This has been a very productive week.  Motoring along with my revised outline of Never, getting a fair amount of reading done, and exercise accomplished every day but one (and that was because of a fairly severe storm, and my laziness that made me not want to do anything inside the house.  Must get hold of some weights so I have options on rainy days).
