I think it's the crazy weather we've been having. A lot of people (me included) have been down and feeling out-of-sorts the past few days. Believe me, Ronn, you're not alone. Posted by: PatCH on April 17, 2003 11:22 PM
PatCH: part of it has been the weather. The crazy up and down nature is making me sick. But it's also a hectic schedule and my poor attempts to juggle several projects all at once. Mr. Anzi: I will be contacting you this weekend. We need to talk, plan and have a drink somewhere. Esp. since EJ is in town. Posted by: ronn on April 18, 2003 09:37 AM
