Farmer's Market closing
It's hard to realize that we only have a few more weeks in this year, as well as in the first decade of the 21st century. I remember like yesterday the panicky preparations for Y2K -- and now we are here, in the Pacific Northwest, my work life far behind me, and my new life unfolding a little at a time. Two more Christmas parties this coming Thursday and Friday, and me trying to keep the weight gain to a minimum. It certainly helps not to be able to get into my favorite pants. Talk about incentive!
I am almost completely at home with my new iPod Touch. I am now synched with home, the coffee shop, and (today) the bird store. The owner is a Mac aficionado and she was the one salivating over my new toy. We played bird songs, and now I'm wondering: can I get GPS downloaded onto my Touch? Or do you have to buy one with it. She was telling me about some apps that sound really fun, but I'm still a novice with this thing.
In a few minutes I'm heading out to pick up a girlfriend and go to see "Invictus." I see that Morgan Freeman has already been nominated for a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela. Hopefully I'll love it and tomorrow you will know more about it.
