The only sure thing about luck is
that it will change.
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
I spent the day catching up. In the afternoon, I went to Three Hills for some groceries. Meijers came for supper.

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.
We visited and took a walk around town. If we walk the entire circumference of Swalwell, we cover exactly two kilometres. Ellen went to Red Deer to attend Marj Vetter's opening.
Sunday : Cloudy. 60 percent chance of flurries. High minus 8.
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.[misc/weakness.htm]
