Saturday - OTR.
Down in San Diego. Working about the house - fixing a broken sprinkler
head, fixing a broken 12V light (successful, but the circuit is dead),
replacing light bulbs recessed in the high ceilings, fluorescent bulbs
in bathrooms, shopping, etc.
Book #21 was Orphans of Chaos, by John C. Wright. This was light escapist reading, good for reading at poolside...
So, I'm back on track for a minimal reading schedule again. So far this year we have:
- OTR. Down to San Diego. We had planned on leaving at noon, but so
that my friend could go with her mom to the hospital for a checkup we
left at 9:00am (with about a half hours notice). Traffic was decent,
and we met up at the hospital, and the ladies went in for the
consultation while I waited outside. After an hour or two we were done
there and headed back to Scripps Ranch. In the evening we relaxed,
watched some TV, and did a bit of household cleaning, dishes and such.

- Working on the app mostly. I got a weird call from US Bank:
apparently their computer filed our company as being owned by
non-resident Aliens, and I have to go and sign some paperwork alleging
Wednesday 15 May
- Back in town, pretty tired though.
Some issues came up with a job we worked last year, that we did the
writing of Specifications for, so we needed to do a bit of field
investigation and help the county respond to their building contractors issues.
Essentially our advice was along the lines of: they need to just go do the job they contracted to do. Still, a days pay for me, out of the blue. Yay!
Book #20 was The Hermetic Millennia, by John C. Wright. This is the sequel to last weeks #19, Count to a Trillion.
Left behind on Earth by his beloved Space Princess while she flies to
to the Star Cluster M33 (and back) to Save Mankind, our Hero puts
himself into Cold
Sleep to wait for her (so that they can resume their Interrupted
Honeymoon). But he keeps getting Woken Up! The story spans about 10,000
years, and it's still 50,000 until the little lady returns, so I'm
expecting some more sequels.
Worked around the house a bit in the morning, then headed south. I was
going to meet up with our Inspector, but the timing was off.
the evening there was a nice party for a friend celebrating his
birthday. It was, in theory, a surprise, but he pretty much guessed
that things were up...
Last week, while we were doing
a field inspection Tim & I noticed a jet, all in white, fly over. I
thought it might be some sort of military radar jet, but upon enlarging
the image it appears to be an Air France passenger plane, perhaps an
- It's really warming up, in the high 90's. I wouldn't be surprised if
we get more Red Flag warnings down in Thousand Oaks, but sufficient
unto the day....
We went out for a Mother's Day
lunch at George's.
It just recently opened, and as a result was not crowded at all,
despite it being Mother's Day. It was a Greek place, so I had a chicken
kabob, and we had a nice platter of various Greek things as well. Very
Down to Ventura tomorrow.
