The Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center

Today I went out for a little drive. At about 1:00 I sent Anna this picture and text:

I'm at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center. Man, this place is great! Why have I never come here before?

A few minutes later I sent her this:

There's a dinosaur on the roof!

The Snellville Historical Cemetery with Jessica

Today Jessica and I went to the Snellville Historical Cemetery to take pictures. Here are some of the ones I took:

Thirty Years Ago

Today is an important anniversary for me: It was exactly thirty years ago, on June 4, 1990, that I started working as an Associate Course Developer at ExecuTrain Corporation, my first "real" job out of college.

This is me back then (not actually on my first day, but after I'd worked there about five months--the Far Side calendar behind me is on the November 1990 page), sitting in my office by my IBM PS/2 computer:

I worked there for ten and a half years, from the time I was 23 until I was 33, and loved...well, not actually every minute, but many of them. In a lot of ways it was the best job I ever had.
