I'm in the Computer Room.
Bunny is in the family room watching TV.
I suddenly hear a tune that sounds eerily familiar—I know this music!
It's from a TV show,
but I can't remember which one.
I rush out,
only to find it's a commercial using the music.
But it's so familiar!
I grab my phone and fire up Shazam.
“Excuse me,” I say,
as I grab the remote from Bunny to rewind and watch the commercial over again.

I haven't thought about him or his TV show in years!
And yet for some odd reason,
I was reminded of him today.
I wonder if it has anything to do with the lepcrehauns on the lawn?
Oh, I've got to go—dinner is ready,
corned beef and cabbage—wait a minute …

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

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
