There is plenty of bad news around the world that makes you wonder where we're headed.

Every once in a while, you come across something that restores your faith in humanity.

So there I was. No shit. True story. (All the best war stories start this way)

Lunch at a local watering hole. Burgers that have their own gravity well. Meat, bacon, cheese. Vegetables other than onions would just be a distraction. Plenty of sports on the TV. A cheerleading on one of them. We all know the cheerleaders make anything better.

My compadres both fell...

Watched the first local showing of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" this evening.

AWESOME!

They did right by the book with the screenplay. They didn't leave out the hooks to the future films like the Swedish version. Rooney Mara aced her role as Lisbeth. I've got my fingers crossed they do as good a job as this on the other two.

Awesome...I was planning to see it...can't wait!

I'm presently up in MA on a business trip. It is the M-F 0830-1700 type of trip rather than the crazy 16-20hrs/day 7 days a week trip. Of course that means figuring out what to do on the weekend.

Busy busy busy. Met with my septic designer and wetlands specialist yesterday. We found a good spot for the drainfield (Glendon Biofilters) and the wetlands aren't going to be an issue. Hooray! Now I just have to do more surveying and stake the corners of where I want the house, garage, and pumphouse.

Did some more mowing yesterday while waiting on the septic/wetlands...

Made it home. A looooooong time on airplanes. I'd love to do a big picture update, but I have to watch MasterChef! I hear a rumor somebody special is going to be on tonight.
