  • Nothing below a high of 77 ºF is forecast for the next ten days.
  • I have developed a rude habit of letting a person ask about me and my family, answering the person, and never returning the inquiry.  I’m not sure exactly what made me aware of it, but now I am.  Friends who call me on my shit—and you know who you are—please help me with this.  Thank you.
  • I picked up a Home Run Inn-branded pizza at Publix this week.  Turns out this is a small chain of pizzerias in Chicago (but not “Chicago-style” pizza), and the frozen products use exactly the same recipes as what is served in the restaurants.  I tried the sausage and pepperoni ultra-thin crust.  It is indeed good, if not particularly spicy (though Mad Anthony took care of that).
  • I’ve been using my Palm TX as a music player, and it works fine, but it’s slow and doesn’t hold much.  (Funny how that happens to seven-year-old electronic devices.)  I just loaded my phone up with about half my library, and I’ll see how it goes.  (One early comment I have is that the Smart DJ feature isn’t very smart.)
  • Both boys are practicing daily for their piano recitals.  It’s a few more bits of music I’ll never, ever forget.
  • As a smart and beautiful friend of mine asks:  if you have $459,999.99 for a diamond, are you going to drop it at Costco?
  • Speaking of notable retailing, who remembers the DAK (as in Drew Alan Kaplan) catalog?  It lives!

  1. “if you have $459,999.99 for a diamond, are you going to drop it at Costco? ” – Well, why not?

    How’s yer mama ‘n ’em? 🙂

  2. I just don’t see someone in the market for a half-million-dollar diamond wanting it to come from the same place as a two-gallon tub of mayonnaise and a 60-lb. sack of kitty litter.

    And we’re all great, thanks! Hope you’uns to the southwest are too!
