We've had a great time with family here. I like Arizona birds. Some we have in Texas, but many
are not present where we live. A few we have do not live here. I like learning more about birds.

I brought my computer running Fedora 18 on this trip. It's worked great, with one challenge.
I figured out during my flight that the optical drive turns off when the power cord is not plugged in. I vaguely remember that all laptops used to do this, and that perhaps there will be a
way to make it do otherwise.

Tonight I had carne con chili colorado. I am content.
