I think we could all use a boost

The last week or so has been a real doozy, hasn't it? On top of everything else, apparently there is extensive damage at my Houston property due to Hurricane Ike: downed trees, blown-down carports, roof leaks, soaked carpets (with potential for mold), you get the idea. Of course, the main thing is that all the residents appear to be safe, but this is n0t good.

Then of course the turmoil in the financial markets. I am keeping the good thoughts for all my Merrill Lynch and Lehman friends. Hang in there, it will be OK.

For those who would like to start the week off with a countermeasure to all the junk raining down on us, I've always found that Mozart helps. Watch this lovely rendition of Soave sia il vento from Cosi fan tutte. I would also recommend "You are the New Day," sung here by The King's Singers. "Hope is my philosophy."
