car woes

(Update 11:58 am) Graham's Madly Off In All Directions show will also be broadcast this afternoon on Richardson's Round Up at 3:30 pm.

No Urban Tapestry practice tonight. :-( Allison is busy with an after-school practice for the musical she and another teacher are working on, Joseph and the Technicoloured Dreamcoat (the show will be in May, I think).

Jeff and I have decided to go to Langdon Hall in Cambridge, ON tonight. His mom kindly gave us a night's stay at this hotel as a Christmas gift last year, and we've realized that we need to use the gift certificate before it expires! Tomorrow we'll be driving to Windsor to visit with Jeff's brother and his family.

We were supposed to go over to Parki's yesterday, but our car broke. :-(

Doug kindly came over last night to jumpstart our car, so we're hoping we're okay for our drive to Cambridge and Windsor this weekend. Jeff thinks the battery itself is having problems, not holding a charge for nearly as long as it should.

In case I don't Blather tomorrow, I hope you all have a great weekend!

9:36 am: Jeff just called and said that the battery went dead AGAIN this morning while he was on the way to a business meeting. Woohoo, fun! He got the battery replaced.


The upcoming Leonid Meteor Showers sound pretty cool. Jeff and I might drive out to the country on the weekend of Nov. 18th and get up really early to see them.

Want to know the chances of you being laid off before the end of 2002? Here's some help.

Trek memorabilia for sale in a live eBay auction on Dec. 12.


- Photo taken when Andrew and I went to Monterey Bay Aquarium. The two children were eating their lunch inside, and the little girl noticed the seagull drooling through the glass and held out a piece of bread.

- Sara's joined the Brownies, and it turns out that the handbook materials were illustrated by my sister Ruth! She did the artwork for the Girl Guides about five or six years ago, I think, it's ironic that Sara's now using them. :-)

Are you right-handed or left-handed? (YES for right-handed, NO for left-handed)
