      Jeez, good luck. And now your priority is those two lads of yours. May I humbly suggest getting a couple of copies of "Putting the children first - a handbook for separated Parents" by Karen and Nick Woodall. I highly recommend it.

  13. all this cloud is really getting on my wick now

    1. ronin


      Everytime there is a major meteor shower I find there is continuous cloud cover from the start to the end. Sure enough this cloud started about 7th and is still there. So the Geminids will be over but the time it clears.
