Again, first things first:
1) As many of you know, I'm job hunting after moving to Rochester. So, I've put my resume off to the left side of the blog at the top. I've also started another blog, which essentially is just my resume at: www.MikeKrausResume.blogspot.com in case you know of anyone hiring.
2) Like me on Facebook is also to the left.
Rich, Megan and I headed over to Mount Hope Cemetery for some historic Rochester fun. If you're in town or interested in more info, you should check out Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery at www.fomh.org/, which gave us our tour. It's the first municipal cemetery in the United States and this is a pic of the gatehouse.
Since cemeteries use to double as city parks, this gazebo was a place to hang out
Some fall colors with Mt. Hope's "permanent residents"

Hiram Sibley. It's not the department store guy Rochestarians. This is the guy who started Western Union Telegraph.
Keeney was the lucky guy who arrested Susan B. Anthony for voting.
Here's the old gal; Susan B. Anthony. Don't know who she is or why she's important; you should be ashamed and go to this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_B._Anthony
Here's Frederick Douglass. Again, if you don't know who he is or why he's important; you should question your educational background and go to this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Douglass
George Ellwanger's grave. Very fitting site since George use to own the property across the street, which grew pretty trees like you see here through the Ellwanger and Barry Company.
The grave of Bausch and Lomb. You know, the eye care folks
Under the tree
The chapel. We were here for a couple hours and didn't even see half of this place. It's 198-acres with a bunch of other people of local and national importance including George Washington's drummer boy...
Rachel had to go home sick, which meant I had babysitting duties last week. So, once we completed her homework, we played Candyland, Barbie, fixed a projector, and had an intellectual conversation about Spongebob Squarepants
Rachel as the afro-airplane!
Megan and I went to St. Bonaventure University near the southern border of New York state to watch a soccer game with her friend Liz, who's sister is the "Bonnie's" assistant coach
The Bonnies beat Dayton

See this Ewok/Gremlin looking thing? It's named Gertie and we took care of her for a few days and sometimes she liked it because we played with her. Sometimes she didn't when she seemed to try to spite me by peeing on the floor. GERTIE!!!
