Last night Raymond built a fire. Mae was far enough away to avoid her bed catching fire from any bits that popped out but close enough to enjoy the heat.

Dry Skin

During the winter when the air is cold and the process of heating it also brings the humidity levels way down, sometimes my skin dries out badly.  Right now is one of those times.

Stuff Growing in My Head

     I’ve been sick for more than two months now, although for a while it was in my bronchia and larynx, couldn’t breath without choking and thus couldn’t sleep and I had no voice, that cleared up.      Then, it entered my sinuses and for about three weeks I had constant sinus headaches, but that […]

Shoreline and Agenda 21

A Lost Day

I started what an upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS to Ubuntu 14.10 on my old Mac Workstation today at 6:15 AM.  This was a project advertised as being three hours.
