It is so good to be back online.  I felt as though I was missing my right hand. Murphy's law went into effect last Friday and mostly ended late yesterday. Name That Toon! will be delayed because I can't get my files off another laptop.  This too shall pass!

"He [Bush]  kind of blew it. He described his reading list to Brian Williams during the interview as 'epileptic.' I think he was trying for 'eclectic.' What happened? He was doing so well on the Ritalin." --Bill Maher

This is a photo I took of my front steps in Costa Rica, Tuesday, August 29, 2006. My friend and realtor, Ron, pressure washed a warm Costa Rican greeting for me.  It is good to be back in Costa and online. Yes, that's my shadow.
