Some newness was in order

If you've visited my web site before, it may be wise to refresh your screen. The new layout is up, just in time for the holidays. Actually, I didn't change this around for Christmas... even though I tinkered with the design of the last layout, some visitors were still having problems with long upload times. The dial-ups were okay, but the DSL & networks were the troublemakers. It defies explanation.

Right now it's 2:30 in the morning, and for whatever reason, I can't sleep. I think I'm worries about all of the shopping I have yet to do. There are 18 people on my shopping list, and only one is crossed off. My grandma is getting a new George Foreman grill (hey, she wanted it) but I'm at a loss trying to find gifts for the other 15.

My head is starting to throb. That can't be good. I might take a couple Alleve (a.k.a. crack in a bottle) and read a little. I'm working on a book called The Moral Animal, which has been sitting neglected on my nightstand for about a month now. But I know I should also get my rest... it's a big shopping day tomorrow. Seriously, Jewish people have the right idea --focus on the significance of the holiday, and leave the glitzy hoopla to the idiots.


I love the new layout. Very pretty. :)

Yes,lovely new layout!

Hope you get the Christmas shopping done OK.

They said on our local news yesterday that Christmas shopping was expected to hit fever pitch in Leeds yesterday(Sunday)

I can assure you I did not need any further encouragement to stay home do the chores then spend the afternoon watching Jonathan again in "The Year That Trembled".Seemed like a good alternative to me.

Hope your headache's gone by now.
