Will Smith calls it "the invention of the century", and I'm inclined to agree.  Since I bought my 15GB iPod in May, I've come to look at and listen to music in a whole new way.  I currently have about 2,300 songs loaded, and there's room for plenty more.  For a music nut like me, this thing is Nirvana.  (Oh yeah...I've got some of their stuff on it, too.)

I have found the best catfish in Atlanta.  It is at Mouth of the South, located in Roswell on Mansell Road at Highway 9.  The owners are originally from Louisiana, but their methods of preparation more than satisfy any Southern-bred catfish lover.  The crawfish tails appetizer makes me yearn for humidity and lagniappe.  The place is wonderful!
This comfortable little restaurant has the makings of a Southern Ippolito's.  I say this because, at one point in time, Karen and I visited Ippolito's and felt that the marinara was out of this world.  But back then, Ippolito's was this little unknown place in a Roswell strip shopping center. My, how times have changed!

I have overcome my fear of installing ceiling fans.  This may not sound like much to you, but in the twenty-two years that I've been a homeowner, only two tasks have truly daunted me to the point that I would not pursue them: 1) installing a garage door opener, and 2) installing a ceiling fan.  Having installed three rotating ceiling devices (I hesitate to call them by their real names) in the last two weeks, I feel that I have now been able to meet my problem head on and will not need further therapy.
Of course, the garage door opener is now starting to make a grinding noise.
