Go figure.

Yet another 365.2421897 days around the sun

I wasn't sure how many New Year entries I've done, and I was rather surprised to find that I've managed to post on the first of January every year except for 2001 and 2002. And far be it from me to stop that tradition this year.

Last night our crazy neighbor was at it again. I wasn't about to view the show up close, but the trajectories of the fireworks meant we had a decent view from the screened in back porch (and the roof at Chez Boca is tile, so live embers weren't an issue).

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go 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:, 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 important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
