We're back in New York. No wonder the flight was so expensive--there were all of seven of us on the flight, in a plane that seats 34 or so. Of course, there was a plus to this. All seven of us were there early, so the plane left 20 minutes ahead of schedule!

In a few minutes we'll be heading off to my sister's for Thanksgiving. There has been a little bit of snow here (I wonder how I'll clean off my rental car), but it's mostly stopped.

What I'm mostly thankful for is having my mom here. She needs a cane now, but she has come through her medical problems these last few months pretty well. She can still cook up her spaghetti just fine. Last night we had it, just like I had it 50 years ago (except she didn't put in the Italian sausage back then). Yum.

I'm now up in scenic Lowell, Massachusetts, visiting my sister and sister-in-law for Thanksgiving. This year we decided to stay in a hotel, and except for a distinct lack of easily accessible electric outlets, it's quite nice. We control the bathroom usage, the television usage, the thermostat, and even the computer usage--the WiFi in the hotel works just fine with my wife's new laptop (and we really didn't even have to bring that, since we could get internet access through the television--it has a keyboard).

"The biggest mistake the [record] labels are making is, they're letting their lawyers make technical decisions. Lawyers don't have any better understanding of technology than a cow does algebra," Leigh said.


We're going out to dinner to celebrate soon. Maybe I'll get a chance to blog a little when we get back.
