Still feeling lousy but ...

... appreciative of the cold relief suggestions.

Drainage from my sinuses is starting to settle in the back of my throat, where it will be very hard to get rid of. I woke up this morning and thought I was going to turn my lungs inside out. I've been wishing for cooler weather for a long time, and now the cooler mornings are making my cold worse. (The few extra dings I got from aikido last night didn't help either.) Looks like I'm in for a long weekend. But at least now I have a shopping list to keep me focused.

I expect to feel better Monday. Meanwhile, thank you all again for your suggestions. What a great bunch! I'd like to give all you ladies big hugs and kisses (when I'm not contagious, of course).

Well if you've entered the snot-monster stage at least it's progressing. Have a restful weekend and concentrate on getting well Sweetie. Be gentle with yourself. Let the g/f pamper you.

I'd kiss you even if you were contagious.

Hello...This post is to remind you about the Blogger's Convention scheduled October 21,22,23 and set for the ChicagoLand area(Bolingbrook--a suburb)

It is a chance for you to meet the folk that you have been reading, commenting, and chatting with. Before we go any further, this is NOT a giant sex orgy but a chance to interact with your new found blogging friends face-to-face.

The opening night festivities are still in the planning stage.(I need to have an actual head count on that before I can proceed and make commitments to the banquet facility. But in the plans are a Masked Ball--expected to be a lavish formal affair)

The 46 Zone Party will be held on the evening of the 22nd at the 46 Zone bar attached to the Ditka Dome(enclosed sports dome facility with an indoor driving range) Typically the bar has a live band on Saturday nights (no cover charge to date) The food and drink costs there are reasonable and one can imbibe for about twenty bucks.

There will be an "after" party on the 21st after the Masked Ball; and a "before" and "after" party on the 22nd in the hospitality suite at the hotel to continue on with the festivities. These parties will have food and alcohol/soft beverages and will be bought in bottle form with appetizer platters from local stores. The bar in the hospitality suite would be a serve yourself type of set-up.

The hotel is new and nicely furnished. Complimentary breakfasts are included with the room; the hotel has a pool, workout facility, complimentary wi-fi service, in-room coffee makers, mini refrigerators, iron & ironing board, and laptrays to support your laptops. There is a complimentary coffee bar located off the lobby area which is available 24 hours for a selection of coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. Hotel rates are reasonable and information can be found at Convention Information Pictures of the hotel and its rooms are also available for you to see.

In the works is a photo session opportunity as well as some classes/demos.

If you have not already done so, you are also invited to join bloggers of this friendly site The group was designed to address the technical aspects of blogging, but has metamorphosized into something much more--a "family" of bloggers...many of who will be attending the upcoming Convention.

Thank you for your time and I hope to meet you in person.

Thanks for the notice, playful. I always love a reason to go to the Chicago area, but unfortunately, I won't be able to make it. I'll be there in spirit, though. And thanks for the reminder about the "Bloggers" group. I think about joining but then keep forgetting. This is the reminder I need.
