Not much new...

Well next week is EVE fan fest! so we are all super busy getting ready for it.

This morning I could see the stars when I got to work, it has been a while, it was either to bright out, or cloudy, so that was a nice change.

I stumbled across this photo the other day, and I want to go where that is some time :)


Update: this is from the Portalnd, OR Japaneses gardens.

Update 2: it ended the day miserable and raining...

Last day in iceland

Well I got the last of the photos processed. There wasn't many from the last day as i was sick and didn't take allot of photos, and i had seen it all before. :)

Jen found the sweater I gave her very useful, it was nippy out and since it has only gotten colder.

We rented a car and drove around the golden circle, we had a nice and sunny day if cold. The trees where changing color ( but I did not realize it at the time) . And thinkervillr was very nice in autumn colors.

That night it snowed and Jen and Andrew had to drive in snow to get back to the airport.

Any way. in other news i bought a Mac mini computer to start learning programming on macs. I think the days of M$ being the monopole in computers is past. Mac is now a serious contender and Linux (Unbootu) is giving both a run for it's money. So in the future I can see the need for software companys to have products on all platforms not just on windows.

So time to start learning.

Dagur tvier...

Well day two of the London trip.

We started the morning out at the British Museum, and Andrew goes through museums like Dad does. Lets put it this way Glaciers move faster!

Anyway a bought noon Jen and i headed to the tower of London. But i had a stop to make first, and headed to Reagent street to buy a Ipod at the apple store, then i cot a cab to the tower. Jen on the other hand walked there.

We spent the afternoon at the tower and saw the crown jewels, they wouldn't let me take picturees :( But i bought postcards...

Anyway we saw the tower and had a good time then caught a cab back to the hotel where we had supper in the room, the following day we headed to the airport and flew to Reykjavik.

More photos coming from that part.

First pictures of sis vacation up.

i have processed and uploaded the first day in London. I am not going to do a lengthy write up as i am tired and going to bed. Still have the sniffles.

We started out early heading to Buckingham palace and did the tour of that, there is no photos of the inside as they don't allow you to take any.

There is a nice photo of Jen and Andrew in front of the Canada gate. Then some of the front of the palace, then we jump to the queens gardens.

After that we caught a hop-on-hop-off tour buss and went all over. We saw Trafalgar square, tower bridge, tower of London., a bunch of statues a long the way.

Anyway enjoy day one.

Home and the sib is off.

A short post to say back from London. Jen and Andrew spend a day here and we drove the Golden circle. They did the stops much faster than mom and dad as it was 2c out side. If you know Jen she doesn't do cold well.

And speaking of colds I brought one home from London so I spend Thursday driving around Iceland shivering and sweating alternately. But sis had a good tour of Iceland and we walked the sea wall a bit also and stopped at the Pertlan the day we arrived.

And I have spend most of today curled up in my bead freezing, but i think the cold has broken. I still have the coughing my lungs out phase to go. and my guts are sore already from the coughing.

I have a bunch of nice photos from London and some not so nice ones. But I will get them processed and posted this weekend hopefully. and a real trip report up.

As it was 2c yesterday but nice and sunny. It was good, but it started snowing last night, and Andrew was worried about driving to the airport. I guess they don't get a lot of snow driving in Vancouver :)

But they called me from the airport they got there ok, and the roads had mostly cleared by the time they left. BUt we have nice snow topped mountains again :)

Now back to bed for me...
