You know how a tune can get stuck in your head.
And you know how, when you are drifting awake and half dreaming that things can get a bit off.

Well, this is the tune that was stuck in my head at 5 am.

Wednesday the Eighth I am, I am.
Wednesday the Eighth I am.
I always follow the day next door,
That's Tuesday the Seventh you can be sure.
And every week has a Wednesday.
Every month has an Eighth like I am.
I'm the Eighth of this month and I'm a Wednesday.
Wednesday the Eighth I am.

I've actually been using it for quite awhile.  Just upgraded to their latest version.

The Very Large Array (a radio telescope in New Mexico) needs a new name:
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/10/17/vla_needs_a_new_name/

They are beefing up the computers, and adding 10 more dishes.
Just the computers will expand its frequency range by a factor of 80 and its resolution by a factor of 1500.
They think it needs a new name because of its expanded capabilities.
They were first going to use Expanded Very Large Array.
They decided perhaps it needs a better name with more pizazz (and to attract better funding down the road).

So, until December 1st, 2011, they are taking suggestions, and will select one by January 10th, 2012.

Back from vacation. Frisbee Golf in Estes Park, Colorado. River rafting in Steamboat Springs. Hiked to the top of "Chisholm Trail" (at the Steamboat Ski Area) and spouted poetry (http://www.ctc.volant.org/home/jesse/poems/19970712_v2.html) to the tourists there before jogging back down.

Saw this lovely tag line:

"if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck", it could be a dragon doing a duck impersonation.
