It's Memorial Day weekend here in the States, which doesn't
mean much for me I suppose. Technically, we have Monday off
but realistically I'm going to geek out anyway.
Going up to Sacramento to with Andrew & Holly to join JR & Carol and pick cherries. And what will we do with the cherries? Ugh...eat too many of them more than likely. And make cherry wine.
I went to "Portable Potables," a local brew supply and vacuum cleaner shop today. The shop is owned by a charming-if-opinionated old grandmother named Elly. She had me laughing my butt off before I left. "I bought this business six months before it was legal," she says. (Apparently, home-brew beer was only legalized in California in the early 80's.) Elly at Portable Potables and Vacuum is another reason why I love Santa Cruz.
I'm going to meet up with rak while I'm in Cairo next month. That's pretty cool.

the goal look further away..."
Programming GTK in C is not good for the wrists.
There'll be no more pain
from broken hearts
And no more lovers to be torn apart
Before you throw me
in your dungeon dark
Your honour, they'll be putting statues up
In every park!
