Some April This and That

Since April Fool's Day, I refereed and watched some soccer. The watching included two friendlies at the A-B Soccer Park in Fenton on 3 April: St. Louis U. vs. SIU-Edwardsville men, followed by AC St. Louis vs. Kansas City Wizards. Last Sunday (11 April), I was there to watch Saint Louis Athletica open WPS action with a 2-0 win over FC Gold Pride. The day before (10 April), I refereed two under-18 boys' games in Maryland Heights in a college showcase event. They went well; they were practically friendlies, intended for the players to show their stuff before college coaches in attendance.
You should notice something in new photos I'll have taken next week. Specifically, new eyeglasses. I had an eye exam done on 6 April -- the first time in about five years -- and the eyes are fine, apart from some nearsightedness in my left eye. I then ordered two pairs of glasses, which should come in the first half of next week.
I went to a networking event last Tuesday (13 April), where I got wind of a communications professionals networking group. That group has a meeting early next month, which I will attend, and maybe they can be of help to me in my job search.
Counting down the days until I start my US Census Bureau temporary job on 27 April, with four days of training. Should be interesting for about eight weeks.
Last Wednesday, I drove to Smartt Field, an airfield in Portage de Sioux, Missouri (St. Charles County) for a meeting of the Missouri Aviation Historical Society. It's a group that's been around a bit, and it was my second meeting I went to. I hope to see this group grow in the years ahead.
That's it for now. Later.
