08:05 – They finally transferred Barbara’s mom from the emergency room to a regular room late yesterday. Sankie is doing, if not well, at least better than she had been. Frances stayed with her through the evening. Barbara is stopping on the way home from work to see Sankie. Frances stopped by Homestead Hills to put down a deposit to get Sankie in their queue, but we’re hoping that she’ll recover sufficiently that she’ll be able to return to her apartment at Creekside once she’s released from the hospital.

I boxed up another batch of biology kits yesterday. February and March are by far our slowest months, so for now we’re in good shape on finished-goods inventory of all kits. Not that we’ll rest on our laurels, because things will start ramping up again in April and by July we’ll be shipping kits faster than we can build them. That means we have to have a reasonable inventory built up by then, which means getting the labor-intensive stuff like labeling and filling bottles out of the way while things are slow.


10:19 – Last May, I commented that, other than the 15 year difference in ages, Michelle Burke (Little Men) and Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) could be not just sisters, but identical twins. Well, with Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) that doppelgänger is now a dreifachgänger. They could be identical triplets. In fact, when I first saw Minka Kelley, I thought she *was* Leighton Meester. So much for eyewitness identifications.
