Today's events in 2003  2002  2001  2000

When it is not necessary to make a decision, it is necessary not to make a decision -- Lord Falkland

Jon, Ellen & I drove Katrina to preschool, then headed north on 24 to Boston.  We planned to go to the Museum of Fine Art.  Ellen wanted to see the Art Deco exhibit there.  We spent some time driving around Boston, and finally found the museum.   Art Deco, for the most part leaves me cold, but I did enjoy the Monets, Gaugins, and Van Goghs, etc.  I have never really cared for Picasso, and the samples in Boston, weren't great, IMO anyhow.

We left at three, and went to the airport for our 6 PM flight.  By midnight, we were home and in our own beds, almost a continent away from where we slept last might

He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever -- Chinese Proverb

Jean & Chris came for the weekend.  Chris & I played with Knoppix, then got a tree in Three Hills.  We set it up and decorated it after supper.

I had some problems burning the Knoppix disks from the ISOs, but finally got it figured out.  It also turns out that this notebook, Chris' notebook and one of my desktops has a winmodem and Knoppix does not install winmodems.  Apparently, there is some Linux support, though, but I have to figure out how to get the files and install them, unless they are on the Knoppix disk and I just have not figured how to find them.  I also found that Knoppix will not completely boot on my old PII 166.  Maybe that is due to the extra drives and partitioning?

Today : Periods of snow. Amount 2 cm. Temperature steady near zero. / Tonight : Periods of snow. Amount 2 cm. Wind east 20 km/h. Low minus 13. / Normals for the period : Low minus 13. High minus 2.

A psychiatrist is a fellow who asks you a lot of expensive questions your wife asks for nothing -- Joey Adams

Wow!  Friday already, and I haven't made an entry all week.  Guess I'm a bit burned out.  I've had a low grade cold and mostly spent the time either hacking around on my computers, doing bookwork or tidying.  Tuesday, El & I went to Drum in the afternoon, then to Meijers for supper and a small party, seeing as it is Joe's birthday, and he was off to Holland on Thursday.

not so much by what you acquire but by what you give away,"
