Mechanics is hard!

He has some idea that the gears need to be touching each other to spin. Unfortunately, he doesn't understand that if you wedge three gears together they don't spin any more. The other big problem is some gears have spinny parts and non-spinny parts. And he doesn't quite get the idea that it's the spinny parts that need to be touching.

The boys on Saturday morning

I am about to leave for the dog show. Why do I have a feeling the three of them will spend the whole day on the couch in their pajamas?

Nick and Sarah in Little Yosemite area of Sunol. They think it's very acceptable.

Best toy ever, apparently!

So good, in fact, that I could not get him to stop for lunch. So as most engineers, he chose to eat lunch at his desk.

Where are all the cute pictures?

In a fit of coding desire, I decided to build this website. It got written up in Front and Finish newsgroup (main dog training magazine), and I got hit with a wave of visits. Now instead of posting pictures of Nick and dogs, I spend my time answering emails and fixing bugs. Dogs, kid, husband etc are all neglected. Oops.

Back from Greece

Squeak is back from his grand trans-Atlantic adventure. He ate souvlaki, went to coffee shops, visited ancient ruins, and was constantly entertained by large numbers of relatives. He says it was all very acceptable. His parents say thank you Steve Jobs for the iPad that made the flight there and back almost pleasant.

Best picture from the trip by far is this:
My people, I promise you I will finish building
this temple!

The rest of the photos are here.
