Pass the Echinacea

The Shakespeare Club and choir performances went wonderfully well on Saturday.

On Sunday, every member of this family came down with a raging cold.

Eight people burn through a lot of Kleenex, let me tell you. Small forests have died in service to this virus.

We have stayed home all week, so far. Beanie, who wants to learn Japanese, is watching a lot of GenkiJapan.net. I learned to count to ten in Japanese yesterday, quite by accident.

We also discovered LiveMocha, a language-learning program very much like Rosetta Stone, but free.

I had more to say, I’m pretty sure, but that’s all my pounding head can recall at at the moment. Achoo!
