Once again, I seem to have forgotten that I even own a website. November 2010 was the last time I wrote in here. guess I just haven’t had much to say. So much has been going on in my life and the lives of my precious family.
I have recently updated my website from handwritten HTML/PHP to a CMS (Content Management System). This certainly makes my life easier. As I get older, I seem to get lazier with regards to coding. Why hand code your pages when there is no longer a need. As a comparison, why use an Atlas or a paper map and a hi-lighter when you can simply use a GPS. Technology has certainly made our lives easier in so many ways.
As the summer approaches, our family is bracing for a big change… to be announced at a later date once everything is final. Enough for now…
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
You know, being on convalescent leave is not too bad. I mean, I get paid to lay around the house and get better. In fact, I got 18 days off for free. These days don’t count against my 30 days annual paid vacation, which is a good thing.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all good… I did run out of my drugs yesterday, and my knee hurts. The swelling persists, today is day number 8, since surgery. Walking still is a task, assisted by crutches you’ll see me hobbling around.
I think the worst thing, other than the pain, is not being able to take a shower. I am addicted to hot showers, and not being able to take a shower is driving me crazy. What I do, is stick half my body in the shower, with my bad leg out with the knee wrapped so it will not get wet, and shower that way. Hopefully, next week after my follow up I will be able to take a shower. It gets boring laying around the house.
What a boring Columbus Day. Not that I’m celebrating this day. hey, it’s another paid day off work. While reading about Columbus on Columbus Day, I stumbled upon the following:
8. Columbus was an opium addict, the same drug used in producing modern-day heroin.
9. There is genetic evidence that Columbus and his men brought the sexually transmitted disease Syphilis to Europe.
What an amazing hero! Just today’s thoughts…
We have been plagued with an unusually dry summer this year. Finally it has been raining all day, and there is a HUGE glob of green and yellow on the Weather Channel’s radar and it’s a welcome site. I’m sure the farmers could always use some rain. The sound of rain on the roof also helps me sleep.
We moved to Virginia. From Japan, we got here on July 4th. Finally moved in our house, finally got CABLE & Internet. More later… I almost forgot I even had a blog.
