One aspect of not reading the newspaper or watching TV news is that you can be out of the loop...last night I was reading Mark Twain's autobiography, and didn't go on the computer or check my b'berry either so I didn't catch the info. on my fb feed. Missing such big news isn't making me reconsider my moratorium - it really doesn't matter that I didn't know about OBL until this morning.
After the battery recharged yesterday I did manage to get the weed whacking done, and also a little yard clean up. However anything more will have to keep until after grades are done :-(.
