    After all the New Year's rants, some anti-rant from me ;)

    Since Friday I could hardly move because of my back, which then only slowly got better, But today, I went running in the morning and it actually worked out without pain :)

    a beautiful day over here by the way, quite cold, still some ice on the puddles, but sunny!


    :D

    Wow, what a bummer. The trick is not being one of the 57.9 mil this year, huh?

    You are right: it is not quite so bad any more. Look what I happen to see this minute when I turn right and look out of the garden-side window of my study:

    You might only see leafless bushes, but do you also see what is best???
    THE SUN IS SHINING! Yay.

    And hey, Alex, I am happy to hear that hot, foamless baths have helped cure the strained back! Never again put big boxes up into the attic at Christmas!!! You hear me?

    well, put it this way, it puts ahole in re-incarnation coz there just arent enough people dying to go around the new borns!

    Unless this is why we end up with a lot of stupid people all being like split in two upon re-entry :p

    Multiple personality disorders are becoming less frequent. Coincidence?

    That is too many then, considering the dwindling resources of earth.

    I do not consider that the bright side ...
