Completely at Random

Just some random notes:

I've realized that the calendar link is not working and will try to fix it soon or go back to posting coming events. For now you'll have to link to my web page and use the calendar link there.

If you noticed Bilbo on the recent reader's section, you'll want to note that I've added his blog to the "Blogs I Frequent" section as well. I think that I'd like this guy. I tend to enjoy and agree with much of what he posts. Although he is a few years older and at a different life stage, it would seem that we have grown up with the same ideals and similar beliefs about right, wrong, social etiquette, work ethics, common sense and the like. Give him a read from time to time and let me know what you think.

Also you are invite to sign in on the recent readers. If you blog, I'd enjoy dropping by.

Aaron is off to college in just a couple of days! It will be a different environment around here for sure. Keep him in your prayers!

How about those Cardinals? Just when you want to write them off for the season, they go and give you a glimmer of hope. Kind of the opposite of what Cub fans experience every year! Not to worry Cub fans, at least you have hope at some time during the season. Imagine what it would be like to be a Royals fan.

Working on a couple of new magic effects. I used Daryl's "3fly 3" for the first time the other night. Got some interesting reactions/looks too. I'll keep working on it. Also working on the effect "Torn," a torn and restored card effect.

We're still trying to work out a deal on the house/hospital purchase (but that's a whole 'nother blog).

Retirement eligible in 4 yrs, 4 mos, 23 days!

Good Morning, John, and thanks for the kind words. I'd like to think there are more of us who share the values and ideas I've grown to appreciate over the years. Best wishes...and forget the Cards and the Cubs - the Pittsburgh Pirates are the team!

Hi John!
My youngest is off to college next week. Gosh I'll miss her.
I am jealous that you are counting down to retirement. . . . I think I'll have to work at Wal-Mart just to pay my property taxes until I'm 80.
Enjoy your blog.
Ciao
