Yard Work

Spring came late here.  Earlier this season we had snow, which turned into 90 degree weather in a space of 12 days.   Now we are back to cool and wet weather.

I'm currently "on vacation."  Well, I have time off and I get to stay at home for a week.  Not going anywhere special.  So I've been trying to clean the house and work on the yard.  I'm happy that the prediction of 5 days of rain proved to be false.

Today was mostly yard work.  I ran some of the engines on my tools to make sure everything was in working order.  (I'd only used the lawn mower so far.)  Ran the generator for a few hours and placed some fuel stabilizer in the tank.  (We had it out a few months ago because we thought we were going to loose power, but didn't.  And I really don't think that I winterized it after that use.)

The inch worms are out in force.  I had so many of them on me.  I actually threw all of my work clothes into the wash after I finished.  And inch worms leave your clothes smelling funny.  Along with every thing else that I washed with those clothes.

Found a new blog, "Lurking Rythmically."

I added a new blog to my list of blogs that I read.

It's called "Lurking Rythmically."  I can only say that I found it because I was following links in other blogs and thus I had a bunch of tabs opened when I realized what I had.  Yeah, I'm an ADD internet surfer like that.

So, I'll add it to my list of blogs.  I can't tell you whom I need to thank.

It covers a wide range of topics, from gun rights to My Little Pony to games.  That covers the majority of my interests right there!

I'll link this awesome post of theirs that I enjoyed reading.  My "So-Called" Rights.

Enjoy reading!

Issues with Blogger

I don't post much by way of this blog.  However, I do respond to a handful of other blogs using this ID.  Today, I can't seem to post any replys.  I keep getting errors of some sort.  

Oh well.

What is Buck Wild?

For all intents and purposes, I have an electronic newsfeed.  I get most of my news online.  It is supposed to give priority to local news over national/international.  And I have it set for "news" and "science" over sports, entertainment, et al.

So why is the news about a "Buck Wild" star dying keep headlining my news feed?  I've never even heard of the show.  Plus, are reality stars really all that newsworthy?  Half the stuff they do, they do it for the show.

Yes, I agree that the deaths of three people are a tragedy.  But why focus on that and ignore other events.  Don't take it the wrong way, but the last I read the cause of death was not known.  Unfortunately I feel that when the results are realeased that the cause can be boiled down to stupidity.

To the family and friends who lost their loved ones in this incident, my sympathies go out to you.

House Set of Subterranean Animism - Chireiden Set

This is a neat string of electronic music.  Pretty much it seems that someone just put the whole album on YouTube.  But the music flows pretty seamlessly from one to another.  

Just a nice listen.   

Happy April Fools Day!

It's April 1st!  It's a day traditionally associated with pranks and jokes.

I should totally post something really funny here.

But I got 'nuthin.
