Monday 29

Monday 29- I did my stretches.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 52 and 79 degrees, SW winds 3 to 18 MPH, humidity around 13 percent, hazy skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Areas of blowing dust after 11am. Mostly sunny, with a high near 78. Windy, with a west wind 9 to 12 mph increasing to between 35 and 38 mph. Winds could gust as high as 55 mph. Tuesday Night: Areas of blowing dust before 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 52. Breezy, with a west southwest wind 26 to 29 mph decreasing to between 9 and 12 mph. Winds could gust as high as 40 mph.”
I went over to Mac’s to get the headlight casings off one of his junk trucks and banged my knuckle on some sharp metal causing it to bleed, dang.
I finished my taxes, wrote a check for my property tax, and wrote two more checks for my trucks registration and insurance. I put a stamp on each and drove to the mailbox and sent them on their way.
I went for my evening walk listening to Astro 10: General Astronomy: On the Shoulders of Giants. Lecture about Newton’s three laws and other accomplishments of Newton’s.
Miss Kula called and we yakked for a spell. Then Kevin called. He said that the Moon was just rising in the east as I watched the Sun set in the west. I checked my calendar to see if it was a full Moon but it said that it would occur tomorrow on the 30th. Something wasn’t right I thought. So I went online to my website that said it was a hundred percent full. The problem is that the calendars used the Universal Time for the Moon phases and we are 8 hours behind and it would be the 30th in Europe where the current Moon would be full but on the 29th here where we live.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” about Venus’s volcanisms; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” about the sequencing of Prokaryotic Genomes.
I didn’t work on my drawing tonight because I need to consider how I’m going to complete the coloring.
I read a few chapters of “Chasing the Dime” by Michael Connelly. Now it’s getting interesting for me. The porn thugs finally caught up with our hero and smashed his face in with a telephone, hung him over his twelve story balcony, and kicked him and broke a few ribs which punctured a lung. He ends up in the hospital for a few days having plastic surgery and is visited by a homicide detective who accuses him of murdering the missing prostitute that he was trying to find. He hires a criminal defense lawyer who tells him not to meddle in the case anymore, but does he take her advice: NO! Meanwhile at the company that he formed, a big investor is coming for a meeting to look over the technology that our hero created. And if this investor catches wind of the trouble our hero is in with the police, could pullout leaving the company in ruins.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
