I'm feeling much better today.
Back on Friday I first felt the inklings of a cold inching its way into my system, and I began a schedule of heavy vitamin-C and a sea of fluids, followed by heavy sleep, and that seems to have done the trick.
But it wasn't all chicken soup and tissues. On Sunday, groggy from having just gotten up (around 7:00 pm), I went to the kitchen to make some tea and soup. I turned on the wrong burner (easy enough to do) and almost burned down Casa New Jersey when a stove cover (these thin metal lids that cover stove burners when not in use) caught fire. Fortunately, Wlofie caught it in time.

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: https://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
