Well, it seems the database problems continue….

Yahoo! servers wonky again?

Thursday, March 29th, 2007

OK.
By now I figure most of you reading this thang haven’t a clue. Rest assured, though—neither do I!
I woke up this morning with the O Fortuna! theme from Carl Orff’s CARMINA BURANA (I know you know it, even if you don’t know you know it, at least not by name) playing in my head.

Friday, March 2nd, 2007

Mark has brought home the goods: Why Autodynamics Is Wrong, Totally, Utterly And Most Importantly Demonstrably.

Christians Bombed My House!

OK, not really.
But they did come by and leave a booklet entitled “Power For Living” in my mailbox the other day while I was a work.
