Today is National Cat Day...

What ?

 Yes, today, October 29th, is National Cat Day.

Didn't we just have that?

No, that was World Cat Day on August 8th.

Can't get too much of a good thing :)

Here's an interesting page I found on the internet today:

I think we'll have tuna sandwiches for lunch.

Rainy Days

Typical... You are doing real well on a project and something messes it up, trying to interfere with your momentum.  It has been rainy here for about a week. Our painting plans have brought much needed rain to the island.

This weather has given us a bit of time to get our new computer up and running. That project has also had delays... lost in the mail for 5 weeks followed by two months of crappy, practically non-existent internet service. So over the past couple of days we have: cloned the hard drive to a Samsung SSD; removed the original HDD and replaced it with the SSD (Hurray, it works!); downloaded some necessary software; removed the CD/DVD drive and replaced with a 7200rpm hybrid drive in a CD drive adaptor (Hurray, it works, too!).

Today it is very gray and overcast. No rain so far but I did hear thunder at 7am. If we can't work outside on the boat I plan to work on my installation of Foobar2000 and create a skin for it that will be useful and attractive. Then do one for Bob's computer, too.

Also, I might splice up a new painter for our dinghy.

So it goes...

How did this slip by?

I know October 9th was a busy, hectic day but how did I miss this event?

John Lennon was born 75 years ago on October 9th 1940.

December 8th will be the 35th anniversary of his assassination. Wow, I remember the shock of that!

The excellent website Coverville, The Cover Music Radio Show has a 90-minute show of John Lennon covers. Click HERE to check it out. I just downloaded it and look forward to listening.

Into The Past With Back To The Future...

As you probably know already, today, October 21, 2015, is "Back to the Future Day."

Thirty-ish years ago Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) time-traveled to this very day... Where are the hover boards?  Still no jet packs, either.

Do you remember where you were when you saw this film in the cinema?

Amazon has a good deal today for the trilogy. Only $22.98 for the collection.

So it goes...
