Yesterday we had a superbowl party, and in short, a number of things went a little oddly… First, and most obviously, the 14-point underdog NY Giants pulled it off! Secondly, on saturday at 4pm, prior to shopping for the party, we had 8 families (28 people) planning to join us for the game. Within the […]
Last weekend, my sister, brother and sister-in-law took a day trip up to Sundown for a day of skiing. We’d had temperatures hovering around zero for a couple of weeks, but for the weekend we got a reprieve. The weather and ski conditions were actually pretty good, but the roads were a little slick and […]

We started by playing a few innings with two batters and five fielders. We played with a 1-strike […]

About 8 people showed up, including my brother, his fiance, Vijay, Shankar, Sundar and a few of their friends. […]
