Goings on . . .

Posted on May 7, 2024

These past few weeks have been bumpy around here, for sure. Covid entered the house again as did other non-covid upper respiratory infections. We’re on the mend but it certainly is disruptive to life as we know it. On campus there’s a protest going on about the Israeli / Hamas war now and yesterday I walked through the area. It’s very peaceful and is located on the quad near the library and the art museum and other buildings that have classrooms. My best guess is that it will remain that way and likely will be here until the end of Spring Term, in mid-June. Rainbows are always cool. They force us to look up. 🙂 Rainflys are helpful in our weather of late. This…

Review Week

Posted on November 27, 2023

Week 10 in the College of Design is “Review Week,” when the design students demonstrate their skills to professors and professionals. One of my jobs is to run the print shop along with a fantastic group of student employees. Below are a couple of photos from events of the week, so far (the week has just begun, mind you). All in all it’s a busy time and a fun week and the posters printed are usually fun to see. The old HP z6100 jammed up on us last night. It was ugly as can be seen above. The HP z6100 printing as expected. 8 ink colors, 8 print heads, 24″ 20 lb. plotter bond paper. Good stuff.

Fall Campus and iOS feature

Posted on October 18, 2023

Fall evening on the UO campus are lovely when the weather does what it did today. Nora takes a math class in the evenings, one day a week and today was that day. Walking around on the quad I snapped these shots looking each direction from the center. On a different note, I have discovered my favorite feature of iOS: the auto changing lock screen with categories showing you photos from a different time. Nora shows up regularly when I go to unlock my phone as well as nature photos. It’s a neat feature that brings me a smile everytime.

Summer Fade . . .

Posted on September 27, 2023

I took the last two days of the summer work season off to do some chores (clean garage!) and go to the UO Cross Country Dellinger Invitational Meet. It was a good couple of days as the final days of heat ended and the fall storms rolled in off the Pacific. I am moss, lichen, salmon, grey clouds, wool, flannel, plaid and waxed canvas. I look forward to this change so much each year and it rarely disappoints. The meet was run on a golf course out in Springfield, just east of Eugene. It was a beautiful day with several colleges and universities represented. The men run an 8k race and the women run a 6k race. It’s all anaerobic in the end. Impressive.…
