Back in SoPas

I'm back home. I was happy to see the girls. Michele was tired. That's what 48 hours of non-stop girls will do to you.

It is book fair week at Zoe's school, so I read two of the new books to the girls before dinner. We've been reading stories like Cinderella and Rapunzel and so the girls want to pretend to be the heroine. They insist that we 'be mean' and order them around. I tell them to go scrub the floor, and they pretend to scrub the floor, giggling all the time.

Michele insisted in making dinner and refused to let me pick something up. I'm sure she was concerned with my eating habits in Vegas, because tonight's dinner had lots of spinach in it. Michele believes that spinach will heal all that ails a person. The meatloaf she made was good and I was happy to dinner at a table where I could hear no bells ringing.

A bit later I turned on my computer and found I had 222 emails waiting for me. I was gone around 56 hours without checking email. Thanks to Spamassassin Pro 143 spam emails were automatically placed in my Junk Email folder. Only 4 spam emails survived the filtering and were still in my inbox. SpamAssassin missed less than 3% of the spam and didn't make mistakes with false positives. Buying that software is money well spent.

For those that are truly voyeuristic, the remaining 79 emails consisted of 57 Delt mailing list emails, 3 geocaching emails, and 19 miscellaneous emails.

I have a bunch of photos from the trip, but I don't have the energy to write them all up now. You'll have to do with this for now:

Martell, MSN Butterfly #1, Me, MSN Butterfly #2
