And now, two cute pictures of my cat. Isn’t she angelic, sitting there in that patch of sunlight? Doesn’t she just look like the sweetest thing? And here’s a note that our catsitter left when we got back from vacation. Click to enlarge. “Fluids” means subcutaneous fluids, the reason we hired a catsitter in the …

Tech issues with the blog: comments and archives

Just a quick FYI: If you’re having trouble clicking on comments in the “Recent Comments” list, you’re not alone.

Skeptic’s Circle #70… and a Rant on Alternative Medicine

Skeptic’s Circle #70 is up at Conspiracy Factory. They were kind enough to include my piece Seeing Jesus On Drugs… a decision they may come to regret, as it’ll only encourage me to blog drunk again.
