We also lost one of our 19 year-old cats late last week. He went down hill very fast but died peacefully here at home. We called the vet just that morning to get an appointment in the afternoon to put him to sleep but he didn't last that long. His littermate brother is going strong as is our other cat who is 15.
Easter Sunday was very nice. We had dinner at my brother's house with his family, and my sister and her partner. We came home with enough left overs to carry us through half this week. Nice to see everyone.
The long awaited release of Apple's iPad has come and gone. Evidently most people are happy with it. I am still amazed by the social events this kind of thing can become. People camped out at the Apple Store in Chicago for several days to get their hands on the thing. I am a wait and see kind of person. And I will wait until I have an actual need for something like it before I even think about buying one. Right now, with a new macbook, I don't see any need in the foreseeable future.
