Happy Hogmanay!

Happy Hogmanay!

December 30, 2001

Auld Lang Syne

It’s hard to believe the year 2002 is almost here. I remember all that “millennium” hype a couple years back - that Y2K problem. Obla-di obla-dah, life’s gone on. Here is Scotland the festivities are for Hogmanay. Over 100,000 people are expected to fill Glasgow’s city centre, particularly George Square, to bring in the new year.

Merry (Belated) Christmas!

I hope y’all had a happy Christmas and a pleasant Boxing Day. Kurt’s arrived safely here in Scotland and we’ve already visited Stirling, Inverness, Loch Ness, and Glen Coe on our whistle-stop tour of the country. Georgia Tech beat Stanford in the Seattle Bowl which brightens my spirits after Dalton lost to Statesboro last Friday.

FYI, I had an absolutely wonderful time in Cambridge and London on Christmas Eve! Christmas day was great as well… and things are looking up for the New Year! And, don’t worry, photos will come…

Who'da thunk it?

Wanna know what I’m doing tonight? Watching my alma mater win the state AAAA football championship! That’s right, even here in Glasgow, I can watch the game via the GPTV website. See, public television isn’t all that bad!

Royal Greetings

Every year Queen Elizabeth II sends out a Christmas message - typically via television, radio, and more recently, the internet. But since she received a mobile phone this past year, it might be possible to receive next year’s royal greeting as a text message!

Christmas Shopping

With just a few shopping days left till Christmas, I still have almost no shopping done. C’est la vie!

Football Friday

Dalton wins 22-3!!! Go Catamounts! Next Friday: the state championship!

School's out!

Bring on Christmas… and Boxing Day… and Hogmanay… and New Year’s!

Tonight, the mighty, mighty Catamounts take on the Paulding Co. Patriots in the Georgia Dome. My prediction: Dalton 24 - Paulding Co. 14. Go Big Red!

Go Catamounts!

Dalton beat Thomson 28-24 in overtime last night to advance to the state semi-finals in the Georgia Dome!

I’ll probably be here in the architecture studio most of the weekend since my final presentation is Tuesday morning. It’s only fair after indulging in ceilidh dancing the past two evenings…

Come on over!

Nothing to do next weekend? Fly to London for only $228 round-trip with Delta Web Fares! As always, some conditions do apply.

It's a Segway!

Make way for the Segway! I must admit, I’m rather impressed with the technology, and although I’m a little skeptical on the Utopian possibilities, I am overjoyed that Atlanta is purchasing eight of them. It’s better than MARTA!
