Wednesday 31

Wednesday 31- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 41 and 61 degrees, west winds 12 to 34 MPH, humidity around 33 percent, cumulonimbus clouds here and there but no rain for us.
According to the National Weather Service: “Thursday: A 30 percent chance of showers after 11am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 58. Northwest wind between 6 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. Thursday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 39. West northwest wind between 8 and 11 mph.”
As soon as I was done with my run the wind started to blow really hard and the temperature dropped ten degrees or so. I decided that I’ll just stay inside, kick back, and mess around online surfing the web.
I came across some articles on old computer that caught my interest. A few of them I had or still have. I like old computers. I have a Radio Shack TRS Model 100-one of the first laptops. This is my third one that I bought five years ago. The first one I sold, and the second one I bought in the late 80s is still around and running but has a broken keyboard. Over at Club 100 they have a new device that plugs into the TRS 100 that accepts SD cards! That way you can put all your programs and files on it and transfer files to other computers. Pretty cool, but its $195, yikes! I don’t think I’ll be getting one of those soon. There is a chip I might get that is called the Ultimate ROM II that has a word processor and other productivity software I might get for $35.
I read and finished “Chasing the Dime” by Michael Connelly. Somehow our hero gets out of his predicament: murder, burglary, obstruction of justice, and an assortment of other crimes. It seems like the big pharmaceuticals had set him up so they could steal his formula that could change the way drugs are made by using molecular biology. It was well worth the read!
Ginger dropped me off a new book to read by Clive Cussler called “Skeleton Coast” and I read a few chapters of that. Cussler is one of my favorite authors.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night. Goodbye to March!
