Wow it's howling out there. From dodging puddles to skating home on shear ice today. AJ and Jess left for Mexico about an hour ago. Yeah I know, Mexico scares the *%#¥ out of me too but Curtis' parents are on the same beach so it should be safe. Sal's parents just got back from Hawaii and had a great time. She's has always wanted to go so we have started the five-o fund and are saving towards a trip to the big island.
I finished another e-book in just 3 days, having my phone with me everywhere gives so much time to read and it really is not hard on the eyes. I can set the font size so that I don't even need my glasses. Besides can you carry around War and Peace, Tarzan, Call of the Wild, The Invisible Man and a few books from the library along with 50 albums, all your contacts, calendar, alarm clock, camera, barcode scanner, gps and the Internet in your coat pocket? And only about half of the storage is currently being used. Oh yeah it can make phone calls too.
Back to Northwood playoffs Saturday and Sunday. I just noticed I've been typing and browsing for an hour and my hands are good!

But I can say my hands feel much better, stronger and the tingling is all but gone all day. I had to laugh when the salesgirl at shopper's said I might have trouble falling asleep until I got used to the wrist supports.

I finished the fourth book in a series about Genghis Khan today, after spilling coffee on it Sunday morning.I really get into historical fiction. If not for a premature heart attack, the Mongols would have taken Italy, France and who knows where else.They had just finished with Hungary and Poland when they stopped and went home because the ruling khan died of heart failure and all of the princes in line for the title were 5000 miles east in Europe. They had taken on every army including Templar knights and nothing had stopped them. Very interesting reading, even though the author adds some theory and leaves some facts out.
