Good food/friends day yesterday. Brunch in the morning at Grapefruit Moon with Parki, Bryan, Lindsay, Wendy and Jeff. Bbq at Andy's and Christine's in the afternoon. Evening drinks and snacks at the Liberty with Helen, Alec, Amanda, Sandra, Scott and Ron.

I had to miss Andy's and Christine's bbq last year because of the Inkspot deal negotiations. Had a wonderful time this year, seeing old friends, feasting on barbecued salmon and swordfish steaks, playing with the kids out in the backyard (see photo at top of page). I'll be posting some photos over the next while. You can also check out this photo gallery, which Reid was kind enough to host.

I recently began experimenting with a program called iView, which will make it much easier for me to keep track of all my digital photos. It also enables me to easily create online photo galleries like the one linked above; I plan to make use of this for future con pics. :-)

Dead tired today. I'd like to see the Gay Pride Parade on Yonge Street, but suspect I'll end up napping this afternoon instead.

Today's Blatherpic:

- Elspeth, Justine, and Jennifer at the bbq.

- Andy, cheerful bbq host.

Feel free to suggest a daily poll question.

Today's Poll:

Have you been COMPLETELY honest in every single Blatherings poll question you've answered so far?
