First post from new house! After much trial and error, we finally have an internet connection. Wish I could say the same for the phone service, which seems to not want to work no matter what Verizon does for us. As for the post below, I wasn't really bemoaning my fall in stats, so much as I was saying that *I* am not happy with the content here of late. I guess I'm distracted. I discovered that the unknown plant in the front yard is a Japanese red maple. I was told that removing it would be umm...stupid, is what I think she said. Now if I could just figure out what the long, twisty tree-type plant is. It seems sort of phallic. Notice: Jose Contreras will now be referred to as Jose Effin Contreras. Reminds me more and more of Ed Whitson every time he pitches. Back to the power tool fun. Tonight's tool of choice is the electric sander. Love that vibration that lingers in your hand for hours after using it.
