This has been the busiest June I can remember. I was in charge of the Friends of the Albany Public Library annual meeting, which involved arranging for the speaker, planning a dinner for 20, and getting a plaque made, the latter two of which had more complications than I need to go into here. But it ultimately went off successfully. The best part is that I discovered an old-fashioned drink called a sidecar; I loved it!

Our church is in covenant with one of the local schools, and one Saturday, that meant putting together a playground, which entailed, among other things, clearing a field of weeds and a tremendous amount of trash. Here’s a brief news story.

I attended a comic book show. Went to at least three parties, with another two this upcoming weekend. I’m not even counting visits to the dentist and eye doctor.

The big thing, though, was that the Daughter had not one, but two dance recitals. The first was at her public school, where she was a new recruit in something called Step. A couple weeks later, her ballet school was having its annual recital. That school’s founder is one Madeline Cantarella Culpo. One of her grandsons is Michael Culpo, a Division I basketball player, while one of her granddaughters is the new Miss USA, Olivia Culpo; she is understandably proud.

Why I am getting so much spsam on this site, over 300 per day? The filter catches it, but it’s still tedious to remove. And most of it is of the bad spam variety, from companies selling electronic cigarettes, payday loans, or “pantyhose covered female foot fetish,” filled with suspicious links and unreadable text. Whereas GOOD spam is: “Helpful info. Lucky me I discovered your web site by chance, and I am shocked why this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.” I know it’s a lie, but at least it’s pleasing to the eye.

    I am not Spam Roger, but as a kid I ate a lot of it! It has gotten kinda expensive these days!

  • Hey, thanks Roger, for volunteering in my neighborhood! The new outdoor play area looks great. I went to the ribbon cutting on June 20, every kid in the school came out to listen to politicians and school officials. It was already hot so it was a short ceremony.

    Your June sounds like my May! And here’s to GOOD spam…We need all the encouragement we can get some days. 🙂

  • I’m always amazed at the aggressive spam, the stuff that criticises you or your layout, or whatever. Do they think that will somehow shame us into letting their spam through? Hmph.
