Just turn off your brain and enjoy the pretty pictures...

From the numbnuts that brought you Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, two of the most egregiously stupid movies every made. To not be insulted by the plot requires the viewer to have an IQ inversely proportional to the special effects budget. That said, the special effects are generally very cool. I'm just hoping there are no cgi wolves in this one.

I hope Auntie Em's ok...

A funnel cloud was spotted in adjacent Upper St. Clair, but the first wave of storms that passed through the Pittsburgh area last night stayed north of the old homestead in South Park. I followed this mass of whirling clouds on my way to band rehearsal at Windover Hills United Methodist Church, on top of Sunny Slopes. The sky to the north was solid black; so dark, in fact, I couldn't take a picture. The church's location might someday offer a spectacular view of the Apocalypse, but only if it approaches from the south.

Things you really don't want to see, #427

Obviously my financial institution, First National Bank, didn't use any of the $100 million "investment" from the U.S. Treasury to beef up their Internet infrastructure.

Sound medical advice

Nobody writes 'em like Harry Nilsson did. (June 15, 1941-January 15, 1994).

(It helps if you remember and appreciate Ernie Kovacs.)

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
