Apologies for my unnecessarily sappy post last night -- I think I may have had too much sun. Karma has paid me back for poor writing with a terribly painful shoulder, caused by the tremendous fights that were my attempts to get out of the water.
When we were younger -- back in the days that the Crestliner was a good boat and buffalo still roamed the open plains -- we would do our best to think up good excuses as to why we couldn't get out of the water: "I think I'm leaning a little too far forward;" "My grip was wrong on that attempt."
Sunday, however, we were struggling to find new excuses. Among the ones we came up with: the earth's rotation, global warming, and the position of the sun. Of course, it had nothing to do with the fact that we are older and heavier.

It's actually pretty amazing how much information exists within the BBC's website. I am convinced that if there are weapons of mass destruction anywhere in Iraq, their exact location is revealed on a buried and forgotten page somewhere on the BBC's site.
Golly. That sure is convenient. I'm sure it was an honest mistake, though -- no nefarious activity whatsoever.
This story makes no mention of Richard having a wife of girlfriend. I wonder why...

The USA Rugby match against France will be broadcast July 18 -- more than two full weeks after the match actually took place. And they say there isn't enough support for rugby in America. Fie, I say! At least it shouldn't be hard for you to go all that time without learning the score.
Have I ever told you how much I love modern science? Thank you drug companies. Thank you!
