Slow n Steady

Slow n steady, low and level, that’s how I’m feeling today. I’m just ready to go to work and work. Think of nothing but work and workin.

I have a pretty busy weekend lined up. Some kind of swimming event at Sunset House, a beach clean up Sunday morning, pizza on the beach Saturday afternoon, Friday night dinner club tonight (hopefully). Not to mention all the yard work I should have done last weekend that I didn’t do.

Should be a busy weekend! Havva goodun!

Random Fridayness

Two Spotted Eagle Rays inside the house

Itsa FRIDAY! It rained last night and it’s lighting-ey this morning.

Above in the picture are two spotted eagle rays. I had one, and had the other and decided to take a picture of them both.

Last night I considered going to Movie Night, but went outside and it was raining. Later, I checcked the Westin webcam and movie night looked like I was missing a good one. But a few minutes after I took this screenshot, I looked again and there were water droplets all over the camera. So it did rain at movie night after the below picture was taken. I don’t even know what the movie was anyway. Someone else told me that Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy was there.

And it’s Friday, The only thing planned for the weekend are more house repairs (electrical) and lunch with the wife.

Have a good weathered weekend!

Parasites Brainwash Grasshoppers Into Suicide

Do not panic, this article is from 2005. But it is kind of terrifying. I saw something similar done to a human in the science documentary Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. They put the parasite in Chekov’s ear and it affected his brain.

Friday! Finally! It’s shaping up to be a nice weekend. Diving Sunday, Early beach morning Saturday.

Yesterday I had a first aid class for work, When I was an active scuba instructor, I was an active first aid instructor for teaching rescue diver. And I was first aid trained as a lifeguard too. A lot has changed in the first aid world over the years.

I hope you have a pleasant weekend!

BTK Big Belly

Our cat, BTK (pronounced beeteekee) Seems to feel fine, but hre belly has swollen as big as a honeydew melon. This morning, when I fed them (we have 5 outdoor cats) I grabbed her and put her in a kennel to take to the vet today. I made her an appointment yesterday.) I know it’s for her own good, but I hope she’s not mad at me when we get back home. I also hope there’s not much wrong with her that a simple pill or shot won’t fix.

BTK is the mother of most of our cats, probably about 12 years old. She was always so good to her children, letting them have her food after they ate all theirs, even when they got older. My mentor for keeping an even temper. I’ll be glad when I get her home, safe and healthy.

It’s FRIDAY! Yeay!Have a good weekend!

Good Morning Friday!

It’s Friday and it’s supposed to be a nice day.
My back is feeling better. Yesterday I went snorkeling at lunch and it helped. I made an effort not sleep on my back last night too. Laying on my stomach feels so much better. I called a doctor yesterday, but got an answering machine so I took it as a sign and didn’t leave a message.

I’m ready for a good weekend. Beach birthday party tomorrow. Sunday I hope is quiet and uneventful.

Have a good weekend!

Missing Boy In Japan Found

image

There was a boy, dropped off by the side of the road as punishment for throwing stones missing almost a week before being found today or yesterday.

When I was a kid, I did my best to not modify my behavior when punished, to illustrate that punishment was inffective.

Good job kid, I’d say you kicked ass!

In other news, we got a new fridge yesterday. Two and a half thousand dollars… My phone died, I called the manufacturer because of a one year warranty, and they say the IMEI number isn’t valid. Sounds like a loada hooie to me. Meanwhile, I’m getting my ancient Galaxy S III fired up again.

And it’s Friday. Rainy all weekend, don’t care.

Have a good weekend.

Phone Died

This morning, I woke up, looked at the clock, and it was 5:10. my phone alarm didn’t go off. It’s been giving trouble, not coming on when I wake it,  but this has been the first potentially catastrophic failure.

100% of my active readers demand more Italy pictures. Therefore, I have decided to post almost all of them. Starting today, I will upload pics in post per day in Italy groups. 

Stay tuned!

Uneventful Friday, I Hope.

It’s finally Friday. This has been a long, slow week.

Today, I have a doctors appointment to get the prescription for my blood pressure renewed. Hope I can get in and out of there without the doctor making a big deal, demanding a bunch of tests..

No weekend plans.

Two weeks till Italy!

Insanity…

…is making the same mistake over and over again.

Yesterday thought of an amazing topic, thought I’d never forget it, didn’t write it down, and can’t remember it now.

At least it’s FRIDAY!

Looking forward to a good weather weekend and beach!

Happy Happy Friday Friday!

TGIF!

Went running this morning, well, walking/running.

Busy Day at wwork, I have a report due that’s basically done, but not polished. Want to get that done today, BUT I have a lot of meetings and a dental appointment this afternoon.
