Saturday 02

Saturday 02- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 36 and 64 degrees, slight breeze, humidity around 28 percent, clear skies; just a beautiful day!
According to the National Weather Service: “Sunday…Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 60s. Light wind. Sunday Night…Mostly clear. Lows in the upper 30s. Light wind.”
J (name withheld) called saying that she has tried everything but cannot log into her Gmail account. She brought her laptop over and right away I found that she had missed spelled her user ID and was able to login. I made a few jokes about that one to her.
I watered my plants and did some yard work. I called Family and Friends, and practiced my guitar. Then I was off to Stoney’s for lunch. He had called earlier inviting me over. After I left I stopped by Roger Smith’s to see if he had gotten a modem for his desktop; he did. I told him if he has any problems to give me a call.
I had downloaded three Podcasts earlier in the day and listened to them while I went for my walk: Ep. 166: Multiverses, Ep. 165: Doppler Effect, and Ep. 164: Inside the Atom. I may listen to them again tomorrow.
I again read aloud from the astronomy text book about: the Doppler Effect; redshift is receding, blueshift is coming at you. Also the lowest temp is -273 degrees Celsius which is 0 Kelvin, so water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius and boils at 100 degrees Celsius, where as water freezes at 273 K and boils at 373 K; just add 100. And read aloud from the textbook “The Cell: a Molecular Approach”: I feel kind of like an idiot trying pronounce the words of biology: Eukaryote, Prokaryote, Phospholipids, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae (which is Yeast), and other unworldly words that I won’t get into. I also read “365 Starry Nights” but I’m not going to mention this anymore in my posts because I have been reading from it every day for the last few years. I didn’t watch any TV, yea for me!
I want you all to know that tomorrow the 3rd: Earth is at the perihelion of its orbit; closest to the Sun (91.5 million miles). Quadrantid meteor shower tomorrow night through early morning on the 4th!
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
