A belated Happy New Year! My New Year’s entry is on the December page, since I put Earl and my trip to Philadelphia all in one entry.

So now we start a new page. And I am as SICK as a dog. I have somehow contracted this nasty head cold, that feels like it’s one of those 24-48 hour deals. I know, I absolutely refuse to be sick, and that’s 99% of the case most of the time, but I just can’t seem to fight this one off. So I admit defeat, and I’m spending a lot of time in bed.

Last night we went to the new East Dynasty Buffet in New Hartford… very nice, not your typical Chinese buffet offering. This place was huge and had a very large selection of food. It was very good, at least what I could taste of it because my cold was starting to show it’s true colors.

I probably caught this cold standing outside during the Giants at Eagles game last weekend – but you know what, I don’t care, because the game was well worth it!

My friend Tim had a case built for one of my clock works from my elementary school, and that arrived Thursday. It’s very, very nice… I have it here in the computer room.

There it is on the webcam. It’s a reproduction of one of the clocks from my elementary school and is very nice. I’m very pleased with it. If you haven’t seen my clock page, take a peek here.

Now I’m going to go back to bed. I’ll write again tomorrow night when this cold blows over!
