Hiatus, sort of.

I am working an insane amount this week, and will be next week as well. This could go on for a while, so I will be doing very limited posting.

On the, other hand, I was passing through the Drs lounge in surgery last weekend and there were several docs watching the Olympics. About six or seven middle aged, professional men. the topic of discussion was which group of women athletes were the hottest. There were several votes for volleyball players and runners. One doc held out for swimmers. Said he liked the broad shoulders, skinny hips and little butt. (I hope he was talking about the women.) It seems you can take the guy out of the locker room, but you can't take the locker room out of the guy.

The answer, by the way, is high jumpers.

New Project

So I haven't been doing much blogging recently. This is in part because I have been working on a rather large project.

Anybody who knows me knows that I like to make lists. Not "To Do" lists, but lists of things. One of the things I like to make lists of is books. Since my first daughter was born, I have developed an interest in children's literature. So obviously I had to start making a list of good children's literature.

I've decided to put this list as a web site, in part as an exercise in learning HTML. The first draft is over there. It's ugly, there are massive formatting problems and is incomplete. There probably will be a blog attached to it later.
