It's Tuesday, Day Four of Fire Watch.

According to today's article in the Register, the Freeway Complex fire is 75% contained, and they hope for full containment by tomorrow.

There's also an investigation into what might be the cause of the Freeway Complex fire: a hot catalytic converter.

If full containment does happen tomorrow, then I'll spend Thursday and Friday cleaning. It needs to be done, anyway.

UPDATE: Well, at least Thursday during the day. Just got an e-mail saying my gaming group will be having a Thursday evening meet. I'm SO there.


So my dentist appointment went well. It was just a cleaning, and things are improving. The fire made it with a block or two of my dentist's office, but no closer. After that, I mailed Brin's Christmas present at the post office next door.

I then, as is my wont, had lunch at Chevy's before going in to work. As I left, I saw a fire truck parked outside - I guess the firefighters were taking a break.

I left a note of thanks on their truck. If I could have, I would have bought their lunch.


For all those who want universal health care - do you really want the government to make this choice for you?


Neal Boortz writes here about the automotive bailout.

Let them go bankrupt. It will give them a chance to restructure.


Well, yeah - I could've told them that.

No response yet from Chuck Norris.


Condolences to Bob Lai over at the Ministry Of Shadows.

I've been where he is, made the same choice. I know what he's going through.


Okay, things to do and lunch to grab.

Be seeing you,
