Random Notes

September 20, 2008
  • Comcast came back overnight.  The Internet and phone work again.
  • A very nice man who speaks as much English as I do Spanish — slightly more than I realized, that is — is coming today to fix the fences.
  • I am very tired and stressed.
  • No bread on shelves.  The bank is closed.  They worry about financial crisis.  We have a preview.
  • But at least our house is intact and we have power.  We are very lucky.
  • I have fallen three days behind on reading the newspaper.
