In so many ways.
First, my wife and I, who had originally planned to stay in Arizona through April, when she’s taking a trip to Europe with her mom and brother, decided last week that it was time to change that plan1, and rolled a few hundred miles west to Santee, California. We got settled on Saturday, explored our surroundings a bit on Sunday before watching the Patriots lose the Super Bowl2, eating too much, and planning some running routes for the week.
Santee is an awesome place to run. Aside from the beautiful weather and the fact that our RV park is also a city park3 right in the midst of town with a bunch of lakes to run around, there are a half dozen other parks within running range, bike lanes and sidewalks a go-go, and a population that yields at the slightest hint that a runner might want to cross the street. I ought to stop picking on Californians for a while. I think I’m going to like it here.
Secondly, Ramblings From the Road has moved! I’ve been meaning to ditch GoDaddy for a while, because, well, they are really just an unpleasant organization. So I moved hosting over to bluehost (as you may have noted from the new favicon). Thus far, things seem to be going well. I learned the hard way that WordPress does not keep it’s images in the database, so the “easy migration” wasn’t actually easy – after attempting WP native migration and a full mySQL import migration, I realized that I’d have to manually download all the images from the old server and upload them here. I think I got everything, but if you notice anything amiss, please leave me a comment or pop me on twitter to let me know.

- Make no mistake. The Giants didn’t win that game. The Patriots lost it. And it wasn’t a “good game” either. Both playoff games were good. But the Super Bowl was a crap game where both teams played poorly. The Giants just screwed up less. And Manning wasn’t MVP – the only reason the Giants won was that Pierre-Paul guy. And most of all, I hate that I care this much. I don’t even like football. I just like watching my wife watch the Pats. ↩
