We have been pretty busy the last few weeks. We managed to make it out to a Nationals game...unfortunately, the Nats couldn't pull out a win for us. Phil however, decided to grow his goatee like Albert Pujols, which he thought was pretty cool.We also made it up to New York for Memorial Day weekend. Mainly, we went to be there for the blessing of our new niece Charlotte. Phil was such a great uncle, and pushed Charlotte around in her stroller all over NYC and Central Park. I took my first visit to Serendipity (yes, where the movie came from) which had fabulous desserts. I quite enjoyed my frozen hot chocolate.
In the flavor of Pete's Entertainment reviews, I thought I'd post about the book I listened to in the car to and from work for the past week or two, "The Search," by John Battelle.
4.5 out of 5 stars. It was quite interesting and educational. He explains how search engines began, how they work, how they led to the dot com boom and pop, and how Google emerged after the dust settled from the implosion.
He does not treat Google as the end-all be-all of all internet companies but also offers different points of views on Google's antics. He also explores Yahoo!, but not as extensively.
It is a documentary-style book, so if you're looking for plots, or character development, this book probably is not for you. But you don't have to take my word for it...
So Phil and I finally went out and bought him a new hat, two new hats in fact. For those of you remember his BYU hat, you will know how gross and stinky it was (and of course he wouldn't let me wash it). He couldn't decide on which Nationals hat to get, so we got him both. He's all ready to play some ball now.
We also both planted some seeds for FHE last night. Phil is growing some basil, and I'm just growing some flowers for our front porch.
