Travel Special for 2006

TRAVELS, 2006 May-June 2006 June 3, NAIA Thinking about this trip makes me go, “Yes! Another vacation/journey to the great unknown/chance to drink unbelievable amounts of free Bailey’s!” Looking at the list on the left [with the names of people I have to give gifts to] makes me wonder if I brought enough shopping money.…

LAST SHOT FOR MAY 2006 May 31, 2006 Well, looks like we have one last day before June kicks in, so let’s get on with a few things. First, against my will (and only because I wanted to see trailers) I watched The Da Vinci Code. Crappy book, crappy movie. Can someone please send Dan…

THE BOOKS ARE HERE…AND OTHER THOUGHTS… February 20, 2006 It’s been nearly two weeks since I started taking all these strange medicines. They’re not really strange, to tell the truth: Augmentin with co-amoxiclav, which is an antibiotic meant to target Gram Negative bacterial species; Clindamycin, which is another antibiotic that runs after Gram Positives; Sinupret,…

THOUGHTS FOR JANUARY January 2006 Here’s something I keep on forgetting, shame on me! My cousin/quasi-uncle Goby Labrador has published a new book on the history of satellites, which you can buy from him (or through me, so if you’re interested, drop me an email).
