Good morning, Happy Thursday. On a clear day if you look at the horizon you can see the weekend. Of course today isn’t a clear day, so you can’t really see the weekend.

Kind of overslept, so I ended up taking the yokel local bus downtown. I guess I could have taken Big Red down to the Park and Ride but that would be stupid as the local runs right past my apartment and arrives downtown at about the same time as the express.

Last night went out Center Square Pub for two drinks and subsequently spilled beer on my freshly dry cleaned suit and and overcoat. I scrubbed it with a wet cloth, splashed some aftershave on it and let it dry. Seems fine this morning.  Shit happens.

No real plans for the weekend but I might continue working on debugging the blog and finish implement the new photos code. Might go cross country skiing somewhere nearby too, but not too far out of town.

Good morning, Hump Day rolls around once again. A nice sunny morning, not so cold. Maybe there is hope after this long winter after all. I tell myself that March comes and goes really quickly.

Went grocery shopping last night, and it was great not having the crowds. I should be set now until Sunday.

Traffic is light heading downtown but that is to be expected at this hour. A session day, there sometimes is delays in the Empire State Plaza but not today. Must not be a major lobby day.

Good evening on this frigid evening. Traffic seems to really backed up downtown but the bus was on time to pick me up and go home, so I’m not complaining.

Winter is long but it must eventually come to an end. 90 days from now people will be in that great parking lot known as the Adirondack Northway, waiting to get away for the Memorial Day Weekend.

I am working on a revision of some of the code on the back end of my blog as relates to photos and maps which is why I haven’t posted much new maps lately. The changes are mostly done but there is still more to do. I’ve been working on it slowly but hopefully it will be done by camping season.

Today the markets were up somewhat and while it doesn’t matter that much, I’m glad my investments are growing and the recession is ending – offering all of us more opportunities.

All and all kinds of a dreary cold day but it’s only going to get better. Got to go grocery shopping this evening. It’s rare that I take Big Red out mid-week but last weekend didn’t really get shopping.

Well almost home. Have a great evening.
