Branching out...

Oops! I've broken what I think may be a cardinal rule of blogging - BLOG OFTEN! Anyway, I completed my first week at a branch library. The customers are very nice and my new co-workers are also very nice. This will be a good learning experience for me. There are also plenty of places to go grocery shopping on the way home: Chavez Supermarket, Grocery Outlet, and Smart and Final.

One reason I'm annoyed with American News Shows

I spent a half an hour perusing the web with a news show on in the background. There was a lot of good Olympics coverage, as well as a few other stories. Nothing about the conflict between Georgia and Russia. What's with that?
