Meeting with mom was interesting. We discussed bro and the new project she has with Wilton. Apparently, in her will, if she and Wilton go together, I am to be executor of the estate. That’s a lot of responsibility… bro’s share will go into a trust… he can use it for education, rehab or appropriate health expenses, but never will a dollar touch his hands, for fear that he’ll spend badly.
M&W’s company will be doing some work up in Sterling, VA (about 15 minutes from Dulles airport, or 40 min from DC) during the months of August through October, so I have a free crash spot should I want to visit points north during that time. Sally and Bill are up there, too… I can’t believe that she’s 61, and he’s 50, now. Have twenty-five years really passed that swiftly? I still remember Sally and Mom working at the salon, and my going to see Star Wars in the same plaza. Now, their kids are in the late 20s, too. I’d love to visit the old house, hit the smithsonian Air & Space museum, and visit some LJ-type folk.
I am officially one year cable-tv free. (though I cheat and snag a couple of shows via bittorrent.) Take that, comcast!
Moment of Lyric – mp3
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem;
dissolvit ut glaciem.
rota tu volubilis,
mihi quoque niteris;
nunc per ludum
fero tui sceleris.
mihi nunc contraria;
semper in angaria.
hac in hora
cordae pulsum tangite!
quod per sortem
mecum omnes plangite!
noaa predicts very active 2006 north atlantic hurricane season
The outlook calls for a very active 2006 season, with 13-16 named storms, 8-10 hurricanes, and 4-6 major hurricanes. This prediction indicates a continuation of above-normal activity that began in 1995. However, they do not currently expect a repeat of last year’s record season.

“In 1969 the US Senate had a hearing on funding the newly developed Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The proposed endowment was $20 million, but President Nixon wanted it cut in half because of the spending going on in the Vietnam War. This is an video clip of the exchange between Mr. Rogers and Senator Pastore, head of the hearing. Senator Pastore starts out very abrasive and by the time Mr. Rogers is done talking, Senator Pastore’s inner child has heard Mr. Rogers and agreed with him. Enjoy.”
