Today is that evil day. It’s the day that lots of people celebrate, and some people un-celebrate. I’ve always thought it strange when churches provide an “alternative” to Halloween celebrations.

It’s Picasso’s birthday today. Of course, if you use Google, this is no surprise to you. I really like the way they do the Google image for these events, and make the ordinary into something interesting.

This is Wednesday. This is the day that I drive the other car. The other car is that Volvo wagon, that rattles like a snake, and squeaks like a mouse and creaks like an old house. It’s not pretty, but it goes from here to there. It’s my sister’s car, that […]
