Day (X-7): Taking Care of Penny
I’m picking up Penny today from her second round at the trainer.  The first one was a two-week visit and this one was just about a week.  The trainer has been wonderful so far, but Penny is being pretty stubborn about cooperating and changing her …

Day (X-6): In a Giving Mood

Day (X-1): G5 Goodness
So I decided to start off my “X Days of Christmas” with a small wish:  just a simple Apple G5.  Of course, I couldn’t go standard, so I’d have to spice mine up a bit starting with, say, dual 20” Cinema Displays.  Yeah, I think …

The ‘X’ Days of Christmas
Man, it’s been really quiet around here the last couple of weeks—I don’t recall why there weren’t more posts last week, but I know this week it was at least partly because I was sick for a couple of days.  Plus too many video games …
