I was supposed to be taking my first walk in the halls of Kootenai Mememorial Hospital today, following a major surgery scheduled for Sept. 27th, to fix my spine. Instead, a nasty head cold caught me unawares on Sunday, so the surgery is rescheduled for Nov. 23rd, just in time to let me enjoy the culinary efforts of the hospital cooks on Thanksgiving Day -- which is also my birthday!

For those on my "Access The World and Write Your Way to $$$" student roster, as soon as my laptop returns from being serviced I'll be sending weekly chapters again, until I go to surgery. Thanks for your patience.

Missing Rockford website demonstation

Following my disappointment at not finding the demonstration of Rockford's town website at SESCC Fair last month, I touched bases with Joshua Grandinetti, who explained, "I've just been way too busy ..."

I really wasn't surprised, and I should have realized as Freeman School's band assembled to march in the parade that Josh would be playing trumpet! Also, he volunteered in the performing arts booth, which featured a constant stream of changing acts throughout both days.

He really didn't need to say, "I'm sorry ... unfortunately I didn't have any time to put it together." But being the dedicated guy he is, he apologized.

Kudos to Josh and Andy for keeping the website current, despite their busy schedules.
