Good afternoon, everyone, it's 1:06pm. I'm back with the blog for the time being, because of some good news. We have filed an appeal with SSI, which takes six months, and my benefits are ending in October. So I have at least another month to keep blogging. Anyway, I'm going to my Neighborhood Association meeting tonight at 7pm, so I'll be blogging until about 6 or 6:30. Then I'll return around 9, probably.
