Friday 22

Friday 22- I did my stretches and ran two miles; a very cold and windy run!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 33 and 45 degrees, SW winds at 10 to 16 MPH, humidity around 61 percent, stratus clouds clearing at times with little rain.
According to the National Weather Service: “Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 53. West northwest wind between 10 and 13 mph. Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 34. West northwest wind around 8 mph.”
I was filling the bird feeder when I saw Ron the Graphics Guy drive by in his jeep. He stopped and told me that his friend couldn’t get to work this morning because HWY 62 was closed going down to Palm Springs.
It stopped raining enough for Ron Dehart to come by with some homemade spaghetti sauce that I later added to some pasta I cooked up especially for it. We played guitar and chatted for a spell.
It didn’t rain the rest of the day and my solar panels gave a good charge to my batteries. Yesterday I had to run the generator to get them charged up.
The wind was blowing cold so I didn’t go on my evening walk, but tomorrow is looking good for a walk!
I was transferring files for my HTML editor from Windows 7 to a laptop running XP because it wasn’t working properly. I got everything on the XP machine and loaded it up but the index file date was something I did on 10/31/09 and not the newest one. I went back to the Win7 HTML files and the index file had10/31/09, but when I started the editor it open with 01/07-10, weird! So I just copied it from the editor and pasted it to notepad and pasted into the XP laptop’s HTML editor. I do not know where nor couldn’t find where Win7 stored the updated HTML files, but all the recent pictures were there. This HTML editor I got in 1999 and works fine in XP.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” and “The Cell: a Molecular Approach”.
Roger Smith called asking help for a problem on his computer and we spent the next forty-five minutes trying to figure it out; had to do with his monitor and screen sizes. Finally we got it right just as my phone started beeping telling me that its battery was getting low.
I read “The Lost World” until late into the evening while the warmth from the woodstove heated the house.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
