Thursday 29

Thursday 29- I did my stretches, dang windy outside!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 45 and 59 degrees, NW winds 22-36 with gusts up to 50 MPH 0r more, humidity around 27 percent, mostly clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 66. North northwest wind between 16 and 18 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 47. North northwest wind between 11 and 16 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.”
I started off the day by updating the Copper Mountain Mesa Website but I didn’t upload it yet because it’s only Thursday; I’ll do that tomorrow.
The wind blew all day long so I stayed inside. I really wanted to start working on the patio but not in this wind. So I messed around with my computers. I ran Puppy Linux on my Asus Netbook and it actually found my USRobotics USB modem! Puppy Linux is on a live CD and I tried to install it on the hard drive but the GRUB boot loader couldn’t find it or probably I’m doing something wrong. This is an older version of Puppy so I’m downloading a new release which will take forever on dialup.
Too dang windy to go for my evening walk so I stayed inside and listened to Astro 10: General Astronomy: The Geometry of the Universe, and Einstein’s Biggest Blunder?
I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” more about Saturn’s moon Titan; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” RNA Polymerase and Transcription.
I started a new book “Sheba” (1995) by Jack Higgins. It takes place in Nazi Germany in March 1939 as Hitler begins his plans to invade Poland on September1. He wants to send the Brits a message by blowing up the Suez Canal and assigns it to an Admiral to come up with an idea on how to accomplish this before the invasion begins. The Admiral and his aid come up with a plan to have a German base at a hidden archeological site call Shea in the Arabian Desert and use a sea plane to carry mines and high explosives to the Suez. They use Spanish SS officers to purchase a Catalina and start a business in Dahrein to carry out their sinister plan. Meanwhile there’s an American archeologist who uses his boat to smuggle in the Gulf of Aden. He is met by this lovely lady who wants to hire him to find her lost her lost husband.
I did my stretches, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
