Snow Crash

Indiana Jones meets Ready Player One. Very enjoyable read. Grabs you in the beginning. Let’s you go a little in the middle with the explaining part, but quickly grabs you again with its good plot, characters, action and concept.
Hiro is an expert swordsman pizza delivery guy by day. He’s also a computer hacker and a bigshot in the metaverse, (an online, virtual reality world).

Y.T is a 15 year old cute girl. She’s works as a “Kourier” (courier). Kouriers deliver their packages by “poonng” (attaching an electromagnet sling to passing vehicles) and catching a ride on ultra sophisticated skateboards. Her mother, a government programmer, has no idea Y.T. has such a dangerous job.
Computer virus’s might have already come out of the computer and been infecting humans for millennia, causing drastic, sudden historical changes.
Imagine if you could simply look at an image and it reprograms or destroys your mind (like a computer virus)
Hiro and Y.T. have to save us all from the next big virus release.

I enjoyed this book. Worth reading.


Above is a picture of a frogfish. Can you see it? He’s tiny, 5 would fit on your pinkie fingernail. I took this picture yesterday..Below are two of the same pic, drawn on to show the fishparts

Frogfish are masters of camouflage. I saw one once before, years ago. How was bigger than your thumb, but just as invisible. First you see the eye, then slowly the rest of the first. Especially if he moves

Yesterday was the King’s birthday holiday, which is why I was out diving instead of working. It rained hard while we were underwater, and it was dark. But it was a good dive.

Saturday was the Flowers One Mile Sea Swim. I did it in 44 minutes and 15 seconds.

it’s cloudy here and looks like it might be a rainy week

have a great day!

Cat S22

I bought a new phone, Cat S22 Flip. It has Android 11 and a touchscreen. It fits in my pocket. It is waterproof and “rugged” is the spec listed.

Im still moving into it, seeing if it’s going to work out.

Im so glad it’s Friday. I can already tell the weekend is going to be too short. I need to mow and the Flowers Mile Sea Swim is Saturday

Have a great weekend!

Between The Raindrops

Went out for my stretches this morning , opened the door – raining. So, got ready for the dog walk, no problems, and no rain. Got back home,.tried to go back out for my exercises, it was pouring!

Its a totally grey day, I hear thunder. Today would be a good day to stay home and take several long naps that run into each other..

I feel like I need to take some time off work, use up some vacation time.

Have a great day!

Nobody Is Talking Peace These Days

Russian ships are probably in Havana right now. The US Navy shadowing them as the patrol cruised within 30 miles of Florida

Read the article HERE .

China, Russia, North Korea, the US and all their opposites, none of them are talking peace. Everybody acts like they’re tired of taking crap from everyone else. Everybody is pushing pushing pushing. There’s several little wars going on with no end in sight. Hope we get straightened out before they turn into a big war.

If there was a big war, what would we call it? World War III?

If I was in the navy, I’d love to be in Havana. That would be an awesome liberty port.

Have a Fantastic Day!

Flooding Yesterday

I should have taken some pictures , but yesterday was a famously flooded day. Everywhere there was water. Water on the roads, water up to the edge of the runway at work. Rain everywhere

We got the rain we needed!

Happy Tuesday!

Good Point

People use AI to write their term papers and do their homework. How about mowng my yard? Imagine a robot lawnmower similar to those robot vacuum cleaners! That’d be do-able!

Is AI backwards?

Mother Nature will balance humanity out before long, I reckon!

Or more likely, we’ll balance ourselves out first….

Have a GREAT weekend !

Room For Improvement

Below are pics from this morning’s dawg walk.

It’s another Monday morning, my attitude has room for improvement.

It was an alright weekend. Dinner out Friday (at a shit restaurant I won’t go back to). Saturday had a nice breakfast with friends, then an afternoon pool party.

Sunday I stayed home, cleaned and did laundry.. We had some good rain finally, but as usual, as soon as I put the last houseplant out, it stopped, and thay didn’t even get wet

I watched the 1961 version of The Parent Trap. It was quite good, actually. I watched it because I was considering deleting it from my collection.

I’ll be keeping it.

Now it’s back to work… Bla.

A Little Rain

last night, in my sleep, I heard it rain. This morning my street was dry but apparently it did rain a little. During the day yesterday, it rained hard less than a mile south of my house but nothing here. It didn’t even get cloudy. The good news is, that it can’t not rain forever and it’s gotta rain soon. Hurricane season starts day after tomorrow.
