On this auspicious day (ding, dong, the 8-year reign of idiocy is over), I am very pleased to report that the blood tests and ultrasounds came out perfectly normal, so much so that no amnio is needed after all (insert big sigh of relief), and...it's a boy! The pictures leave, er, no doubt. F will be thrilled, he really wanted a little brother (who will, no doubt, idolize him).

So now we need to start thinking of boy's names. Given the new puppy in the house, I can't help but think of Sean Connery in the third Indiana Jones movie: "We named the *dog* Griffin..." "The DOG?"

hee hee. C didn't think that was so funny.


local fun

For anyone local who wants something fun to do tonight -- I'll be there skiing with F, and it looks like all the Casa Chaosites will be converging there as well.

Motivated by the Presidential Inauguration, Upper Valley nonprofit groups are getting together to organize A Community Celebration. The concept for the event stems from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund (NEGEF)'s response to President-elect Barack Obama's November 4th invitation to:"...join in the work of remaking this nation, the only way it's been done in America for 221 years: block by block, brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand." NEGEF's concept as adapted by local nonprofit groups is to use the occasion of this Presidential Inauguration as a way to focus on the work that Upper Valley groups do for the community. Let's celebrate community service in our region!

FEATURING: Dr. Burma (music), Large screen viewing of the Presidential Inauguration (taped), table displays by local nonprofit groups, snacks, cash bar, and good company! Sweet Scoops, Lui Lui, Three Tomatoes Trattoria, Cabot Creamery, The Coop Food Store, Boloco, Panera Bread, Shepard's Pie on the Green and The Dirt Cowboy Cafe have all agreed to make generous food contributions for the party.

COST: Suggested donation of $5 per person (this will go to reimbursing participating organizations, so far including the Upper Valley Land Trust, Upper Valley Haven, Vital Communities, Upper Valley Educators Institute, Sustainable Food Laboratory, Enfield Shaker Museum, Northern Stage, Puppetree, Inc., Second Growth, Headrest, Connecticut River Joint Commissions and Upper Valley United Way).

WHERE: Whaleback, 160 Whaleback Mountain Road, Enfield, NH. (Whaleback generously agreed to donated their space in support of the work that local NGOs do.) They'll be open for skiing until 8pm.
