It's now after September 22, which means that officially, IT'S FALL (that's the same as Autumn for those down under!!!!!). So, the first immediate questions for us here in Omaha are:
Stay tuned......all of these, plus many other exciting questions will be answered over the next three months. So, cruise the page, and remember to come on back soon!!!!
The main highlights of fall this year are as follows:
October 7, 2001
This is the first post for fall of 2001. It's a beautiful day here in Omaha (well, relatively beautiful anyway). So, we thought that we'd show you the house for the last time, as well as some of the "turning of the leaves". So, have a peek at our house for probably the last time this year in sunshine and no snow!!!!
See ya all back for Halloween and the trip down under!!!
October 8, 2001
Well, the news of the day on October 8, 2001, was that the incorporation procedures for our company were finally completed. So, as of now, Stephisa Technologies, Inc, is now a legal, Incorporated entity in the state of Nebraska. We haven't got our web site up and running yet...that's the next thing. But, we have retained the services of a corporate attorney and a corporate accountant. Typical, the bureaucracy has to be sated before you can actually do anything!!! Anyway, our company logo is now a registered trade mark...so you all be nice out there!!!!
So, expect to see more on this over the coming months!!!! So, come on back and see what's going on.

Just to prove that we do actually do actually get some culture here in Omaha, we went to this year's last play at the Loft Theater, in Manly, Nebraska. This is a group of local amateurs that runs out of a converted hog barn (and no, we are not joking) who always do fantastic job on all their productions
As you can see, it really is a converted hog barn....cold in Spring and Fall, but hotter than hell during the summer!!! By the way, the map shows where Manly Nebraska, is. Because of weather conditions, they can only do four shows a year. After October, it's too cold. So, unfortunately, that's the last of the "culture" stuff until May next year. Good thing football season is in full swing!!!
October 20- October 31, 2001
This was the trip of the year. Stephen went down under to visit the folks and attend the 20th year school reunion. While it was great catching up with family and friends, the school reunion was a complete waste of time, money and exercise. It's amazing how little some people have changed in twenty years. Overall, catching up with family and friends more than compensated for the reunion function.
So, you say, where are the holiday snaps. Well, Einstein here forgot to take his camera...also, Lisa is the only one with a digital camera. So, whatever photos there are few and far between. Thank god I here people say. Before you start dancing in the street, though, we did get some photos, mainly of family and friends. So, here we go
So, that's the some total of holiday snaps from down-under. As it wasn't really a "tourist" trip, we're not really disappointed that there are not more "landscape" snaps. This was a trip to see family.
What we will say, finally, though, is that the 30 hour trip (each way) is a real killer. Never make the trip unless you can spend at least two weeks down under. Otherwise, the trip will just kill you.
November 9-10, 2001
Having returned home from down under, we were looking forward to a period of rest and recuperation. But, that was not to be so. Within an week we were off to Moline, IL for a friends 40th birthday and to Cedar Rapids for a wedding. Both were fun, but came a little too soon after the down under trip.
For those of you who are "geographically" challenged, the following map should show our trip route for this weekend.
So, having made it to Moline, IL on November 9, it was then time to party for JJ's 40th birthday. No names have been included on the thumbprints to protect the innocent...also, the people involved will know who the folks are.
So, having survived the birthday party, it was time to head of to Cedar Rapids on November 10 (complete with hangover) for a family wedding. It was a good night..
