*tap*tap* Hello? Is this thing on?

Just wondering if anyone’s out there. Since Ynnej has moved to a farm and Olya is in the outback, I expected to hear less from my readers, but it’s been so quiet around here for so many months, I’m wondering if this here journal has any readers left at all. I haven’t heard from readers […]

A 2008 holiday gift for our friends and family

Velma and I decided to do something a little different this year. Happy holidays to you and yours. This mini-site took me about 2.5 days for design, about 2 days for coding. I hope you enjoy it.

“Here’s an interesting case…”

Jason’s IM to me about (among other things) the Bush Administration’s move to gut the Endangered Species Act: I can see myself now in the old folks home, surrounded by med students. “Here’s an interesting case,” says the MD. “This fella can’t remember his own name and he drools on himself all day.

Restaurant review: Home

Meeting some friends at the corner of Market and Church for brunch, it was going to be between Sparky’s (which I love), Chow (which I like), and Home (which I’d never been to).

New list of friends et al

I finally updated my sidebar with a list of friends, colleagues, et al (see “con-conspirators” below-right).
