Ski Maine!

Friday, January 6th, 2012

A bit of a slow night tonight after a full day of skiing is allowing me to post some quick edits on the trip so far. More, as always, in the gallery.

The skiers for the week (minus the photographer), (R and Mom D are enjoying some quality condo time):

Light Pillars at Sunday River

Friday, January 6th, 2012

Enjoying our ski trip to Sunday River in Maine. Some fresh snowfall today added to the surface provided by copious snow-guns. This evening the snow changed to a fine crystal ‘mist’ which created these light pillars above the night skiers.

Scrabble Challenge

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Ok, I know I have many Scrabble geeks amongst my friends and family. Here is a challenge for you:

What is the largest contiguous block of letters (e.g. a rectangle with no empty spaces or extensions) that can be formed in Scrabble with only legal moves?


PS: I found these two discussions with a search, but they didn’t seem ‘conclusive’. I’m not sure if a ‘proof’ is possible here.
