The memorial on Saturday was very well attended. The community came together to support each other and remember our friend. He was remembered, celebrated and honored. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on in all of us.

Rich is still in hospital. But is doing much better today. We’re waiting on the doc as I type this, but we are more hopeful that things are healing properly and our time here may be winding down.

Getting ready to do a massive change to the Bookup website, heading out of FrontPage and into WordPress. We’ve got the membership system running, and a forum integrated, just some code to be played with to finish that off so we can move the members into it.

Life is good, things are moving forward.

Rich got out of the hospital on Sunday, but by Tuesday afternoon we were back. The one day at home, a good friend died of a heart attack at the age of 46.  I don’t have words this week.

Why would you use horses to put an egg back together in the first place? Rich’s been put back together and we’re spending the week in hospital recovering.

Working with a new membership system and the old phpbb3 forum for Bookup this week. I’ve got it about half set up. Just the details now. Fingers crossed… again.

The market is going down, time to learn about puts instead of calls.

Brain a little scattered, not much sleep this week.

I spent this past weekend, Thursday through Monday, downtown at MarCon – Multiple Alternative Realities Convention. I had a great time hanging out with friends and seeing folks from out of town. Tom Smith’s concert was fun as always. He promised that if he puts out a DVD, his ASL interpreter will most certainly be featured. She is amazing and hilarious. The Zombie Walk was huge this year, but a few bad eggs ruined it for future walks – defacing property with fake blood. The con did well this year – attendance was up and the biggest problem of the weekend was caused by non-con people. It looks like the con will be moving weekends after next year, we will have to see how that rolls out. I ate a lot of dead cow this weekend, hamburgers and even a wonderful flat iron teriyaki steak, as well as other unhealthy odds and ends. I did have some really good grilled asparagus with that steak, too, and bits of salad with my sandwiches. It wasn’t a completely unhealthy weekend, just mostly.

Back on the wagon again and still doing quite well. I’m a little stiff today, but nothing serious. Had more grilled asparagus last night, too. Yum! Cart full of veggies bought today. 🙂 Picnics the next couple Sundays. Summer is arriving with a roar – tornado warning yesterday. A beautiful storm. Rich has surgery on Tuesday and then recovery, we still don’t know how long that’s going to take but they tell us it will be faster than the last time.

All is well, life is good. 🙂
