Has it really been that long since I posted? Sorry.

It's been a whirlwind couple of months. Everything from health stuff blowing up (a whole week in the hospital, I may elaborate later), to lab stuff getting busy, to lifestyle changes (I started running, quit smoking, quit caffeine and lost 10 lbs. If you know me personally, but we haven't talked in a while, I'm sorry I just made your head explode.).

That's a lot of parenthetical life events, isn't it? It's also a lot of blog fodder, so I will try to be a little more frequent with the postings. Maybe I can squeeze out a post or two on the weekends. We'll see.

Just keep in mind: I am not Metamucil®, I don't promise regularity.

Hey LB,

No need to apologize. Any posting no matter how irregular will be appreciated.

Sorry to hear about your medical difficulties.

I will try to be inspired by your life style changes and get off my fat ass.

I got my Galeleo scope but have not had the motivation to put it together yet. I hope it is not to hard to assemble.

Thanks for the med sympathy. I guess I needed a bit of a kick in the pants.

About the scope, I found the downloads from the website was far better than the photocopy in the box. If they haven't changed the directions, that is. The instructions left our a couple of key steps and orientation of the rear lenses. Kinda useful info.

I still have not had time to deal with the scope. Maybe when I get back from my trip to Atlanta. Thanks for the tip about getting instructions from the web site.

We had some layoffs at work so I have that to deal with. I think I need to start looking for another job.

I hope your lifestyle changer are still going well.

Sympathies with the work stuff. It's rough all 'round with the employment thing in this economy.

The lifestyle changes are going pretty well, thanks. I'm feeling a good bit better and even thinking about trying a 5k.
