Saturday - Pretty darn tired. Mostly
just laid around the house. I had an invite from friends to go to the
Los Angeles Air Show going on this weekend, but took a rain check.
I've seen a lot of air shows...
A happy 15th anniversary to the blog here.
Friday - Dry and warm
during the day, but getting cool and a bit windy in the late afternoon.
Tim called in the morning, and said he and the family were down with some
sort of respiratory infection, and wouldn't be coming. Well, can't be
helped. I am sure the Brown's will be sorry to miss them, but no-one wants
to get sick. And traveling with sick children, even pre-teens, isn't
Upon hearing of his cancellation a few other people canceled (I guess I'm
the b-list host...) and someone else canceled due to sickness...
The H family came by, and S, but that was about it. Still we had burgers and
fixings, and pie, and everyone had a good time I think.
My 'BBQ of Death' did it again, this time there were flames shooting out of
the bottom that almost burned through the propane line and were far to close
to the tank proper. Gahhh. We finished cooking everything inside
instead. It was too darn cold outside by that time anyway.

Thursday 23 March
Working away on this and that. Not much to say.
Wednesday 22 March
Wednesday - Brisk out.
I've been hearing aircraft practicing for the upcoming air show all week.
I'll have to see if I can get a shot of the Thunderbirds passing over the
Tuesday - Cooling down for sure.
Working away on this and that.
Book #14 was The
Hanging Tree (Rivers of London), by Ben Aaronovitch. The
police procedural / occult mystery stuff continues. Enjoyable.
Monday - Working away on various things.
Cleaning still, though the big stuff is done.
Working on the app, a little bit on the finite element stuff.
Sunday - Another warm day, but as the
weathermen warned, not a warm as yesterday. It's supposed to get
cooler all week, maybe even some rain!
Glen and I did the upstairs carpets. Rather than carry everything
downstairs we just stashed assorted bit of furniture and bric-a-brac
in one of the small bedrooms and will clean that room at some future date.
I was actually locked inside the downstairs hall bathroom for a while - the
knob's been sticky for a while, and finally locked up completely.
Fortunately I was rescued fairly quickly, but I guess I need to swap out all
of them - this is the third or fourth knob to do this - they are all about
30 years old and I guess the interior works are failing.
I took the boys and S out for burger's, to thank them for helping me out
with this stuff...
