Work was pretty good today. No major surprises.
On the way home, I almost forget that it is CSA day, and I get back on the highway for another exit to get to the shop to pickup my farm share.
This day in history "A factory storekeeper in the Nzara township of Sudan becomes ill on this day in 1976. Five days later, he dies, and the world's first recorded Ebola virus epidemic begins making its way through the area. By the time the epidemic is over, 284 cases are reported, with about half of the victims dying from the disease.
Symptoms of Ebola hemorrhagic fever generally begin about four to 15 days after a person is infected with the virus. The average victim will first notice flu-like symptoms, such as a high fever, aching and general weakness. Usually this is followed by diarrhea, vomiting and the eruption of rashes all over the body. Then the person may begin bleeding from any and all body orifices and internal organ damage begins. Within seven to 10 days, exhaustion, dehydration and shock set in."
A quick shrimp scampi and shrimp cocktail for dinner. I am to full to run, and have a soccer meeting at 730pm.
I drop Luke off at a friend and then get a call from work. After 10 minutes on the side of the road, I set the GPS and I am on my way to Commack.
About 5 minutes into the ride, the GPS loses signal. Starts to go in out of signal, and then has me like a hundred feet off of the highway. I try to power off and on....Doh ! Now I have nothing and cant even get the driving directions.
I resort to using my iPhone to get a map and at least direction to my destination. I need to mess with it more to get turn by turn navigation.
I get to the meeting 15 minutes late, and am not the last to arrive. Turns out the coach is late and stopped at home or a shower. Meeting starts around 815. I stay till about 945 and then go to pick up Luke on the way home.
A long day, good thing I have my fruits and veggies.

P.S. I am donating the Kale to George at work. Cut up the cukes to make my own pickles. Ate a carrot while cooking dinner, and snacked on some of the best blueberries on the planet.
