WOW! Last time I wrote a blog post here was 09/09/09. Time to revive this blog. I have had a thing for 11/11 ever since my dad died. The day he died was on 11/11 and at that time he had 11 children and 11 grandchildren. Whenever I notice a digital clock showing 11:11 I remember […]
04/04/04 I usually like to note these notable dates with a blog post. I remember in 04/04/04 I wrote my first blog post with a Six Apart serice called TypePad. I had been a beta tester of that blogging tool before that. Too bad that when I stopped paying for their service all my posts […]
I posted all the information and links I could find about emerald ash borer beetles and ash trees over on my ComoPark.us website. There are a lot of ash trees in Como Park and in Saint Paul (50,000 I think). Minnesota has more ash trees than all other states except for Maine.
I went to the town hall meeting at the Como Park Pavilion Sat. morning, Feb 28, 2009. Senator Ellen Anderson addressed the group then responded to questions and made note of suggestions. Town Hall Meeting, Ellen Anderson from Art Oglesby on Vimeo.
Last fall the City of Saint Paul explained the process for redeveloping the Como Park swimming pool. The adjacent Woodland Classroom and McMurray Field area along with their parking and traffic needs will be included in the redesign. I put up a video and explanation of the Como Pool replacement process at comopark.us. I applied […]

Como Park is almost too much of a good thing judging from the traffic and parking congestion. I just wrote […]
My wife, Ann Mayhew, and I went to a Schweiss Reunion in Minnesota the first Saturday in August, 2008. Ann’s mother was a Schweiss and had lots of brothers and sisters. Dick Schweiss has a Schweiss genealogy website if you want the total picture. To see photos and videos of the Schweiss reunion go to […]
I went to help with the Burdock Bust behind the Como Park Pool this morning at 9 am. I decided to video tape what they were doing instead and write it up for my COMOPARK.US website. The video can be seen by clicking below. Burdock Bust at the Como Park Woodland from Art Oglesby on […]
I first started reading Nova Spivack‘s blog “Minding the Planet” when I was beta testing Six Apart’s Typepad blogging tool. I remember a post in 2004 titled, “Minding the Planet: From Semantic Web to Global Mind”. I have been waiting four years to be part of this vision and my wait is almost over. Over […]
