A nice Easter yesterday... For the first time in a while, we weren't up at some unusual hour (the guys were; but they're learning)! ...and the boys were pleased with their loot (as was Shelley with her Chickie). Cool.

We spent most of the day at the boys' godmother's place with more of the extended family. Yep, food, the egg hunt, dessert, chatting, the whole bit. It was a very pleasant way to spend the day. ...and much of the evening.

Maybe a pic or two later...


My thanks to John Vogt (and my apologies to others) who came in through this entrance Sunday and then got caught in a 404 error following the bread crumb trail through the Easter splash page. I'd made a change in how I'll be archiving the splash pages and missed on section of the template. Fixed and with a Easter morning shot as a makeup...

...crazy weather here. We're picking up thunderstorms every week now. ...and then clear days. ...and then another round of rainy ones. It's been interesting. least the neighbors are getting used to the crazy guy with the camera out wandering around between the showers <g>...

...but yeah, I skipped last night!


Well now... I think I have one of the email problems cleared up. ...but I'm unsure of the cause of the other apparent problem. Allow me to restate the basic policy regarding emails to the domains: My intent is to respond to all personal correspondence within twenty-four hours. Some weeks that stretches to forty-eight, but that's rare. Even rarer is me putting aside an email for a researched response and forgetting/losing it. ...but it does happen.

What brings this up, you ask? Well, with some very diligent cross-checking with a friend on AIM (and me on GAIM <g>), we determined that at least one portion of the Cox network wouldn't deliver mail from me. Whether that is related to the weather, phase of the moon, an old spyware outfit with a similar domain name, or just WT?, is still open to speculation. ...but I cannot find anywhere where I'm blackholed and other users of the same network get my mails just fine.

I didn't worry too much about it with my cross-checker: we both use multiple accounts and servers; it was an easy enough matter to switch. ...but then another long term correspondent emailed and asked if I'd changed my long term policy of twenty four hour response. Umm... No... Most curious...

So. Just a public notice while I test here and there from time to time: If you haven't heard back from me in a day or so, please let me know. I'll be happy to tell you that I'm ignoring you, if I truly am.

...but that is most unlikely, -neh?


We can now add another item to the very short list of medications I need to stay away from: ClaritinD. Oh, yeah... I started in with the twelve hour variety after my pusher fronted me some Monday on the recommendation of my dealer sister. By Tuesday afternoon, I was a tweak case. Whew...

Yeah, no fun at all. ...and it must be the loratadine or some interaction with the pseudoephedrine, since pseudoephedrine and I go back a long way. ...but I tell you, I was in an altered state from around noon on and I haven't really come back to normal just yet. Sure, that leaves open the definition of 'normal'; but you get my drift...'s hoping for a low key Thursday at work!


Long days and long evenings this week. ...and thirty-one school days left someone's count. Certainly not ours; we just see eternity <g>.

...and I'm off to the DMV this fine morning. Yeah, once more into the fray. Nah, it's really not that bad at all. Really. ...why won't people believe me?

Hmmm... No yard sale this weekend since the weather doesn't seem to want to cooperate. ...but prep for next weekend. ...and sleep. Oh, yes, sleep...

Have a pleasant Friday, wherever you are...


Man, one little "," and you can be gone into programmers hell for hours...

Yeah, I guess that's a post <g>...


It's turning into a bit of a "Lost Weekend" here... No, not like the movie, just plans getting sidetracked and apparently much needed recharging going on.


As Shelley says, "It'll all be there to do tomorrow."; but she's usually talking about things at work rather than things at home...

Ah, well; I'd best try to get to some of it...
