Webcam Images

It's pretty amazing what technology produces when you set it in motion with no real purpose. Molly's webcam has been taking pictures of her (or, more accurately, her crib or playspace) every 15 minutes almost since the minute she arrived home. The total archive now stands around 25,000 pictures, mostly of nothing. But it's the candid moments the camera captures that delight, showing a little baby growing into a little girl.

I've added a backlog of images to her "Best Of Mollycam" section, roughly in time order, here.

Buy Blue

Don't put your money where their mouth is. Buy Blue.

Kroger surprised me. They are proud of their unionized employess, but the owner's political contributions speak otherwise. No more money from me!

Update: ChooseTheBlue is a more comprehensive site for analyzing corporate political contributions.

November Report

November was a busy month. Molly has started to crawl(!), and two couples we know had their babies. I guess there's something in the water up here.

Speaking of which, the sheer volume of babies in this area had somehow escaped me until now. With Molly here, I guess I notice them more, like when you buy a car and see that same model a dozen times a day.

Molly's well-visit to the doctor showed her at 17 lbs., 27 in. Growing, growing, growing!

On a political note, I've read some interesting takes on what Democrats need to do that range from the logical to the angry to the really angry (severe language). The one redeeming factor for me is, if history teaches us anything, that hubris of the magnitude the Bush administration is exhibiting cannot last. Or maybe it's time to move to The United States of Canada.

Molly's got new pics
