How sad... the USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) is leaving Yokosuka, to be decommissioned at Bremerton. She's served for 47 (!) years and is the last conventionally-powered aircraft carrier in the US fleet.

Other news of interest to me... once again my alma mater is making me proud! The University of Arizona ® is leading the Phoenix Mars Lander mission. Way to go UA!

I attended the Hillsboro Symphony concert tonight. It was a Pirate theme (yes!) and the special guests were Cap'n Slappy and Ol' Chumbucket, founders of Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept. 19th!). It was really a lot of fun, and a pretty full house too!

My apologies for not blogging more often ... life has been busy! Choir tour in less than 6 weeks! Eeep. I'm all paid up for that except for some incidental costs that we don't have a total for yet. I'm very excited.

From the Oregonian -- Intel starts to think outside the cube. Fortunately I was only in a cube for the first 6 or 7 months I was at Intel, then I moved into our lab once the remodeling was done. Still, the new pilot (it's called TWWW, The Way We Work) is... interesting. Some people seem to really like it, others hate it.
