It’s cold outdoors; but its warm inside. Partly because I turned the heat a couple of degrees so it wasn’t so drafty. And partly because we decided to make our own warmth. Not much to do except stay in and wait until it’s not so bitter cold. If you are inside the vortex, say warm and stay safe. And, if you are not, enjoy your good fortune (and the accompanying warmth).
It was easy to select a movie for today since this is all we had. I have identified a suitable replacement camera. Regrettably, I’ve decided to wait until the price goes down. (Or until I can find something else suitable that is significantly cheaper.) It’s hard to justify spending a so much money on a camera that doesn’t get a lot of use. It’s a “new arrival” right now. Maybe it will be cheaper after Christmas.
It wasn’t “significant”; but, it was still depressing to see snow on the ground and ice on the roads. It already seems like January even though its only November. We’re hoping for a mild winter; which doesn’t seem to likely considering how cold and blustery November has been. After last year’s cold snowy winter, almost anything would be an improvement.

We’ve been rowing a lot this summer since it’s been mostly hot and dry. Occasionally we’ve had “scattered” thunderstorms; but not enough rain to make the river high and unrowable. And, when it did rain, it didn’t last long enough that we couldn’t row afterwards on these long summer days. according to my log I’ve rowed 18 consecutive days which is the most I’ve done. I know that streak will come to an end, so we’re going to enjoy these long days while we can.
I finally fixed a weird issue that I have been having with a computer that I upgraded to Windows 10. The “fix” was amazingly simple. Diagnosing the problem was the hard part. And, even though I know what’s happening, I still haven’t figured out why. I don’t like mysteries. Especially technical ones.
We had a brief taste of Spring today. One of those rare days February days where we could open all the windows during the day and get outside in the afternoon. I’m sure that we will be back to bundling up soon. But today was great. Even if it was only for one day.
There were TWO updates to WordPress this week and its only Tuesday. One was “normal”. And the other was an emergency because of what the first update broke. I know that its free software and their revenue comes from their … Continue reading
