Today’s Quote: “In Russia, reforms that were once promised to empower citizens have been derailed, with troubling implications for democratic development.” — President George W. Bush (Has he taken a look at the derailing of citizen empowerment under his administration and its implications for democratic development in the U.S.?)

Bonus Quote: “The treatment consisted of ibuprofen for one week, as well as complete abstinence from playing Wii video games. The patient recovered fully.” — Dr. Julio Bonis talks about his recovery from a mysteriously sore shoulder that later turned out to be “Wiiitis.”

The siding is back up on the south end of the house. Hopefully, Liquid Nails and staples will work where screws and roofing tacks have failed. I’m not totally confident that it will stay in place considering how many times I’ve put it up. What gets me is that it never goes up the same way twice. I always have to trim a few pieces or cut some off. I don’t get it. Is the house getting bits of Alice’s magic mushrooms? If it comes off again, I’m recommending we cover that side with plywood and paint it to look like siding. Actually, if we covered it with plywood, we’d have something solid to nail new siding to. (And for my readers who are sticklers for proper grammar: “Actually, if we covered the gable with plywood, we would have a solid surface on which to nail the siding.”)
