Quick recap of the past week…Sacramento French Film Festival, business calculus, dog sick, bought today’s Woot (Neutron lawn mower), installed CICS TS 3.2 at work, ate at La Trattoria Bohemia with Kristin and the gift certificate she “won” at the Sac SPCA Doggy Dash in May, made reservations for our 20th wedding anniversary at Cafe Fiore in Tahoe, unsuccessfully researched self-cloning techniques.
This week…business calculus, Bark at the Park at Raley Field on Sunday (useless link, though).
