January 25, 2008

Sorry to have missed class, but I was having a fun time in Costa Rica. We were able to see the lava flow from the active volcano in Arenal. Also saw scarlet macaws in flight, eating, and nesting (very cool). Barely saw howler monkeys and a sloth, as they were just balls of fur. And have a great photo of a hummingbird sitting on her nest, which is the size of a tennis ball. If my husband remembers to download the photos, I'll bring some to class. It was a great birthday present to us both, and we even were upgraded to first class for free on the way there.

It's been a bit busy this week playing catch up at work, so I didn't have time to finish the assignment. Instead I've posted some maps I made recently at work. Hopefully I won't be too far behind having missed the lecture.

January 18, 2008

I must say, I've missed coming to class. It is a very nice break after a long work week. I'm glad to have a variety of backgrounds in the class as well; I think it will make the course more interesting. I've been keeping busy at the office creating maps for a few other departments. The county also provided me with the 2001aerials, which is very beneficial. It will be interesting to compare them with the new 2007 aerials when they are ready for distribution.

Otherwise, sorry to be missing class next week but I'm off to Costa Rica for a week's vacation. It's a birthday present for myself and my husband. Have a great week!
