Today's post comes courtesy of friend Bruce, who lent me his spare monitor when the previous monitor suddenly died last week. I thought that perhaps the 23-month old had somehow done something to it. I spent the last week posting from the library.

I have a question for the bloggers amongst you, which is: When do you blog?
My usual schedule during the week is to post at 5:30 a.m., when my wife gets up to take a shower, until 6, when I get dressed in anticipation of Lydia getting up.
Most nights, I have another block after I've changed Lydia into her pajamas and her mother puts her to bed, and perhaps a few minutes when Carol gets ready for bed.

Happy Birthday, by the way. Interesting that it's Rachel Weisz's birthday as well. Nice present she got tonight. Good pick.

Happy birthday, Roger!

I usually post when I can, I don't really have a set time.

Scott said...

Happy Birthday Roger.

Hoppy Bird Day.

I usually post first thing in the morning at work, if I already know what I'm writing about. If not, I usually post after my shift ends, while I'm waiting for my ride and & beautiful darling wife to pick me up. We're a one car family.

So, do I read your blog correctly that your olde monitor is DOA, and you got a new one?
Yeah, sometimes these beasts just up and die. What kinda monitor did you get?
Hope all is well, despite your impending age!!
