I swung by my old house late tonight to pick up some archived papers and move there to the new house. I haven't been back in a while, and ugh. There is this really wierd smell there, like, the smell an empty house, if you get what I mean. I suspect it might be from all the excess dust generated by moving so much stuff and exposing dusty corners. I also suspect, though, that it's because I haven't been there a while. I recall a similar smell when I come back from long vacations. Amazing how the human brain works, isn't it?

I went to a rehearsal of the Futures of America, a vocal group, today, to see if I can help out with some sound equipment stuff. My friend Susan is in this group, that's how I got involved. I got to meet Mr. F, the director, is a really great guy. Unfortunately, I am unable to make any kind of regular commitment to the group, but I we talked all night about everything from the sound equipment and computers to living in the United States. But I'll help out when he needs me for special things, like when they will do a recording or such things. So this will be great.

Our old Dustbuster is getting old and dirty and the Ni-Cad batteries are wearing out. Too bad one can't change them without opening it up and actually soldering on new batteries, and the thing was too old and nasty to bother with. So I went to Home Depot and bought a new one. The only one available was the Versapack Dustbuster. It cost $39.95. The thing is the typical hand held vaccuum, except it has removable batteries, so if those NiCads ever wear it, just replace new ones! Versapack rocks.
I know why I'm tired all time.
The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work.
There are 85 million in school, which leave 48 million to do the work.
Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government. This leaves 19 million to do the work.
Four million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 15 million to do the work.
Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Government and that leaves 200,000 to do the work.
There are 188,000 in hospitals, so that leaves 12,000 to do the work.
Now, there are 11,998 people in Prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.
And you're sitting there reading this. No wonder I'm tired, I'm the only one working.

Well, now I'm catching on on this Ask Jeeves mood. I got my official Ask Jeeves T-Shirt and drinking cup today. This is getting really exciting.
