Reasons to Celebrate

1. Well, gang, it looks like my Health Insurance provider blinked! Yes - they have accepted my wife's recent surgery as being non-exempt from their "pre-existing condition" clause. WOO HOO! We'll now owe only thousands of dollars instead of tens of thousands of dollars.


2. Can you believe it? The Internet is good for something other than downloading porn! Who knew? Yes, thanks to the Learning To Share blog I found a link for The American Package Museum.

Well, finding that website was reason enough to get excited. Go there and see great, classic packages from the shelves of grocery stores gone by. (Broadbanders should go to the index and click on the "3D" modeling links. You won't be sorry!)

Here is the icing on the proverbial Hostess Sno-Ball: The site is curated by one Ian House. Ian is a great guy I met back in 1980 during a period of my life where I ran away to join the circus, so to speak. It turned out to be more freak show than carnival and maybe I'll post about it some time. But right now I'm so stoked about finally locating my old pal, Ian, I'll save that for another day. We have some catching-up to do...

Always to reconnect with others. And here I thought Stuff on my Cat was the only thing besides porn that was worthwhile on the net...

That is awesome. It's really cool that the insurance company blinked. And they should -- it's freaking insurance, for crying out loud.

Those are two definite reasons to celebrate. But do you know what the third reason is? My latest Censor Monkey episode is finally done. B)
