Emma Jean Long

•January 16, 2010 • 3 Comments

On Thursday, January 14th, Emma Jean Long was born at 2:43 PM.  She measured 19 inches and weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces, most of it hair.  She is healthy–sleeping and eating well.  Thanks to everyone who joined in on the contest.  The numbers are in and the winner by unanimous decision is … Diane, Kristy’s former boss!  Diane said in her post, “This is fun! I’m Diane, Kristy’s boss, and I hope I win.”  And she did.  Diane, you have won a 25 dollar gift card to the retailer of your choice and the right to say you guessed best.  Congratulations!

Baby Long Contest

•December 14, 2009 • 58 Comments

This is my beautiful wife, Kristy.  We are expecting our first child.  We thought it would be a lot of fun to have a contest in which our friends and family guess the gender, weight and time of birth of the baby.  A bit of info: we do not know the gender of the baby; the official due date is January 11th, 2009.  Each person who guesses will get points based on the accuracy of their guesses.  The person who gets the most points will win a $25 gift card to the retailer of their choice!  Here is the points breakdown:

5 points for correctly guessing the gender

10 points to start for guessing the date of birth minus 1 point for each day off target

24 points to start for guessing the time of birth (regardless of date) minus 1 point for each hour off target

10 points to start for guessing the weight of the baby minus .25 points for every ounce off target

Post your answers on this blog as a reply to this post.  See the first reply below for an example.  Email calamusink@gmail.com if you have any questions or can’t figure out how to reply.

Good luck and we can’t wait to introduce Griffin Michael or Emma Jean Long to the world..

I went trouncing through the woods this week in the soggy rain and took a few photos:

Mushrooms

Found these mushrooms in my backyard and thought they would make perfect little subjects for some photography.  Anyone know what type of mushrooms these are?  I wonder if they are edible.

Hey guys,

I have two Google Voice invites to send out. I’d LOVE to trade one for a Google Wave invite.

P.S. Google, please tell me if it isn’t cool to trade invites.
