It's not even 10:00 p.m. here yet but it feels like midnight.
And it was a good day, all things considered. Most of us made it to church this morning. Our pastors will be leaving in two weeks for separate churches in San Jose. At least they're in the same city. I wonder which Sunday School their little boy will attend. He's a cutie - extremely bright and loving.
Finally got the girls to the big park around five this afternoon. (Had to wait for the Giants to finish losing and Barry to finally hit 715). Elcie and I hung out and let the two little ones do their thing while we had a long "facts of life" talk. She can come up with some interesting questions. You should have heard me trying to explain the X & Y chromosomes in language a 13 year old can understand. They'd been studying genes in school but she hadn't heard any of that.
It started by my saying that men who blamed their wives for not having baby boys were incorrect. I don't remember what prompted that. Our conversations have a way of veering off suddenly.
Then we went for Chinese food. All but Ray - he stayed home with the peace and quiet. Except for the girls eating grapes by spearing them with chopsticks, all went well. They remembered "please" and "thank you", and had a great time. Elcie even learned a little bit about the chopsticks by the time she was done. They're intended more for a bowl than a plate so I brought her a little chow mein in a bowl and she did much better.
Didn't care too much for the baby octopi though. Ewww, they said. Me too.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a small ad about "net neutrality" without explaining what it is. Here's a link to the New York Times today explaining it fairly well. Basically the www will no longer be free if ATT and others have their way. Those of us who now access for just the price of our connection (expensive already) will either have to pay for access or receive slower service (or possibly none at all). Two tiers of service. Not unlike cable t.v.
It has nothing to do with porn on the net and everything to do with greed. The porn sites would be the first to cough up the extra bucks but people like me might have to think twice.
Anyhow, not a lot more going on today. Tomorrow we plan to walk down to our Courthouse Square park and stop for a few minutes at the war memorial there. Maybe take a few flowers. I'll check the paper first. They might be doing something official there.
The girls need to know that Memorial Day is something more than an extra day off.
Talk to you tomorrow. Thanks for the comments and the help with the blogroll. Anvilcloud and whoever else said it should be at the end were right. I missed it on the ones I actually typed instead of copying and pasting.
Take care everyone.
