I used the Posterous blogging platform and would cross-post to this blog as well as to other blogs. Posterous shut down earlier this year and I forgot that blogs (especially images contained in them) would no longer be viewable in the other blogs. That explains the empty placeholders appearing in this blog.

Flooding in Chicago

The Chicago area has received a TON of rain. My in-laws live in Des Plaines across from the Des Plaines River and the river has risen over the road in front of their house. The only way to navigate is by canoe!

Watching Season Two (Day Two) of "24". The Audience Network (Channel 239 on DirecTV) is showing the episodes. They ran Season One last Saturday and Season Two on Sunday which I recorded.

It's been several years since the show debuted and I had forgotten how good it was for the first few seasons. It's also interesting to see the actors who played minor roles in "24" who are starring in other series right now. The actress who plays Abby in "NCIS" had a minor role in Day One and the actor who plays Deeks in "NCIS Los Angeles" played George Mason's son in Day Two.
