Before things went terribly wrong...

Turns out the silicone bread pan wasn't a good idea. An hour and a half later and the bread was still goo inside :(

Thought For The Day

A few interesting snipits from this article.

It's not enough to just sit there and have compassionate thoughts. Your compassionate thoughts need to be reflected in what you do. You need to help other people. Once you start to see through the myth of status, possessions, and unlimited consumption as the path to happiness, you'll find that you have all kinds of freedom and time. You give up greed for freedom.

Heading to the airport to welcome a friend that is visiting California for a 3 month vacation ... that has started off a little rocky. INS didn't believe my little Spaniard friend was coming for pleasure. So she spent the day in interrogation and detention :( I hope these balloons will help her feel a little more welcome!

Bag Of Goo

Action @ last!

Today I get to feed my bag of goo (aka friendship bread starter).
