Dogs, Wii, and Gerry Rafferty

The dogs settled in quite well after the kids left for school. Sadie took her unusual spot on top of the recliner.


Alex ended up where she always does.


I thought today would be a slow day at work but I was so wrong. The good news is that I am still in complete control of my inbox since I cleaned it all up last week. Tracking 70 active projects at once can cause the inbox to explode quite quickly!

After work, I completed day 1 of the 30 day challenge in EA Sports Active for the Wii. This is the older version. There is a new one out with a heart monitor. Mine just has a gigantic rubber band and is $40 cheaper.


Within 5 minutes I thought I might collapse. At the end of 20 minutes, I had to sit down for about 30 minutes and relearn how to breathe. It’s going to be a tough 30 days but I certainly need to do something because 10 hours a day in front of the computer is turning me into a young Santa Claus.

Finally, Gerry Rafferty left the mortal world today. I find it weird that the singers I liked from the late 70’s are old enough to be slowly dying off now. It appears that Gerry did himself in over time with poor lifestyle choices. He obviously had no EA Sports Active program.

Most people remember him for 1978’s “Baker Street” but “Right Down the Line” is one of my favorite songs so here it is:

And for the rest of you, here is the actual video for “Baker Street”:
