Yeah, I saw that on the news when they showed the China protests, and I figured that might be odd. Here near Seattle we got a fair amount of snow last weekend. Not at all normal, but at least it'll extend the ski season. I just hope it doesn't mean a mild summer again like last year.

I hope you remember all the good times (and even some of the naughty kitty moments ).

As for blogs, I visit this one pretty often:

Haven't got a digital camera so I can't do immediate pictures but my wife's taken some with her ordinary camera so may be able to at some point in the future.



Thank you everyone, for the kind words. (it does help)


Speaking of snow, supposedly, we've had the "snowiest" winter Illinois has had in the past ten years. I am definitely, looking forward to spring.

Dear AG blog. I flossed today, and now I can feel my heartbeat "throbbing" in my sore gums. Damn you floss! Damn you to hell!

I just got back from Indiana. There's always something a tad unsettling about being on a bridge in the middle of a "river", and seeing nothing but deep, choppy water and half-submerged trees, well, as far as the eye can see.

EDIT:

Oh. My. Gawd.

Mr J works out of town this week, including weekend. And it's boring being at home by myself. (My son's out with friends and my daughter can't let go of the telephone) I can't wait until he gets a new job, which might be very soon. Nothing confirmed yet.
So tonight, it'll be me, a grilled sandwich, half a bottle of red wine and George Clooney.

Hmmm, that's odd. When my husband is out of town, George Clooney comes to visit me, as well. He must be a busy man, that Mr. Clooney.


I've decided not to be involved in this year's film festival. As much as I love screening films for the competition, it takes up a lot of time, and I don't like what's happening behind the scenes with certain staff members and Board interference. Why is it that as soon as there's a modicum of power to be had, everything goes to hell? It would be tragic if it weren't so damn laughable. Idiots.
On the bright side, we can actually leave for weeks at a time without causing a major festival crisis. Free! I'm freeeeee!

We now return to your regular program.

I just found out that the big, beautiful old tree that dominates our back lawn is sick and must be cut down.

I guess you don't live in the Anne Frank House then.

We have a similar situation with a cherry tree in our back yard. Hopefully it'll survive another year, but it's not likely.
Cutting down a big tree sure changes the entire area/garden and doesn't feel good at all.
I think I'll join you in a frown:

Dear Aggie

I'm sorry I haven't been around lately. I've been far more busy than I should be helping to build a brand new Hordeside World of Warcraft guild, Kharma, which frankly takes up more of my time and concentration than it should. Hopefully things will settle down soon and I can get back to doing important stuff.

My wife and I set up the guild's website, which is HERE. I designed the banner myself, and did a lot of organizing the forums and stuff, hashing out guild policy and fun stuff like that. We've been up and running for a few weeks and we're already discussing a possible merger with another small guild at about the same stage as we are in the game. Could be disaster, could be cool.

Meanwhile, I haven't done much of anything else that needs doing. I have an appointment today, but other than that, I'm just trying to get myself in the right frame of mind to take care of business for a change. I'm just sitting here, sipping cold tea and listening to very old, rather weird Pink Floyd music from the late 60s and thinking I need to get cleaned up soon. Zero motivation. *sigh*

Edward Lorenz, the father of chaos theory, died at his home in Cambridge, Mass., Wednesday. He was 90.

Today is the best day I've had in a year. We had to take our daughter into the city to see the pulmonologist, have a chest x-ray, breathing test, etc., and today we got the news that she can go off her medication. We'll take her back to the specialist in about four months to make sure all is continuing well, but--I can't articulate the relief and joy that I feel. It's like I had steel bands running through my entire body, keeping me upright during this long nightmare, and the bands are finally beginning to dissolve. Nothing has ever meant more to me.
Drinks on the house!

Congratulations Marricat! I know what you've gone through; my parents went to some of those ordeals with me.

Good news Merricat. I'm glad for you and your family.

As promised, here are a couple of snowy pictures from the arctic waste that is the UK.

The view from the room I'm in now. (A lot less snowy today)



Our back garden. Chairs on the left. The peculiar thing in the middle is a snow-laden rotary drier. The mysterious glow at the top of the picture is the kitchen light (my wife sensibly took this picture from indoors. It's reflecting on the window)

Last Saturday it was 80 degrees in some parts of the greater Seattle area. The last three days? Snow--go figure.
