Monday Morning

Another Monday here in Ottawa, the nation's capital.

Another hot, sticky, humid day shaping up here in the city. Thunderstorms and rain are forecast for later in the day and all. In the meantime, I am buried in a stack of work papers and it could be a long day.

First cup of herbal tea is on my desk already. Oy! :)

GenCon Thought(s)

Well, since GenCon Indy 2009 is coming up this Thursday through the weekend, I figured that those of you who are going to the convention must be getting ready to leave for Indianapolis, or may even be on your way or have arrived there.

I just want to wish you all a safe, good trip to the convention, hope that everybody going to GenCon has a good time, and that you all make sure to *POST STUFF* here so that those of us who aren't there can live vicariously through you, and all that good stuff.

Look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts and impressions, and am envious that I won't be there! :)

Happy Birthday, Ian Anderson

Happy Birthday, Ian Anderson! :)

Ian Anderson, the lead singer of the British progressive rock group Jethro Tull celebrates his 62nd birthday (I believe) today. I have long been a fan of Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson's solo work, and am delighted that Ian is celebrating another birthday.

::singing:
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday, dear Ian,
Happy Birthday to you!
::stop singing::

Best wishes, Ian. :)

Oh, and for those who want to learn more about Ian's work and Jethro Tull, here's the band's website link:

Ian Anderson Videos, Sort of...

In honour of Ian Anderson's birthday today, a couple of videos.

First off, a terrific rendition of Jethro Tull's "My God".



And then, something...very funny, very strange, and totally weird.
