I've abandoned this poor place.  As you can see, there was a bit of a remodeling today.  I figured the site could do with a little paint and a good bit of minimalism.  I'm stripping it all down to the bare essentials...which, in this case, is the text.  


In a couple of weeks I'm setting off to Washington DC.  It won't be my first time in the capital, but I still have a laundry list of items that I'm hoping to do while I'm there.  At the top of the list is Jefferson's home, Monticello, which I hear is quite beautiful.  Apart from the fact that it's Jefferson and I'm a huge American history nerd, I love the design of the building.  While there in Charlottesville, I'm hoping to visit the University of Virginia as well, which is arguably one of the most beautiful college campuses in the US and was established by Jefferson.


I'm hoping to do some writing about the trip when I return.  Stay tuned for that.
