Groundhog Day

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      8 comments

Today, 2 Feb, is Groundhog Day. If you believe the hype, if a groundhog sees its own shadow, we are in for 6 more weeks of winter. If it doesn't see its shadow, we will have an early spring. Either way, the official first day of spring is 20 Mar... Read more

After blogging yesterday about feeling poorly, I tried to get some sleep. Unfortunately, I couldn't sleep - spent over 2 hours with right lower quadrant abdominal pains. Actually looked up the symptoms of appendicitis and kidney stones. Now, I'... Read more

Staying Alive

Saturday, January 23, 2016      15 comments
