Entry for September 24, 2007 part 2

September 24, 2007

We will have near record highs here today. Autumn is my favorite season, and it is slow in arriving this year.

More pictures: In the “Cars” collection, look for Keeneland Concours d’Elegance and Talladega SuperSpeedway. Under “Railroading” look for the Indiana Railway Museum.

Ohio State and Kentucky are still undefeated, four games into the season. Ohio State had no trouble with Northwestern. More impressive was Kentucky’s 42-29 win at Arkansas.

The Cats fell behind 20-7 at one point, then scored twice to take a 21-20 lead. That score held for awhile, until Arkansas scored a safety and then ran back the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown and a 29-21 lead. But it was all UK after that. Kentucky’s offense has looked good all season, and now the Cats are showing some defensive prowess to go along with it.

There are some new pictures on my Flickr page. In the Railroading collection, look for the Greater Cincinnati Garden Railway Society, and in the Lighthouses collection, look for the Celina Lighthouse.

Hi Luan!

September 19, 2007

I got a note from an old work associate of mine named Luan, but I can’t reply to him. Luan, if you see this, send me another note with an e-mail address I can use to contact you. It will be great to hear from you again. It’s been a long time!

Kentucky defeated Louisville Saturday night for the first time since 2002. The final score of 40-34 was as expected as both teams have quite capable offenses. It was the first win over a Top-10 team since October 1, 1977. The Cats go on the road for the first time this Saturday at Arkansas.

Ohio State was behind Washington 7-3 at halftime, but ended up leaving Seattle with a 33-14 victory.

30th Class Reunion at OSU

September 11, 2007

On Friday, I got to see some guys I graduated from Ohio State with, as well as a couple professors I had while there. I also took a tour of the High Voltage lab, and the Center for Automotive Research. It was the first time I had attended any kind of reunion, and really enjoyed myself.

Of course, I also got some visiting time with my niece and four nephews. Bonnie couldn’t go with me on this trip, and it felt kind of strange going by myself.

Ohio State and Kentucky both won. Both will have major tests this weekend as Louisville comes to Lexington, and Ohio State goes to Seattle to play Washington.

I uploaded still more pictures Monday night.

There is a new collection called “Covered Bridges”. We have only visited two of them but over time we plan to see a lot more.

Under “Miscellaneous” there are a bunch of pictures from the Aviation Museum of Kentucky.

I operated a lot of CW (Morse code) over the weekend, including some nice ragchews. I also operated the Michigan QRP Club QSO Party last night. All these contacts were made with me running 5 watts.

The college football season is already off to a bizarre start with Michigan losing to Appalachian State. Ohio State and Kentucky were both big winners.
