This week was a trip to Arkansas to do some stuff for a project that I can't talk about.  I can talk about the trip itself though.  Monday was flying down and I spent ten hours on that.  The town I had to visit is two hours away from the airport.  And no it wasn't Bentonville.  Tuesday was a day in the office followed by drinks at a hotel that still has a liquor license in a dry county.  Wednesday was in the office followed by a trip to Branson, Missouri for barbecue and beer.  Branson is a cheesey town that should not be visited unless you are in the area.  It's a bunch of really tacky Country theatres.  Good barbecue though.  Thursday was travelling back and between driving, waiting in the airport, and flying it took sixteen hours.  The whole trip was made better by the fact that my boss has to take a lot of vacation before his hiring anniversay and wasn't availalbe to annoy me.

Friday was a catch up day and a blow off day.  I left the office at 3:00pm dog tired.  Friday night we had our first backyard campfire.  Also, a nice note about Friday the town came and took my brush from the ice storm. 

Yesterday we bought the younger daughter a new bike from the sales and customer service department of China, Inc.  Then went to the drive-in to see Night at the Museum II and Wolverine.  I'm glad I didn't spend more than twenty dollars for the whole family to see both.

Today we're off to the New England Aquarium and possibly another fire this evening.  Tomorrow will be a cook out to remember all the poor people who have given their lives to protect the wealth of the elites.
