    Outside it is current 8F but feels like -3F with the wind chill. Inside my office it feels like it is 20F. <insert shivering smilie>

    I'm clutching my cup of tea, my coat is across my lap, and I'm wearing my scarf. BRRR.

    I use it, and it's good stuff. It's citrus-y, not poop-y.

    According to the Georgetown Center for Education and the Workforce, recent grads with degrees in architecture have the highest unemployment rate at nearly 14%. LINK. I'm not surprised, but can't help but wonder what is currently going through the minds of hopeful architecture grads...

    Shoelace? With those temps, he sandals may be more appropriate.

    If it's anything like what I recently experienced, graduation was a very bitter-sweet moment. But like any low point, you press on and work with what you can

    Hey Otis!

    Hey Otis.....neighbors from around your piece of this earth are on their way to Club Bear. My son, his wife, and my youngest grand-daughter are in a rental mobile on the Ohio Turnpike, driving from Akron to Swanton. Should be here around 10:30 PM. Woo-hoo! First time seeing Mathew in a couple years. (They live in Lake Oswego, 'burb of Portland.)

    NOTE: Yes, my son spells his name with a single "t". Wife Version 1.0 (Cynthia) was very adamant about that. Long time ago.....he is in his 40s.

    In college I knew a fellow named Mathew that went by "Math" instead of "Matt" (or "Mat").

    Is physics responsible for how bird poop can end up on the first floor window of an 18-story building?

    Sounds like something for MythBusters.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I pulled my back out on New Years Eve while reaching down to put mini-skis blankie back into the stroller, and it is still bugging the heck out of me. My chiropractor is on vacation until next week. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I did the same thing around X-mas, but it was from running on a treadmill without stretching. Do you know if it is a muscle pull or mis-alignment of the spine?

    In my case my spinal column was out of alignment and the Chiro (who's also my GF- go figure) told me to ice the affected area to reduce the swelling.

    When she put my back in there was a loud pop that totally creeped me out.. she said I was so out of alignment that my left leg was 1.5 inches longer than my right one.

    Yes, the bird is always responsible. It's the same power that allows them to hit a freshly washed car too.

    Boy, despite my attempts at maintaining a positive attitude since New Years I have had to deal with some real pieces of work. I can already tell the storm of the century is heading my way this afternoon, time to strap in and have my code requirements ready...

    It's 59 degrees in my home office. The heat should kick on at 63 degrees, but the thermostat is downstairs where it's warmer. That whole thing about hot air rising is just, er, hot air when you have poor insulation on the top floor.

    Dear spammers -- yes, I know I just turned 55. This does not mean that I have any interest in learning about your products.

    That was in just five minutes of e-mail! Sheesh.

    We are going to owe the state and feds on taxes this year even with an education credit. Beats not having a job, though!

    I think it is a spine thing. I messed up my spine in a bad ski accident when I was younger. (resulted in knee surgery and other issues) A friend of mine suggested one of those inverted tables, so I might give that a shot too.

    I've been following the story of C/V Rena since she ran aground on the Astrolabe reef of Tauranga, New Zealand* in early October. I've been amazed they were able to remove as much oil as they have and as many cargo containers as they have. Rena has now broken --though she's still sitting above the reef -- and will be hit by 7 meter waves asa low-pressure system passes through soon. You can find a link to TVNZ here, to follow for yourself.
