This last Sunday my brother, Doug Stuart, had a serious bicycle accident in Pocatello, Idaho. Since then he has been in the hospital in Idaho Falls, where they will be performing an operation next Monday to fuse vertebrae in his neck. I am going out to Idaho tomorrow to be with him. His son, Chris, […]

The Pitts

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Pat and I just got back from visiting the Pitts in Preeceville, Saskatchewan. It is an 800 mile drive, each way, so this was not a causal undertaking. But, they are now much closer than when they lived in British Columbia. While we were spending 5 days with them, I took very few photos, but […]

Mounds View Football

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

This morning I was up at Mounds View High School photographing a junior varsity football game against Forest Lake. Last night the Mounds View varsity soundly defeated Forest Lake, and it might have been natural to expect a win in the JV game as well. It doesn’t always work that way. Mounds View scored early […]

Cross Country

Friday, October 10th, 2008

I haven’t shot much cross country this fall, but this afternoon I went up to Stacy to shoot the conference meet. Neither the Mounds View boys or girls teams are strong this year, but it was a really nice afternoon. Photos from today can be seen at my cross country photos web site.

Readin’

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

I recently finished a book by David Lindley: Uncertainty – Einstein, Heisenberg, Bohr, and the Struggle for the Soul of Science I found the book quite interesting, as it allowed me not only to better understand the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, but also a bunch of other things. For example, Robert Brown discovered what became known […]

This afternoon I was up at Mounds View to photograph a sophomore football game against Robbinsdale Armstrong. Mounds View was leading 28-0 at half time, when I had to leave to go to a meeting of the North Oaks Home Owners Association. Better photos from today can be seen here.

Palin in Debates

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Today’s NY Times had an article by Katharine Q. Seelye about Sarah Palin’s performance in debates when she was running for governor of Alaska. The gist of the article is that Palin did better in those debates than one might have expected, if one’s opinion had been based on Palin’s performance in recent interviews with […]
