The electrical work went well -- was back home about 9:00 on Sunday morning. I slept on and off all day trying to re-sync my speeing patterns; which was all for not as after I was just nodding off following a couple of cocktails at the Eagle I got a all from Rochester... on of the NStar servers had crashed and was not coming back up. Assuming the server was in Westwood (about 25 miles south-east from where I live), I drove there to restart it. Once getting there, I called back o Rochester, as I couldn't find the server -- to which they replied that it was at the Mass Ave site (a mere 5 minute drive from where I live!!) Back to the city I went. *sigh* Then the fiasco that followed when my security card wouldn't let me into the computer room (everywhere else though!!) I didn't get home until about 3:30am.

Today was Patriot's Day* and the Boston Marathon (Marathon Monday) -- what a sight to see! Just before the starting gun, two F-14s flew the length of the 26 mile route, the Sox played the Jays at Fenway Park, and the weather was just grand! Meanwhile, the battle of Lexington and Concord ("the shot heard round the world") was re-enacted on the other side of town!

* Per the website "www.holidayorigins.com", Patriot's Day commemorates the battle of Lexington and Concord which were fought on April 19, 1775. Part of the history of this famous revolutionary battle was the midnight ride of Paul Revere and William Dawes. The Sons of the American Revolution in Massachusetts were largely responsible for the official recognition of the event. Today only a few states recognize the holiday; however, its celebrations are known by many. Besides several reenactments of the famous midnight ride, there are other festivities including professional baseball games and the running of the Boston Marathon.
