Saturday 10

Saturday 10- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 46 and 77 degrees, SSW winds 10 to 14 MPH, humidity around 13 percent, somewhat clear skies with lenticular clouds flowing off the mountains to the west.
According to the National Weather Service: “Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 74. West wind 6 to 9 mph becoming south between 18 and 21 mph. Winds could gust as high as 31 mph. Sunday Night: A 30 percent chance of rain after 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 48. Breezy, with a southwest wind between 14 and 22 mph, with gusts as high as 33 mph.”
I went over to Stoney’s after Roger Smith called and told me that the locks on the garage were missing. Everything looked like it was there and nothing I or Roger could see was missing, except the locks. We found new locks and put them on, but the mystery remains; who took the locks?
I called Family and Friends throughout the day. Seimi came by to collect a book he had lent me that I haven’t read yet, so he could give it to another friend of his to read. We chatted for a spell and he mentioned that Brother Michael (I’ve never met him but I can see his house from where I live) had been found dead in his home after many months without anybody seeing him. Only after a neighbor found his truck when the strong winds of two weeks ago had blown down some plywood that had sheltered his truck from view, and called the police. On the front of his house there are these large words painted in black: He Is Risen. When he first moved up here he handed out twenty dollar bills to some folks in our area, otherwise he kept to himself. I hope he finally found peace!
I went for my evening walk listening to Astro 10: General Astronomy: How Stars Shine: Cosmic Furnaces.
Bob Vandenberg called needing assistance with a very bad Trojan Virus called “Personal Security Virus” that is a fake anti-virus program. I spent an hour on the phone with him trying to get his pictures and docs off his system but his CD drive wouldn’t recognize the CD, dang! I had him go out to WalMart and pick up a USB thumb drive and we will try that tomorrow. I’ve played around with this fake ant-virus program many times in the past and the best thing to do is get your files off and do a clean install. I will try some new tricks I found first but it seems that there is always some remnants of this program lingering behind to restart again. So I found that a fresh install saves time and a lot of frustration; I will write about our efforts tomorrow.
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” started the chapter on Jupiter; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” about The Fidelity of Replication.
I spent the remainder of the evening reading “U is for Undertow” by Sue Grafton, and read it late into the night.
I did my stretches, 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!
