Repeat Dream: The Bus

I think I had the same dream last night and night-before-last.


The bus was huge, as big as the inside of a movie theater, and had the same kind of seats. There was an upstairs to the bus, where the driver sat, and there were more seats there too, but the upstairs was smaller. President Obama was sitting there. When I went upstairs, he waved at me.
Then I woke up.

Glad it’s Friday! We’re having a heavy thunderstorm right now. When I woke up , there was quiet lightning all around. Then it got loud and started raining.

Think I’ll take the car today instead of the scooter…


My Next New Tablet?


I’ve had my Nexus 7 with bluetooth keyboard for over two years and it’s been great! But I think it’s time to start thinking of an upgrade.

Asus made the Nexus 7, and I’m pretty sold on their new flagship, the ZenPad 8. It hasn’t come out yet.

I also really really love the Sharkk Keyboard, custom built for the Nexus 7. I wish I could get one for the ZenPad 8, but nothing is available yet, and I’m not sure it will be. A keyboard has become a necessity for me.

The ZenPad spec sheet looks great, 64 gig of storage, plus a SD card slot, 4 gig of RAM (I’ve only ever seen 1 or 2 gig of RAM in any tablet) and a quad core processor. Sounds fantastic! The only thing missing is a SIM card for 4G connectivity.

So what do you think? I need a good keyboard/case to go with it, that’s all.

Mexico Hit With Seaweed


from the BBC

I’ve been watching this for the past couple of weeks on the Akumal beach webcam, there’s a link in the menu bar above. Usually it’s one or two guys out in the morning with rakes and a wheelbarrow, but nowadays it’s a dozen guys and big truck after big truck backing onto the beach hauling it away. There’s still more floating at sea.

Check out the webcam, it’s not too bad today, I think the news was over before it made the news. Monday there was seaweed all the way to the tree closest to the water, and piled high!

Yesterday I ran out of gas on my scooter. I forgot. A couple days ago, I remember looking at a quarter tank, thinking “I’ll need gas tomorrow”.Then yesterday the engine started cutting out and the fuel gauge was on “E” the engine died at the light right next to the Rubis gas station. It took $6.25 to fill! That’s a lot for my scooter, usually $5 is max.

HUMPDAY! Have a goodun!

Monday Morning Blues After A Fantastic Weekend

Here we are, Monday morning. Again. I got the Monday Morning Blues.

Friday we went to Royal Palms beach bar. The wife wanted to dance. There’s a link to Royal Palms in my menu bar

Saturday we went shopping and got new suitcases for our Canada trip in less than three weeks. Then we had lunch at a place called Icoa. I had a Maine Lobster sandwich that was very good, and the staff was super nice. Then we went to a pool party and had a beef curry dinner at a friends house.

Sunday I mowed the yard, and my lawnmower ran good for a while, then quit. I just had it fixed. I was able to get it running by putting some duct tape on the throttle. It’s going back to the shop today. After I mowed the yard, I took sun on the  porch while the Wife went on a catamaran cruise. She didn’t get home till late and was mad because the staff made the people leave their shoes on the dock, and when they got back, one of her flip flops was missing.

This morning I was doing my exercises and we had a sudden, heavy downpour. I got soaked getting the stuff inside and closing the doors and windows. Now I’m drinking coffee and getting ready to go back to work.

All I gotta focus on is making it to the beach for lunch.

Have a good week!

The man left behind in the shark attack


So, I just read an article about a in-the-water photographer who was forgotten during the Mick Fanning almost shark attack. It was an oversight on the part of the rescuers, caught up in the moment, but it speaks poorly of the  organizers of the surf meet, inadequate training and procedures.

How would it  have felt to watch everyone leave after you just saw a giant fin of a shark that attacked someone near you in the water? Imagine the swim in alone, knowing there was a hungry shark about.

Really Bad Movies!

A friend of mine likes to watch crappy movies. He goes on Netflix and finds movies with one star, and watches them. At his bidding, The Wife and I watched “Sharknado” and “Airplane VS Volcano”, two spectacularly bad movies. The Wife and I have discussed watching “Sharknado 2”, with no great enthusiasm.

I just came across this little tidbit of info on the BBC:


There will be a Sharknado 4, I didn’t even know there was a 3.

read all about it HERE.

Absolutely thrilling.

I remember “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”. It was unbelievable to me that the entire plot was recovering his stolen bicycle. I thought “Napoleon Dynamite” was so bad that it went all the way around the scale to being  good again.

Another is “Mystery Science Theater 3000”. A janitor has been blasted into space by two evil NASA employees, and to torture him, they send him really bad movies to watch with his two robots. Their aside comments are hilarious.

What are some really crappy movies you’ve watched and would recommend? Or perhaps NOT recommend?

Rough Night

Last night I went to bed at 10 and woke up at 2. I got up and drank some water, but after that, although I slept, I was aware and felt like I was awake. I had weird dreams.

One dream, I was in this fishing store, and I HAD to buy something, but there was nothing I wanted. The closest thing to something I’d buy was a welcome mat with the name of the fishing store on it, and I didn’t want to buy that. I’m aware there’s a lot I can’t remember to this dream.

Another dream was that someone was forging a contract or document, (I think they were stealing my house). In this dream, a girl was taking the contract or deed, hold it against the wall, and pour water behind the document so that it flows down the wall, and then  you could  change the document.

Even when I’m dreaming these dreams, I know they are crazy, and I feel nauseous while I’m dreaming. Part of me is saying, “stop thinking this shit”

Even now, I feel like my brain is not functioning correctly. For example, I did a Google image search for “rough night” and got bizarre results, then I think “Am I crazy? What is this?” All I wanted was a funny picture for my blog.

Try it, Google “rough night” and tell me what it is.

This type of brain malady can only bee cured with lots and lots of coffee. Working on it.
