I'm still alive

I scratched on the Quadrupedal because I was sick and the CSL Behring sponsored Alpha1 retreat lasted through Sunday afternoon at 1pm. I had a beautiful long post that got lost in cyber space I composed 5/5/07. I will try to recreate it another day as I have an early morning dental appointment. I will also bring you up to speed on my Sunday afternoon escapades in the Mad City!!
