Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

There has been a lot of concern lately and some very high-profile cases regarding the efforts of the religious right to put God into our schools and government. In some cases, they have succeeded temporarily while in others, they have not. Still, while I oppose their efforts at every opportunity, they do not frighten me as much as they do some.
Sara was having a heck of a time getting to sleep tonight -- crying her head off and refusing to lie down. I lay down on the floor next to her crib; sometimes that works, but not tonight. So I turned on my laptop, connected to the server, and started playing Stevie Ray Vaughan's Riviera Paradise and Lenny. Worked like a charm. She calmed down, lay down, and drifted happily off to sleep.
