My mind is working like a taffy machine in some silly town as my schemes drift from the MOGmobile to my chocolate fantasy to my burgeoning baseball buddy (Leo) and back. I have been gobbling more chocolate than ever before, drawing pictures and making models of the MOGmobile components, and playing baseball with my kids on the grassy school yard at the end of our block. On top of it all, it has been a beautiful Springtime here in Portland. I hope I didn't jinx it. Has there been any research into the potential jinx effect of blog content? If the jinx effect is valid, can it be manipulated or tricked? I better turn the old taffy machine off now.
