    A picture of Ron, my UPS man, would have been a better shot. The packages laying on my front stoop will have to do. What's in them you ask?

    Well it is Friday, and I am scratching my head once again asking myself what in the heck happened to the week of August 4th 2008? Since I did such a lousy job of documenting my movement through out the week I decided to refer to my infamous black book. Ask anyone that knows me and they will tell you I never leave home without it. I've been known to carry it along with me to the restroom just in case I need to write something down. My brain never stops so if I don't document passing thoughts and ideas they are lost forever, or at least until I think of them again...which could be years later.

    As not to bore you with the insignificant details, I will offer up the highlights of this past week.
