October 1, 2002: The Naming of the SGL Mascot

And for the month of October…


Leanne wins the LotM competition by naming the Llama mascot. The llama was supposed to be named for September but I got behind in choosing a name from those submitted. A number of people tried to submit after the dealine because they were lazy but they weren’t considered since most of them don’t read the site often enough to have submitted the name on time. Shame on you. There were a number of entries so don’t feel bad if yours wasn’t picked. I know that everyone thinks that they were the only one to write in but that just isn’t the case.

The Llama Mascot of Sheep Guarding Llama is RAUL.

Expect to see pictures of Raul appearing in our pages in the near future. I was extremely busy today and just couldn’t get to it. And my scanner is broken so there are a lot of other pictures that you almost got to see but didn’t. I will be home on Friday.

I knew that I was going to be busy today. Eric and I are leaving for Pittsburgh first thing in the morning tomorrow so today is my last day to get prepared for the trip. By 10:30 this morning, I had already added two meeting in Canton, Ohio on Thursday to the agenda. So this is going to be a very busy and very productive trip indeed.

In addition to all of the work that I got done today, I also managed to copy a lot of CDs into my Ogg Vorbis radio system. I have been using the system almost continuously for weeks now and I really love it. It isn’t playing while I am writing this because I am using its station to install the Beta of Windows .NET Server so that I can try that out. I haven’t had a lot of time to look at .NET Server yet but so far it is pretty nice compared to a lot of past MS products. It is most similar to Windows XP but it is definitely a different animal under the hood.

Dominica is knitting like a fiend again today. She is trying to see if she can make a sweater in just two days. She just might make it. She has quite a bit of it done already.

Eric and I are heading out early in the morning. Eric is dropping his car off here at the Llama House at 7:30am and then we are heading straight to Pittsburgh. It is a long day but not all that long. Our meeting is at 2:30 so we will have some room for error there. We will be staying at the Holiday Inn in Oakland as usual tomorrow night. Then we will be heading to Canton, Ohio (where my family is from) first thing in the morning to make an early meeting with Mercy Hospital and then an afternoon meeting with Aultman Hospital. It will be a very busy day indeed.

There will most likely not be an update tomorrow – or not much of one at least – as I will be out of town.
