Saturday Phone Post

Yesterday, after I posted, I couldn’t leave comments. Blogger problem.

Got LT back yesterday and he seems ok. He still has his nuts. I thought they chopped them off.
I was planning on sleeping late this morning but Sheba had other plans. 7:30 is pretty late anyway.
I’m reading The Hunger Games series. I’m half way through the third book. So far it has been very good. My wife says the third book gets kinda drawn out, but I plan on burning through.
Still getting used to the keyboard on the new phone. It seems more accurate if you type as fast as you can instead of slow and careful.
Thats it for today. Have a good weekend!

Test Post

This is a test post from my phone. Not too bad.
Yesterday I went diving and today I am too.
We have a new cat, LT (Long Tail), he’s going to the vet today to get “fixed”. I feel like such a betrayer. But he’s been hanging out, picking fights, and spraying smelly cat spray in our cats area. He is very friendly and loves to be held and petted. I hope the other cats see how much he likes it and want some too. They still barely let us touch them.
Tonight he’ll be home and it will all be behind us. I easily put him in the kennel yesterday and he’s going to the vet this morning…
It doesn’ t feel like Friday. I don’t know what day it feels like, but not Friday.
Let the weekend begin!
Oh yeah, the pic is uploaded from my phone, part of the test.

bald eagle, a fox and cats

A bald eagle, a fox and cats on a porch in Alaska appears to be a regular happening at a woman’s home in the Aleutian Islands:

See how the fox, eagle and cat are all just fine hanging out and no one is trying to attack anyone and they are getting along just fine? Notice the eagle in the background on the lamp post down by the street. That is the partner to this eagle. They aren’t always out to attack and kill each other. Our fox and eagles and cats basically get along just fine here. Sometimes if there is food they might fight over the food some.

I copied this post from Neatorama.

I especially like the fox!

TV Show “Bones” and Jonathan Adams

The Wife and I really like the TV show “Bones”. We downloaded all the entire seasons and watched them all.

I think the show is going downhill, but don’t get me wrong, I still like it. It’s going down slow, not fast, but I predict it will be suddenly canceled.

The TV show is based on a book about a real anthropologist, so indirectly it would seem to be based on reality and the things that happen in the show should be earthly possible. But that’s not what I’m getting at.

Now, it the most recent season, the two main characters, Bones and Booth are romantically involved. She’s pregnant and the show is going more and more unbelievable. But that’s not what I’m getting at.
What I’m getting at is at the beginning of the second season, one of the best characters, The Boss, Dr Goodman, played by Jonathan Adams, didn’t come back. This was the beginning of the shows descent. The Lab got a new boss, Camille, (far right in the picture above). Shes a good actress, but her character is so whiny. She is always throwing in something like “don’t forget I’m the boss” at the end of practically every sentence and it’s frankly, quite annoying. She constantly reminds everyone she’s the boss because she’s not the boss.

Jonathan Adams, Dr Daniel Goodman, was THEE boss. No arguing, no questions asked, he handles it. Comparatively, Dr Camille is a weeny, irritating and petty from the start.

I don’t know why Jonathan didn’t come back for season two. I hope he didn’t get screwed. I think his departure sprang the first leak that will eventually sink the Bones TV series boat. Dr Camille is just leaky, no way she could hold the position as boss in real life. Letting Booth and Bones become romantical is another leak in the boat. What’s biggest leak in the boat is the drift away from being believable.

Anyway, the point of this post: I like the show, I liked Dr Goodman, Dr Camille is an annoying crybaby. Plus for other reasons, the show is going in a non sustainable direction. But I still like it. I think it will be gone after the next season or two.

I observe again and again the same phenomenon in life, people make a good thing, then they mess with it and mess with till it’s all messed up.

Dog Beach Diving Movie Weekend

It was a very nice weekend. I finished the book “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and then watched the movie. The movie was kinda like the first fifth of the book, and the last fifth of the book, and the middle was missing, but wasn’t bad. In the movie the characters didn’t look like I imagined. If you see the movie first, you visualize the characters as they appeared in the movie when you read the book. If you read the book first, the movie doesn’t do as good as your imagination.Saturday I took the dogs to the beach, as you already knew, and as you can see from the pictures below.

Sunday we went diving, but again, you knew that.

Last night we went to the theater to see “Hunger Games” which was a pretty good movie. I went with my wife and a bunch oh her friends, who all had read the book, and were scrutinizing the heck out of the movie. I suppose I shall have to read the book too. I am currently reading Hunter S Thompson s “Rum Diaries”, I saw the movie first.

Ditto, the natural beach bum. He knows all about what it’s all about on the beach.

I hope you have a good week!

Eel Pic & Vid

The Wife and I went diving today, we got some good shots of an eel, and I got this video
The video is about a minute 22 seconds

Also, I spent some time blowing air rings, like a smoke ring, but with air, underwater. (I cannot blow smoke rings…)

Mini Series Dreams

For the last three nights I’ve had three short seeming dreams in the morning before I wake up.

Three nights ago, I dreamed I was having a phone conversation with a friend of mine Ben, from Virginia, who I haven’t heard from since I moved down here. It was just a phone conversation, but when I woke up, I felt like I really talked to him the night before. In the dream he said he and his wife split up.

Night before last I dreamed a friend of mine, (Orville) and I were in prison. I had a piece of concrete that was cylindrical, like a Red Bull can. Orville wanted to steal it. I didn’t want him to. I’m not even sure he was in the dream, I just knew he was there and wanted to steal my piece of concrete.. Yesterday I called him and told him about the dream.

When I was in the Navy, my first ship got decommissioned. Part of the work was inventorying all our hand tools and stuff. After we invetoried everything several times, we took the tools, and put them on the pier. People from other ships could take tools, but none of us from our ship could. Last night I dreamed I was in line to get whatever I wanted from that row-pile of tools on the pier. I was near the end of the line, so all the good stuff was gone, but I got a soldering iron, a spare heating element for a different soldering iron, and I found several of my hats, with my name on them. Also I recognized some of my friends hats. But the hats were there because I threw them away, and I didn’t take them.

How’s that for weirdness?

Not Quite As Nice As I Thought.

Yesterday didn’t quite turn out to be the nice day I thought I was going to have. I wanted to finish that course, I was whipping through the modules, passing the test at the end of each. I did the last module, and test, and thought I was done. I clicked the “next” button, and got the following message:

Dammit! I should have stopped, gone to the beach, had the day I had planned, studied a while, and taken the test later, but I didn’t. I took it right then and there. There was a two hour limit. I figured if there was a two hour limit, surely I could do it in an hour. It was a tough test, I flunked it and I used the whole two hours. When I got done, the day was gone, and now I gotta take the test again. Later, next week.

I woke up this morning, looked at the clock, and it was 5:55. I got up, and a few minutes after that it started POURING! I got soaked bringing in the stuff that can’t get wet and taking out the plants. We had a nice rain.
Long time ago, I had driven to Florida, and was taking a scuba class, I had the alarm set for 5:55. Ever since then, I have kinda liked 5:55. I think I’ll set my alarm for 5:55 and start getting up at 5:55 every day. Another moment I like is just after noon, I have to flip my watch from the date to the seconds to see 12:34:56. If I’m awake after midnight, and I think of it. I might look for 12:34:56 then too! I love it!
I gotta go, there’s these guys in white suits with big butterfly nets knocking at the front door, their shirts say “Funny Farm Insane Asylum” on the back. They want me to try on a jacket with long long sleeves……

Have a good Friday and a Great WEEKEND!!!

Thursday Picture Post

I am hopefully not working today, it the client calls, I will go, but I expect that won’t happen. Today I need to pay my bills, (online) finish an online course I’ve been taking on Voice Telephone Networks and Studio Interface Systems I could do a little yardwork, and maybe go to the beach. But you know how that goes. My eyes are bigger than my plate. I’ll be lucky to get the course done.
Yesterday I stopped at the beach on the way home from work. Took a few pics. Here they are. Yup.
