I am taking a break from writing my encyclopedia article on Beria. I did not get started on it until today. I will probably finish it today since it is short. I have about half of it written as of now. Then I can write the final article all of which are due the 15th by e-mail.
At anyrate every so often birds will hurl themselves at my office windows and bounce off. I am on the second floor and the windows are not very clean. I guess the stupid birds do not expect there to be a building in the middle of nowhere. They make a loud thud when they hit the glass and then fall from my view. It has got to hurt.
