Cold Cayman

It’s so cold in Cayman….

How cold is it?

It’s so cold our coconut oil is frozen and I can’t get my daily shot out of the bottle.

It’s cold and windy. Very cloudy, Lugubrious. We have the AC off and the windows closed. I wore a jacket to work yesterday and will again today.

It will get better soon. Looks clearer this morning.

Have a wonderful day!

Weirdweather Friday

The weather is weird, half cloudy and totally misty feeling. It feels like a foggy day feels but we don’t have fog in Cayman. Sometimes you think you might have felt a drop of rain but you didn’t.

There’s supposed to be a cold front coming through this weekend, 30 MPH winds and rain and thunder. Why can’t we schedule that for the work week instead of the weekend? I have beach plans.

Yesterday, running, I tripped on this path and went flying. I scraped my knee and it was no big deal yesterday, but today it’s pretty stiff. I walked and swam this morning, no running. It was a pretty spectacular fly and fall though. I thought “The moonlight is bright enough to run down this path”. Instantly I tripped perfectly went flying and landed on my front. Only one knee was affected.

Have a good weekend.

Skipped A Day

I couldn’t post yesterday because I left my tablet at work day before, now I’m running super late this morning..

My Mom is coming to visit, this month or next. Here’s a pic, my Mom’s first selfie. About a year or so old.

Have a great day!

Gold

Had a kind of continuation of an old dream last night. I found a lot of gold while scuba diving a long time ago. In last nights dream, it had been siting in a storeroom shelf for a couple years, and it was time to divide it up and start spending it.

There were four boxes, each box had about 10 bars of gold, each bar was probably 10 pounds, about the size of an 8 pound scuba diving weight.

One box had one piece missing, I figured whoever took it would be back for more, which helped to expedite the divvying process.

I woke up before I could bing my share home.

Have a golden day!

Should I?

Do you?

Usually I mark these as spam, because they usually appear on posts that are very (years) old. And they’re full of links. This is the first time one has appeared on a recent post.. Maybe I can make a few pennies in a century!

Have a great weekend!

Bizarrest of Dreams

My long dream last night revolved around thiose little plastic flags, with the 3 inch by 3 inch solid color plastic flag and a wire flagpole.

Started off in Alaske I think. There was a path in the woods and there was a piece of brown styrofoam with about 20 of thise flags stuck in it. There you left the path, and went back into the woods where you came to an old abandoned high school or shopping mall.

I saw pictures on the wall of graduates with the square hats with tassles on them. There was a big yellow circle on the top of each hat, I think there was a 32 printed in the circle. I saw rows of the same has on the top shelf of a closet in the “school”.

I went in the “Board Room” and the vending machines came alive and started yelling at me in very strange angry voices. One of the vending machines grabbed my leg and I pulled it out into the hall. As the machine left the board room, it melted or disentegrated or something. All the other machines yelled at me that I killed “Louie” or whatever his name was.

There’s tons more that I can’t remember. My brother-in-law was in the dream, he wanted me to bring him one of the little flags. There were people with me all the time. I think I went to the school twice, the second time to get a flag…

That’s about all I remember..

Super weird dream…

Safety VS Useability

MY lawnmower is defective. It is designed so that the little vent that shoots the cut grass out the side is not open far enough, and it clogs with grass constantly.

There’s a spring loaded door that covers it up completely, and a plastic adapter that holds it open a little, but not enough. I rekkon that the US manufacturer is worried about getting sued if debris fly out and break a window, so they made it that way. Nevermind the fact that it can’t cut grass.

So I modified it. Now it spews grass 20 feet and doesn’t clog, and I don’t have to stop the motor every 5 steps and clean it by hand.

Back in the day, NAUI dive tables were so conservative the joke was “If you’re diving NAUI tables, why dive?” PADI tables were much better, and everyone switched to PADI. Now, NAUI barely exists. Thank gawd for dive computers, people don’t use tables anymore.

It seems like the guys buildig lawnmowers never mow lawns, some of the the guys writing dive tables never dive and there are so many other examples. Sure, things should be safe, but I won’t say they should be as safe as possible. If you were really scared of breaking a window with your lawnmower, the safest thing to be would never mow. If you were worried about dive injuries, the safes thing would be don’t dive.

But nobody wants to live that way. Besides, what if, for example, I get tired of cleaning my mower vent every 15 seconds, kill the engine, stick my hand in there, clean out the grass, restart the engine, mow another 15 feet, and repeat? What if, for example, I modofied the dead man switch on the mower so I could stick my hand in there with the engine running? The danger of getting some fingers cut off is worse than the danger of breaking a window.

Anyway, that’s my rant for today. This weekend, I plan on finishing the painting on the back porch, and building a plantstand to hold a lot of plants, a multi-shelf, long heavy duty plant stand with wheels.

Have a great weekend!

Sudden Stop

All week, It seemed like the week is going fast. Until today, all of a sudden, it seemes like it’s dragging. It feels like Friday, and it is painful to constantly remind myself that it’s Thursday. It’s also American Thanksgiving. Regular work day in Cayman. Supposed to rain today too. After work, I’m going to move more stuff from the unpainted side of the back porch to the painted side. It should be quick work to finish the back porch after that. Yesterday, I made a heavy duty trolley plant stand for this lemon tree in a giant pot on the back porch.

I made the green thing under the pot yesterday. And now it’s about time for me to head out to work. Happy American Thanksgiving! (I’m really thankful for a lot of stuff, it just isn’t reflected in todays post.)
