As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

Good morning, everyone! Happy Wednesday. (Is this a ridiculous was to spell a day's name?!? It really needs to be changed to wensday!) I have a steaming mug of East India Company's "Assam" tea on the table, a bowl of rice with Chinese Duck sausage mixed in, and a bowl of miso soup to go with it. Altogether, about 300 calories. I need to keep them down today (read 'today= next three weeks') to make up for yesterday...

10 vacation days I have 24 and I'm complaining
You need to move to Thailand. They have about 20 national holidays (some of them are 2-3 days long, and one lasts almost a week in some areas!) and another 10 public holidays.

This comes as a complete surprise for me. I figured that the water table was too high, as in Florida.

If you'd like, I can send you a mug with my picture on it. People have been calling me a Royal Pain for years.

Sleeping is good. Period.
I soooo regret all the naps I didn't take as a child!

My wife's cure too. She get's a cold, she goes to sleep for a day or two, and wakes up healthy. She can't understand why when I get sick I don't go to bed.

Time for one more mug of tea, then it's off to walk!
