I just dumped my missive when the back up computer decided to do its own thing. My normal laptop has stuck keys. This is the result of the incompatibility of it's keyboard and a quarter glass of beer.
Most of this week involved the overcoming of the overwhelming task of planning and coordinating the Thanksgiving day meal. In a vain attempt to herd the folk around here into some semblance of order, I posted a sign up sheet. That way, we wouldn't have too much of one thing. That list was minimally effective as most people decided that they alone were the sole source of food for 20 people. The result was that we had way too much of everything and way too few of consumers. Any system works only as far as everyone believes it works. The mavericks who have a better idea always destroy the carefully thought through concept (monsters from the id, if you are familiar with "Forbidden Planet").
Pleas forgive my style of writing. I see advertisements for programs correcting grammar in writing so that everyone can write clearly and concisely............and the same. I write to be convoluted and obtuse. I attempt unsuccessfully a stream of consciousness ramble that requires effort to write and read. Hmmmmmm, maybe that's why I only have two followers.
