I remember seeing horrible photos of them bulldozing the ENT set.
Oh, what a sad sight!

Yeah, I was quite surprised myself that they managed to bring all that stuff to London. It was truly surreal to see actual objects from the show. This was definitely one of the event's highlights. I've got more pics, I'll post them later when I get home from work.

Yes, Shanndee, I had an awesome time! I didn't get to do EVERYTHING I wanted, but I would have needed some time-traveling skills to achieve that. The schedule was pretty crazy. Still, it was quite an experience.

I had a client meeting in southern New Jersey yesterday. So I decided to stop by Point Pleasant Beach. Here are a few pictures from where the Boardwalk use to be...

My brother-in-law grew up in Point Pleasant. He was pretty sad about the damage there.

On Wednesday, I had to part with my dog, Lily, of whom I have posted many pictures here over the 11 years of my membership on the board. I won't go into the long list of health issues that had worsened precipitously the last two months, the sum of which were making her distressed, upset and in pain, but I agonized over the reality that putting her to sleep would be a release and mercy for her. It was so very hard. She was only two months shy of her 15th birthday, and had a long life, a good life.

I only bought a dog...but so many years later I lost a companion who knew how to cheer me up when I was down, who kept me active and on my toes, made me laugh constantly and gave affection from a seemingly endless supply. I'm going to miss her constant need to be in physical contact with me...she had a habit of sleeping on my toes when I was using the computer. I'll miss her "guarding" me when I was vulnerable while showering (I always figured she had seen Psycho). I'll miss her offering to share her treats with me. I guess that was my privilege as the alpha male.

This dog helped me survive a terrible marriage, and she was the only thing I cared to fight for in the divorce.

So in Lily's honor, here's some of my favorite pictures of her.

She was a beautiful dog Ruaidhri. It looks like she had a lot of fun.
If no one comes from the future to stop you from doing it, then how bad of a decision can it really be?

My wife got to meet Auburn's new head football coach Gus Malzahn yesterday when he came by her school to talk with a student who has committed there. She's an Auburn alum, so she was rather giddy about getting to meet him face-to-face.

I went through quite a transformation recently after November ended and I finally shaved the beard. I'd been letting my hair grow out for months too so I was pretty...scruffy. I took a shot before and after the hair cut and then another one today (in the car to keep everything consistent) after having shaved. I swear I look 5-10 years younger when I lose the majority of my facial hair. If only I could have remembered which way my head had been turned...

Went to the Houston "Zoo Lights," its new Christmas celebration/fundraiser, where the entire zoo is covered in lights. Most of the animals are tucked away for the night, so it's mostly just lights, music, food & drink, etc. We walked it last night; it was really fun, but very crowded. Here are some shots I was able to get with my crappy pocket camera:

Ah. Well, parking was a nightmare, so it definitely had some drawbacks. They will probably do it again next year.
