It lives

Perhaps I will try again to post today. I've finally completed the changes to the template to make it readable and have also reinsituted links. It's not that I'm slow, I just work on an incredibly slow timescale. So what's been going on?

The last 2 months have been 2 of the busiest that I will have this entire year (that is, until next April and then next July). This past month I was on Child Neurology. That is a lot of disabled little children. Great fun. I am now moving on to a cush elective month on Neuroradiology. Should be a lot of half days. And golf. There is now limited time before the grass goes away and there's no more golf until spring. Enough of work.

Football season has obviously started. Sure, Auburn lost the first game, but played with what appeared to be the intention of losing it. I'm not sure what part of the master plan that that fulfills. The running game has really come around since then (sure, against teams the best of which was the I-AA opponent WKU). Tonight's game against South Carolina will be very telling. I would also like to point out on a random note that if Vanderbilt beats MTSU tonight and a miserably awful Kentucky team later, they will be bowl eligible. Whew! Also, this is not meant as a direct attack, but merely an observation. The TV camera panning around LSU's stadium Monday night at the end of the game showing the complete stun on those fans' faces was some of the best TV I've seen in a while. You just can't script that kind of dejection.

Speaking of TV, there are some good shows out this year. We are now having weekly Lost gatherings which can only be hosted by people with TVs >27" and with DVR for instant replay and slow motion. The numbers were on that vial of medicine he took in the first episode. And the logo on the shark's tail is slightly different from the one all over the inside of the hatch in case no one noticed. Rome is absolutely beautiful to watch. I'm already a sucker for anything involving Roman history and the period surrounding the change from republic to autocracy is one of the most interesting. There are others as well, but those top the list by far. We're still catching up on the 1st season of Deadwood (see above comment about different timetable) though we've already seen the entire second season.

What else? We got to spend some quality time at the Gorge a few weeks ago. Beautiful place loaded with good trails at all skill levels. And no fences. Your last warning is often a sign at the beginning of a trail which says dangerous cliffs and illustrated by a stick figure halfway down a precipice with lines for air streamers around him indicating downward motion. Love it. If I have done this properly then there will be a picture of Half Moon Rock below, one of dozens if not hundreds of interesting formations (large and small) in the gorge..

I know that I post this every October and every April, but the Keeneland fall racing meet is beginning on Friday. It's just fun, OK.

Maybe I'll post more later if this doesn't fail and irritate me.

There was a logo on the shark's tale? Whoa!

I am so loving that show. Rome has been a lot of fun for us too. I find myself wondering if Octavian's mother really was such a degenerate, since Augustus was kinda the original family values guy.
