I was going to post this at the end of last night, but the day got locked before I could post it, so here it is:

I'm watching "Pushing Daisies" right now [and I actually still am] .  So far, it's cute...and the lead guy is really cute. ;)

SORT OF SPOILER (BUT NOT REALLY)

When they showed Ned and Chuck as kids, I thought that Kristin Chenoweth was going to be Chuck all grown up, but she wasn't.  Kristin plays someone else. :)

TOTD:

CDs by John Denver or The Carpenters are often my music of choice at such times.

I've also used a CD by Tony O'Connor -  "Rainforest Magic " which is very soothing indeed.

DR DrawString - it was a good visit with my Dad. I went with my nephew and his wife in the morning and then with my cousin and his wife in the afternoon. Despite some confusion at times and definite short term memory problems, my Father was able to "connect" to many names and events mentioned.  In the morning he was at first unable to remember the names of his siblings.  In the afternoon he was giving their other given names and reciting dirty ditties! (He was a ventriloquist and entertainer in his younger years). He is still on no medication and able to walk well and sit himself down in, and get up from, a normal lounge chair.
He does have a "Walker frame" he is supposed to use but he usually forgets! He is now the oldest resident in his hostel. At 101 he is is quite remarkable and quick witted!

From Larry yesterday:

It has a 20 inch screen and the following:
    * 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    * 1GB memory
    * 320GB hard drive1
    * 8x double-layer SuperDrive
    * ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory


It means you have a fast computer with a very nice amount of memory (2 gigs would have been even better but that comes at a price), a nice, large hard drive for all those nude pictures musical scores you might download  ;), a drive that will let you burn CDs and DVDs (including double layer discs) and a graphics card with lots of memory so you should be able to view things quickly and nicely.

Hi, Fred. See you tonight. I was worried for a minute that you might not be there since you'll be in Baltimore all day but you qualified that in a later post.

BTW - Jeff's Rose was in bloom last October in the Portland Rose Garden. I assume it is in bloom again now.

Very warm here already this morning.  And of course it is a work day.

Thanks for sharing the story about your father, DR TOMovOZ.

Well, obviously I was using definition #1.
