Good morning! Heck it's almost lunch time. Timothy and I went to the Merrimack YMCA. He worked on his tennis while I took a Step class. We stopped by A&E coffee on the way back, hoping to get a couple of Italian sodas, but they were out. I bought him a raspberry iced tea and I got an iced coffee.
Michelle is firing up the grill to make hamburgers and hot dogs. On a haunch I did a Google search on "hemoglobin headaches" and whaddya know? Headaches are linked to low hemoglobin levels. Surprised the oncologists didn't mention this.
I helped Timothy with a patch to his laptop to help keep it from locking up. His HP laptop sends a signal when it is getting warm that Linux is misinterpreting. The laptop does know to turn the fan on to cool things, but somewhere the BIOS and the OS get their wires crossed about responsibilities. In case I ever need it in the future, the solution is written up here in the HP forums.
After an afternoon nap, I did a little work to investigate whether some of the programs that Timothy has been working on at Khan Academy. You can see some examples of the types of things write here. Very cool web animations. Perhaps someday we might be able to show some of his better animations here.
Michelle ran off to Confession and get coffee. The girls have been getting ready. Abby has been helping Claire with her hair and makeup. Prom pictures start here around 3:45 and group photos around 4:15. See the snapshots below.
We saw Claire off and came back to the house. I setup the twins with Escape from Planet Earth while we were out. I picked up Chinese food for us to enjoy tonight before we watch the season finale of Doctor Who.
Epic season finale. The opening with Clara was great. I need find out a bit more about certain aspects of the ending. Between Tom and Wikipedia, I'm sure I'll get some things cleared up. Abby has a girl friend sleeping overnight.
Yawn! Claire is back home. She was nominated Prom Queen. Between the three giddy girls, I don't think they'll be asleep before 1am. I think tomorrow will be a late Mass for Pentecost. «grin»
There are also many other things that Jesus did,
but if these were to be described individually,
I do not think the whole world would contain the books
that would be written. — John 21
