OK, in scanning my negatives, Started in June, went through to August, then switched and started from the Top in January.  I guess that means I resume in September, right?

Back to when it all began…

I’ve been doing this picture-taking thing for 20 years now. To close out this 20th year, I pulled out my old negative folder and scanned several negatives from that first year.

Kansas now has a Diverging Diamond Interchange. The I-35 exit at Homestead Lane is now open. Unlike many recent DDIs, this is a new interchange to serve the new BNSF intermodal facility between Edgerton and Gardner.

Work in Progress

I’ve been working on a couple of things website-related lately.

First off, I’ve realized I’ve long neglected the License Plate section of Kansas Highways. I’ve updated the pages to reflect the current website layout.

The layout itself has been tweaked a little. For low-resolution screens (read, smartphones) the sidebar normally on the right-hand side of the screen is instead at the bottom of the page.

I’ve also been working on a more creative side. Over the past several years I’ve written a series of Star Trek themed fan-fiction stories. The creative juices for those stories have waned; however, I’ve been, in the past few weeks, found my mojo in the form of fan-fiction stories based on the current TV series NCIS. I’ve finished one story, and am well underway on a second. They can be found on My user page at fanfiction.net. At some point, I will also publish them here on my site.

Running Behind….

The bad news… I haven’t made a new post to this blog in a while.

The good news… I’ve at least found something to do (and get paid for it). It’s a contract job involving a computer and printer deployment for various offices in Northeast Kansas and Northwest Missouri.

Those trips have also netted me some road trip opportunities.
