a restaurant just over the border in Lynchburg,
Miss Mary Bobo's.
It used to be a boarding house. Reservations must be
made and visitors are seated in one of the many fine
rooms to eat a real, home-cooked southern meal. My
took me here last month. It was so wonderful that I'm
my family to try it.

Thanks to a posting today
at Digg.com, I got a free 32 mb thumb drive from IBM.
Well, at least I ordered it. In the comments, someone
said businesses were always giving these away at

I want them all, but after
listening to Leo's KFI radio show yesterday (well,
recorded yesterday and listened to on my iPod today),
Leo now loves Netscape version 8.02. He says the new
version is much better and it has a button so you can

actual color. The mind wants to pick the color it says
it is, but the gamer has to think past that to pick the

We've seen all of the
Batman Begins was the best of them all. The
actors were the best. Michael Caine made a PERFECT

I am so proud. My daughter took a picture of her cat, Rocky, who was accepted as today's entry in The Infinite Cat Project. Congrats, Jenny!
Thanks to Jennifer C. who is awaiting the results of her DNA sample, comes this link to a fascinating study from National Geographic, "The Genographic Project."
This sounds so cool and unlike many family DNA genealogy projects, women can participate in this. A person sends off for the kit, then swabs the inside of their mouth, sends it in, gets an analysis and finds out where their ancestors came from way back in time -- all of it anonymous. I am signing up right now.
