Good Times
I've been in an unusually good mood for the last day or so. Little things have just been working out nicely for me. In particular, last night I finally got my Roku Soundbridge and my new PC to talk to each other successfully using Windows Media Connect. (It was all file permissions problems.)

Yesterday, I returned the video card and the power supply that I bought earlier in the month but later decided I didn't need. Got cash back for the PS and the video card was placed back into my bank account. Sweet.

We're pretty much ready for the Italy trip (which we leave for on the 19th) and I'm getting excited about that. Yesterday I sent off to judiang a packet of paperwork that we'd been collecting at our Italy meetings. This is going to be a fun trip! (So far, the weather is looking good - warm, but good!)

This morning, I was playing a little bit of City of Heroes when someone sent me a message wanting to know if I wanted to join in their power leveling team. Sure! Though I warned that I was cursed at being power leveled. (Power leveling is basically letting someone else do all the work and you getting XP - it's a quick way to get to a higher level.) I'm now close to being level 42 (a key level on my way to level 50). Woot!

Now I'm sitting at mom & dad's cabin at the Lake and drinking a grasshopper mist while I type this up. The weather is perfect and there's a steady breeze into the 3-season room. We're going to have grilled steaks & strawberry shortcake for supper. Life is GOOD! :-)

We're pretty well synchronized in the cuisine department. I grilled steaks at noon today. (Substantial N.Y. Strip steaks.) We had corn on the cob and baked potatoes with the steaks, and ice cream with fresh black raspberries for dessert. (Ardath picked the berries in her old yard -- she was out there to prepare the house to go on the market.)

We had a lovely dinner, and a nice time sitting around in the yard afterward. It's hot today, but it was very pleasant in the morning.

I've forgotten (or you haven't mentioned it) -- where in Italy will you be going?

Will you get to see... THE HEAD??????

We're doing a few days in Rome, then renting a villa in Tuscany (near Cortona) for a week. One of our day trips we've decided upon is to visit Siena - I'll keep an eye out for the Head. :-)

Definitely try and eat at La Carbonara while you're in Rome... most of my family agrees that it's where we had the best meal the entire time we were in Italy.
