When we saw Keith Knox a few weekends ago at Uncle Bobby’s birthday he talked about the exciting new developments in the Archimedes Palimpsest project. Keith was in Baltimore for another round of imaging the palimpsest and explained how the text of a speech by Hyperides had been reveled in the document. Hyperides – you […]

A couple weeks ago while we were eating apples on our way to Target John suddenly declared, “I have a loose tooth.” It turned out to be one of those fun ones you can bend to a 90 degree angle before it fell out a couple of days later. Yesterday while we were eating apples […]
I had hoped to post an after-dinner group photo here, but our computer crashed and doesn’t want to come back. Scotty’s got a few theories, but he is off to see the Redskins game so it will have to wait. It was quite a happy Thanksgiving, but we are still finding things to put away. […]
Not that we are obsessed with TV or anything, but here are our new Monday night rankings. None of actually watches all this on Monday night – we make full use of both DVRs to record them.

Caitlin, who was a huge Prison Break […]
Bobby (or as he constantly reminds my kids, “That’s Uncle Bobby to you.”) turns 30 today. It seems like just yesterday that he was born. I still clearly remember the anticipation of that day and the wonder of it all really happening. He’s still a wonder.

It is always nice to open up the Post’s editorial page and see that they agree with me. Today we thought that Nancy Pelosi should not have endorsed Murtha for House majority leader. Now is the time to build consensus and work together. I think Murtha has many fine things to say, but his past […]
The Stewart family 2006 softball season has finally come to a close. It finished on an excellent note with a fun overnight tournament just south of Richmond. Scotty, freed up from his coaching duties of Caitlin’s team, was able to attend and got to see the team play its best. They played so well in […]
While in North Carolina, Caroline and I toured Davidson College. It is a highly selective liberal arts school about 20 miles north of Charlotte. There was a lot to like about it - beautiful campus set at the edge of small town; thoughtful core curriculum; emphasis on study abroad; very strong honor code (no book […]
