December 10,2007 - I have finally recovered from whatever that illness was. I couldn't even move for the last two weeks! Apparently it was some form of pneumonia...
October 23, 2007 - Once again I am forced to take a day off of work to meet with the lawyer about estate matters...
October 12, 2007 - My last day of work before heading up-island for my cousin's wedding. It should be an interesting event, with most of the extended family reuniting for the first time since last month...
October 11, 2007 - I just finished reviewing the requested revisions for my doctoral thesis, and once I get back from my trip I should be able to finish the revisions very soon.
October 1, 2007 - For those keeping track, I have now been waiting for my roofing contractor to come out and fix my parent's roof for six months. Every week it is a different excuse from these guys, so I am giving up on them and trying someone else now. And these guys were recommended by a large national hardware store whose spokesman is a famous TV handyman.
September 19, 2007 - I have been asked to be a pall-bearer for my grandfather today, and will be away for most of the day. (and for those keeping track, that is my fourth funeral this year)

August 12, 2007 - I am always ahead of my time with technology. I saw an ad for Rogers wireless internet today, apparently using cell phone technology, and I couldn't help but mention that I suggested this idea at least five years ago. But I am just happy that it is finally a reality.
June 28, 2007 - I finally finished with the arrangements for my father's headstone. In all I spent over $7000 on his funeral and plot, and so I am hoping that very soon I can get that back from his estate...
June 19, 2007 - I just got back from visiting my grandfather in long-term care home. Tomorrow he will turn 90, and he is still singing and partying as well as ever!
