The Red Sox win again! 10 in a row now. Pedro beat John "Way Back" Wasdin of the Rangers in a 2-0 pitchers duel that was much closer than it had any right to be, given how hot the Sox offense has been and how mediocre Wasdin is. Combine that with the Yankees 3-1 loss to the Orioles tonight and the Sox are only 2 and 1/2 games back in the East!

The cable guy came to install the Tivo box yesterday. It's very cool. I haven't had a huge amount of time to play with it, but I like the Instant Replay feature (rewind 15 seconds of live TV to see something you missed) and the ability to pause a live show an pick it up later. It seems really easy to program. One of my big problems with a VCR is that if I don't watch a show right after I tape it, I forget which tape it's on, or tape over it. Tivo should eliminate that problem.

R.'s first day of Kindergarten went really well. She was just bubbling at me when I spoke to her after school yesterday. She's very disappointed that they don't have school on Saturdays and that she has to wait all the way until Tuesday to go back! J. seems to be getting off to a good start, too. Most of the kids in his class are different from last year's, but he knows a lot of the kids who were in half-day Kindergarten last year from recess and joint activities and such.

The Hillies play tomorrow in the rubber match with the Hartford Senators at Wahconah. The whole family is going this time, and everyone seems excited about it. I'll post a full report over the weekend.

Last, and certainly not least, my thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is facing down Hurricane Frances in Florida, in particular my brother and his family and some good friends I have living down there. The good news seems to be that, at this point, the storm has been downgraded to a category 2 hurricane from category 4 over the last couple of days. While the storm is certainly still dangerous, 105 MPH winds sound easier to take than 145 MPH winds.
