I admit, I was impressed. The concert this afternoon/evening was really good. Cliff Richards playing with 7 Club Seven? Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker, Tom Jones, Elton John, Bryan Adams, Ben Elton, Kermit the Frog, Lenny Henry, the Corrs, Annie Lennox - I can't even remember them all. Even if you don't like any given artist, it's hard not to be impressed by the sheer scale of it all.

And the fireworks afterwards were spectacular: Buckingham Palace spilling over with fireworks. I like spectacles as long as they're positive, regardless of who commissions them or in whose honor their held. That's one good thing to be said for monarchies: they can be the source of some pretty good spectacles.

I'm pleased with today. The mush errands were successfully accomplished this morning, and took up much less time than they often would. My database looks pretty now (interface-wise) and is much more useful. Still need to do some more search-type-experiments to determine if it really is the software for me. The concert was good, I successfully watched it WHILE getting work done, I tried a lovely new mushroom-and-alcohol pasta sauce for dinner and have a guest coming over for tomorrow night. All in all, a successful day.
