moden city, but it seems to have managed to keep it's culture. Old combines with new in interesting ways. Modern towers dwarf older, interesting, architecture. There was something new around every corner. The public gardens were particularly beautiful, I think I managed to visit at just about the right time to get the full colours.

I managed to capture over 100 images in about 3 hours, many of which can be seen in my Flickr set. A few samples are posted here.
