The D.R.


We're back from the Dominican Republic. Our hotel was not as good as advertised. Cutes got sick. It rained a bit. But it was still a vacation. It makes the poor driving habits of Ontarians seem like good driving habits. The rum was good, the cigars were sweet, the food was average the service wasn't good, the place wasn't clean. However, it photographs amazingly well. Everyone seemed to like this picture so i've added it to the post.


ps We've been back for less than 48 hrs and we've already been for sushi!

Snow Day!


So, we've really been dumped on today. Well, overnight actually. I had every intention of shovelling the driveway and going to work. Then something occurred to me. Even if i got all the snow shovelled i wouldn't be able to go anywhere, the street hadn't been plowed. The street remained unplowed until late this afternoon. One of my co-workers who lives nearby was in a similar predicament. (He called to update me). So we decided to find out what the boss was up to. He was already at work! At least an hour before i start. Just by happenstance his route was driveable. Driveable enough to get there i guess. Ultimatley production was cancalled and we were all to stay home, the boss stayed at the lab to answer the phone. The phone which rang seldomly. Anyway, here's a photo of my neighbour before he backed into the snow and stalled out.

too many passwords

it took me several tries to get here. i think i need to simplify my passwords. i should probably change them anyway. i just downloaded quicktime yesterday. (way to go me) it's all good at myspace now however. just a thought really. wasn't last Thursday "computer security day"?
ha ha ha ;-)
kind of scary when you realize what the top 3 passwords are:

password
1234
pet/child name

21 minutes into virus scan and counting.....
