ClearScreen

the league I used to be in used CBS Sportsline for Fantasy Baseball every year, but it was about $130 for the league. I think FanTrax has a good free service.

What a Peanut Buttery Beverly week this was! So glad it's over in less than half-an-hour. Let's see, in the past five days:
1. Dad had an exploratory procedure that confirmed the existence of a brain aneurysm. He'll be having it removed in an endovascular coiling procedure shortly after the first of the year (he needs to be on blood thinning meds for a couple of weeks before the procedure). The exploratory procedure confirmed that the source of the aneurysm is a congenital structural defect, so my brothers and I are being encourage to get MRAs done to test and see whether we have the same abnormality.
2. That post-trial brief I thought was due on Friday? Yeah. Not exactly. It had to be postmarked THURSDAY, and we had our office holiday luncheon on Wednesday. I didn't notice that the date had been calendared wrong until Thursday morning. Luckily, I was able to scramble and get it done, but Thursday was a hell of a day.
3. Discovery responses that got shuffled aside so I could finish the post-trial brief got finished and sent out today. That was a scramble too, because with one legal secretary out on maternity leave, we're down to two legal secretaries for the entire 20 attorney office. The responses were ready to go out only minutes before the last mail pickup of the day for our office (otherwise, I'd have had to walk them to the post office myself, not a big deal, but an additional time-consuming PITA).

I might actually get to come up for air for just a bit now, though I have two other big cases with looming deadlines that I need to pay attention to. One bright note - DW and I decided that we didn't feel like Chinese food and a movie this year, so we reserved a nice suite at Great Wolf Lodge and we'll be spending Christmas Eve at the indoor waterpark with the kids.

Great news. Yeah, the Blue Angels usually fly at the Alliance Airshow at Alliance Airport here in Ft Worth (it's just a few miles down the road from me.) We usually get to see the practice runs the days before the airshow, then can see most of the demonstration from my neighborhood. Sure beats fighting the crowds at the airport.

I wish him luck on his test. I am sure he will get his crest soon.

When you make a GKTW page it asks how long you would like it use it. The shortest period of time was 6 months and as I wanted to make it an annual fundraiser that lasted for about a month. I selected the six months. I think I should have mede it perpetual so that we could have a running total of our the DDC contributions over all time. I will get it going in case anyone wants to make a Christmas donation.

Sounds good! We have to drive a few hours to see them but it's worth it. He won't know if he's scheduled to do the Ft. Worth show until February when their work schedule comes out.
