Today: Windy and showery turning to cloudy, high around 70.
Every time I go back to my parents house, it feels less and less like home.

Tonight: A little cloudy with a low near 50.
And my parents don’t like it that the phrase “going home” has started
to mean “going back to Swat.”

Tomorrow: Scattered showers, high int he 50s and low in the 40s.
Or that I can’t remember that my dishes don’t just disappear on a tray to be
magically washed.


Lunch: BBQ chicken sandwich, cottage fries, ratatouille, pierogies, brussels
sprouts, corn on the cob, chef salad bar, cupcakes

Dinner: Roast round top of beef, red bliss potatoes, chick peas sautee, Greek

1) World news roundup

* While at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Bangkok on Monday,
President Bush presented China with a plan for North Korean security. The plan
would give a five-nation security guarantee to North Korea if the country agrees
to dismantle all of its nuclear weapons programs. However the plan does not
represent a formal nonaggression treaty.

* Both General Wesley Clark and Senator Joseph Lieberman have decied to skip
the Iowa caucus, hoping instead to concentrate their candidacies for the Democratic
presidential nomination on primaries in other states. Clark’s advisers pointed
to his late entry into the race as a reason why they felt he would not be fully
prepared for the first primary of the season, while there were worries that
Lieberman’s moderate views would be problematic in a traditionally liberal primary.
Many analysts believe that the exits of these two candidates leave Representative
Richard Gephardt and former Gov. Howard Dean as the top contenders in Iowa.

* Pope John Paul II beatified Mother Teresa in St. Peter’s Square in Rome on
Sunday before a crowd of around 300,000 people. Calling her an “icon of
the Good Samaritan”, the Pope declared her one step closer to sainthood.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner was being recognized for, in what many believe
to be a miracle, curing an Indian women of cancer.

“For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult
of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which
all other work is but preparation.”
–Rainer Maria Rilke
