Saturday - There is a little local newspaper,
the Lake & Valley Gazette (no web page).
It recently had an interesting article about "The Big One" and the need to
prepare. It specifically reports a Sheriff's Deputy tasked with
emergency preparedness making a speech in which he mentions that "three days
supply" is not enough for the Antelope Valley residents, they need a "30
days supply" and they they expect the roads to Los Angeles to be cut
Well, I have a lot of stuff, though most of it is over in a container at the
new house, protected not so much by the lock on the container as by the
three dimensional tetris the boys performed with all of my belongings to get
them all to fit. It's pretty packed in.
Friday 2 February
Friday - Book
#5 was Hammer
of the Witches (The Covenant Chronicles Book 2) by Kai Wai
Cheah. Eh. I really liked the first book, but this was just kind
of a let down.
I have a Japanese science fiction book, A Wild Sheep Chase, that several
individuals have highly recommended. I'm only about four or five pages
in, but, so far, meh...
Thursday 1 February
Talked to my brother M briefly, he's going in for a colonoscopy next week.
No problems, just a preventative medicine thing I guess.
Cleaning up in the house again, this time in the kitchen. It's kind of
scary when "the clean room" turns out to be so disgusting. Ughh.
And it is, of course, a fairly complicated room, with lots of stuff to tape
off and cut in, after cleaning and before painting.
My friend C mentioned that she'd been in my old neighborhood lately, and
that it looked like the new owners were just now installing new
carpet. About a month....
Wednesday 31 January
Wednesday - It was the Super Blue Blood
Moon eclipse today, in the early am. Nice copper eclipse, one of the
best I've seen. After a spotlight bright full moon in the early
evening made eyepatches necessary to sleep.
There is some Saticoy inspection working coming up, probably the week after
next. A couple of dozen of Wye's that need repairing. It
shouldn't take long, unless it includes a few of the really deep ones.
A good change to check on the boat and stay a couple of nights.
Tuesday - Watched the Falcon Heavy launch,
absolutely flawless. The boosters landing seemed like an
animation... Aaron, Scott and myself all watched from his house, I got
a phone call from my brother in Carson City. This is the most excited
I've been about a space launch in decades.
Monday - Falcon Heavy launch tomorrow, should
be something else.
Sunday - I did some shopping in the morning
with S, picked up a few things. Coffee beans, for one thing.
Four and a half coffee drinkers go through a lot of beans. ( The 1/2 being
one of the boys that sometimes indulges. The others prefer juices and
S came by and along with Aaron's wife L, and they had a good time cleaning
in the kitchen, putting in shelf paper, and the like. It is so dirty
that **anything** is a help. I wouldn't personally to eat off a plate or cup
that touched anything in the this kitchen before being cleaned repeatedly!
