Memorial Day Weekend

Tuesday, May 31, 2005 5:54 PM

This past weekend, Andrea and I had a nice relaxing weekend.  On Friday night we had dinner at The Briarwood Inn in Golden, CO for our 4th anniversary. 

Then on Saturday, we drove down to Cañon City to see the Royal Gorge and visit the Winery at Holy Cross Abbey.  The winery is located on the grounds of the Holy Cross Abbey in Cañon City and has some of the best bottle designs I've ever seen.  After visiting the winery, we took a quick tour of the abbey itself.  We then drove out to the Royal Gorge and looked around for a bit, declining to spend the $20 per person ransom to walk across the highest suspension bridge in the world.  We then drove up to Cripple Creek through scenery that reminded me of the Jemez Mountains in New Mexico with the intention of getting dinner.  Finding nothing looking appetizing in Cripple Creek, we ended up driving back up to Denver and having dinner at Hacienda Colorado.

The rest of the weekend we hung out and then went to dinner at my mom's house on Monday night for my cousin Tyler's birthday.  All in all it was a good relaxing weekend.

Weather Info System Tray 1.2 Released

Thursday, May 26, 2005 8:13 PM

Weather Info System Tray 1.2 I've recently wanted a spyware free utility to show the current weather along with any current watches and warnings on the taskbar of my PC. This new application uses the same core as Weather Info below for the Pocket PC to get weather information from weather.com®. Additionally the Weather Info System Tray also displays current watches and warnings from the National Weather Service based on either a state level or an NWS Zone Code (click here to find your zone code). The watches and warnings feature only works for areas covered by the National Weather Service while the rest of the weather data works for any location covered by weather.com®.  Weather Info System Tray 1.2 can be dowloaded from my Other Projects page.

Join Hands Day 2005

Sunday, May 8, 2005 12:45 AM

Join Hands Day 2005 Today I went with a bunch of people from church to help paint the Santa Shop for the Join Hands Day 2005.  We put a new coat of paint on all of the rooms in the Santa Shop where they give out toys to needy children every Christmas.  The day was a great success and the shop looks a ton better now.  Photos are in the Holy Shepherd section of my photo page.
