02:30 pm - Update on Scotia the Dark Tortie cat....

The vet called my wife...Scotia does NOT have stones again, but has a urinary tract infection.

She has an antibiotic, and another med (not sure what), and we have to keep an eye on her.

It's too bad no one was around to videotape me as I tried to get her in the carrier yesterday - took me 20 minutes of gentle persuasion/going after her....

It's sunny here in southeast Michigan....and c-o-l-d!

Still no grandson unit...looks like it might be November 30th, as they predicted.

I have to take Scotia the cat to the vet...urinary tract troubles again...

08:33 am - JFK

WDET (the Detroit public radio station) has been broadcasting stories all week regarding John F. Kennedy and connections to Detroit/Michigan.

Yesterday or the day before, they talked about the first mention of a service corps (what would become the Peace Corps) occurring during a campaign stop in 1960 at 2 AM in Ann Arbor, MI.

Today, they interviewed the son of a Secret Service agent who was in Dallas on 11/22/63. The son was a senior in HS at the time.

After everything was all over, he and his mother picked his dad up from the White House, and his dad immediately typed up a report of the day's events at their home.

His dad let him read it. He was the first person to read the Secret Service's initial report on the day's events.

The son lives in East Lansing, MI.

09:36 am - I'm thinking about getting an Apple as my next computer...

I hate Windows 8.

And at work, every time Microsoft sends out an update for Internet Explorer, our parts catalog software needs to be tweaked.

Apples are pricey, but seem to have fewer issues like that.

10:54 am - A post a day...

Boy, do I need to update that profile picture. That was my look about 10+ years ago.

I am challenging myself to make one post here every day for 7 straight days. Some may be inane, but I don't care.
