A Little Bit of That

Various quick items for today.

  1. I saw Serenity over the weekend.  I thought the movie was very well done.  I will say that the story wasn’t what I was expecting from the commercials that I saw, but it was very good.  I effectively wrapped up all of the story lines from Firefly but seemed like it would have been completely understandable to anyone who hadn’t seen the series.  After it is out a little while I will post more on the story line.  

  1. First thoughts on the President’s second Supreme Court nomination.  I really have no opposition to her at this point and by the same toke I really don’t know anything about her.  My one concern is that with NO judicial record I believe it is hard to form an accurate opinion on her.  Hopefully as the process moves along more about her, other than her resume, will be revealed.  I did think it a bit odd that she has been ‘his lawyer’ for an extended period of his life.  The term that is being thrown around is ‘cronyism’ which at least on the surface it appears to be.

  1. Family Update:  Wife finally will be going back to work.  She had 2 interviews last week, and was offered both jobs.  Job 1 as a nursing home position, and job 2 was a private duty nursing position.  She accepted job 2 which paid a little more and had a bit less stress associated with it.  She will, hopefully, begin working for the new company on Monday October 10.

  1. Family Update 2:  For anyone who was following the ‘family saga’ from Wife’s family here is the latest.  Her Grandfather will not, at least immediately, be going in to the full nursing facility.  Grandmother has even objected to paying for him to receive help 3 or 4 hours a day from an aide. (The fee for the aide was a very respectable $10.00 per hour.  This was felt by all but Grandmother to be a very reasonable sum.)  Father-in-law now believes, despite the ‘slapping’ incident that started this spate of posts, Grandmother is just acting like an elderly person.  Aunt Zee was supposed to come in for a meeting but was unable to do to ‘personal reasons.’ She participated in the exciting meeting with the Retirement Community by phone.

  1. Going in to the last week of the baseball season it looked like the Indians would make the play-offs.  Unfortunately they slumped going in to the last week of the season and lost 5 of 6 to end the season.  This disappointing season ending has left me a little ‘out-of-sorts.’

  1. We will be taking the next 2 days away from the posting as Rosh Hashanah begins at sun down tonight.  With this being the case we hope you will under stand the lack of any new posts.

La’shanna Tova  May your coming year be blessed with sweetness.  May you be sealed in the book of life for another year.
