Final Contribution Day

Friday, October 29th, 2004 · 2 Comments

Tonight marks the deadline for contributing directly to the Kerry campaign. Can you believe we’re a mere 4 days from election day? There’s still time to make a difference. So bust out your credit card and instead of buying a coffee or an extra drink at the bar tonight or seeing a movie this weekend, […]

First Frost

Thursday, October 28th, 2004 · 1 Comment

Winter inches closer here in Saratoga Springs. While walking the dogs this morning, I noticed that the fallen leaves in our neighborhood were covered with frost. The temperature has been hovering around 40 degrees all month long, and I’ve noticed sub-40 temperatures on more than one occasion. Of course, time really begins to fly this […]

Thursday, October 28th, 2004 · Comments Off on Vitamins

Take your vitamins. This week Jen and I started taking Centrum every day for the first time in a few years. We used to be fans, then we were off the vitamins for a while. No reason. Vitamins just fell off our radar. I must say that I really feel more energetic and alert this […]

Pigs Can Fly

Thursday, October 28th, 2004 · Comments Off on Pigs Can Fly

Today’s front page of the online version of the Boston Globe says it all: Last night, of course, the Red Sox swept the Cardinals in the World Series, ending the 86-year Curse of the Bambino. My next prediction: This isn’t going to be the only victory for a team from Boston this year. Our next […]

Red Sox Sweep?

Wednesday, October 27th, 2004 · 1 Comment

How awesome is it to watch the Red Sox dominating the World Series? They’re clearly in control of the game, getting the best of the Cardinals at every turn. Pedro Martinez tore it up in last night’s Game 3, which put the Sox ahead 3 games to nil — just a single game away from […]

Lost Explosives

Tuesday, October 26th, 2004 · 4 Comments

I’m eager to hear how Bush plans to rationalize this one. How the hell do you lose track of 300+ tons of explosives? I don’t own a gun, but I’d imagine that if I did, I’d be damn sure that I’d know where it was at any given moment. I can’t even imagine what 300+ […]

Monday, October 25th, 2004 · Comments Off on Rug

Owning a home and getting older do funny things to you. For the first time yesterday, Jen and I went on an Oriental rug mission. After quickly realizing that the advertised BJ’s (Costco) sale was just a tad out of our price range (do people really pay $25,000 for something they will walk and spill […]

Iran for Bush

Sunday, October 24th, 2004 · Comments Off on Iran for Bush

If a proud member of Bush’s own Axis of Evil endorses him, shouldn’t that be a wake-up call to anyone who thinks Bush is tough on terrorism? Bush receives endorsement from Iran: “The head of Iran’s security council said Tuesday that the re-election of President Bush was in Tehran’s best interests, despite the administration’s axis […]
