I won't bore you with a long list of the various things I intended to get done but I will just let you into the secret of one thing on the list. I had planned to get my post finished before Skip got up, which isn't easy because he gets up ridiculously early, especially for a Californian. My hope was to beat Skip at his own game by announcing to the world at large:
It's on Friday this month!
But he's already been up for hours by now - although I don't think he has posted anything about the 13th as yet so maybe I have got in first after all.
