  • PRS Guitars featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”

    My brother, Eric Granroth, works for Paul Reed Smith Guitars. He emailed me a couple days ago; he was interviewed for a segment on “All Things Considered.” The program aired yesterday. Alas, I don’t think his interview ended up in the final production. Anyway, it was pretty good PR for PRS. The position seemed to […]

  • Semantic vs. valid markup

    Scott Pennington of Matrix at Michigan State University emailed an interesting link to me. The SimpleBits blog has a post and discussion of semantic markup of a page heading.

  • LukeW. linking to my web tips!

  • Thanks

    Thank you to everyone for the help and support we’ve received in these last few days. And, we really appreciate the Riverview-ians who have brought (and will bring) us meals! Not having to worry about preparing meals ourselves really makes a big difference. So, thanks.

  • Eva Marie Granroth is here!

    Once labor started in earnest, it went fast. Two hours, maybe. Chey was in the bathtub, at home, breathing hard. We called the midwives, and while Gera was talking with Chey on the phone, I was talking with Chey’s mother, Lahine, about coming over to stay and make sure Lila would be alright. That was […]

  • Contractions

    Here we are timing contractions. This evening Chey and I went out to Outback Steakhouse. Then we went to Target to buy a stroller/carseat combo. Then we went to pick up Lila from Nicole’s apartment. Chey has been having the contractions all evening, and they have been quite stronger than in the past couple weeks. […]

  • Cooking up a storm

    We rapidly approach the due date for baby number two, and Chey is cooking up a storm. Definitely not what I would be doing if I had a passenger with luggage in my belly. The flour on the belly makes this photo for me.
