Photo Recap

I was cleaning some pictures out and organizing some albums, so I thought I'd share.


I guess this wall was a national landmark or something.  I didn't know that but this national park 'security agent' let me know.  He sure was in a tizzy!!  Luckily I got off with just a warning. 


This is a famous landmark on the Iceland coast.  This time I was happy 
with just standing there for a picture (Crystal was there).



This was a picture I took about 4 months into Crystal's pregnancy.  The one on the far left is sauerkraut.  If you count that and the pickles (in the back), there are 10 drinks.


This is a cool little building I found north of SLC. 


This is Chloe minutes after her birth; the first picture of her eyes open.




This is a tree that we found on our way to Oregon.  We still have no idea 
how/why all those shoes got on there, but it looks cool.


This is a picture I took about 3 miles above the Y in Provo.  I went on a little biking adventure and ended up dehydrated, sunburned, (pissed as hell), and exhausted.


Somehow when I took this picture of Crystal with my iPhone I took it at the exact right moment to capture the shot of the gun.  


This should be on an anti-caffeine ad or something.  
Relax though - we don't let her drink Red Bull, she just likes shiny things.

Google Analytics Sign-Up

A few people have asked me how I set up my Google Analytics account, so I recorded a little demonstration for you all.  This video shows how to insert the analytics code snippet into your blog and use analytics to track who comes to your site.

If there is an interest I will post an explanation of the Analytics webpage and what each section means.

Gas Money

This semester I am commuting (on the bus) up to the U every Tuesday and Thursday.  It would take about an 1 hr 30 min to drive the 48.4 miles from Provo to U of U, which gives me lots of time to think about things like how much money I save myself by taking the bus instead of driving:

That is how much it takes for a 1-way trip getting 20 mpg at $3.65/gallon (today's average).  Double that for a round trip and double again because I go up twice a week gives: $35.40 / week.

The school semester goes from 25 Aug to 12 Dec.  Take 3 days off for vacation and that leaves 29 trips and a grand total of: $256.65.

 Now I just have to convince Crystal to spend some of that saved money on a commute-related item; like some noise canceling headphones.
