I got a call from Lenee the other day. She's the wife of John the paper
millionaire of a dotcom and she wanted to know if I would help with their
garage sale to get rid of some stuff before they move into their new home.
I agreed, on the condition I didn't have to arrive at 9:00 am. She said to
show up at any time, preferrably before the garage sale ended.
I managed to arrive around 1:00 pm, beating
Mark. It was
pretty much finished by that time; only a few items left that their neighbor
While it was no one person's fault, a mirror did get broken, and Lenee was
highly upset over the incident. Okay, so it would cost about $75 to replace
the mirror, but no one was hurt, and the piece of furniture wasn't damaged
(other than the broken mirror). It could have been a lot worse.
Afterwards we left for lunch/dinner where the topic of conversation dealt
with the broken mirror. Sigh.

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
