a pat on the back

Before I begin, I'd like to mention that I've had tons to say but couldn't because my laptop was acting up. In reality, we found out yesterday, my laptop battery had been recalled and it wasn't holding a charge.

Last night, I replaced the battery and this morning it was fully charged, to something close to 6 hours. I seriously can't remember a time when I was able to use my laptop unplugged for more than a couple of hours. Thanks Apple Care, you're worth it.

And now for a little pat on the back.
Toby has been a writer for a long time. And his poetry has developed into more than a young man's call for action. And finally, he has been recognized for his talent.

Next month he'll be accepting a first place award for A Picture Taken at a Hotel. It is much deserved and we're so proud.
