Thursday 25

Thursday 25- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 49 and 72 degrees, W winds 4 to 20 MPH with gusts to around 50, humidity around 22 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Sunny, with a high near 69. Windy, with a northwest wind 29 to 32 mph decreasing to between 20 and 23 mph. Winds could gust as high as 48 mph. Friday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 46. Breezy, with a northwest wind 20 to 23 mph decreasing to between 9 and 12 mph. Winds could gust as high as 33 mph.”
The internet is back up and I was able to complete some of the stuff I wasn’t able to complete last night; yea for me! I still don’t know the reason why it went down yesterday and I am puzzled that I was only able to load some websites but not others.
The wind picked up during the day so I stayed inside working on that old HP laptop and loaded MSDOS onto it. I like playing around with old operating systems but I’m a little rusty at the command prompt.
I went for my evening walk listening to Astro 10: General Astronomy: Tools of the Trade.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” starting chapter on Venus; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” about chromosomes and chromatin.
I started the new book “Chasing the Dime” by Michael Connelly. It is mystery about a guy who created a high tech company and loses his girlfriend because he’s always working in the lab. She kicks him out and he gets a new apartment with a new telephone number that had previously belonged to a hooker. He keeps getting calls from men visiting her website and he wonders why the number is still on her website and what has happened to her. So he goes to investigate and does a very sloppy job of it: leaving fingerprints all over her apartment that’s been vacant for a few months, opening her mail, and not notifying the police. One error I found was that he has a twelfth floor apartment in Santa Monica that looks onto the ocean. In his book he is awaken by the light of morning Sun shining on him from the window; the Sun rises in the east and his apartment window would face west. There are other errors, too!
I did my stretches and lifted weights, 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!
