Ups and downs of the week.

 Celtics – Ok, I’m a bit late on this one. But we were traveling last week.

  Red Sox – Looking pretty good lately. I’m hoping for a sweep of Houston, but I’ll settle for winning the series.

  Gas prices – I still think we’re being robbed blind. Time will tell, though.

 Gas prices – The silver lining was the absence of the normal summertime traffic madness. We encountered no heavy traffic at all in almost 2,000 miles of driving the past two weeks. 

  Weather – These heavy rain producing thunderstorms are wreaking havoc with the levees and the farm fields. Food prices are skyrocketing because of the fuel prices. Now this rain is really going to hurt crop production, which will only make the food price crisis worse.

 Garmin Nuvi 660 – Ok, this is a repeat. But it is a very cool toy.
