On my way home from work today, I saw an accident at a railroad crossing. No trains were involved, but an SUV went airborne (literally), flipped onto the roof, and came to rest on a pickup truck's hood. Not what I'd call a nice commute home.

Photos are on flickr, as well as the full story. Start HERE to see the story.

I'm available, apparently.

So... umm... most people haven't seen this yet, and most don't likely bother to seek out such news stories. But this one is kinda scary that it affects me directly.

If you haven't clicked on the link yet, do so now.

Clicked yet? Okay. Now remember where I work? Okay.

Janine went to the library last week. She hadn't gone since we'd moved to Grayslake, so she felt it was about time to visit and peruse the stacks. When she returned, among her purchases was a book about sheep. Specifically, a book on how to live with and raise sheep.

Yes. A flock of sheep.

Now, I know she's deeply involved with her knitting... but this is going a bit too far.
