Well, it has been a very busy last couple of weeks.  I helped him pack up the pickup and the Uhaul trailer and we headed west.  After a couple of failed attempts, we finally got on the road last Tuesday afternoon.  That is a story in itself, but maybe another time.:)

After driving through sun, clouds, rain, fog, sleet, snow, and wind, we finally got to his new place last Thursday night.  Both of us were exhausted.  Got everything unloaded and then we both crashed.  Friday was spent doing some rearranging and then Saturday afternoon, we headed for San Francisco.  Unfortunately, the trip took longer then either of us expected and so we didn't get to the city until 9:00 pm.  At least Sunday was a beautiful day, bright sunshine and very warm.

I was very pleased when Keith, of Keith Cam Live, agreed to meet us for lunch.  Yes, we went to Keith's favorite place, Pasta Pomodoro.  It was very good food and the sights were nice too.

Keith is a great guy and just as kind and gracious in person as he is on his site.  I had hoped to meet with Peter of PecJock, but he had already made other plans out of town.  Maybe next time.

After a little sight seeing on Sunday and Monday morning, it was off to the airport and a flight back to KC.

It is going to take some time to get used to living alone again, but at least I have this to keep me busy;.  Speaking of this, as you can see, the new home of Spudpuppy's Place has been born.  Keep checking back, I hope to do a lot more with this site, now that it is no longer a "personal homepage".

And, I turned 41 last week.

Well, the roommate is now in his new place in California. We made it in last night. What a way to spend a birthday. Yep, I'm now in my 40's, instead of just being 40. Oh well, I guess I just have to enjoy it. I don't feel 41, so why should I let it bother me.

We are going to head into San Francisco, tomorrow. Spend a couple of days there before I fly back to KC on Monday. If you are in SF, let me know, maybe we can get together for a drink. :)

Happy St Patrick's Day.  Big news of the week.  I just registered the new domain name, so very shortly this will really be Spudpuppy's Place.  WWW.SPUDPUPPYSPLACE.COM  I'll let everyone know when the new location has been set up.

Other big news.  The roommate was supposed to have left middle of the week, this past week, for his new life in California.  He still hasn't started the trip.  So, today, he asked if I would help him drive out this next week and then fly back.  So, I guess I'm California bound for a few days.  I guess I'll have to get down to San Francisco for a day or two and see if I can meet up with anyone.

I will have the laptop and the digital camera with me while I'm gone, so there is a possibility, I will be able to check messages and maybe broadcast while I'm on the road.

Well, took the last road trip with the roommate, yesterday.  Went with him to Wichita to visit his relatives one last time before he leaves for California.  Looks like he will be leaving sooner then he originally planned, probably Thursday or Friday.

Got the java remote cam working, so now you have a choice, java or java-script.  Looking at a couple of chat clients, so I hope to have a chatroom installed soon.  Make it easier to communicate, rather than only using ICQ and email.

Decided to add a news page to let everyone know what is going on.  I'll update it as things happen, but probably at least once a week.

Current happenings.  Well, the roommate moves a week from Saturday, so I'll be living alone again.  It will be a little strange, but I've lived alone before, so I'll get used to it again.  It is funny how accustomed you get to having someone else around.  Definitely makes the place seem empty when they move on.  He's following his dreams and taking a job in California.  I hope everything works out for him and wish him the best of luck.  Other than that, life is pretty much the same.
