but my phone isn't working.  If you need me, email me or, I suppose, leave a message.   I'll check my messages.

OK, folks.  I need a database.  I've been avoiding this for years and it's TIME.  I need to keep track of the people who appear in my dissertation, or may later appear in my dissertation.  It needs to be easy to add and change fields.  It needs to deal well with numbers and also with approximate numbers, date ranges and guesstimates.  It needs to do cross-referencing, so I can also have entries for places.  It needs to deal well with alternate spellings.  I'm not a computer idiot, but neither am I interested in spending a lot of time trying to figure things out, so the help program needs to be, well, helpful.  (Not, for example, like the help program for Excel which you need an advanced degree to understand).  I also need to know someone who uses it who will be willing to help me occasionally.  I'm broke, so it can't be too expensive.

Any ideas?

Anyone have a good software review site to recommend? I'm going to try to recover some of the photos I lost with one of these download file recovery programs and need to pick one.

Any help accepted ...

In case any of you are Dante lovers, there will be a reading of selections from Dante's Comedy, at St. Augustine's Church, 6th Avenue and Sterling Place, Brooklyn, on Sunday May 6, starting at 4:00pm.

"Readings will be in Italian and in translation, there will also be musical interludes by early music players who will perform pieces from Dante's milieu and some contemporary music as well, and many of the readers are poets themselves."

You know, just in case.

I walked out of my apartment this evening and I thought:

It's spring. And I live in Brooklyn.

I am very, very, very, lucky.

Anyone know how his album "Fight for your mind" got on my harddrive and into my itunes?

Not complaining, just curious.

It has been a surprisingly good day, in my apartment, grappling with my chapter, napping, watching tv, listening to NPR, getting food delivered, watching the snow, sleet, rain, perhaps even hail fall outside. Haven't talked to anyone all day, except the Keyspan guy and my neighbor going to do her laundry. And, on top of it being a good day, I can breathe again, so the strategy may be working. We'll see tomorrow.

My garden is beautiful in the snow.

Just went to the grocery store for milk, oj and cereal. Think I might not leave again today. It's not pleasant out. Just going to hole up at home and work on my chapter.

I tend to come home, crawl into bed, and not get out for 2 hours. So much for a productive day.

Cause all my plastic bags are neatly tucked in the bottom of the closet and the dustpan is propped up against them.
