The Ides of March

Just a quick post before I hit the sack.  I hope to catch up on comments and stuff this weekend.  

It's been 12 years.  Was kind of weird, because this is the first year that I worked at H&R on the anniversary of Rick's death.  Almost made me afraid to go home, ya know.  

I've posted this before, and I will post it again.  It makes me happy.  

Rick taught me:

That's just absolutely wonderful. Thanks for sharing, such an obviously awesome guy.

And they say you learn something every day. This has to be 'it' for today: "Alka Seltzer makes seagulls explode." No way! Awesome! I'm just laughing wondering how this auspicious discovery was made:P
