:Good Karma…by the Dalai LamaPosted: October 16, 2008
This morning I tried to set up blog entries, one each morning for the next several days. I thought I’d seen this capability somewhere in all the admin stuff. Alas. Alack. I’m sure it’s there, but my bag needs to be packed and the dogs need breakfast. Rick and I are taking a short trip in celebration of our 31st anniversary. It feels a little weird, given the current state of the economy. But, the trip was bought and paid for weeks ago with the exception of meals. Julie suggested the $1.00 value meal at Mickey Dee’s. There is a restaurant featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives…
So here’s the entry that would have automatically posted tomorrow….if only I could have figured out how!
