Its Tuesday, got the week more than 20% knocked out. Looking forward to a beach lunch and an afternoon swim. The first half mile swim of the season is this Saturday and I plan on being there!
Last night I didn’t sleep worth a dang. I got up about 1AM and went outside and laid down and looked at the stars for a while, then I went back to bed. Still couldn’t sleep, so I got back up with my pillow and blanket and went out again and laid there looking for shooting stars. I saw about 3. Then I went back to bed around #am and was sleeping good when the alarm went off. Two snooze buttons and I was running a little late this morning, but here I am.
Here’s a couple pics from my lunchtime beach walk yesterday.

It was a good weekend.
Went to the dog show on Saturday. Ditto got ripped off. The obstacle course is an event where the dog has to go through a series of obstacles, showing his ability to follow commands. The event was timed. They did it 3 dogs at a time, we were stuck behind someone slow, and therfore didn’t win anything. The dogs that won, didn’t even make it through the course, they just quit one obstacle quickly and went on to the next. Ditto completed all the objectives quickly and thoroughly. We spent most of the time standing and waiting. He did win a ribbon in best trick though.
Sunday we went to the beach all day and got a lot of sun.
The astronomical society meeting was postponed till the 3rd.
Now I’m back in the shit at work with these computers that don’t work. I found another bad one, looks like. That’s 4 out of 5 bad new computers. while I’m dealing with these problems, my regular workload is backing up..
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about
the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

It’s going to be a great weekend! There is a big international volleyball tournament at the public beach starting today.
There is the dog show tomorrow. Ditto won first place last year, looking for a repeat. According to the OI Girl, Ditto will be wearing his spiked collar and ‘Bad To the Bone’ T-Shirt! A Dogly Dawg!! Sheba will be in the best personality contest, she’ll do pretty good in that!
So I’m ready for a good weekend.
The weather is supposed to be good too!!!
The easiest way to upload a video from your computer if the video is on your computer:
To put a video on your blog from a website, like YouTube, you can either embed the video, and the video will appear on your blog, or you can put a link to the video, and when someone clicks the link, they will leave your blog and go to the page where the video is.
To embed, follow the instructions on the picture.
To create a link, copy the URL from the web page you want to link to:
Highlight where you want the link:
then click the link button, as described in the window below
and paste the into the blank.
Then publish your post, and check it to make sure it works!
I took another video this morning with my cell phone from the same place. I really like stopping there in the morning for a few minutes on my way to work.
I’m pretty cranky today. I’m pissed at this equip manufacturer whose new equipment is totally failing and he’s not doing anything about it. I’m pissed at Sheba for harassing Ditto. And I’m just cranky.
On my link list, is Facebook. It is really cool, because I have found lots of friends that otherwise I would have probably never have heard from again.
They made a big change lately that has most people pissed off. I like that on Blogger, if they make a change, the new people who sign up after the change get the newest version, but the oldsters get to keep their version.
I worry because a lot of the people on my “Blogs I Always Read” list seem to have quit updating their blogs. It has happened before. Soon I’ll have to go edit my list.
It’s laziness on my part, I put a lot of time in my blog, try to find new blogs, then I get a list and become complacent. The active bloggers slowly disappear and I don’t replace them.
The same thing happens here on this island, you’re new, you go out, make an effort to make new friends, create a circle of friends, then relax. Slowly the circle of friends gets smaller, and aren’t replaced. Pretty soon there’s only a few people that you’re close with, and it seems like the whole island is shrinking.
Life takes continual effort.
I got up when the dawgs got me up, walked them and had some cereal, I call them Choking Pellets, but they are GOooooOOooD! All Bran Bran Buds
Later I think I’ll make Bacon and Eggs too. Breakfast and Blunch.
I need to whack the weeds in the yard but I just can’t see it happening today.
