I had a dentist appointment, yesterday. Unlike a lot of people, I don't fear the dentist. The last time I saw one was 2 years ago. I never did a follow up because they wanted me to pay above what the insurance said I was supposed to. Since it had been 10 years since my last visit and I had no cavities, I said "Screw it!" and never went back to him. So, I went to a new guy, yesterday, with my new insurance. He said in his 12 years of practice, he's only seen two or three patients that had neither fillings nor cavities. He asked me if I ate small amounts of sugar.

Apparently, he doesn't know me very well. (;<

I also updated the description for the Prototype Windows link.

Added some new Harley Quinn images. See what snack food I'm feeding him that I probably shouldn't.

I've recently been reading both Fark.com and Digg.com. Yeah, I'm always a little bit behind the curve on these things. I did register and occasionally post on Digg splorpdotorg on Digg.com in new window. Both sites are similar and I do enjoy both the serious (rare) and humourous (frequent) news items.

I just ran into this interesting site Prototype Windows Class: Samples in new window. One of the customers at work was asking if he could implement some of these on his store (answer: yes). I passed it around to everyone at work and all agreed: COOL. I may see if I can implement some of the functions on my site. Gotta love open source / freeware! Thanks to Sébastien Gruhier for the hard work.

Below is Harley Quinn, our Green-Cheeked Conure

Drusilla, the Vampire Parakeet To the left, you’ll see Drusilla,
the Vampire Parakeet, named after
a character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
because she bit like a vampire.
She passed away on 12/20/04.
