I'm seeing some lovely end-of-year posts from friends here on LJ, so I'm going to do the same... as well as resolve to come back and post here more often. G+ just hasn't caught on with the people I want to connect with, FB is too oriented towards small bites (taste great but less filling), and I really need to be able to sit down and produce longer, more thoughtful pieces. I do have a WordPress food blog, and I might someday export this LJ to WP, but for now here I am and so here's where I'll post.

Yikes, that's a lot. I think I'll wrap it up for now. (Maybe if I wrote more than once a month, I wouldn't have to do these huge novels. I'll work on it!)

Here's hoping you and those close to your heart have a warm and wonderful 2013 ahead of you!

Yeah, he's not officially 21 until tomorrow. Except that it's already tomorrow in Japan, so it's time to wish Cordell a happy 21st birthday!

He went from this:

(No, Matt didn't actually eat the baby. Well, maybe just a nibble.)

to this:
OMG!!1! PONIES!

in only two decades. What a guy! I love you and I still miss you, and I know you're having the time of your life over there. Have a wonderful birthday!

Blastoff!

Cordell has been visiting, and one of the projects I'd hoped he'd tackle while in town was to build a Lego space shuttle for Lincoln. My sister had sent a Technic shuttle set (8480), and yesterday we pulled it out. He spent two days building it, and tonight we finally got to play with it. It's got fiber optics on the rockets; the landing gear moves up and down; the aerilons flap up and down; and there are motors that open and shut the shuttle bay doors; lift, lower and rotate the Canada arm; and open and shut the solar panels on the satellite hanging on the arm.

Meanwhile... good luck on your upcoming (delayed) liftoff, Atlantis!
