It rained here for just about 20 minutes, which is typical for Utah. Because we are on the second floor with what I think is a metal ventilation on the roof, the rain sounds loud even when it is just a sprinkle. The weather report is predicting intermittent rain for a few days. Most people here are glad to see the rain because they think that we need the water. I am hoping that it will wash all the allergens out of the air.

It is coming close to time for me to renew my US Chess Federation membership. I usually do it for 3 years at a time which saves a few dollars. Thirty five years ago I could have gotten a life membership for next to nothing in today's dollars, but now it seems a little late for that.
I find myself missing the magazine. I can read the magazine online, but I never bother. Part of me is thinking that if I spend the extra bucks to get the magazine that I will actually take the time to read it.
This is odd considering that everybody else in the world is moving toward e-readers.
