It's January 1. Happy New Year!
January is named after Janus, the Roman god of gateways and doors. He has two heads, that look in opposite directions: one head looks back on 2009, and the other head looks forward to 2010. It's a fitting name for the first month of the year.
Things I Did For New Year's:
∙I created a new Word file for my Journal, which was getting unwieldy.
∙I created folder #09 for the next three months of my Camera Pictures folder.
∙I opened my Amazing Trivia Facts Page-A-Day 2010 Calendar. (There are 250 million bubbles in the average champagne bottle.)
∙I opened my Fractal Universe 2010 Calendar.
∙I fixed my sofa cover, which was sagging.
∙I began a plan to reorganize my hard drive, into something more intuitive.
∙I wrote this first post in my blog, which had existed, postless, for quite some time.
Since we're on the subject of time, here is a picture of my cuckoo clock.
It's mechanical (all moving parts, no electricity) and old-fashioned - just my kind of clock. Although my atomic clock is the complete opposite end of the spectrum, and that's my kind of clock too.
I guess my taste in timepieces says a lot about me.
I hope to post something here at least once a week. Although I might post more often during this winter break when I have far less to do.
