Change In The Weather

The weather must be getting better.

How do I know? The increased geocaching activity. Actually, more like a boom. A number of people have found my Somerset Offset Cache (GCM0P0) in the last week or so, including somebody who left the cache’s first travel bug! It was a small one — there isn’t much room in there.

Hey, this weekend alone there are 3 new finds. The first of the three, on Saturday, was logged by Team SimCalc (Ryan and Sara) who made short work of the cache this time around and encountered fellow cache seekers. Their prize was that they got to take the Black Knight Travel Bug from the cache.

Afterward they swung by the ranch for Coney Dogs and conversation.

In other geocaching news, Capt. Barney Kale has been out and about. He has not yet left Massachusetts, but the rumor is that he is bound for Georgia.


I certainly hope the weather is changing, and that it has a positive effect on the health of our fellow Bay Staters. This area is under attack by a number of nasty bugs, including rotavirus.

Mattie has been sick with severe cold symptoms this weekend (including fever last night and all of today, which kept me home while Maggie went to her sister’s for Easter). You know things are bad when our pediatrician warns us to steer clear of the hospitals because they’re full of kids carrying… spraying the aforementioned gastrointestinal scourge.

Rotavirus is lots of fun. It’s the most common reason for severe vomiting in kids, can live on surfaces for up to 2 weeks and (here’s the fun part) immunity after infection is incomplete. You can get it again! I’m pretty sure I know at least one young adult who is currently dealing with this. Feel better soon, Derek.

Damn, you, rotavirus. Damn you!
