I have been a little MIA recently. Part of the reason for that is due to the fact that my doctor put me on a new medicine which makes me drowsy. Then because of nerves or something I had a very bad stomach ache on Monday and Tuesday. On Tuesday I took the Amtrak train for the first time so I was a bit nervous about how that was going to turnout. Right now I am visiting my parents over Thanksgiving and will be home next week. It has been so good to be able to see my parents and get away from my place for s bit. Some of the trivia were questions and some was information that I passed along.
