I took these this morning from the roof. I saw this bird building the nest a month or so ago. Now there are proud parents living in our mahogany tree!
Chinese officials are launching a campaign to crack down on stripteases and other lewd shows that have become popular at funerals.
Read more about it HERE. A stripper is better than a funeral.
AAAAAaand, it’s FRIDAY! Let’s get this weekend rollin!
Have a good-un!
You can’t really see in the picture, but banana batch #2 is on it’s way! Hopefully some day we’ll produce bananas more or less constantly.
Also I planted 2 more paypaya trees, and I’m trying to sprout a plum tree. Ripe Cayman plums are gooooood!
This has been a nice fast week so far, and I hope it continues to move quickly!
Have a good day!
That title sounds like one of those spam blogs, doesn’t it?
Today, for a little while, while I’m supposed to be working, I’m going to do some research on the sleep cycle. Our mattress is so good I have a hard time getting up in the morning.
Seems like if I set my alarm 15 minutes later or earlier, I could get up easier.
See? already I was mistaken, I always thought REM sleep was the deepest stage of sleep.
Someone was telling me that there are Apps for your phone that “listen” to your breathing and wake you up at the best time in your sleep cycle.
Have you heard of these Apps? Do you use one? Let me know!
Have a good day!
It was a really good weekend. We had a friend of a friend visit, I went diving. And we went to the weigh-in of a fishing contest. While at the marina where the weigh-in was, I saw the sailboat above. The wife and I talked to the owners for about a half hour. Man O man, when I run into cool people like them, I feel like I could have taken an alternate path in this existence and been happy too. While I love my life here, I sure would love to be on a sailboat, sailing around the world. They had great stories to tell in just the short time we talked. Hightailing it out of Colombia, after running into problems with the government, then hitting rough seas and considering turning back. Through the Panama Canal. We didn’t even scratch the surface, hearing the stories.
I could live that life.
Now it’s back to work, beach lunch and maybe a barbecue tonight.
Life is good, it’s too short, but life is good!
Have a good week!
Yesterday sucked. From the time I woke up wrong to the evening when it was almost bed time, yesterday sucked. I was freezing all day. I felt like crap, although I didn’t have a headache or stomach ache or sore leg or anything in particular, I just felt like crap. I felt better after I drank some tea my wife gave me. At least I quit freezing.
Yesterday my weather app said “sunny, all day” and it poured. I was glad for my full rainsuit riding home on my scooter.
Today will be better than yesterday.
That’s fer sure.
I had a really hard time getting up this morning. I was dreaming, and I was getting ready to do something very important when the alarm went off. I can’t accomplish anything with these alarm clocks disturbing me all the time.
Here’s some pics from yesterday lunchtime. Wordless Wednesday, I didn’t say nuthin!
The day after we got back from Costa Rica, The Wife and I got a new mattress.
Let me tell ya, I haven’t woke up since. Well, I mean, I’m awake right now, what I mean is that I haven’t woke up in the night and struggled to get back to sleep.
It’s nice. In the past year or so, I’ve gone from “World Famous Insomniac” to “Pretty Good Sleeper”. Mostly what I did was focus on trying to sleep better. Concentrate on not laying awake worrying about crap by focusing on my breathing, trying to actually stop thinking.
It works, and I like it. A lot.
And the new mattress is great too!
Have a good ‘un!
