* Like Rox, I'm a toe-looker. And judger. If they're going to be on display, I expect them to be clean and ungnarled. Still it's best if you cover them, thanks. The season is definitely over in Canada. No, I said definitely.
* The only thing both republicans and democrats seem to be good at these days is disparaging one another.
* Maybe you've noticed that the blog looks a little different. The site was hanging up a lot and not loading properly, so I went ahead and "upgraded" to the moderner blogger and of course that wipes out all the stuff you previously added. One of the things that changed is the blog roll. I availed myself of a new blogger widget that captured my googlereader list from last year. So if you are not on the roll and want to be, it's only because last year you weren't, so just let me know. I haven't had the time to go through and make sure it's updated properly.
* Serge was discussing a website for a client. The site discussed would have a religious bent. When inquiring about the look they were after, he asked if they wanted it "goddy" looking. This caused confusion on the client's part, who heard, of course, gaudy.
* When a "central bank" pours money "into the market", where does that money go? They never say "lend money to the market", but that must be what they're doing right? Can someone point to a layman's explanation on the matter?
* I jinxed myself talking about the elevated mood yesterday. A bout of insomnia ensued last night.
* For a party that attracts those who say "No Government Hand-Outs," there are certainly a lot of hand-outs going down on their watch.
* Every week, we learn new things. The thing that stuck with me this week is that they have discovered that we learn to speak not only by hearing and mimicking, but also by the way the words "feel" in the mouth. This opens up a new avenue for speech therapy for the hearing impaired. Interesting stuff. It makes sense though, an S and a Z have the mouth in the same position. The Z needs your voice though and this causes your tongue to feel differently than making the simpler S.
