Great birthday thanks to family and friends!
Yesterday I had a great birthday celebration with friends and family. We opened some of the best wine we have and enjoyed some great times and great food. It was a lot of fun!
Brunch at Stacks
We went to Stacks in Campbell for brunch. This is a big favorite of mine. They make terrific breakfasts. Sue's mom Frances, Sons Kenneth and Jeff, Jeff and his wife Nicole's daughter Madison joined Sue and I. We had a great time together as a family.
Model train operation session
After brunch Jeff, Madison and I went to the Model Railroad club in Agnews. It just so happened the club was having an operations session there that day. It was Jeff and Madison's first time at the train club. The club is in an old railroad depot from the 1870's and the mail line is right next to the tracks. So we got to see both little and real trains go by.
Dinner with friends
After the train club we joined Kevin and Jolyce at Viva's in Los Gatos. We brought two of the best bottles of wine we had and had them at dinner (they do corkage.) That was a real treat, thank you! After dinner we met Pam and Patty at our house. They brought some great wine to the evening. Pam brought a bottle of Opus One! It was the first time I have ever had that. It was wonderful. So far, 52 is good.
Still waiting for grandson news
We are still waiting for news regarding Jeff and Nicole's impending birth of their second child. It could come any time! Today is Luci's birthday. Happy birthday Luci!

Wednesday was last Whine and Dine Ride
Last Wednesday was the last regularly scheduled Whine and Dine ride of 2007. Tyler will be doing quick spinner rides starting at five for a few more weeks. We had a great turn out. Patty, bless her heart, even arranged for a birthday cake for Mylo and I. Kathy also celebrated her birthday from last Sunday with us.

Phone Post: "rms" speaking at SJSU
Richard Matthew Stallman who launched the GNU Project (Gnu's not Unix) expousing Free Software that sought to and finally brought to the world a free version of UNIX (with help from Linus Torvolds) spoke at SJSU today. Most of what he said I have already heard, but what a thrill it was to hear rms (lower case intentional) say it himself. In the first edition of the Hacker's Dictionary, he wrote, "'Richard Stallman' is just my mundane name; you can call me 'rms'." This was the name he used in him computer accounts. Hacker, in those days, was a term for a person who made things work through unique and creative methods and it did not have the negative connotation it now has.

Today they opened an Apple Store in Los Gatos
Despite a day today that was over twelve hours, I had to stop there on my way home. It is close to where we live! No, I did not get a T-shirt.
It is hard to resist Apple's products
No matter what your age.

My brother Lloyd and his family
More picture taken by dad. These photos were taken in front of Mom and Dad's house just about this time of year 42 years ago. The bare lawn under their feet is where they put in the sewer line after our neighborhood became part of the town of Concord, CA. It replaced our septic tank.
