Ups and downs of the week.

 Red Sox – Still looking pretty good, although two tough losses to the Rays have us still 2 games back. 

  Hurricane Ike – This one is going to wreak havok on Galveston and then come up and smack us.

 Modern medicine – It really is miraculous how the doctors can spot developing problems and solve them before they become life threatening. 

  Cancer – It’s wrought havoc on my family in the past and has struck again. Luckily, modern medicine will most likely make this a mere inconvenience. See above.

  Formula One – Tight race this year. Best season in a long time.
