From today's Sun-Times:

Today's chuckle

Several elderly nuns were in their third-floor convent one night when a fire broke out. The nuns took their habits off and tied them together to make a rope to get out of the burning building via the window.

After they were safely on the ground, a news reporter came over to one of the nuns and asked her, "Weren't you afraid that the rope you made out of your habits could have broken, especially since they are so old?"

"No, of course not," the nun replied. "Everyone knows that old habits are hard to break."

I saw this on [info]filkerdave's LJ and thought it was too good a story to bury!  http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/08/nyregion/08batmitzvah.html?_r=2&th&emc=th&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

Sorry for the messy link.  I haven't figured out how to insert it 'pretty'.

Flook (www.flook.co.uk) put on a really nice show at Ballydoyle last night.  All they do is Irish trad, and they are very good!  Their latest release is "Haven".

Flook (winners of the 'Best Group' at the BBC Folk Awards in 2006) are going to be at Ballydoyle in Downers Grove (Illinois) tonight.  In the next few weeks (among other places) they will be in Madison (Wisconsin), Cedar Rapids (Iowa), Minneapolis (Minnesota), Manchester (New Hampshire) and Atlanta (Georgia) before heading back to Ireland and the UK.  I have not heard them before, but they come highly recommended.

I don't care what the temperature is, when the wind is 50% higher than the temperature, it is darned uncomfortable!

You would think that being the computer creature that I am, I would have gotten onto LJ long ago.  Oh, well.  Better late than never!  Keeping it short for tonight (not feeling very creative).
