Kadesma.

Thanks dear. I knew you could truly appreciate this. The two Little Rascals made the long distance call, all by themselves ! It is a long distance call from Zürich to Puglia ...

Thanks for sharing your views.

Kind regards and have a lovely summer,
Margi.

CWS,

I have a large vile of Pyramid of Giza, Egyptian Sand which I had taken in the 1980s from that trip ... It travels everywhere with me ... Amazing what we save, guard and collect ...

Thanks for sharing your interesting anecdote ...

Have wonderful summer,
Buonasera, Ciao. Margaux.

+2 Funny how "no" is one of the first words one learns, but as one gets older, one forgets how to say it...

i had a pretty good day today starting at 4:48am.

we had a major meltdown of a power supply that feeds the main audio video router out of my building. it died so badly that it took down the backup power supply, as well as the cpu that controls the damn thing. so, for 7 minutes we had nothing on air, nada; not eastern, central, mountain, or west coast was getting anything.
then there was lots of junk going out for an hour to the 4 u.s. time zones, as well as the cw network. this was a big time event that engineers only experience a few times in their lifetimes, and i was the senior guy on the job.

it took me a bit, but i was able to determine what happened, then physically swapped out this gigantic power supply bucket and get the system back up and running before the 6am shows. this thing was heavy. i ripped one of my favourite shirts in the process, but i'll just put in for it (several, lol) when i do my taxes as "unreimbursed employee expenses".

i got a lot of atta boys from my bosses for that one.

then i went home, ate a coupla cheese dogs, slept a little, then took my boy down to the field and had a pickup game of baseball with a bunch of 8 to 10 year olds; them vs. me.

i crushed the little brats and sent them home crying... just kidding. it was a lot of fun.

dw made dinner, then we watched a few cartoons and some olympics before i put my family to bed, and i headed back in to work.

and here i am.

hoping to not have to avert another disaster tonight. my cape and tights are in the wash.
