    The unending rain here in Dublin is wearing me down, and I just can't seem to muster my usual good cheer. Does anyone have anything cheering they want to share?

    Upper management just forced the peons to switch to a more complicated way to do our job. After three days and too much overtime, it looks like we're gonna figure out how to do it the new way.

    I picked up after my dogs tonight and didn't realize that there was a small hole in the plastic bag until it was too late. Eww.

    I can unlock my private pictures for you. That might cheer you up. ;-)

    It's pouring with rain here as well, and it's Soho Pride today.

    I feel you pain Colm. It's getting me down too.

    Next summer has to be better :)

    Don't know if that helped?

    I understand how you feel ....
    it's one of the reasons that I moved from the cold and dreary NorthEast to Sunny Florida
    I used to get really rundown by the end of the winter :P

    God what a cheerful bunch!

    The weather is beautiful and we just got back from a long swim in the lake.

    My young cousin (who is staying with us this summer) goes to start college this week!

    That means Iain and I can finally go back to London, so that Iain can start classes two weeks later (Wahoo!!!). Unfortunately that also means a whole lot of business travel for me that I have been postponing.

    I just picked up a new painting by Steve Walker, one of my favorite artists (http://www.questart.com). My favorite is still "On the edge of the Universe" or maybe "Prince of Tides".

    It's August 19 and the Red Sox are still 5 games in front of the Yankmes.

    They're done putting the pavers down for my new driveway!!! No more mud and ruts!!!

    Going to see 'Much ado about Nothing' tonight, (Yeah Shakespeare!)

    Life is good. We're the lucky ones.

    Rob, Colm wants to be cheered up, not make him jealous :)

    Anyway I just heard the forecast and this week coming is supposed to be settled. So maybe we will get a summer yet.

    One can only hope. I suppose, considering all that is good in my life, I really oughtn't to be down, but this crushing greyness is giving me really violent mood swings for some reason.

    It raining here in Ohio too, but I'm happy because my grass needs a drink. Plus I'm out working in the yard (between rains) and it's nice that its cooled down.

    I just sold an investment property (wa hoo!). Didn't make any money on it :(

    At least its over. There are many who are fairing much worse trying to do flips right now.

    Hmm...given that you are already spending time inside on a computer with an Internet connection, I'll recommend:

    Girl Genius: Adventure, Romance, MAD SCIENCE
    http://www.girlgeniusonline.com
    A comic / webcomic on the Steam Age (with magic) misadventures of Agatha Clay, a woman with hidden talents and a past to be gradually uncovered.
    The wit and humor (on the part of author Kaja Foglio) frequently improve my mood whenever it is down in the gutter :-)

    I'll also recommend:

    I Can Has Cheezburger
    http://icanhascheezburger.com/
    A LOL-cat site that updates several times a day with new LOL-cat pictures.

    The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/apelad/sets/72157600296941365/
    A LOL-cat parody collection consisting of LOL-cat jokes drawn in an early 1900s newspaper comic style.

    My solution for blue mood : good dance music and dancing floor.

    A good song like "Catch the light" by Martha Walsh... does the trick for me.

    :-)

    Hi Colm,
    Just know that all that rain makes your landscape green and beautiful, your food to grow and that many of us (like here in LA) look forward to the short rainy season.

    Something else to cheer you up;
    You are a nice looking man in great health and have taken charge of your own destiny! That is something to be proud of and I am sure will
    help you in your life.

    It's raining here to, but we need it so it's a good thing.

    I've been fighting a sinus infection for a week now, so I've feeling a bit blue myself.

    I also recommend ICANHASCHEEZEBURGER.com

    and also

    CUTEOVERLOAD.com

    A good joke or two always helps, send some out to friends & see if you get any back, ask to share.


    THE URGE TO PURCHACE A LEXUS

    A lady walked into a Lexus dealership just to browse.

    Suddenly she spotted the most beautiful car that she had ever seen, and walked over to inspect it.

    As she bent forward to feel the fine leather upholstery, an unexpected
    little fart escaped her.

    Embarrassed, she anxiously looked around to see if anyone had noticed and hoped a sales person didn't pop up right now. But, as she turned back, there, standing next to her, is a salesman.

    With a pleasant smile he greeted her, "Good day, Madame. How may we help you
    today?"

    Trying to maintain an air of sophistication and acting as though nothing had happened, she smiles back and asked, "Sir, what is the price of this lovely vehicle?"

    Still smiling pleasantly, he replied, "Madame, I'm very sorry to say that if you farted just by touching it, you are going to shit when you hear the
    price."




    THEY ARE FINALLY TOGETHER

    She married and had 13 children. Her husband died. She married again
    and had 7 more children. Again, her husband died. But, she remarried and
    this time had 5 more children. She finally died after having 25
    children.
    Standing before her coffin, the preacher prayed for her. He thanked the Lord for this very loving woman and said, "Lord, they're
    finally together."
    One mourner leaned over and quietly asked her friend," Do you think he means her first, second or third husband?" The friend replied," I think he means her legs."
