The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Growing rocks and all that

Spring and I went to the Morikami Museum nd Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach, Florida. Quite the calm and peaceful place, much like Bok Tower, only without Saruman and his throngs of Uruk-hai running around the place.

[The Land of Make Believe]
[The Land of Make Believe at Ground Level]
[“See!  I told you!  Squid eyeballs!”]
[And absolutely NO swimming!]
[Sadly this wasn't real, but a cunning fake.]
[This isn't the Bridge over the River Kwai.]
[Lots of pretty flowers]
[A rock garden, and what can't I ignore?  That pine cone.]
[Waves of rocks in the garden]
[Yet another garden for growing rocks.]
[There's a museum over there, along with very small trees.]
[For some reason, I found this very funny.]
[Little trees.]
[Rock Balboa has nothing on these guys.]
[Wow, a Bonsai forest of one tree!]
[These guys were at least 2′ in length!]
[One of several waterfalls.]
[Boca Raton is overrun with these guys.  This wasn't the only fauna we saw though.]
[Yet another rock garden.]
[This place is lousy with rock gardens!]
[And from Japan we hit a pub in Irland.]

Significantly afterwards, in keeping up with our international hopping in South Florida, Spring and I hit a Irish pub for dinner, where I had a traditinal Irish Fish-n-chips, and Spring had a spinage dip with potatoes, which prompted us to ask if the Irish settled Idaho.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
