  1. Ideograph — after consulting the web I find that logograph is the better description of what I’m thankful for.

    Square wave, sine wave, sawtooth, etc — all forms of wave that make digital and analog electronics controllable and useful, and crank out fat, mean bass and synth sounds for techno… and I love to dance. There are two canadian DJ’s from my Toronto days coming to Gaoxiong this weekend (a couple of hours south) and I’m itching to go, but my Sunday soccer match and Dave’s visit from China have curtailed that possibility, sadly. Next time, next time.

  2. Now WHO is snotty-smart??? Most of us are just thankful for….. the sun, the rain, and the appleseed…..oh the Lord is good to me!
