I didn't sell any more readings on eBay. The trouble is page views. I didn't get any, except from people I brought to the site myself. Ebay's search engine is still broken, returning page after page of mass market junk instead of posts from real people. At least I found out what I needed to know — which is that EBay adds no value at all. They just take a too large cut for providing exactly nothing.

Got a haircut. Got my first IPL Photo Facial treatment. I bought a package of three through Groupon, and then I can just pay the price for the other two treatments. It will come in at less than half the price I was quoted by the other doctor.

I spent my $50 in Amex gift cards wisely, on wine and foofy cheese.

A man from RTH makes rosaries, and he sent me one that he made with orange Swarovski crystals. Really out of the blue, but a super-sweet gesture. I thought a moment and realized that it would go perfectly in the small petrified wood box I made last year.

Rain, rain, rain. The Brown-Headed Cowbirds have departed, and I can put out seed again. The fresh set-up was investigated by a Song Sparrow and a male Red-Bellied Woodpecker.

By the way, some guy in casual clothes was walking down Hwy 22 carrying a shotgun yesterday in the drizzle. I guess he was supposed to be there, since it's Mandeville, and no one seemed much alarmed. Nutria? Or maybe everyone else thought, as I did, that it's one for the somebody else's problem file.
