I have a few little bits of news that I wanted to share:
On Sunday, I completed the ING Half Marathon through downtown Atlanta. It was cold and dark when we started, but as we ran the sun rose and the streets were lined with blossoming trees. It was quite lovely. I did manage to run the entire 13.1 miles.
I’m turning 40 on April 30.
We are going to delay construction on the ranch for about a year. Water for the ranch was to be supplied by a well, but the requirements for fire suppression were enormous. Building the necessary storage and buying the necessary pump was going to be a huge expense. The developer of the adjacent 2000 acres assures me that there will be city water and sewer lines there in two years. (The extra year will also make the down-payment on the construction easier to handle.)
However, design of the ranch continues: I am meeting with the kitchen designer this week.
Last week, Juan Pablo Claude and I taught a draft of our Cocoa 2 Bootcamp for AOL. It is coming along nicely, and I’m looking forward to when it is ready for the general public.
