Sorry for the delay...

For those very few of you who actually read this little blog, I would like to apologize for my tardiness in getting another post out. I've been "working" on my proposal for the various postdoctoral funding agencies. And I'm not enjoying it. I guess I feel a bit of pressure when around $90,000 is riding on a 2 page single-spaced proposal on work that I haven't even started. Anyway, I have a couple of pages now and I'm just going to put in a paragraph regarding the university I'm wanting to attend for this, and then I'll send it off to my current supervisor to check over before I send it off to the professors in Ottawa to have a quick look-over.

Then I have to take a look at the applications again and start putting those together in earnest. And get in touch with the professors that might give me recommendations.

My sister and her husband are getting a mac mini (computer), much like my own, except a newer model. I'm actually jealous.

I've been listening to a lot of Mortal and Adam Again recently. A friend suggested that the music that we think is the best as we get older is the music we were listening to when we were 17. So, I was 17 in 1990-91. Well, his theory sort of holds up, but not quite. I like the music I was listening to just after this time. Although I was a huge Daniel Amos and Randy Stonehill fan in high school and that has stuck with me. There's nothing like Adam Again's Dig and Perfecta though.

Gene Eugene and Adam Again were at the top of my play list all through my teen years. Their offerings still dominate my iPod playlist. Where can you find such a voice as Gene's? Such a loss for the music industry and the bands he was a part of, and those he produced. DIG and PERFECTA were incredible offerings. If you don't have them, take a look on eBay and get them. Well worth it. Nicholas, be encouraged, your hard work is reflective of your character - that's what my fortune cookie said.
