  To-Do Letter.
Let me make this a to-do letter. I spent most of this afternoon clearing out my rats nest. See enclosed blog post.

In doing so I found a couple things I had clipped to share with you. Of course to share is not entirely accurate since each article prompts me to ask you to check something out for me. There is no rush. When you feel motivated pick one of the following and that will be fine with me.

"In Unexpected Medicare Benefit, U.S. Will Offer Doctors Free Electronic Records System" This is the article I had previously mentioned. I am also including one of those how they work articles on the Flash Drive.

Special features available on Yahoo and Google. Could you check out Goggle Scholar and see if you could find the Ph.D. thesis for Susan Westinghouse? I do not know if any of the other features would be of interest.

Going to School by Way of the Net. Could you see what the MIT site looks like? I would be interested in some math and programming classes. Could you see if this is something you might be able to print out for me or would it be too much work? Please do not spend too much time on it. Feel free to let me know that it is not practical for you to print out the stuff. I am thinking maybe can use the only the course outlines and find the books they recommend.

Enclosed is the article that I would appreciate you copying.

Well that is all the to-do stuff for now. Will work on some additional post, and I did find all your letters, so I will work on answers to them too. I received a letter from Calulu today. I had written her about five weeks ago. She said she owed me a 'huge apology'. I thought she had given out up writing to me. Go figure. Hurricane Katrina apparently wiped out the homes of her extended family and friends. She did not mention the town in the letter. I have not read all her blog pages yet.

It is now 3:45 and this has not been one of the most efficient times for typing. My fingers are just not doing what they are supposed to do! Not sure exactly what the problem is.

Let me see if Bill wants to share anything he got in his package from his visit yesterday. We (Bill and I) are weaning Tommy off from expecting to be included in all the meals. He is now getting close to $20.00 a commissary from his job, and is not asking if he could kick in more than the one box of rice.

Okay, I am beck. I did my random act of kindness. Went through the chow line and gave Tom the meatballs. Bill and I are cooking pasta, cream of mushroom soup, and a can of chicken. Hmm I might try to add that other pack of parmesan cheese. Stay tuned for updates.

It is now 7:44 PM and I have just finished printing out all the pages that have been entered in the memory. I am enclosing a post that I am not sure if I ever sent. It was sitting in the memory and I do not see any draft copy of it.

I need to call it a night on the typing now; I can not pay any attention anyhow. Looks like I will be up writing another penpal letter. I will pay for it tomorrow, but I need to devote some serious time to getting stuff to you for the blog. I am really going to have to learn to balance my time.

I have at least spent the last few hours finishing what I started with this letter.

I need to start cooking, but am going to try and jump in the shower.

I read five Times yesterday and received Friday and Saturday today. I am going to read Friday tonight, do or die. I will need to keep at least one paper of what I receive each day out of the locker. This way if I read at least one a day, I will not increase the backlog, and then if I bang out a bunch in one day, I will really see a difference.

Guess I will be getting a Friday letter from you this week? Or are you going to stretch it to the end of the week so that I will not get it till next Monday?

Whatever you can manage is okay with me. Thanks for all the work.
Please check out my Ex-Offender Blog and you can add me to your list of sites for your readers.

I will do the same for you if you would like. I think you will find my site interesting.
