First weekend in the new place

Well, I finally have all my utilities connected, I know where most of my stuff is, and the cats aren't hiding under furniture all the time. I have quite the moving story to tell, but that will have to wait until after I go through my 300+ emails that have accumulated in the 6 days that I was offline. Most of it is spam, of course.

Before 10am today I was visited by three firemen who wanted to test my smoke alarm (hubba, hubba) and two Jehovah's Witnesses. I find that I've mellowed in my old age, as I actually listened to them prattle on for about 10 minutes. Plus, my snappy comeback mechanism seems to have reoriented itself. They kept talking about man this and God that and then asked me if I felt that man would ever be able to fix everything that was wrong in the world without God's intervention. I replied that maybe things would improve once woman took over. Hey, I made them laugh. In a good way.
