Labor Day

Ah, the day of organized labor, and as a member of organized labor I enjoy the day off. Sorry for the lack of updates, my computer has been having some indigestion, but I think it is better now. After the AFL-CIO day of rest school will begin, so until then I will give you a flash back to the month of August.

I have traveled back and forth to Chicago, and up to the great frozen north of Kanada for KlezKanada. Luckily this time of year it isn't always cold. The kamp itself was great, but I was a little disappointed that they changed the chulent recipe. It no longer had egg shells in every-bite, not that I would wish it on anybody.

I now have three DVD's. "Fiddler on the Roof," "When Harry Met Sally," and "Mr. Saturday Night." Now if only watching all these love stories would help my own love life.

Power Outage

I assume that you have heard of the power outage that struck the east cost of North America on Thursday July 14th. It took place in the middle of the 5th inning of the cubs game against Houston. (they were up 4 to nothing at the time, and went on to win (Holy Cow) 7 to 1.) And just 23 hours or so later the power came back. You never now how much you miss power until you don't have it. Other than that as I write this the cubs are winning.

I am headed next week up to klezkanada so I don't know if their will be a post before then or not.
