Last weekend we had our fantasy football draft for the NFL-Idaho league. I’m not sure how I turned out. We’ll see soon enough. Fortunately, I have a strong set of keepers, including Peyton Manning, Larry Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Shaun Alexander. But, being last to draft in the first few rounds (due to my winning the championship last year, so no complaints, really), most of the really good guys were gone before I got my first pick. But, I did grab Chad Johnson, much to the dismay of my little brother, so I should have strong WRs and RBs. But, my #2 QB is Kurt Warner, who may or may not have a great year. We’ll see.
Anyways, the NFL season is almost here! I’m excited for another year of fantasy football! And I’m ready to kick some ass!

Last month, my wife Lisa and I visited Monterey, CA. I was attending a conference there. Lisa has a friend who just moved there from Santa Fe so it was pretty convenient for her too. We were there about a week. I was in the conference most of the week, at the Asilomar conference site, which was pretty cool, though a bit remote. While I stayed at a hotel away from Asilomar, I understand that the rooms at Asilomar itself are pretty spartan, with no TV, phone or internet
access. I guess the point is to make you focus on the conference.
I did get to go to the aquarium with Lisa, which was really nice. I highly recommend it. Especially the jellyfish. The colors were amazing! We also wandered down Cannery Row, which was pretty cool. There were some interesting shops, though nothing that really got me too excited. I think Lisa found some things she liked though.
That was about all I saw. Lisa was able to go on a whale watching cruise where she saw some amazing things. I guess it was an excellent day for whale watching.
Overall, it was a great visit!
Well, my previous attempt at a blog failed. I was getting way too much spam via the comments to keep up or to make it at all fun to do. We’ll see if this one works better.
The look of the blog will probably evolve over the next few months, to personalize the style. So, don’t be surprised if things change dramatically the next time you visit.
