Wednesday 16

Wednesday 16- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 40 and 61 degrees, calm winds, humidity around 23 percent, mostly clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 63. North northwest wind between 9 and 11 mph. Thursday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 41. North northwest wind between 6 and 10 mph.”
Seimi came by with some Vista recovery disks sent to him from an Acer Computer Service Tech in India that he wanted me to load onto his netbook. Somehow Seimi got the language wrong when he setup his computer and it speaks Korean now. I loaded the recovery disk that immediately wiped out the OS and wouldn’t accept the next two disks that were part of the process, dang! It was suppose to be a quick install but for some reason the dang disks that were sent to him were corrupt. I kept trying to reload the disks but it just wasn’t going to happen. So now there isn’t an operating system on his laptop, bummer! I told him I was sorry but there was nothing I could do and to send the laptop back to wherever he bought it and tell them it’s malfunctioning and needs repair. For some reason I never trusted Acer products and now I have confirmation of my suspicions!
J (name withheld) came by with a big bag of seeds for my bird feeder that she bought today and gave it to me as a gift! That was mighty nice of her! Now those little birds can fatten themselves up for the winter; I never knew that these little critters could chow down that much food. She also said that she was able to download all the updates for her new Dell laptop by herself! I knew she could do it and I gave her a big hug!
I went over to Stoney’s to take a nice hot shower and feel human again. Roger Smith came by with a pot of ham and beans that he cooked up in his new crock pot. We ate them all up! We sat around yapping about how alienated we feel in our own country as Congress gives to the rich and takes from the poor; kind of like a reverse Robin Hood if you know what I mean.
The sun had already set when I got home but I decided to go for my evening walk anyways. I watched “My Name is Earl”; read a little from the astronomy textbook while I downloaded a 39Meg update of Avast anti-virus; on dialup it took two hours. I kind of nodded off for a bit and while my mind was drifting here and there I came up with the makings for a new song! I got up and grabbed the guitar and started the process of putting it all together. I called Judy Ruggles to tell her about it.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
