Of wars and detours

Wow, over two weeks this time. I’m either really lazy, or I do have a life. I’m sure it’s a little of both. Well, last time I posted, I wrote about the ongoing Iraqi war. Well, we took Baghdad last week, to smiling waving inhabitants that worked hard to pull down and destroy a statue of Saddam Hussein. It was pretty amazing. It was a pretty stark contrast to what the anti-war protesters would have you believe. Now don’t get me wrong, I know that not everyone in Iraq loves what’s going on there, but there is sure a lot of Iraqi people that seem to be happy. Go Figure.

Well, ‘Operation New Man’ has kinda taken a little detour on the exercise front. Hell I’ve barely had time to post here, much less go to the gym. I think I’ll be cancelling my membership at the end of the month because $64 a month is just too much to pay to not go. Now that summer’s coming (it’s in the high 80’s today) I can get my exercise by cutting the lawn and creating a play area in the yard for Kali. 🙂 Oh well.

Another thing on the health front is changing away from Lopid to Niaspan for my tri-glyceride reducing drug of choice. The Lopid was leveling out, and we needed to get more aggressive, so Niapan it is. Also started Singulair for my asthma. Trying it out as a preventative to see if it helps with my breathing over the long term. One of the two has the side-effect of jitteryness and heat flashes. Great, the fat guy needs to sweat and shake a lot. Oh well, I’ll be around longer for my kids (and hyper about it.)

On the software front, been working with Contribute from Macromedia a lot. Cool software. It’s really going to help me out in the web site development department at work. I love Macromedia. Almost as much as I love Lotus Notes. I may have to do Link pages to both on the site just so everyone else can join in the fun!
