Living in Hell - S.L.
Family emergency at 0500 yesterday had me driving halfway across the state to recover Offspring #2 from ER . . . oxygen sucked out of room for rest of day dealing with THAT situation . . . today Wifee has a laundry list of honey-do's longer than a non-Euclidean equation mapping the Universe in five dimensions . . . in the meantime if I don't cut the grass, pop the weeds, re-plant the trees, wash the cars around here NOBODY does . . . I have to cut the wood, router it and sand it for stands for her pottery pieces . . . little itty-bitty Oriental woman can't operate the cross-cut saw, can't even READ the calibrations on the measuring surfaces, never mind the router . . . NEVER MIND time for me to work out . . . and I can't make her go out, get a haircut & bring me it back to me . . . last time I wrote was a paragraph last weekend . . . now you know why STORMBRINGER is suffering never mind the novel . . .
In the meantime here's some interesting material from around the web:

Worse Is the New Normal "Obamacare is something new in American life: the creation of a massive bureaucracy charged with downsizing you — to a world of fewer doctors, higher premiums, lousier care, more debt, fewer jobs, smaller houses, smaller cars, smaller, fewer, less; a world where worse is the new normal. - Mark Steyn
