Today I learned one of the former receptionists passed away recently. She was there a couple years, but eventually her alcohol addiction became a liability on the job. Word has it by the time she died she had more or less stopped eating, and was fueled primarily by alcohol. She was 51. Sunday I was thinking about things I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Last treadmill session (#33) was Monday, Nov. 7, where I clocked 3.3mi in exactly 46 minutes. Then I got dragged down by the stress of finalizing annual software changes, in combination with a storm of domestic disturbances. The software update project is done aside from some final testing and debugging, and I'm at-ease with that and looking forward to making some advances in re-engineering it as an intranet application. The domestic situation was good while it lasted - clean, quiet, economical and... (...more)
