Wow… lots of fireworks and firecrackers going off nearby. I just got a PM from reebee (Marie) over at Our Place saying that she’d send me a neat gadget she just happened to come across.

I heard the Chicago White Sox won the World Series yesterday: good for them for wiping away that 88-year-old curse!
