57 degrees. That’s what the little weather icon in my system tray says right now. That’s what it said most of yesterday, too, for that matter.

A Flickin’ Weekend

Raise your hand if you were thinking yesterday that I was completely out of control. Oh, wow, look at the bevy of wildly waving arms out there. That must be the 86 people who call me a Flickr contact… I was an uploading machine yesterday! I am pretty sure I heard a collective moan each […]
