Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Best $20 I’ve Spent in a While

I took the family kayaking on Town Lake today.

We paddled past groups of turtles basking in the sunlight. We watched egrets fishing in the shallows and a Guinea Fowl chasing pigeons off its “turf” on the bank. A blue heron glided past, a few feet from us. And we were accosted by two, extremely hopeful, swans.

All in the space of an hour, literally a stone’s throw from downtown Austin.
