With apologies to Dave Edmunds, work can be fun when you have a great crew like mine:
"Me and my buddies just like to go We're having fun. Everybody knows. We don't fuss and we never cry. We're just grooving, taking in the sights. Me and the boys. Just me and the boys. Me and the boys."
BTW, this was the *only* break we took allllllllll day. I'm a slavedriver, so they tell me. ;-)

...just in time for class beginning tomorrow morning!! (I'm itching to get back at it.) Listen to me, lol..... "office". 8-| How highfalutin' do I sound? How about "original 1920's parlor formerly used as a heavily curtained bedroom now returned to its original sunlit glory and quickly filling with computer and various other electronic equipment removed from the living room." Okay. "Office".

Next is trying to move in an approximately three ton file cabinet and trying to figure out what to do with those dumb little speakers all over the desktop. At least the big one can hide behind the desk.

Liechtenstein: no retaliation for Swiss invasion | The Guardian | Guardian Unlimited
Swiss soldiers accidentally crossed into neighbouring Liechtenstein above yesterday. The Swiss army is not renowned for its aggressive expeditionary adventures - but it does appear to have accidentally invaded Liechtenstein. According to the Swiss daily Blick, around 170 infantry soldiers from the famously neutral country wandered more than a mile across the unmarked border with the tiny principality. The incident happened yesterday morning and the Swiss troops turned back - probably slightly sheepishly - after they realised their mistake.
Oooops. So much for that famous neutrality. I think I hear what may be the WORST butt-chewing in the world going on right about now. Makes you wonder if Switzerland will be denounced in the UN? After all, they were carrying WMD on their foray into tiny Liechtenstein.
As well as the obligatory Swiss army knives, the troops were armed with assault rifles - however, they had no ammunition, Mr Reist said. Markus Amman, an interior ministry spokesman, said nobody in Liechtenstein had even noticed the soldiers. "Its not like they stormed over here with attack helicopters or something," he said.
