Rainy Friday

It’s a cold rainy Friday. It’s been raining for days. I’ve been driving the car not the motorcycle all week.
I haven’t been to the beach since Monday at lunch time.

I’ve discovered I don’t care about the weekends if it’s going to be raining,

I just deleted a long rant about work because it was not appropriate for this blog. I try to remain politically neutral here.

I’m going to get going now, and wish you a happy weekend.

I think foul weather makes me insane.

Happy Thanksgiving and Comet ISON

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the USA. I’m getting ready to go to work.

As we speak, there’s a comet going around the Sun. If it survives it’s trip, it may be very visible in the sky in December . I mentioned this comet before, and am reminding you again, as requested.

When I first got to Cayman, I saw my first Comet, Comet Hale-Bopp. It was very cool. I look forward to seeing another comet, this time with my binoculars. I remember looking at Hale-Bopp, I felt like I couldn’t make my eyes focus on it properly, hard to explain. My brain didn’t trust my eyes I guess. I am looking forward to another chance to see a comet.

That’s it for today, have a good day off, if you’re off.

The day after

Back to work today, after day laying down all day yesterday. I took a sick day yesterday, as you may already know. I feel much better.
I’m feeding the cats as I voice this. The cats are all antsy because there was a dog earlier that I chased off.
I’m basically removed everything I could remove from the boat. I chained the lower unit and the anchor is padlocked. Ridiculous.


I guess that’s about all for my rambling today time for that wonderful first cup of coffee! Yeeeha!

Terrible Tuesday

Not so terrible, but Monday sucked.
Got home from work found my boat full of footprints. My guess is thieves are casing the joint out. So we went and got some items to secure the boat better, and when I got home, although the Sun had set, it was still light on our street. Turns out that also yesterday they put not one but two street lights are tiny cul de sac. Now our bedroom is filled with light all night. Below is a pic of the two new lights.

Also last night, I got food poisoning.  Last time (time before last, now) we went to my new favorite restaurant, I saw a plate that looked really good.  It was about eight medallions of meat and it looked delicious. I told the waitress that I wanted to try it next time.
So, last night, I ordered it.  It didn’t look the same It was nasty. Now I feel like my stomach is full of molten lead.
I’m taking my first ever sick day from work.

Monday Picture Post

Monday, Blah Blah Blah-Blah, that song is playing in my head again.

Here is a picture post for your Monday.

US Airways, comin’ in

I don’t know the name of this fish, penis fish?

Same fish, different angle.

Upside down goldfish. Usually you see one or two, with a school of a different type. But these were all together, in a crack in a channel where it was very surgy.


Fried Day

Today is Fried Day. The day to eat some fried food. Happy Fried Day!

50 years ago John F Kennedy was killed. I was three years old but I think I remember it. I remember my parents were upset about something.  Something big. Like a war. I can’t really express the memory on paper.

I am looking forward to the weekend. If my boss asks me to work extra time I’m going to say no. I halfway expect him to.  No!

Things I used to think

animalsWhen I was little, like 3 years old I guess, I thought dogs were male and cats were female. I thought horses were female and cows were male. I thought the hood ornament on a car was to help the driver aim, and wondered why it was in the middle, not in front of the driver.

In kindergarten, I met a kid who thought the blue in the sky was the clouds, and the white was clear sky.

In third grade, my best friend told me, seriously, that he invented the word diarrhea. Actually, I can’t remember if it was the word or if he claimed to invent diarrhea itself.

I may come back and add to this list later.

Sad News on the Chicken Front

It is a Tuesday. I don’t have much to say today. My computer still tied up. Converting MKVs ti .AVIs. I haven’t checked my email since Thursday apparently.

Hawk the rooster has disappeared. He’s been missing for about three days. I think another big rooster killed him. Now there’s just Pearl.

Slow Computers


You’ve read about how I”d like to eliminate Microsoft from my life, I seldom use my laptop any more. Of course,  I use Microsoft all over the place at work, but there’s not much I can do about that.
Anyway, my little-used laptop seems to have suddenly slowed down to a crawl. Lately, I use it mostly to convert movie files from .mkv and .mp4 to .avi. I used to be able to do about 10 45 minute programs in about 4 hours, but for the past two days, it’s been much much slower, like one 45 minute program in two hours.

And I notice this slowness elsewhere with this computer. I think It’s time for a new laptop…. Mine is ancient.

It was a good weekend. Saturday beach, Sunday boat. I felt much more inexperienced Sunday than I felt last time I went out on the boat.

Now it’s Monday, and I think tomorrow is payday!

Have ye a good week.
