    My wife and daughter are away on a Girl Scout trip. So what do I do with the big house all to myself? Poker with the guys? Beer and cigars to watch college basketball? Drop in on the local strip club? Nope, nope, and nope.

    I got in a long workout on my stationary bike, watched a livestream of my son's college orchestra performing Carmina Burana, and got ready for bed early.

    Worst of all, I don't regret my choices one bit. Sigh.

    Sounds like a decent evening to me.

    Valentine's day at my house: I Fratelli Pizza, Nothing but Bundt Cakes Marble cake and watching Les Miserables CD on the tube. I worked kinda late and didn't want to wait/wedge myself into a nice restaurant. I like the music and get fresh insight every time I watch Le Mis.

    Are you a musician? Take up an instrument if you don't. That's one fun great way to entertain yourself. Plus it keeps the neurons firing. I never regret picking up some old LP bongos at an estate sale 15 years ago.
