I spent the day yesterday teaching executives how to use their new laptops. It was a full day, one that wore me out. And on the radio driving home, on the first workday of September, I heard September is the most stressful month. The reasoning: days getting shorter, summer ending bringing the start of school and end of summer vacations, thus everyone back and projects getting back in full swing. I can buy that. And it explains something. I always try to start new things in September. I probably ought to cut that out.
I’m working on a magnum opus for here, but it’s not ready, and won’t be for today. I’m too tired.

Don’t burn out too quickly, Dave. You should save your magnum opus for when you’re forty or fifty. I would hate to have my greatest achievement at your age. It’s all down hill from there.
Magnum opus so far. In 15 years it’ll be small potatoes, but something that led up to the really good stuff.
