Went to dinner last night with my friend John. It was warm, and we went to Rouge on Rittenhouse Square and sat outside - but near enough to the open windows and the AC that it wasn't unbearable. We split a big bowl of mussels for a starter, and I had proscuitto with figs and goat cheese for my main course. It was very nice.
There were a lot of dogs out last night, including an adorable white fluffy puppy. Not sure what breed, but it was small enough to fit in its owner's purse.
Just finished setting up my new "Blackberry" wireless e-mail system. It's the size of a Palm Pilot, but with a tiny keyboard as part of the handset. It tracks to a wireless server within our e-mail system so I can pick up my office e-mails remotely. It's pretty neat - there are a lot of features I need to figure out, and I'm not sure if there are areas of the country it won't cover but I'm sure I'll find out.
[Probably the hard way.]
In keeping with an electronic theme, there is a wildlife trust that allows people to follow the migration of a half dozen Brent Geese as they return to their Canadian breeding grounds from Iceland. They have tagged them with satellite transmitters, so the individual's progress can be tracked and mapped. "Hugh" and "Kerry" have already crossed into Canada, but "Austin" is way behind - still on the east coast of Greenland. Maybe he was named after Austin Powers?
