3 Ole Miss iPhone Wallpapers

Posted by on Jan 6, 2009 in Ole Miss | 5 comments

Decided to add a few Ole Miss pics as wallpaper on my iPhone today.. Ended up, my decision was the easiest part…Locating the images, formatted correctly (ie. 320×480 pixels), was the bear. Cause very few exist. So I decided to create my own. Once I created’em, though, I kinda liked them, and thought others might like to use them too. So, they found their way here. 2 are from our own snapshot collection (thanks to Derek Moreton), and the other a stock University image (the Ole Miss helmet). (instructions on how to add to an...

94% Said We Couldn't … We Did

Posted by on Jan 2, 2009 in Ole Miss | 4 comments

Yes, I do love Oxford. And yes, I love my University. Right now, I’ll have to say, … I’m particularly in love with our football team. When Texas Tech jumped up by 14 in the first, I was concerned.

Howorths' Featured in NYTimes

Posted by on Dec 26, 2008 in Oxford | 1 comment

Woke up this morning, wiped the daze from Xmas off my face (a good daze), and stumbled on a great NY Times piece on Oxford – which, if you remember, Rachel correctly alluded to a few weeks back. Actually, the article involves Oxford, but (more) centers on Mayor Howorth and his wife (and previous professor of mine) Lisa, and their contribution to the literary scene around town over the past several years.. The online article can be found here (although you have to register to read in its entirety) and an accompanying photo collection...
