A Shower of Ideas

Thursday, November 6th, 2003
Have you ever noticed that you tend to have your best ideas when you are least able to collect them adequately?

For me, this often happens when I'm in the shower.  Five years ago I set up various capture devices throughout my offices & home, including -- you guessed it -- the bathroom.

A shower of ideas - I'm always ready to capture a great idea. (Digital whiteboard coming soon!)

Despite my introductory statement, I did not stop having good ideas now that I had the means to record them.  I DID find that I no longer lost the ideas.  I don't want to give the impression that I intentionally use my bathroom/shower as my brainstorming center, however it sure is nice to be able to capture the ideas at the point of thought.  

I can now say that many of my best ideas have come -- and been captured or elaborated upon -- while shaving or in the shower.

Kindergarten Crush

Like many people, I had crush on the Kindergarten teacher in room 19.

Unlike most of you, however, I did something about it... I proposed to her.

She said yes.


Mr. Freeze pays a visit

Tuesday, November 4th, 2003

We have had quite a cold snap lately.

Here's a graph from my WeatherCam that shows the temperature last night. A brisk 24 degrees. Brrrr.

I guess it's time to defrost the freezer and move the contents outside. No sense paying for electricty when I can get a deep freeze on my back deck for free. :-)
