Me - Headshot

Back on-line fully

Hey folks, I just wanted to let everyone know two important bits of info. First, I've back on-line fully at home. The computer is fixed and I can send and recieve e-mails, update photos and create digital mayhem from home. Thanks for your patience there. I have two photo sets from my trip to the Atlanta, GA area coming soon (soon as I format them).

On a second and somewhat topical note, my children are safely home from the UK. In fact they got home from London (Heathrow) on Monday evening. Given the current terror alert insanity, I keep wondering about this arrangement, but walking across the street is nearly as dangerous as flying the Atlantic (terror or no terror). I'm just happy the situation is in hand (hopefully).

Trans-Allegheny Asylum for the Insane

This is the Trans-Allegheny Asylum for the Insane, AKA the old "State Hospital" in Weston, WV. I made a little detour there on the way home from working nearby. I had heard that it was going to be torn down (like its sister hospital that once stood near where I live in Spencer, WV.) Fortunately, I found out when I got there that it is going to be fixed-up and will reopen for tours eventually... although it's very closed right now. As in, roped-off, can't get near it.

I am such a sucker for creepy, old buildings... especially enormous, creepy, old buildings with amazing architecture. What I wouldn't give to just sneak in there and walk around...

...during the day...

...with a big stick.
