The button


Here’s The Button. The Button that launched the first person into space. Yuri Gagarin, that is. That’s a younger version of me about to push The Button. Great Art courtesy of some old camera, taken at the Baikonur museum on June 2, 2001 during the Astra 2C launch campaign, and part of my famous Machinery and Electronics series.

Yes, I now have a famous Electronics series, after the great outcry of a few days ago. Well, at least LRN16 thought I ought to do it. By the standards of this blog, that counts as an outcry.

Pretty good weekend. LRN4 has had a pretty bad-looking rash for a few days and she’s been running a fever. That makes us worry a bit about an infection, doesn’t it, Loyal Readers? Well, we discussed it with our doctor today and . . . she has an infection! Not a good thing, but the doc doesn’t seem all that concerned about it, so we’re deciding not to worry too much about it either. She got a whole lot of new antibiotics and they sent us on our way. We’re hopeful. But infections are not a good thing for her. Not at all. Could land us back in the hospital if she doesn’t start getting better real quick.

Today’s good news: LRN4’s white cell count is still down at 0.2 and her red cells and platelets are fine. So we’re doing okay.

Nothing else new. I’ve been spending my few working hours on the app for my brother and the medical app. Making a bit of progress. Not fast enough, though. We’ll get there. Did I mention I’ve paid the exorbitant price for a booth at the big conference in February? Well, I did. Now I need to get the software done, finish the documentation, develop promotional materials, get everything needed for a professional-appearing booth, get airline, car and hotel reservations, and do all the stuff I haven’t thought of yet. Sounds easy.

Great news! Another season of [amazon text=White Collar&asin=B00B58948U] has found its way onto Netflix. We’ve been watching it tonight. Well, LRN4 saw the first episode, anyway. Now she’s napping while I watch a few more. Enjoying it. Recommended.

And I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: itchy power-killing cow!

See you tomorow.

    I wouldn’t want my power out, but I don’t think it’s the cows’ fault. I love watching the new season of White Collar–even if I do fall asleep

    I just started watching White Collar just as the series was ending. I need to go back and watch from the beginning.
