Just finished Insanity. Now an all out assault on my remaining abdominal fat as I repeat month 2.
Apparently in Vegas now it's not unusual for the restaurants to have photographers come by the table, take your picture, and return when you're on dessert to sell it to you. We were having a lovely meal at Michael Mina at Bellagio and then it turned in to Six Flags. I can't begin to understand how these restaurants think this is even remotely close to being acceptable.
How did I ever live without a streaming music service?
I did. Exact same color and specs. It's an awesome computer from a size, design, and feel perspective. If you're expecting it to be fast I think you will be disappointed. I don't use mine for much more than browsing, email, and rarely Netflix. It really hangs with Outlook's mail client. Maybe that's just an Outlook problem, but I spend a lot of time waiting on it.

A supposedly developed nation should be embarassed by this outcome.
I'm traveling in Italy with my wife and parents. Yesterday my mom suffered a profound stroke. To say that the care that has been provided is inadequate would be an understatement. In fact, to even call it "care" is too charitable. The Italian physicians have failed to display even the least bit of professional courtesy. It's truly disgusting.
