10,084 – Thursday

BHK has a new(ish) laptop – Windows 2000 machine, runs well, and quick – now we just have to bring all of the data over to it. (about 6 dvds)

Went to the job fair in Rockville- lots of good potential there… unfortunately, Sean was unable to make it – he’s sick with a bad cold. I really hope that he’s feeling better now, though.

After the fair, we sniffed around town – visited La Madeline and World Market. We picked up a number of goodies for valentines day gifts, and a few bowls and treats for ourselves.

Two of my touchpoints, the use of torture and closing guantanamo are both listed as "in the works", more detail at the links.

far too many pictures from yesterday’s walkabout – lots of fun with Larry, Chris, and BHK on a lovely autumn hike. Did a bit of geocaching, too – dropped off the meagan and paris bugs.
