Hey everyone, just a short update. Sorry for not being around much this past week.
Was in Baltimore all last week on business where it rained, rained and then rained some more! But not a bad trip, the conference was really good and interesting. Flew back on Friday night and by Saturday I had a lovely head cold. Seems I picked something up on the plane. I keep swearing that I'm going to start wearing a mask on airplanes, just worried about looking out of place and getting kicked off - lol. But that Dulles airport is wall to wall people, god only knows who I picked the bug up from. Unfortunately I felt find on Friday when I got home so promptly gave the bug to Jen. Seems to have about a 12 hour incubation, it's a fast one. So we're both off work today snuffing and sniffing. Each suffering at our own homes.
Hope to return to work tomorrow but I'm about 50/50 at this point. Jen seems to be recovering faster, must be the Cold FX she takes.
I had recorded Stephen Hawking's "The Story of Everything" and this line sort of hit me - "We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special."
And my all time favourite Hawking quote - "I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road."
