I saw that a lot of you were upset by the death of Steve Irwin, "The Crocodile Hunter". Tom McMahon at 4-Block World had what I felt was a fitting tribute. From my perspective, though I'm not much of a nature TV buff (not since Marlon Perkins and "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom"), Steve Irwin seemed to really, really, really enjoy what he was doing, and it was fun to watch his show. He seemed like a very good person, a family man who cared deeply for the animals, particularly the frightening and not-so-beloved ones. Rest in peace, Steve.

Something tells me that not all of you are interested in my "back to school" project, so I will put it behind the cut:

OK, so the first Monday has come and gone. On to Tuesday, "Decrapulation Day". Today I plan on cleaning up a number of work projects which I've been avoiding all this time.

Well, I made myself a list of things to do today, and so far I've done one of them. I'm writing this as much as a kick in the ass as anything. Yesterday, I was doing so well. In fact, one thing I didn't manage to mention in my post about yesterday was that I washed the floor in my office, effectively taking care of one of the decrapulation projects that I was planning on doing.

One good bit of news is that this intermittent middle ear infection, which started happening back in December and has happened on and off several times (generally at the change of seasons...hmmmm....), most recently a couple of weeks ago, seems to have cleared up, and I've been able to clear all the crud out. I can now hear out of both ears, which is quite the boon when you consider that most of the meditation and subliminal recordings that I have depend largely on having two functioning ears.

Out of curiosity, does anyone use Skype? It's a VoIP tool that's free if you want to talk over the Internet via their client. Just curious.

OK, break's over.
