November 22nd

This is a wistful anniversary...it seems like so many things in history are repeating themselves (Vietnam anyone?), its hard to imagine a President who INSPIRED rather than infuriates.

I have went to the gravesite, and I was struck by the silent reverence with which everyone who visited the grave behaved. I was there on Memorial Day, 2003. The current president was speaking at the Tomb of the Unknowns (went through tons of security, did not see him, did not care to). The weather was hot and humid.

Time Machine Repairs - Or, what did I miss?

Been a while, mainly cuz the world is too damn depressing to write about. Hurricanes, wars, inept government...you take your pick. And while I LOVE seeing the Bush Administration squirm, (a) not enough blame in the world will change the fact that Americans and Iraqi's are dying; (b) we still have three more years of this idiot (unless I can repair my Time Machine); and (c) winter's a-coming!

So, going with my dear old Grammie's saying: "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything." I have been silent. But maybe, just maybe I can find the time to say a few things that are positive.

I will have to get back to you on that...

Mini-Vacation - Connecticut

We needed a break from the norm...Michael wanted to go visit the Peabody Yale Museum again...and, well, Chewy was feeling a tad overwhelmed...
