National Puppy Day

Was YESTERDAY! Who was in charge of promoting this should-be worldwide event? Why wasn’t there more publicity and hype?  Why didn’t everyone get the day off work?
I’m glad it’s Friday. Got the van fixed yesterday. No charge, of course. It’s a beautiful, ride-the-scooter day, but I’m taking the van. 

Have a great weekend!

Cat Closet

For the past several days, our cat has been obsessed with the bedroom closet. Every morning, she meows and wakes us up and wants to go in there.

This morning we had it out. I guess I won, because she’s hiding under the kitchen table.

She was whining, and I took her to her bed on the sofa, she ran back to the closet door. I picked her up, and put her on her bed on our bed, I petted her and got her pretty calmed down, but then she went back to the closet door, meowing loudly.

I put her back on the bed and she bit me, pretty hard. I gave her a swat and told her, “If you wanna play nice, I’ll plaay nice. If you wanna play rough, I’ll play rough”. Then I went downstairs and got her kennel.

She’s been quietly laying on a chair under the table ever since.

Today I’m taking the van in for some minor issues. Sounds like a loose piece of plastic inside the horn button, the telephone microphone doesn’t work on the bluetooth stereo, and there’s this rediculous heater in the back back that needs to come out.

Allso, my sister is quite sick, and I may need to go see her very soon.

Have a good day!

File Transfer App

One of the reasons my blog has less photos on it is because I blog on my tablet and take pics with my phone. Their paths rarely cross.

Sooo I’m installing a photo transfer app to each device so I can easily move files from phone to tablet and vice versa.

Possibly not the best choice, I’d rather have something more technical that boasts transferring files instead of photos, but this one came up near the top of both devices app list so here we go.

Hopefully, soon, more photos!

More of a DIARY.

It’s Tuesday and I feel pretty good again. Last night we went to the Macabuca Monday night bbq with some friends and it was nice.

Yesterday, the weather said rain today, and I was looking forward to taking the van instead of the scooter, but now the weather says clear, so I’ll probably scoot. But maybe not. 

I guess this blog is more a diary than anything  else. I don’t know what I expected. It’s not very “cool”, which I definitely wanted.

Oh  well, I’ll keep posting.

Have a great day!

Been A Long Time?

It seems like it’s been a long time since I posted, which must be a good sign, a sign that it was a nice long weekend.

I was reading a nice article about Britans Tidal Islands. It was a very pleasant read. You can read it HERE, if you’d like.

Oh and  the coffee came out good today too.

The Wife bought a new huge pot for growing big plants. I think it’s 100 gallons or 500 liters. We set it in place and put the dirt in it yesterday. (8 cubic feet of dirt filled it nicely)

AND as of 5:28 AM EST, about 45 minutes ago, SPRING HAS BEGUN! Or, Autumn, for my dear friends in he southen hemisphere.

Have a wonderful week and new season!

Let Me Be The First

To say Happy Springtime!!!

Here, the day is now longer than the night, which means that spring has sprung! May you have a wonderful spring and summer! Technically, it’s not spring until the sun passes over the equator, but here, the day is now longer than the night-tropics are weird that way, I’ve noticed.

Yyesterday at work, I got my computer replaced. The old one had been flakey since I got it. On the network, all my drive numbers were different and I couldn’t access a lot of stuff, like the “Global Shared Folder”. It was unfindable using “My Computer”. I made shortcuts to access severl folders. 

This week, they quit working. IT Deprtment scratched their heads and replaced my computer. It took all day. Now I feel like everyone is mad at me because I didn’t do any work yesterday. It’s unfounded, but I can’t shake the feeling. Now  feel angry at them for being (imainarily) angry with me. Insane.

It’s cold and windy here today No scooter – van.

Have a good day and HAPPY SPRING!

Coffee Differences

I make the coffee every day, because I get up first everyday. I make it the same every time too, 1 scoop of coffee for every  two cups of water. 
Some days, like today, it’s good. Some days, like yesterday, it was terrible. My wife thinks it’s good all the time, and says the difference is in my taste buds. I don’t know if I  agree with this, as the coffee at work seems much more consistent. Does anybody else experience this phenonemon?

Windy, north wind here, no scooter today, driving the new van!
