Tuesday 05

Tuesday 05- I did my stretches.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 39 and 62 degrees, slight breeze, humidity around 36 percent, cloudy skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 64. North northwest wind between 6 and 8 mph. Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 39. West northwest wind between 3 and 7 mph.”
I was working in the yard when I saw my neighbor Ron M. driving his large black truck down the road and I went to my driveway to wave him down to say howdy. I showed him my tile job I did to the floors of my house and he was mighty impressed (probably because he thought I wasn’t capable of doing such a fine job). He stayed an hour or so and we discussed many things.
UPS drove up as I was practicing my guitar to deliver my Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 netbook that I order on the 31th of last month. I finished playing the guitar and then opened up the box and setup the netbook. It has this facial recognition program called VeriFace that scans your face and you use it to login. I gave it a try and it took around ten minutes of me sitting still staring at the webcam until it was satisfied. Then I went to logon and it scanned me and said it was me, which I already knew, and logged me into Win 7; pretty dang cool!
I went on my evening walk listening to a new Astronomy Cast lecture: Ep. 157: Constellations.
Stoney called and said to come on over at 4pm that he made some SOS (chipped meat in gravy on top of toast). I haven’t had that in a long while. The Army used to serve it up towards the end of the month when food supplies were low. It was my favorite then but most of the other soldiers didn’t like it.
I got back home to read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” and “The Cell: a Molecular Approach”.
I watched “NOVA: Killer Subs in Pearl Harbor” on PBS. It was about five Japanese Navy Mini Subs that attacked our ships on Dec 7th 1941. Only one Mini Sub made it into the harbor to fire its torpedoes and that one sub was the only one not accounted for and remained a mystery until now (the rest either ran aground or were fired upon and sunk).When I was a kid I was always fascinated with submarines and my favorite sub movie was “Run Silent Run Deep” (1958) with Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster.
I played with my new netbook for a spell then did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote my column for the newspaper and sent it in; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
