The Big Annoucement

I am pleased to annouce that my wife and I are expecting, and have been for some time, our first child. Marsha getting into her new if temporary role as a "pregasaurus" (it's a long story) and I'm learning too! The due date is May 4th, which happens to be my father's birthday.
Don't get me these for Christmas!

I recently found a fine recent book, and the first I've seen stateside, of Pictures from New Zealand. Browsing it makes me long again, almost with wincing, for that far away country in the utter South where West becomes East.

Amarantine has some interesting tracks. It proves that Enya is more or less a constant, even after the events of the last few years. Tracks 1, 5, and 7 stand out especially. Still listening really. After her LoTR:FotR tracks, I was hoping for another "Caribbean Blue" or "Cursum Perficio." Ya know what I mean?
