Conservatory organ


Here’s one of the organs in the conservatory at Longwood Gardens. That’s a really big console. I would love to have heard that organ being played. Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken last year at Longwood Gardens, and part of my famous Garden and Machinery series.

Yeah, I know you can’t see the garden in this picture, but it was there. Trust me.

Pretty good weekend. LRN4’s feeling pretty well and her white cell count is back down to 0.5. The doc says there are just variations. If it had gone up again today, he might have been worried, but the chemo seems to have been working fine. We go back to Los Angeles a week from today to see where we stand. Until then, we relax and enjoy life.

LRN4 has had to cut back down to a single Nexavar pill a day. She had tried to up it to two (our doctor in LA wants her to be taking four a day!), but she had such pain in her feet that she just can’t do it. We’ll have to hope that a single daily pill does the trick. Quality of life issues took precedence this time. She cut down a few days ago and reports that her feet are feeling a lot better by this evening.

Happy Veteran’s Day, by the way. Especially to my numerous Loyal Readers who are also veterans.  Loyal Reader veterans I know of are: LRN20 and . . . umm . . . that’s about it. Sorry if I missed anybody, but many thanks to LRN20, who is actively serving even as we speak.

Does the Coast Guard Auxiliary count? If so, also many thanks to LRN3, who volunteers with those good folks.

Didn’t get much work done today. I love being retired. Wait! No! I’m not retired. I’m self-employed. Guess I was a lousy employee today. Tomorrow’s task – getting at least a few draft chapters done on the user’s manual for the medical app.

Had an interesting discussion last night at the in-laws’ house. Our non-loyal-reader friend Grace asked me if I am in business writing iOS apps. I responded in the affirmative. She said she was approached by a friend to find out whether she knew any developers and wondered if she could give them my name. I asked if they have any money. She responded in the affirmative. I gave her one of my business cards and invited her to invited the friend to contact me. We’ll see if it happens. It would be great to get a paying gig, wouldn’t it? I’m ready for that now. Although I might actually have to work hard. Shiver me timbers.

Not a lot else going on today, so I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this combination shocking food violence news and exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: breaking-and-entering, Chinese-food-eating bear!

See you tomorrow.

    The US Coast Guard Auxiliary fall in with the rest of the Coast Guard as both part of the military and the Department of Homeland Security. So I guess I technically qualify.
