Thursday 14

Thursday 14- I was awoken at 7:45am by a bad dream. I just laid there and couldn’t go back to sleep when the phone rang (I usually have the dang ringer turned off). It was Ginger’s daughter Lola calling to say that their car is stuck in the dirt and can’t get it out. Okay, I said, I’ll be there in 15 minutes; good thing I left the ringer on! I grabbed my shovel and drove the Gross Polluter over to where they were stuck and dug them out. Lola may be a little late for school but they are mobile again.
I went back home and did my stretches and lifted weights; still too dang windy to go for a run.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 36 and 58 degrees, NW winds 14 to 23 MPH, humidity around 36 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 63. North northwest wind between 3 and 6 mph. Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 38. Light south southwest wind.”
I had to stay at home and wait for UPS to deliver a tuning device that clamps on to my guitar and four sets of strings, so I decided to make spaghetti. The first can of tomato sauce I opened exploded all over the place. I checked the expiration date and it was Aug 2007, yikes! I put the can outside for the critters (ants and such) and found a more recent can.
I practiced my guitar and then called Stoney to see how he was doing.
My friend Andrew called to say he is back from London and is staying in Los Angeles. We yapped for almost an hour about the environment; it’s snowing in London right now!
Too windy for an evening walk so I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today was about radio astronomy. “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” was about Enzymes as a biological catalysts.
I watched “Who Killed the Electric Car” on PBS. It’s about the GM EV1 electric car and its demise by the oil companies, GM, the California Air Quality Board, and our Government. GM took all the EV1s back that they had leased from satisfied customers and had them crushed! No wonder GM went belly up and we had to bail them out. Watching this movie will make you mad!
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
