[Links: Fans of the Tucson based pyrotechnic theatre group Flam Chen will be happy to know that their website is up with lots of pictures, background info, movie clips, and generally fun stuff.
Note: bandwidth on their movie links seems a bit constrained, so to avoid the start/stop/start effect I'd recommend pressing play on a movie clip, then immediately pause it and let it continue to buffer/download completely, and then press play to play the whole thing without annoying pauses... In their movie section, the video clip from the All Souls Procession 2008 and the Helium Promo are good starting points. Whoever did their website did a great job, be sure to check out the entry page to their site, too.]

I saw a solitary deer walking along the loop road. We made eye contact and were both momentarily relieved to see other warm prey in the area, given the number of mountain lion warning signs.

Even in the dormant winter months, colors linger from summertime.

A few more new_to_me things this past week:
#5: I had to have new brake pads installed on my car; I took advantage of the dealer's WiFi access in their lounge to use my laptop -- I got a lot done in the three hours I waited and it was a more efficient use of time than leaving and coming back later. I'd do this again.
#6: I actually completed my Federal & State taxes in January. That's a new_to_me item for sure. I've been trying to get things like that out of the way and behind me as I get ready to focus on the challenges and opportunities soon to come.
#7: update: I forgot about this one, I also joined Facebook to connect with a few friends and relatives, figure out what its all about, and maybe make a few new friends.
Ok, back to Sunday chores, hopefully a quick bike ride around the neighborhood, and then off to Craig & Jane's annual Superbowl party.
