First, the not so good news. It seems that the Eastern Canadian Arctic is warming faster than even the recent steady stream of bad news had suggested. The the "good" news; our home-grown countryside-destoying tarsands project is in the hands of people who don't know how to promote it.
Three reasons to be thankful:
- I managed, despite quite a bit of difficulty, to get Emma the follow-up appointment with a specialist that she needs. I think I contacted two hospitals, three clinics, and some other offices along the way. In the end it was an email that did it, in which I leveraged a well-chosen party via CC.
- We had a nice dinner in a restaurant for the first time since Emma .. well, since Emma. We didn't have a plan to eat out but a trip downtown by the family to do some shopping bled into dinner time and I was in the area.
- I got myself a new headlight for my bike. It's a powerful one Watt unit and charges via USB connector. I rode home with cabbies yielding to me rather than attempting vehicular manslaughter. Not at all bad for $20.
