Thanksgiving in Florida was terrific. Everyone (of course) loved Megan!

As you move toward a dream, the dream moves toward you. …. Pray to catch the bus, then run as fast as you can. ― Julia Cameron
This brought to you (and me) by my friend Marah. I certainly need such encouragement with all my chasing school stuff. (I’m taking the GRE in 9 days, and I’ve got a flurry of tests in front of me before Holiday break)
I wrote a letter to BART today. If you believe the same, please comment here and write to BART
I notice that Powell station recently got new illuminated signage at the platform level. Its very nice and legible from inside the train.
I need to point out that the 16th and 24th street stations remain ENTIRELY indistinguishable from one another from inside the train. The stations look IDENTICAL to one another and the existing signage is hidden in shadow.
Please install signage at 16th and 24th St stations so a traveller can tell them apart.
A few years ago when Charlotte and I were in a Penzeys spice store, we came across this bumper sticker.
We’re not sure how large the young urban cannibal market is, but Penzeys has a lock on it ;-)
Love People. Cook them tasty food.

I’m going to try to be there. Join me?
Here’s a boring geeky list of what makes Lee.org run.
- Ajax Edit Comments by The PluginBuddy Team. Some of my commenters use this all the time. Great.
- Akismet by Automattic. Since tweaking NoSpamNX perfectly, this is rarely needed. But I like having this as backup
- Artiss Plugins List by David Artiss. How I made this list :-)
- Brian’s Latest Comments by Brian Meidell. Essential part of my blog format :-)
- DoFollow by Kimmo Suominen. Since I don’t allow any spam on my blog, I think this increases my google juice.
- Faster Image Insert by David Frank. Lets me edit while photos are being updated. Great.
- FLV Embed by Yaosan Yeo. An FLV video player :-)
- Google Authenticator by Henrik Schack. Helps keep me safe from hackers… and I feel better about logging and blogging on strange computers.
- Infinite Scroll by Beaver6813, dirkhaim, Paul Irish. Essential part of my blog format :-)
- Jetpack by WordPress.com by Automattic. I get to see what posts are popular
- NoSpamNX by Sven Kubiak. Keeps the comment spammers away. Read more.
- Related Posts by Alexander Malov & Mike Lu. Essential part of my blog format :-)
- Search Everything by Dan Cameron of Sprout Venture. Works great.
- Search Excerpt by Scott Yang. Works great
- Smart Archives Reloaded by scribu. Makes a great archive page.
- Subscribe To Comments by Mark Jaquith. Used by many of my commenters
- WP-PageNavi by Lester ‘GaMerZ’ Chan & scribu. Essential.
- WP-PhotoNav by Fabian Moser. I’ve played with a bit and it works for panoramas. I often forget to use it though.
- WP FancyZoom by Stephen Granade. Essential.
- WP Super Cache by Donncha O Caoimh. The best cache.
* Login Lock. Works but Google Authentication works better (I think)
* Twitter Tools
* WPBook Lite. I replaced these 3 with Twitterfeed this week.
* Spam Free WordPress – By Todd Lahman, LLC It helped decrease comment spams but my current solution is working better
* No Adverts for Friends By Donncha O Caoimh – it looks like it broke a while back :-(
* Maintenance Mode By Michael Wöhrer. Hangs in the wings in case of spam hack attack or something.
