    I'll join in the chorus of telling you to go for it. Also, do you have pics from that exhibit?

    Look at my Facebook page and there is a gallery of some of the pics.  

    Nice stuff. It also prompted me to get around to posting the pics I took at the Epic Rap Battles of History concert I went to on my birthday.

    I misread that as " and most of the artifacts are text files."

    Go for it. Each year I get a vip pass for the local museum of fine arts and I've yet to regret it.

    I vote you go for it. You like to visit museums on your day off, so it'll be worthwhile.

    Yes.  Kegs is always on top of these things.

    But what is the date? What?

    You should get ahold of Lucas Film and see if they can track down the date.

    Hi guys. I've gotten over the cold I had last week, so I'm back to doing daily(ish) polls again. New one's up.

    Also, Patch, sorry to hear about your bum leg.

    Apparently the healing time is 12+ weeks. After 3 weeks it will be at about 20%. It doesn't hurt as bad today. Yesterday sucked.

    I had a good weekend until last night when I was playing football with the boys. I tried to sprint at felt my plantar tendon pop, more like pop pop pop pop. It has been bothering me for a couple of months, but was on the mend. Now, not so much. I'll be in a boot for a few weeks, which sucks.
    I am sitting at my computer for the first time in years. The trickiest part is driving with the boot on. You can't bend your foot to press the gas, so it's a pain. I have to go to Round Rock for work on Thursday. I may have to lose the boot for the drive.

    I just heard about an Inca art exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art. I have determined my project for the day.

    I will look a ancient things made of gold, made of stone. I will ponder the abyss of time.

    I will take pictures.
