Me and my dad are going camping this weekend in the Wytheville, VA area. It's a compromise location with which neither of us are familiar. He's driving down, I'm busing up, and we'll be camping 2 nights. Does anyone have a favorite backcountry camping spot around there, maybe by a stream? (details follow) [more inside]

My friend and I are two intermediate piano players taking lessons with different teachers. We want to have fun and get better. We thought we would get together every month or so and play duets. This worked for a while but now I'm finding the time I need to prepare beforehand is too much. I'd still like to get together though, so what other piano activities can two pianists do (on one piano) that requires less (or no ) advance prep? Activities that help us become better musicians?

A few years ago, I came across the website of a German artist, female, who specialized in creating geometric artwork featuring very fine lines (think sweeping, 1pt lines). The only other things I remember are: 30ish in age, and had a non-standard German name, e.g. not something simple like "Anna Schmid". Anyone know her name and site?

I work at a company that uses Outlook and Exchange. I link my iPhone as well as my iMac at home. Everything was working great until lately. I've noticed that many of my events have been somehow converted into meetings. I'm suspecting my recent upgrade to Mavericks to be the culprit here. This brings to mind two important questions.
