Saturday 03

Saturday 03- I did my stretches.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 46 and 68 degrees, W-SW winds 11 to 19 MPH, humidity around 24 percent, mostly clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 69. Breezy, with a northwest wind 5 to 8 mph becoming southwest between 19 and 22 mph. Winds could gust as high as 33 mph. Sunday Night: A 20 percent chance of showers. Partly cloudy, with a low around 46. Breezy, with a west southwest wind 25 to 28 mph decreasing to between 14 and 17 mph. Winds could gust as high as 40 mph.”
I was up late last night after I got an email from Apple that the iPad 3g was up for preorder on their site. I’d like to get one because it can connect to At&T’s unlimited internet for $30. But I want to make sure I can use Skype to make calls on it and then get rid of my cell phone. I really need something faster than dialup so I can watch classes instead of just listening to them.
I did some chores around the house and updated the Copper Mountain Mesa Website and sent out the Newsletter. Then I called Frank and Mary who are up here for the weekend. They said come on over, so I left my netbook downloading updates and drove on over.
I was only going to visit for a short spell but Mary cooked up some hamburgers and beans. We sat around the table outside yakking until the wind started to pick up and went inside. We watched a movie called “Hit Man” (2007) that was hard to follow and wasn’t very good; my brother Kevin called me later in the night and said that he saw it and liked it and my opinion of him went down a few notches.
I got back home just before sunset and read more chapters in “Skeleton Coast” by Clive Cussler. Now our heroes find a scheme by a mad scientist who is trying to heat the ocean’s currents off the coast of Africa causing hurricanes to increase in size. They found out that this mad scientist is responsible for the kidnapping of the biological researcher and his assistant. Also the Congo rebels have been tipped off about the transmitters in the weapons they sold to them by a Congo government official who is on the rebel’s payroll. Are heroes have just parachuted into the prison where the researcher and his assistant are held captive, but unfortunately get caught in the process of rescuing them and will be shot at sunrise. Things don’t look too well for our heroes right now!
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
