A sad end.

I jsut saw on CBS 2 Chicago that the Berghoff resturaunt in chicago is closing its doors. February 28th is the last day they will be open. This is a terrible shame, they have bene open for over one hundred years. I have eaten there a number of times and will be very sad to see it gone. Anyone want to get together for a group outing to Chicago for one last dinner at Berghoff?

The pneumonia is gone.

The pneumonia is gone. I still get 5 more days of antibiodics for my sinuses though. Oh and my BP is back to normal too.

Do What???

Ok, I think I may have to cancel my Capital One card on a matter of principal. I was watching TV last night and thier commercial came on. At the end of this commercial they ran a card that said, “There are only 364 shopping days left until Christmas.” It was irritating enough that the past few weeks has had them warning of the impending calamity lest someoen forget to show thier love via debt. Now, post Christmas they are still at it, and still using Christmas as an excuse. When did love become synonymous with paralyizing debt? When did showing you care about someone require you to use a credit card? This society is so hung up on materialism that it’s hard to imagine much of a future. I’m jsut as guilty, I over spend for the holidays all the time. Although I am proud to say I didn’t put any gifts on my credit card at all.
