Lots of stuff happening since the last update.

My brother moved to Barberton two weekends ago. My foot felt alot better after staying off of it on that Saturday, which was unfortunate since I helped him move on Sunday. He rented the biggest moving van, a 25-footer. We got everything in the van, but it took about 4 hours! Then we had to pick up a chair, bed, and couch from his father-in-law in Wooster before going to Barberton.

The house is not too bad for a first time fixer-upper, and they said they have a good deal. There's no front yard, it's sort of on a main street (main industrial street), but it does have a good size backyard. All of it needs work, which they don't seem mind.

Anywho, the primary election in Ohio wasn't too good. Ken Blackwell, the darling of the Religious Right in Ohio, won the nominatiion for governor. I was surprised Jeanette Bradly for state treasurer lost her bid also - I thought she was very popular with Republicans, and gay-friendly, which may have hurt her down in southern Ohio.

Which is one of the reasons we want to get our stalled LCR OHIO moving again. Ted Jackson is heading that project since he is better at organizing than most of us. Our next meeting is before Columbus Pride. Nobody here has heard from Cleveland Pride yet which I think is unusual sicne they like money early. But we did meet up with the at Network Metro Cleveland last night and they'll have more information soon. "Stay tuned", they said.

The first day I got back to work from my week of vacation last week and I caught a very bad cold. I took off yesterday to get some rest. I feel better now but this cold hit hard and lasted long. I fell back on eating at fast food and drinking diet sodas while I was sick and my blood pressure proves it. Outside of not taking care of myself, I hope to remain disease-free this year so I can do more Log Cabin thingies!

The lady I do the lawn for, Mikey's mom, had been in the hospital the past month. Had surgery for a colon cyst. She is at home resting after they removed the staples. She is thinking about going to work at the end of May. I did her front lawn on Monday after getting the lawnmower repaired (broken pull cord), but her back yard will take another 4 hours to do (it's only a 22-inch blade). Will have to make it a weekend project - and my weekend exercise.

That's all.

You figure boywondermark could wiggle something else to make me feel better.

On second thought, it would probably overheat me. ;-)
