Square Inc. thinks I am on an electronics diet, they sent one envelope, hold the contents...

I have signed up for a Square Inc. account, that allows people to take credit cards for everyday transactions.  It sounds like a great deal, and once I have the little iPhone credit card swiper/reader, it will help me with both personal and business transactions. However, actually getting a reader appears to be a little more tricky than I first thought.

 

Working the Fall '10 KHSU fundraising drive

Had a team of coworkers with me from NCIDC working the phones at KHSU this morning. I spent an hour on the air from 8-9am, following President Rollin Richmond's segment*.  I was worried that I would choke on the air, but it went pretty smoothly, the time flew by, and I think we reached our goals in both of the hours I worked! Did you hear my segment? Comments, good and bad, both accepted with grace, dignity, and a lot of beer after work. :) (the chocolate was a bribe for one particular coworker who is not pictured, except for the hand holding the gold foil-wrapped chocolate cigar, you have to guess who that is).

* Rollin gave me my first look at the new Android phone during a break.  He just switched from an iPhone and I was very interested to see how similar it was to the iPhone.  The big plus for him is he does not have to deal with AT&T reception any more, the Android works on Verizon!

Last Speeder Run of the Year

Logan and I went to Samoa this morning to take a ride on the last day of Speeder runs for the year. It was a real blast. The views were great, the speeder was interesting, and the volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. Dan Hauser was the tour guide narrating the trip. After the speeder run, we toured the Round House, the caboose, and all the other interesting exhibits the volunteers of the Timber Heritage Association have made available to the public. I hope that the THA is able to continue to work with the North Coast Rail Authority to open more sections of track around the bay. The crowds were thick, the speeder cars were full, and people were waiting in line for the next run. Obviously a popular activity for locals and tourists alike.
