Hotlanta?

Looks more like a Christmas card to me, than a state of emergency.

Downtown Atlanta Monday afternoon. Not a car in sight.

Jack would be in heaven

This booth at the trade show I'm at, is covered with dozens of these yellow foam corn hats.

Considering these shots from the Nebraska spring game...


and this one from his birthday...

Jack would be in Husker heaven!

Stats

The sports bar that we walked to for dinner tonight.

They say it's the second place in the world, and the first in the United States, to incorporate self-serve beer taps directly into the tables — no server or bartender needed!

Room with a view

From the seventh floor of the Hilton Garden Inn* in downtown Atlanta:

• The skyscraper on the left is Bank of America Plaza — the tallest building (1,024 feet high) in any U.S. capital city.
• At the bottom left with the big navy blue wall is the Georgia Aquarium — the largest aquarium in the world.
• To its right is World of Coca-Cola — a 60,000-square-foot museum to the history of Coke.
• The tall building on the right is SunTrust Plaza — 60 stories high and home to Atlanta's World Trade Center.
• On the far right, in the middle, is the American Cancer Society headquarters (look closely to see its logo).
• And at the bottom right starts Centennial Olympic Park — a 21-acre urban park from the '96 Summer Olympics.

*Atlanta's only hotel with a helipad, mind you.

Rise and shine

I was startled to see Jackson already sitting at the table, when I walked into the kitchen at 6:30 this morning. His nose was burried in Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis, that he and Leslie checked out at the library yesterday.

I'm imagining his children seeing this picture in the future. They look up from their e-readers and say, "Dad, why are you staring at that stack of papers?"
