The first post says it all Shalom, This is the home of the Pittsfield Jew. Sure its neat to read about Jews in Brooklyn who are very observant but how about a not so observant Jew who lives in the Mid West?

Jonny finished reading Wicked and it was 406 pages. Now he is on page 12 of Blood is the Sky. The book is telling how to make a log cabin.

Today Jonny listened to the parsha discussion for Tzav.

His lap top died. So he bought a new one.

Jonny is working on a data warehouse. He is moving data from Sybase to Oracle. One table at a time. The goal is to get 15 tables over there so the data can be queried.

Angelina started working again. She isn't supposed to be driving for another 2 months. She had a physical therapy appointment and it ran over. It will take them 2 hours to complete the initial processing. They only had 1 hour budgeted for this.

Sometimes the time is a lucky time. Hold on Jonny needs to use the bathroom here in Hotel Hilton, then have lunch.

Jonny is up to page 260 of Wicked. The book keeps making some weird twists and turns. It can be very uninteresting.

Earlier today Jonny decided to relax and let go. That is his mediation exercise.

He listened to the Torah chanting for this week's parsha which is Pikudei.

Jonny is programming VB. He just looked up online how to convert this big long if statement with many or's in it to its similar context as the in. In database languages the in statement is easy to use for example: Jonny's mood is in ('Good','Bad','Ugly'). The good, the bad and the ugly. Isn't that some kind of title for a movie?

Well Jonny is getting very thirsty doing all this programming and blogging. He might head on down to the water cooler. Over there the ladies are discussing the main actor to the TV show two and 1/2 men.

Angelina and Jonny have been watching about 2 episodes a night of that show. Unfortunately it got cancelled.

Jonny is programming in ASP.NET. He is debugging the code and hitting some blocks.

Jonny needs to bring in his cell phone charger. It was here at Hotel Hilton and now it is at home. Angelina needed it for her trip to Hotel California.

Ahh the phone is ringing now. It is Angelina. She is calling to yell about something.

MRI on Wednesday

Yes it's true. Angelina had to get an MRI today. Jonny had to take half a day off to hold her hand. And what's worse. They didn't go to Hotel California to get it done. They went to the competition. Well Jonny better get to work now. He has been at The Hotel Hilton for an hour. He made a cup of instant coffee and sent an email to a friend. Then he went to the library to meet a friend that he met on the internet who he know wouldn't show up. But Jonny still got a DVD of two and 1/2 men. Angelina likes that comedy. Jonny got back from the bus ride a short time ago. He was able to be in and out of the libary and back on the next #2 bus, less than 15 minutes later. His coffee was still warm. Lorraine's Bat Mitzvah parsha speech isn't very inspiring. It is all about love thy neighbor. Over the weekend Jonny was playing with his pathetic candle. Today Lorraine got invited to yet another Bat Mitzvah. Jonny finished a book. Patriot Games was 503 pages. He later that day started reading D.A. Willis by Connie Willis. This is a very short book. Angelina is having trouble with her legs. She has numbness and pain in them. The doctor sent her for this emergency test today. Well Jonny had better get busy: going to the bathroom, irrigating hisnose, cleaning the bathroom, watering the plants, relaxing and letting go, taking a nap and touching base with Rob.

Jonny has been feeling sick.

Today at work he was cleaning the database in VASE. Also at work there was no water in Hotel Hilton.

Right now he is listening to some labor music. Wendell and Kristina went to a museum over the weekend. On Sunday Jonny and Jesse called them. They said they bought this labor music and wanted to send it to Jonny. So using his expertise he said you had to send only 3 songs at a time.

Angelina bought tickets to the Chinese dinner at the temple.

Jonny just got back from seeing some of his peeps in the department. They were all too busy with the sugar cookie party. So Jonny took a cookie and went back to the Hotel Hilton. The water is on again. So he brushed and flossed and the irrigated his nose.

Jonny is on page 152 of Patriot Games. He needs to spend more time reading his book and less time playing on the internet. Playing on the internet is kinda like reading, nawh not really.

Lorraine through a fit over the weekend. Angelina and Alberta went shopping.She was babysitting and they left her behind. She is the real beauty queen and felt very slighted.

Jesses and Jonny got haircuts yesterday. Lorraine got bang trim just because.

Last night he barely ate dinner since he was so sick.
