"The Map Room"

Skip to the random thought

I didn't have anything written for today, so I'm just going to post some pictures from our award-winning* map room. Last week, we went online and sent away for a bunch of free state tourism maps. Much sooner than expected (especially considering some web sites said "8 to 10 weeks"), we've already started to rake them in! Tennessee came on Thursday; Minnesota, Kansas, and Washington came on Friday; while Arkansas and Montana came on Saturday. In addition to that, we already have Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Ohio, Michigan, Louisiana, Nevada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Plus a giant Yield sign out in the hallway. (* - Our map room hasn't actually won any awards yet. But I'm sure it could.)

So, here are some pictures: (Arkansas and Kansas are not shown in the pictures. Arkansas is behind the door, below Minnesota; Kansas is next to Montana, above the bedroom window.)

Today's random thought:

- One of the best things about my current radio station of choice (88.1 FM, WKNC) is that often times during my morning commute, I won't hear any commercials. Solid music, all the way from Amberwood to the RTP. That doesn't always happen, but it certainly happens more often than on other "for profit" stations. The only thing missing from WKNC is Brian LeBlanc. (Or any traffic reports at all, for that matter.)

(If you happened to read this before 1000a this morning, you may have noticed that there was no random thought then. Yeah, I just forgot to insert it into the post. Oh well - that happens sometimes.)
