Ipad update:

  • A week with the new IPAD – what did I do before I had a working tablet? I like to take notes on conference calls and during events. Mostly because people forget what they say and when you send post meeting notes it reminds them. Also because its hard to say I didn’t say that when it is in black and white (or blue and white) in front of you.
  • I’ve been using my new IPAD to take notes for a week now. Pretty nice device for note taking. Like the windows tablet/OneNote experience its nice to be able to mix media when creating notes as well. My inability to hold a tablet to take video is the only limiter there.

Quest Update:

  • On track for 3.5 million steps this week. Goal is 4 million, and then who knows.
  • 2400 blogs posted this week, heading towards 2500 posts. I am over 50% posts to days now. (since 2005 – I started the first few months blogging two-three times a month.).
  • 6 new podcasts posted this year. 2 more coming in April. One of my old students (that I still email with) asked me for a new Fred and Ed story. They are having their first child and want to share those stories with their new baby. Kind of cool…

Random Thoughts:

  • IU played well Friday but ran into a team with more young talent.
  • Injuries heading into or during the NCAA really hurts teams.
  • Nice to make it to the final 16 teams – justifies our seeding and final season rankings.
  • Cherry blossoms are gorgeous but what a mess
  • sometimes you have to stray from the beaten path.

Poor Barb got home at 7 pm and had to make dinner last night. I couldn’t get out of bed. I was alternately hot and cold all night long. I am not sure what I did to deserve this disease but I am now officially over it. This morning I tried to get out of bed and couldn’t so I went back to bed called in sick and stayed in bed until noon.

I crawled downstairs because the need to blog outweighs just about everything. Although I suspect that is more insanity on my part than anything.

Hopefully tomorrow brings more health and less coughing.

For now, I am crawling back to bed.

Change and what does it really mean…

What does your word mean?

It is a question that haunts me. I’ve considered it over the years and frankly I don’t have a good answer. I don’t have an answer I can live with is what I actually should say. People are sometimes so bound by “what” they say they forget the impact and reality of “what” is heard.  I have struggled with this for many years. Its not about honesty. Its about integrity. Standing up for the things you say or owning the reality if it falls apart.

In the end it makes me sad.

Got two “final bills” from the old house yesterday. It made me miss Indiana for a brief moment. We went back over the holidays and it was nice to be back where it all started. Bloomington is such a vibrant city. I don’t miss Greenwood as much as I do the Indiana of my childhood. But then you always have to wonder do you really miss the place or do you actually miss your childhood?

The more things change, the more you miss when they didn’t change.

I do miss seeing more than 3 IU Basketball games a year. That remains my most treasured childhood team. I saw and rooted for IU as they won 3 national championships and made it to the final game one time (losing to Maryland funny how irony works).
