Thank-YOU Howard Dean!Here it is again, incase you missed the clickable link: Sammy's Torah Procession .
Oh, good! The directions were *clear enough*!! I'd worried that perhaps they weren't.
Da Goob let me *sleep in* til seven this morning, bless his heart. Beautiful cool green day going on out there. No rain predicted until tomorrow. Guess I should make hay, eh?
Odd--Safari works fine for comments using my iMac, but not my MacBook. On the latter (which I am using now), Safari doesn't work but Firefox does. Go figure; some sort of settings tech stuff, I suppose. I don't see Gravatar ID settings here, so am using Anonymous.Hoping for a bit of a break at work today; Tuesday we had a potful of work from the local police, and Wednesday from the SF Bay Area agencies. (I packed it in at 9:30 PM last night.)Off to San Diego again next week, for another court martial. They issued my travel orders and tickets, which I consider pretty decisive.We pick up our new ride today.Gotta run.Alan in CA

Prayers please for our 7.5 wk old Baby Cats. We heard today that they have bacterial pneumonia and may or may not make it. :-( They are on antibiotics and receiving steam treatments. Poor little kitties. This is not how this was supposed to go, y'know?
Best of wishes for them.
Dang, listener! Prayers on the way.
Thanks. =^. .^=Kitten update: The brother of our two has died. :-(Ours are the only remaining from the litter of seven.
Got back from Baltimore around noon yesterday. Spent the rest of the day unpacking, catching up on e-mail, and doing laundry. Catching up on everything else today.An enjoyable trip on the whole. There are drawbacks to spending almost the whole con sitting at a bid table, but it gives you a chance to talk to a lot of people you'd otherwise never meet. And I got a lot of reading done on the trains and other times not much was going on. Finished China Meiville's Embassytown, one of this year's Hugo-nominated novels, as well as three nominated novelettes. And one of the nice things about train travel is the people you meet in the diner. Coming back I had dinner with a retired couple. The guy is an avid science fiction fan who has never been to a con -- but because we met, he may show up in Chicago for this year's Worldcon over Labor Day.
Love trains! And my five years at Amtrak was wonderful at least in part because of the rail pass. . . . Can't use it during peaks, and only good for basic. But once you've got basic, bumping up to a sleeper isn't all that expensive. . . .And welcome back! Glad you had a good time.
Sounds really nice, Bill!As for me, I used to go up to seminary by train, from Essex Junction up to Montreal (McGill University) and back. Truth is I never really enjoyed the ride as it seemed so jostle-y. Then there was the time we had to wait because there was a cow on the tracks and by the time I got there it was time to turn around and head home. But I got there and back just about as often as I needed to.
Oh, noes. So sorry. He was so purty! Tell your babies to hang in there!
A. E. Housman (1859–1936). A Shropshire Lad. 1896. II. Loveliest of trees, the cherry now LOVELIEST of trees, the cherry now Is hung with bloom along the bough, And stands about the woodland ride Wearing white for Eastertide. Now, of my threescore years and ten, Twenty will not come again, And take from seventy springs a score, It only leaves me fifty more. And since to look at things in bloom Fifty springs are little room, About the woodlands I will go To see the cherry hung with snow. ~~~~~~~~~~~~If Housman was right about that three score years and ten, I'm livin' on borrowed time. . . . Have always loved this one though.
"And if by reason of strength it be four score ..." But even that doesn't compute these days -- if it ever did. Personally, I have no intention of admitting I might have less than 20 years left.
Daughter's last day of school was today. Son is studying for finals. I start training for a match scoring project on Saturday. And I wrote this todayhttp://bitesizethinkings.blogspot.com/2012/05/bereavement-and-best-of-intentions.html
Sure wish I knew WHY "Reply" works sometimes but not most often. So strange!Sure wish I knew whether our Baby Cats are going to make it or not! It's really unnerving that their Brother died, especially as it's been weeks since the last one did. =Heavy Sigh=
