Happy Thanksgiving.US

The week has been rushed and greatly compressed. Partly this is because of how tired a felt on Monday after driving back from TWIL's on Sunday night. Well, it wasn't all from the drive, it was also due to the stress I had been under last week. {I'll tell you about some of it later, I'm still rushed right now.} As I'm sure happens to some of you as well, when I'm under a lot of stress and it is removed, my system relaxes and I start to feel very tired and rundown for a while.

The weekend with TWIL and The Sprout was great and at the end of it I had three people telling me I should stay. I would have stayed if it was possible, but I only had enough of my meds {I'm diabetic, remember?} to last until Wednesday or Thursday. So I came back for three days.

Now I'm getting ready to go head back. I'll be leaving in the next few minutes and will be there through the weekend.

Sounds like a Happy Thanksgiving.US to me.

Odds and Ends

It's been too long since I wrote anything, but I am kind of rushed right now and don't have time to write as much as I'd like. So let me just cover a few things that might be of interest.

I keep seeing news stories, web sites, etc. that make me think "I need to share this with someone." In some cases I feel like my head is going to explode if I don't pass some it along. However, I didn't want to clutter this journal with entries that do nothing but say "Check this out" so I started a new blog specifically for this purpose. You can find it at I have already made a couple of posts over there, so go check them out.

That blog is just using one of Blogger's standard templates for the moment while I do some final tweaking on the template for my journal. Once that is complete you will see both updated to use the new template. Then I'll get to work on the new CSS that so the look of the whole domain will be changing a lot. Although it might happen in stages.


I was in Salem, MA the weekend before Hallowe'en. I do not recommend this. Actually, I'm not sure I'd recommend Salem at any time during the month of October. But if you are going to go, the earlier in October the better.

I did enjoy myself, but that had more to do with watching the tourists in the crowd and listening to some of the things that were being asked and said. There was also a very good art show based around the theme of Hallowe'en and Terror. I also bumped into Daniel GreenWolf although I didn't have much time to catch up with him. {I know at least one of you will know him as well, although maybe not by that name.}


I also ran into my friend Fox and her daughter a couple of weeks before that while walking through Boston Common. We had somewhere around 4 years to catch up. Luckily neither of us were in a hurry and we had time to talk.


I'm heading out to spend the weekend with TWIL and The Sprout. I'm not sure what the plans for the weekend are other than TWIL and I will be going to see Sol Dog tomorrow night. {Great band, great guys, great CD}
