Pond’s frozen. Our friend Joan is out gardening. Spring fever is starting to hit.
We’re meeting Joan for lunch today if she’s not standing out in her garden as a stiff and frosty garden elf.
Time, however, to get out and get some stuff. If we don’t stop for cat food our lives will be […]
Feeling pretty good—I think it was a vitamin-mineral shortage.
Went and got the blood draw for the endocrinologist (remember Grant’s favorite word?) and due to the snow last night—no wait. Amazing!
But feels a little like a bug…
Maybe dietary. I’ve been skipping a few meals to keep my weight down. Not that I miss them. But today I’m also hungry.
I know and have known a few of the Star Trek cast, and every ‘inside’ story I’ve heard about him is a good story. Talented, multi-talented, and general nice person. He worked as an actor right down to his final years, and proved he could play all sorts of roles. A life and a career […]
It’s ‘different’ than the previous laptops. Weighs more. Has a monster power adapter–3x the size and weight of the previous. Keyboard is much the same. It’s supposed to be lighted, which requires a bios adjustment—granted you have the hardware. I asked for ‘no camera’. I see no need for one, and imho, they are exploitable. […]
Last night well after 10, Jane went down to the basement to get her laundry…and found a big puddle.
Our sump arrangement for the marine tank in the living room is right by the washing machine.
Two days ago, I spent at least two hours cleaning the skimmer — a fiendish plastic column, double-sleeved, with […]
Not only have they shipped my new machine four days early, they’re shipping it, apparently, overnight for Saturday delivery. And maybe my pitching several fits has shone a light into some areas of their machinery they need to look at.
We shall see. I hope this is good enough to make it worth all this!
We’re trying ‘dungeons’ for the first time in Guild Wars. Tried one, low-level, didn’t get quite through it, not enough firepower. So what do we do? We volunteer as cannon fodder for a much higher level dungeon. I’ll say we learned a bit…but we also went way, way, way late. Poor Lynn was up til […]
Jane got down and dirty and hauled rock out of the sodden pit of stones—the edge of the pond had depressed (fill dirt) and created a leak that lowered the water level several inches, making the red Japanese maple very happy. We will now have to remember to water it.
I went out after sand—couldn’t […]
a hive you don’t have to get into?
Just looked kind of interesting.
