First words:

I had a small basal cell carcinoma on my lower left eyelid
that was removed this past Monday and another surgeon
reconstructed my eyelid the following day. I was worried
that I'd have to wear an eyepatch for a week or more but
that wasn't the case. I was permitted to remove it the
following (Wednesday) morning; I've got a 'shiner' but it's
healing fast. The toughest thing so far is being unable to
do any work for the next few days (doctor's orders) but ok
I can manage that (if just barely). Good thing I've got a
list of 'light duty' chores (like this ezine) to keep me
busy for the next few days.

Here we go...

The research vessel RRS Sir David Attenborough was very nearly
named 'Boaty McBoatface' when it was the most popular
suggestion in the #NameOurShip poll but good sense prevailed
and the name was instead given to one of the vessel's 
autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

We opted to get rid of our TV set a few years back and so
far we've also avoided streaming TV programming online but
it's just gotten harder to do. I'm still avoiding it but
this sure is tempting for me.

As recently as five years ago telecommuting jobs (where you
sit at home and work from your computer) were unusual and
difficult to find. I think that is changing now.
