Time in Indiana: Sunday, 7pm, until 6:30 am, Thursday morning, split between Bloomington and Indianapolis.
Notes on Bloomington:
Holy cow, there is a ton of construction going on – the bypass, 10th Street, South Walnut, Sare Road, plus the ongoing construction on campus. What a nightmare, I’ve never seen it this bad before. The Owlery [...]
So after a bunch of comments from Hoosiers a week or two ago, I finally made my decision and I sent off my absentee ballot.
Really, of course, there was no question (or choice) for US President or US Senator: Barack Obama and Joe Donnelly, respectively, got my primary votes.
However, for the 9th Congressional [...]
Wow – It’s been a very busy Tuesday. I had a total of ten specific tasks that I needed (or wanted) to do in Bloomington – an incredible range of activities – some fast, some not. Some never happened – and were replaced with alternative activities.
Honestly, I’ve never done so much in so little [...]
For six nights in a row this week, I will not be sleeping in the same bed twice – right now I’m half way through this travel marathon and I am looking forward to being at rest, somewhere.
Monday at 10:00 Mountain Standard Time I was in Denver, specifically at the airport, [...]
Anybody in Bloomington for more than about 5 or 10 minutes will immediately figure out that somebody named Lauren is missing, thanks to the posting of 10,000 fliers on everything from empty store fronts, random lamp posts, and everything else you could imagine.
She’s been missing since June 3, 2011, and her family is seeking [...]
One thing that I do now, more than I did in the past, is think about the messages that what t-shirts I wear, say. Consequently, I’m buying fewer random t-shirts and wishing I had more of some messages.
For example, at the gym I wear duds for the Wyoming Cowboys (I wish I had more) [...]
You can tell when people are changing classes…
While the timing of this trip was dictated by something I was invited to attend, it happens to match the first week of classes at Indiana University, Bloomington.
Technically, I’m on vacation, but I’ve taken care of a number of housekeeping-like things, like visiting the bank [...]
The mixer for making dough at Greek's Pizza
This is the replica Stave Church in Moorhead, Minnesota.
The stunningly beautiful and restored Hotel Donaldson, Fargo, North Dakota
At Jax, in Fort Collins, Colorado, Ritter Sport costs $3.19! I prefer paying 79 cents at the Ritter Sport store in Berlin.
This has been an interesting trip – at least weather wise – and not always in a good way.
From the moment I planned this trip I was most worried about Fargo and it’s extremely cold temperatures. Instead I’ve experienced a miserable snowstorm in Denver that made driving a challenge and, Tuesday afternoon in Bloomington, [...]
Unlike last year where I had the oomph and time to write individual reviews for each film, this year, I do not.
Instead I’ll tell you about the highlights and a few of the lowlights.
Over all I’m under the general impression that there were fewer gay films this year, about the same number of [...]
