One thing about being a medical oddity is that I have a lot fewer problems with cold than most people. While out clearly my driveway of snow today, temperature 28 Degrees above zero, 19 above windchill, I had on a pair of light cloth slip-ons and a pair of light work gloves. By the time I was done, about an hour later, my feet were getting hot even though the shoes were pretty wet, and my hands were getting hot even though the gloves were a bit wet. By the time I finish shoveling the side wa ...More Read More

Interesting, a moderator was reading, or at least, checking my blog at the unseemly hour of 4:08 AM this morning. Must have a very bad case of insomnia. Perhaps a link to a quiet rendition of Clare de Lune or Brahm's Lullaby would be in order, along with a nice glass of warm milk. For me, coffee works much better than warm milk, but then I have been drinking coffee since my mother was spiking my baby bottle with it.

Well, since other people are at least looking at the blog, if not comment ...More Read More

I never did get to read the books that I loaded on the iPad, or watch the first episode of "The Lone Ranger" that I loaded as well. I was just in too much pain for most of the two flights to do anything but fight the pain. Painkillers helped a little, as did an ice pack, but still no fun flying. I did read a few paragraphs in T. E. Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom while sitting in Phoenix waiting to Southwest to get us a plane. We departed an hour late, and by the time my wife had the car ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Loaded Books on iPad Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #76 New January 25th, 2019 03:15 PM
I finally figured out how to load books onto an iPad, so I will have something a bit easier to read while flying home tomorrow. This will be our last trip to the Silicon Valley area. Flying is getting more and more difficult for me, with the continued narrowing of the seats, and shrinking of leg space. At times, some regulation is not a bad idea, and airline seating would be a good area to address.

I am not sure if after Sunday night I will delete the blog or just stop posting. I presume ...More Read More

Still chugging along here, and thinking that I need to out-live most if not all of my male ancestors by a few years. Given my health, that is not a sure thing at all, besides living that many more years with a fair amount of pain. The pain is wearing me out after approaching 43 years.

Still no feedback from anyone over whether I should continue the blog. Sunday night is approaching.

I have begun writing up two of the sub-sectors of the Piper-Norton Out Rim Sector, the Sword and the Sar ...More Read More

Today was not a good day. Then a lot of snow back home along with frigid temperatures to greet us on Saturday, then more snow probable on Sunday Night to Monday morning as well. Just a lot of battering for my legs with the snow.

Last night, I made a post just before going to bed, actually I fell asleep with the computer on right after I finished the post, then woke up cold at about 3:50 AM because I was a bit cold. The temperature did drop to 4 Degree Fahrenheit this morning, that is a minus 16 Celsius. and is now 9, so a minus 13 Celsius.

I finished the post at 1:50 AM my time, and it was checked at !:54 AM my time, based on the Who Viewed this Post menu. I did check to see if any changes had been made in reputat ...More Read More

Well, I got through my daughter's birthday party without major problems, but right now, my legs and feet are not happy with the beating they have taken over the past two days, and hopefully, the ibuprofen will kick in soon.

I have a bunch of things to do tomorrow to get ready to leave on Tuesday, but I will see how many I get done. One thing that I would like to do is get all of the world date for the Sword Sub-sector off of the iPad and on my laptop, so that I can work on it while in Calif ...More Read More

Hopefully, no moderator will object to the following post.

After the roughly 9 inches of snow on Friday night/Saturday morning, I had to clear the driveway, as we are having family over later today for my daughter's birthday party. She is now 26 as of yesterday. She does share the birthday with Edgar Allen Poe, but I have not figured out how old he would be. I do like his writings.

Even with the much better snow thrower, it took quite a while, and I posted 1.2 miles in walking on my ph ...More Read More

I am giving serious consideration to deleting this blog, as I really do not like having someone looking over my shoulder to make sure that I do not violate some undefined rule, or the required "politically correct" viewpoint. I figure I will leave it a week more.

Basically, if any readers think that I should keep the blog up, kindly let me know. I might continue to use it for updates on my Piper-Norton Out Rim Sector, and maybe some other game ideas. As for personal viewpoints, that will ...More Read More
