I've been using the version control system Git for my little local projects. I had been using CVS and rcs before that. CVS is, as I understand it, just a convenience wrapper for rcs with some networking thrown in. I do know that CVS is much nicer than rcs but it's still not wonderful.
Then I tried SVN (Subversion) and worked with that for a while. Maybe there is a pattern here ...
We went to Battleship Cove on Saturday. I took a few pictures. Jonah and I went on board the ships, Karen decided to sit on a bench and watch. have to say that it's pretty strenuous climbing up and down all those ladders. I hadn't been in quite a few years and I guess I'm not nearly as limber as I used to be. The submarine, especially, was harder. I think they made the doors smaller or something! ;-)
We visited the Mark Twain House in Hartford, CT. There are two tours available, one of the main house itself and the other of the servants' quarters. We did both and they were very interesting. Unfortunately they did not allow any photographs inside the house but I did get a couple of a life-size sculpture of Sam Clemens done entirely in Lego.
