oy...ok sorry, sorry, sorry. my cable modem bit it a week ago in that storm that had jesse and i stuck at meijers and caused all kinds of electronics to get fried in my apartment. and before that there were the weekly trips to chicago to northwestern for tests to figure out why i'm having 80 periods a month. ok, not really. and ok, too much information. and ok, it's just been two visits so far with two more, so far, to go. soooo...i'm lame! lame, lame, lame. but i'm back online again and it seems that i'm always in some kind of email/web catch up mode, huh?
