Today is turning out, so far, to be a nice quiet day. There's no meat but we get to dance. It appears that Uncle Frankie is back in commission. He showed up yesterday & hung around for a few hours. Predictably, he's still more than a little bit on the hoarse side. He just started feeling well enough to get out again on Wednesday. The latest among the cousins is a quiz & trivia, first started by Java & Nunziata, about St. Valentine & all the romance, candy, etc. of the big day. Mary Anne really started it with her picture of the preserved remains of St. Valentine in Italy. Technically yesterday was really the Feast of Sts. Cyril & Methodius. St. Cyril was the one who devised Russia's alphabet. That doesn't strike many people as all that romantic, though, so they chose Valentine. As of Monday, Myspace sites will no longer be available at the library. At a recent board meeting, the top bananas decided that the only way to protect the young uns was to block it completely. Of course if they would have blocked it for only minors, according to the lady I spoke to, there would have been inevitable cries, from all the troublemakers, of discrimination. Thank the liberal influence for that.
