A new year, a new blogger -- coincidence?! Perhaps more posts? We'll see.

This site is thanks to Yahoo! Weekly picks: http://wherethehellismatt.com/

The "dancing" video is just awesome -- very moving and inspirational -- to me, anyway.
Seems like it's time for my annual visit to my blog.

And, no, I still haven't read the Da Vinci Code!

But I have read some wonderful math books, and blink, and the latest Harry Potter.

Until next year...

BTW, *still* haven't read the Da Vinci Code, but Abby liked it :-)
A year later! Wow, how time flies.

I'm married now. Sold the 17th floor apartments.
