Back from Vacation

December 27, 2006 by · 4 Comments 

Well, my week-long vacation back to Illinois has ended. All in all, it was a pretty good time. We got rained on the first day or so but after that the weather started to look up (although some snow would have been nice). I got to get out of my normal routine and spend some time with relatives (specifically, my grandmother and two uncles) that I haven't seen in a few years.

While we were there, Dot (my girlfriend) and I spent two days in Chicago and managed to see the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum (including "Sue" the largest, most complete, and best preserved T-Rex found thus far), and the Adler Planetarium. We also took an evening look from the John Hancock Observatory and saw the Blue Man Group perform. We had tickets to the Museum of Science & Industry but ran out of time before we could use them (no problem though, we had the "City Pass" package and even with not using those tickets, we still came out ahead of buying everything separately). We capped off the second evening with a nice dinner at Cafe Spiaggia. While the portions were a bit small (for the prices), the food was excellent and I have NEVER had service as good as what I received while we were there. I would recommend it to anyone who is in the area. I guess that just goes to show that EVERYONE needs a Zagat Survey guide if they're in an area that they're not familiar with.

P.S. - Oh, and I changed the style of the site again. I found a new theme for K2 called "SkyBlack" and then tweaked it a bit to fit in 1024x768 instead of 800x600. I've still got to find a better header (because that "skyblue" text is annoying) but other than that, I'm pretty happy. Expect more updates soon.

    It's too bad you couldn't have found the time to visit your other Grandmother and Grandfather .......... I'm sure they would have loved to have seen you!!!!

  2. Forgot says:

    Yeah and just to let you know if you even care bro Grandma Litka passed away last year. Just though I'd let you know that.

  3. Jason says:

    Of course I care, and yes, I already knew, but thank you anyway, even if the notice is a bit belated.

    If you have something to say to me then feel free to use the contact form on the 'About' page. I've never done anything that would prevent any of you from trying to get in touch with me over the past 15 years.

    Oh no problem, it was nice to see you at her funeral bro.. Are you serious... He has tried to get in contact with you for ever Jason.. He sent you stuff all the time and you never responded back to him. After trying and trying for so long with no response it just kinda seems pointless dont u agree.. I missed you man so much but not as much as dad has, man u hurt him so much so if that was ur intention congrats bro... He doesnt know that I'm writing this so Im just letting u kno how it is. So dont u ever dare say that he never tried to keep in contact with u. . Im not gonna look on this page after I get done writing this but if i ever see u again I wanna know what u have done to ever try and keep in contact with us??? And what did grandma and grandpa ever do to u, why did u never talk to them ever again. I'm sure you'll find out on ur own whenever Grandpa Litka passes too man.

This site is no longer updated. If you have a need for RHEL/CentOS LAMP Stack updates outside the normal channels, I recommend ART.
