Worth celebrating, especially since I've now outlived the average guy in Medieval England, eh? :)
In entertainment news, thanks to bradtastic, I have developed a full-blown addiction to House, M.D. which premiers its third season tonight.
One of my favorite quotes from the pilot rings with particular resonance for whatever reason
Rebecca Adler: I just want to die with a little dignity.
Dr. House: There's no such thing! Our bodies break down, sometimes when we're 90, sometimes before we're even born, but it always happens and there's never any dignity in it. I don't care if you can walk, see, wipe your own ass. It's always ugly - always! We can live with dignity - we can't die with it.
Tomorrow, I will be going to Gilroy, CA to meet with the good folks at the Search Dog Foundation (where I volunteer) and watch them showcase the newest 'graduates' of their search-and-rescue dog training program.
Until then ...
