It's raining today! That may not seem remarkable to you, but it hasn't rained here since Fay came through and dropped about 17 inches of rain on us. That was back in August. No rain in September.
I cannot tell you how wonderful the air feels, how cool the breeze, how lulling the sound of rain on my roof. I have missed the rain.
In other news, I got an interesting comment on my blog post Satisfaction. This fellow named Herb invited me to take part in some marketing research for Subaru. After checking it out, I went and signed up for it. They will pay me for my participation, but I will earn it. I have five assignments - things to write and pictures to post in blog posts on their private intranet.
I'm assuming that the marketing gurus will have a look at all of our posts there and come up with some kind of plan for selling more Subarus. Actually, it's amazing to me that it's not a more popular set of cars. Their vehicles are wonderful, but Toyota and Hyundai and the struggling American manufacturers have made up the bulk of the advertising and most of the sales.

Now if I could only come up with a story idea...
