sweet release

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present an update. I'm sure there has been much gnashing of teeth brought on by anticipation for the next RossiCast. From my fingertips to your eyes -- it's going to happen. I've got a lot of good things to share - of the variety that stay crispy in milk for *hours*. I have no idea what that is supposed to mean. Maybe some one can tell me. I'm working hard (that is to say I'm working), so I'll have a lot to say when I finally get around to speaking. At least more to say than "I'm working on a lot of projects".

In my downtime, I've been filling my head with lots of fun stuff:

dog days

Life is slowly returning to normal in the Rossi household. Normal being used in the most loose and relative sense of the word.  We have slugged our way through hospitalizations, surgeries, and recoveries. We've weathered the illness of one pet (Doobie was paralyzed!).   In the end, we survived it all with barely a scratch (well, a few, tiny, incisions).  I want to say I'm not superstitious - but I've been knocking on wood for days.

I'm getting back on track with my projects.  I'm recording. I'm writing.  I'm feeling creative again.  Wahoo to that.  The eight PodCast should, for all intents and purposes, show up sometime next week.

A heat wave has rolled into Virginia this week.  The weather is *almost* hotter than my wife.  I actually set up one of those reflective contraptions to keep my car from melting today.  I don't know that I've ever used one before.  I found it in the trunk (of all places)   I decided to give it a shot, after burning myself on the seatbelt yesterday.

I, for one, don't mind the dog days.  I can't wait to go running this afternoon.  I'll just avoid the shiny objects with heat waves rising off'm.

Happy day.
