Oreo loves his Thursday hanging out with me. Today is his first day to be able to stay at home in two weeks so he is really exhausted. His “day off” last week involved traveling to Rochester and back which was more restful than going to daycare but not nearly the same as just staying in his bed all day like he normally does.

Today is a beautiful day for staying in too. The sun is out and the air is warm. So warm, in fact, that we have one of our windows open to enjoy the fresh air and the apartment is a bit on the warm side! New Jersey is awesome.

Dominica found a great article about a Brazilian businessman traveling in Germany who caught a burglar in his home in Sao Paolo from his web cam and managed to get the police to catch him there red handed.

Today I finally ran a log analyzer on the SGL logs for the first time in a year or two. I am not sure how long it has been but definitely the first time since we moved to the current server and WordPress. I was surprised to discover that we are no longer getting the one hundred hits a day like we were the last time that I checked the statistics. We are now getting over one thousand hits a day! That is roughly a hit every one and a half minutes all day long, every day. Whoo-hoo.

I worked from home until just after noon. Then I drove into Warren for a lunch meeting that lasted for almost two hours. Dominica got out of work just a little after that and went down to the Menlo Park Mall near Edison and did some Christmas shopping while I was at the meeting. Then I joined her and we did some more shopping.

We ran her car over to the BMW auto body shop near Menlo Park and got an appraisal for the bumper damager. We are hoping to be able to get that taken care of very soon now that we finally have the paperwork ready to submit for it.

After checking on the car we came home and spent the evening hanging out with Oreo and watching movies. We watched Ladies in Lavender with Judy Dench and Maggie Smith. That was better than I had guessed that it would be although it was nothing special. Then we watched The Notebook which Dominica has been wanting to see for a while. I wasn’t thinking that I was going to like it but I ended up really enjoying although it is a very sad film. Definitely not a movie to be watched lightly.

I starting a long download of SUSE 10.2 32bit. I am hoping to be able to install it tomorrow on one of the servers heading for Scranton. I am happy that the latest version came out just in time to get it installed before the servers have to go.
