Welcome to the Month of April

Welcome to the Month of April- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 38 and 60 degrees, NW winds 8 to 19 MPH, humidity around 17 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Sunny, with a high near 69. West northwest wind between 13 and 16 mph becoming calm. Winds could gust as high as 24 mph. Friday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 44. West southwest wind between 11 and 18 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph.”
I did some yard work and watered the plants. Then I messed around with my computers for a spell. The Windows 7 Ultimate product key that I bought off EBay a few months ago turned out to be bogus. I found out while doing an update. I had to reload the whole system from scratch and revert back to Windows 7 Starter. I should have known better, but I’m only out $11. I’m sure the culprit is long gone. I only fell for it because he told me he had left over product keys from his business that went belly up and needed to get rid of them. Oh well, live and learn!
I went for my evening walk listening to Astro 10: General Astronomy: The Moon, Mercury, and Venus.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” where I started the chapter on Mars; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” more about the sequencing of Yeast Genomes.
I read a few more chapters in “Skeleton Coast” by Clive Cussler. It’s about an old freighter that had its guts torn out and replaced with a lot of high tech equipment, a reinforced hull to withstand enemy fire, a state of the art engine that’s powered by salt water and electromagnetic fields that can bring the 560 foot vessel up to 50 Nauts, and a high tech weapons system. All of this is hidden beneath the exterior of the rusty and ramshackle old freighter. They (the corporation made up of ex-military Special Forces) use this vessel called the Oregon for special operations when they are called upon by governments to do the dirty work that they can’t legally perform. Right now they are selling illegal arms to rebels in the Congo. The AK47s have hidden in them transmitters so the rebels can be traced to where they hide in the jungle. The rebels traded them for diamonds and are trying to get the diamonds back by force by attacking the Oregon.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
