Dice Game Board

Game Board
I finally have the dice game board in electronic form. It is supposed to be on a 9 x 16 inch piece of wood. I printed this out on a 16 x 8.5 piece of paper and taped it to the wood and had Jacob burn through it. It took forever and he was getting real sloppy at the end. I'm sending this to the steel crazy guy in Syracuse to see if there is something he can do to make this work better.

Tracking Pollen in Salt Lake City

My eyes are getting itchy again. Last year I would check the pollen count every day and tracked when certain pollens were high and others were low. Based on my findings I have concluded that I am allergic to Cedar pollen. Early last year I went to see an allergist and they pricked me with dozens of things and I wasn't significantly allergic to anything (I'm pretty sure they didn't test me for tree pollen nor Cedar specifically). So I have to just "put up with it" unless I go to stage 2 of the testing which can be costly and painful.

The site where I get the pollen count is at Intermountain Allergy and Asthma however they don't have an rss feed for their pollen page, nor do they graph daily what the pollen count looks like. Seems like a pretty basic thing to provide and would give people a better idea at what they might be allergic to!

So I have started to track the pollen count myself and graph it. Starting today...
