Japan - Autumn Leaves Geisha

It Just Sorta Hit Me

Talking to my mum, and it hit me that my father turns 77 this year. I mean, yes, I know how old he is, but at the same time, I'm not sure it always quite sinks in. She was telling me he fell again, though he insists he's just fine. So since he refuses to see a doctor, what's actually going on with him is unknown. Now, when he had cancer 15 years ago, he was given maybe six months to live since the cancer had spread so far, they said that there's no way they could have gotten it all, but here he is, still pretty much in denial he ever had cancer. He only quit working full time two years ago, and still works part time now, so at least he's active, which is good because otherwise he'd sit in a chair and watch TV all day. And when he's home he makes my mum and brother crazy. So all in all, a good thing.

This Has Potential

I was checking the weather on My Yahoo page, and saw you can now have it on your desk top. So I decided to DL the Yahoo Widget Engine, which in addition to letting you have the weather on your desktop, also has 1000s of other widgets. This one might come in handy: LiveJournal Friends Reader...

I'm going to try it out, and will report back.
