09:07 – It was 67.1F (19.5C) when I took Colin out around 0645 this morning, mostly cloudy. Barbara is off to the gym this morning, and working on science kit stuff this afternoon. I’ll be spending some time on studying for the amateur radio exams, which I take this week.

As we were having an early lunch yesterday, Frances called to say they were about ten minutes out. We’ve told her and Al many times they don’t even need to call when they’re coming; just show up.

Al and Barbara spent most of the afternoon working out in the garden, while Frances and I worked on getting her signed up for Obamacare, to take effect July 1st. She’s also changed her mind about going into business for herself. I’d guess her job hunt has been disappointing. There just aren’t many good companies to work for, nor good jobs available with them.

So she’s going to start a business managing parties and similar events for people at their own homes or other venues. She used to manage events at the country club, and has lots of contacts among the CC set. Many of them host parties at their homes and need someone to manage that for them. Frances has a lot of experience doing that for companies, so it’s not a big step to start doing it on her own. I offered to help her get all the government paperwork completed, creating an LLC and so on. She’s already thinking about what her business card should include.

We went out for dinner at The Pines Restaurant and then they headed back home to Winston about 1830.
