It's called the Cherokee trading post and it's 35 miles west of Oklahoma City on I-40

Just read that they served bison and lobster at the inauguration. Sounds like the perfect meal to me.

Me too!

I heard about some of the menu items and went "Awwwww." I had a sad. But hey, I'll get my own bison.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

That was a concentrated solar plant. They use the sun to heat a molten salt. It's nearby to this plant.

This is a PV solar array, direct electrical generation.

TSQ, I like my job, off to Yuma next week. Trying to get in on the trips to Dubai, and Germany.

^Oh, I was being sincere! It sounds like wonderful work, fascinating, and full of great travel opportunities. I'd love to see more pictures of the different places you go!

I'm going to a South Carolina next month for work. Whoo-ee.

Indeed. If you're going to Charleston, I highly recommend a place called Hank's for dinner, or the Husk Bar. Both are incredibly good and lots of fun, and you might run in to people from our show there because its a big popular haunt for us!

Myrtle Beach. I won't be there long, actually: Basically fly in Thursday afternoon, Friday morning give a bunch of teachers a talk on how to creatively incorporate technology into their classrooms, and fly out! Happily, my boss is not making my dye the turquoise and cobalt blue streaks out of my hair before I go.

I've got nothing agains SC, I'd just rather have gone to the UK or Germany conventions. Maybe next year.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Myrtle Beach is great. I think you'll like it even at this frigid and inhospitable time of the year.

Virginia Beach is even better, but I'm a tiny bit biased.
