Morning!! :D
As I sit and type... the now begins.
When I grabbed the paper it was killer cold... but no snow... so I figured... ok, a cold day always follows a mild day... that way all the auto-body shops stay in business and homeowners get to bust their hands smashing ice... you know... the joys of living in the frozen north.  But no.  Not good 'nuf. Now it has to snow big fat thick snow flakes. The air will become a bit warmer but that ice layer on the ground will just be hiding under the snow.
Translation: bad day for driving...  (but geez... has it every started to snow... wow.)

We had another (gasp) turkey dinner at my brothers house last night. It was nice... and we had some good talk about some recent books on the subject of Oil, and it's finite supply and that impact of that supply running out in 20 years on our way of life.  It's kind of funny to think about how adamantly some people are that the war in Iraq was, is, about anything besides Oil.

Oh and I can't figure out why my Adobe Premiere Pro will not import the native AVI formats that come out of my little pentax digi cam.  I have to convert them to wma files (or another format) before Premiere will recognize them... bummer.

Tomorrow, while a stat holiday, is the first day back to school for the boys. The geek store I want to buy parts at is supposed to be open tomorrow... so that is a lovely recipe for me to finally get my new toys and sort out my computer.  Cross your fingers that they actually have stock in the bits I want!!!

Okidoki... I have a few projects to clear up before groceries... so see ya. :)
and have a great sunday. :)

Oh and...: For all your sound file editing needs... why go crazy hacking soundforge when you can get wavepad for free?
[ :: check this out ::] A totally free software package that does exactly what I wanted a sound editor to do... let me chop up files and save 'em.
