Interesting things I'm doing

Kansas and .38 Special

Posted August 15, 2009

Penny and I went to see the concert at First Council Casino. It was great!

We ate dinner at the buffett in the casino and watched a great show. The stage was set up in the parking lot, and an area was roped off with plenty of seating. It was a beautiful night and a concert under the stars. We even went into the Casino and won a little bit after the show. All in all, a great evening.

A summer visit to St. Louis

Posted August 1, 2009

Clayton and Jeff visited Mom and Dad in August. We had a truly wonderful time! We saw a Cardinals game in the new stadium. We went fishing at Creve Coeur Lake, and even caught some fish. Clayton did an upgrade to Mom’s computer as well. We spend several days visiting and playing cards too. All in all, a great visit. Thank you Mom and Dad!

Lake Afton in July

Posted July 20, 2009

At the last minute on Friday night, we decided to go to Lake Afton for the weekend. It took about 40 minutes to get the camper and truck ready, and Jeff and Clayton were on the road. Penny followed a little later with the rest of the ‘in progress’ laundry.
It was a nice relaxing weekend. We spent a lot of time fishing, but Penny is the only one to actually catch something. It wasn’t for lack of trying.

Beaver Lake – Table Rock

Posted July 15, 2009

We spent a week in the Ozarks with Gayle and Darlene, and had a great time. We started at Tom and Louis’ Mother’s house in Garfield, AK. on Beaver Lake. She has a nice house and dock and a boat as well. We camped in her front yard with Gayle and Darlene. We did some chores for her while we were there, later got some boating and swimming in. We stayed two nights and had great cool weather while there. Video at the end of post.

Mid June at Lake Afton

Posted June 15, 2009

Here we go again. It seems like we always go to Afton. Oh well. At least it’s camping.
This time Gayle and Darlene came out, and used their camper. Gayle’s friends Daryl and Jen also came out and camped in their hybrid travel trailer. We had a great time, and caught some fish. We did some swimming and enjoyed ourselves as usual.

Memorial weekend at Lake Afton

Posted May 25, 2009

We did it. We braved the crowd and camped at Lake Afton Thursday night through Monday. We took Jeffrey and his friend Tyler. We found ourselves a semi secluded spot away from the crowd. We had a lot of fun. We did some fishin’ and some swimin’ and some campfire. Penny and I went fishing Friday morning and each caught a small fish. — UPDATE — Video is done. Check the rest of the story.

JQuery equal height columns

Posted April 29, 2009

Columns of equal height

I was frustrated trying to find an easy way to make all my columns the same height. I finally just put together a simple jQuery script to do just that, without using a jQuery plugin.

Note: This post was updated 1/8/14 for the newest version of jquery, and cleaned up the post. If you view source on the Demo, you can get a clean copy of the entire file.
