Wednesday 17

Saint Patrick’s Day- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike. I’m feeling better today..
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 50 and 77 degrees, light breeze, humidity around 22 percent, sunny skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 76. North northwest wind between 5 and 8 mph. Thursday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 51. Breezy, with a northwest wind 8 to 11 mph increasing to between 20 and 23 mph. Winds could gust as high as 34 mph.”
I wrote my column for the newspaper and sent it to them.
I went to work on the headlights on the Gross Polluter and spent about an hour or so trying to figure it all out. I gave up on it because I haven’t got something to compare it to and I have to have it adjustable when I take it down to have it certified. I’m thinking maybe of getting a fuel efficient small car and putting the Gross Polluter on non-op for a spell. All the hoops I have to jump through with the DMV to get the Gross Polluter registered will take a while and I’d like to go visit my parents soon.
I went for my evening walk listening to a lecture of Professor Bloom’s Berkeley Course – Astro 10P: The Big Bang part2. If you’d like to listen to the whole astronomy course they are to be found here:
I practiced my guitar and then read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” more about the surface of the Moon; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” about Introns and Exons that are in eukaryotic genes (except yeast and a few others) and a very few prokaryotic genes.
I did some webwork; I enrolled in a HTML CSS class. I read another chapter in “Alien”.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.

I am just a guy out in the desert amazed at the things out here where I live, the folks I call my friends, and this that we call the Internet. I am excited to share them with you!
