Home Theater Day 3 — Set is installed

Major progress today. Not only are we able to visualize the finished product but the signal strength was vastly improved with a visit by Comcast and ESPN GamePlan was ordered.

Confidence level is increasing that the set will be up and running in time for next Saturday’s premier of College Game Day.

Quincy is cleaning house

Sharon K’s (dad’s wife) grandson is cleaning house in the 4-H Horse Show. Below is a recap from his biggest fan, his mother…

Quincy is # 4 in the State of TEXAS in WORKING COW HORSE………….which is one of the events he is competing in at the State 4-H Horse Show in Abilene this week. There were 100 entries in the class, with the ages being from 9-19 with NO divisions. Quincy is 12 and scored a 275. A 17 year old girl won with a 285. They awarded buckles to the top 7. He is competing in the Reining competition today.

For those of you who do not know what reining or working cow horse is……..this is a VERY big deal!!!!
You have to make your horse ride a pattern in the correct lead, do spins, rollbacks and stops at precise places in the pattern.

In the working cow…….it is a ‘dry work’ reining pattern and then ‘cow work’…….after you complete the dry work, they turn out a ‘cow’ and you have to “box” it at one end of the arena(basically keep it between 2 marks), then you have to push it down the fence…giving it the ‘advantage’ and then “hurry” and get it front of it and turn it back down the fence…….you do this at least twice. THEN….you take it out in the center of the arena and with your horse’s right shoulder, you ‘figure 8’ the cow on his left hip…and then switch and do it on the other side. It may sound easy, but it is NOT!! It is so much fun to watch………especially when it is being done correctly!!

We are so proud of Quincy and have so many people compliment and comment on what an accomplished rider he is………I had to share!!

The picture is from one of his earlier competions this year..but displays him “turning” the cow on the fence.

Completely random effing connection

So I was at the chiropractor’s office in March and the small talk quickly turned to a topic I was amped about at the time: the stars aligning for an inevitable KU run at the Final Four. The talk of ala-matars turned to Davidson, where my chiropractor received his undergrad. I graduated with someone from Amarillo who I was pretty sure played volleyball at Davidson so to continue the line of discussion I threw out the …. I doubt you know her but…. In fact my chiropractor’s roommate dated an Amy Howard and he thought she was from some town in Texas. Crazy.…

Anyway few months I actually did some searching for Amy and bingo…not only did we connect but it was in fact the same Amy who apparently owns the Davidson record books in volleyball and is current on staff at Richmond. And to draw the connection even closer to home, Amy’s dissertation was based on community housing in SF. Amy’s more than impressive bio:

Amy Howard, Acting Director (Center for Civic Engagement)

Dr. Amy Howard currently serves as the acting director of the Center for Civic Engagement. She holds an A.B. with honors in history from Davidson College, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in American Studies from the College of William and Mary. Her dissertation, “‘More Than Shelter’: Community, Identity, and Spatial Politics in San Francisco Public Housing, 1938-2000,” won the Distinguished Dissertation in the Humanities Award at William and Mary and received an honorable mention for the American Studies Association’s Ralph Henry Gabriel dissertation prize in 2005. Howard is currently working on a book manuscript about tenant activism, community building and racial and ethnic alliances in San Francisco public housing. She serves on the board of the Community Futures Foundation and Connect Richmond.

Anyway….crazy connection that warranted blowing the dust off blog.
