The other day my wife, Gidget, started tellin’ me about this time, a few years ago, when the two of us went on a vacation to Peru.  We met some friends there, went hiking, saw Machu Picchu, and then later ate some fried bananas on a beach. 

While we were there, she got food poisoning, and I got a pretty bad sunburn that landed both of us in the Emergency Room.

APSU’s New HSC Building Wins Prestigious Design Award

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Most Austin Peay State University students aren’t relying on the sundial atop the new Hemlock Semiconductor Building to get them to class on time, but Tom Bauer, with Bauer Askew Architecture PLLC, said his firm didn’t want to take any chances. They spent months researching and designing the sundial tower, which serves as a symbol of the solar technology being taught inside the facility, to make sure the archaic time-telling tool was as accurate as possible.
