This morning, when the alarm went off, I was doing arts and crafts on the moon. Apparently, if you just squirt some oxygen out on the moon’s ground, gravity keeps it there and you can be outside on the moon without a spacesuit. For a while, eventually the oxygen dispurses.
I don’t remember what art and crafts we were doing, and I don’t remember who else was there, but I remember being in the low gravity and how cool it was to not need a spacesuit on the moon.
Did you know, that if you were on the moon, the earth would appear to be in the same spot in the sky all the time? And you could observe the earths rotation, hour by hour?
By the way, if you do go to the moon, take a spacesuit. I don’t want to hear any complaints later; “He told me I could go outside on the moon with no spacesuit, and it didn’t work.”
It’s a cloudy Wednesday,I’m ready to get the day going, have a good one!
Today in about an hour, is the second equinox of 2020, where the sun passes over the equator into the southern hemisphere. The first equinox of 2020 was in March. Today is the first day of spring south, first day of autumn north, of the equator. I personally like spring/summer better than fall/winter but I’m temporarily eager for time to pass, so I’m glad for it. I’m also glad for my friends in New Zealand who are looking forward to spring.
I was cleaning out an old box of cables and junk yesterday and found a case from an old smartphone I used to have.
I thought “Man, I want a phone this big. I have really disliked the huge and huger phones. I read an article with the words Comically Large Phones in the title that talks about this.
A year or so ago, I was interested in gimbals, I couldn’t find one that would work because the phones were too big. I bought two, neither work. One almost works, if I took the protective case off the phone, but sorry, I’m not taking the case off my $800 phone to put it in a $100 gimbal. We need reasonable sized phones.
I’ve been looking for a smaller, pocket-sized phone. Portable, ya know? Not one I need a special bag to carry it in or a device to strap it outside my body because it can’t fin in my pocket. I love the size of my tiny old flip phone, and the battery lasts a month, but it doesn’t have internet or email.
Twas another busy, productive weekend. I have half the resurfaced porch painted, which is the roof of the new apartment. The interior of the apartment is done, and I cleaned it quite extensively. All it needs is a moppin’. This week I’ll move the patio furniture from the non-painted side to the painted side, and paint the non painted side. Then I’ll be back to grinding and filling driveway cracks.
Today the wife starts a new job. She has a reserved parking spot. With her name on it. That means I can no longer survive without a reserved parking spot with my name on it. I gotta take this straight to the CEO, I think you’ll agree.
“A star’s death doesn’t have to spell doom for its planets.” That’s good to know.
The back porch resurfacing is pretty much done, except for the painting, and this afternoon we start on the ceiling of the apartment. Hopefully this will finish off that project and we can start using it.
Eventually, I want to resurface the roof, front porch and driveway, in that order.
I just reset my alarm from 4:45 AM Mon thru Fri to 4:25 AM Mon-Fri. Years ago, I gave up my morning running and swimming to give the dogs a good, long walk. I’ve been resentful and angry about it off and on ever since. Long story. So now, hopefully, I’ll have time to exercise me as well as the dogs.
Also, kind of due to a typo at work, since covid, I start work a half hour earlier and get off a half hour earlier, which is great!
I had a very productive weekend. With professional help, we finished sealing the first half of the back deck. After it dried, I moved the furniture to the new side and pressure washed getting ready to seal the second half.
I finished the interior of the apartment, crack-repair. Now it’s ready for the prep and paint guy I hired. Not that piece of shit contractor who built the place.
I loosened/removed a hurricane shuttter and sealed around the window, it leaked in a windy rainstorm we had the other day. That was not an easy job and I hope the leak repair was successful.. With my luck recently, it’ll be “Bad Window” and not the sealant around the window. Although the sealing around the window that I replaced looked pretty bad.
And the wife and I went shopping, a half-day venture with multiple stops at various locations around the island.
It will be interesting to see what it’s like to get up earlier tomorrow. Have a great week!
