More little notes.

A. It continues to be warm and the buds are leaving. Leafing?
B. Our family started Christmas vacation by watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last night. Great movie and so much better than the version from the 70s with Richard Pryor.
C. I was reading some biking blogs (Oil is for Sissies, Three Speed Blog), and it inspired me to calculate that I commute about 2200 miles per year on my bike-- plus about 19000 miles per year on the train. Actually our unusually warm weather has made it easier to bike to work, so that's something, plus we're spending less to heat the house.

Richard Pryor wasn't in Charlie and the Chocolate factory, though that would have been an interesting movie. Are you thinking of Gene Wilder?

Gene Wilder. I like the old one better.

I see those two as one comical unit and use their names interchangeably.
