I am fully aware that ALL things happen for a reason. Nonetheless, the Universe and I are arguing over this one.

Oh you still have no idea trust me. Hope you feel better.

Ditto on what Della said. Men have no idea. However, I hope your side feels better. That sounds like a nasty sneeze.

Miscostalot, just keep posting. You can do it. If you have the thoughts, get them out in the open.

I'm waiting for lunch.

I admit, and I do not speak for all men, but I tend to overreact to discomfort. King baby and all....

I have several spearheads and arrow heads that I have found on local beaches or stream beds. They are some of my most treasured possessions. Mesa, could you come take pictures of them and post them? I can't be bothered. It's pretty cool to find something like that, though. Spiritual.

Today I'll try to get through my taxes. It's on the to-do list at least. I had no income, kinda wondering if I even have to file. Thoughts? I guess I can research that.

Just a coolish gray day here. I think I'm in for the day - I wore myself out yesterday on the bluffs. (not my picture) Deception Pass, viewing San Juan Islands, at Rosario Beach. Those "islands" close to shore are deposits of lava from long ago, the whole area is scoured by glaciers and shows past up-thrusts from earthquake activity. Really interesting geological area. The further away ones are actual islands. It's a very low tide cycle right now so there were lots of tidal pools...more rock was showing than in this photo. This is my favorite rock beach, also a great scuba site.

Checking in this afternoon inbetween classes. Still need to grab lunch, so I need to head off. I hope everyone is having a great Friday.

Della-I'll trade you. We went from cold to hot and humid.

Weasel-got the biggest laugh out of the bush whisperer. Speaking of people able to work magic with bushes, I saw this and wanted to share.

Tang-like Canguy mentioned, make the sober weekend happen. You can do it. You have all of us here and the SR board to distract you if you're having cravings.

I have a day off today (maybe)! Only one day off this week, and I am stuck by the telephone for the next hour waiting to see if I need to go in and help out. One of my co-workers was (is) sick...

RPUer? I am ashamed to admit that I don't know schist from chert. I grew up in Hawaii, where the geology not only is fairly simple and obvious but also I took a local geology course at the University of Hawaii. Hawaiian volcanoes and lava flows are easy to understand because you can walk right up to them and see them happening. Here in the San Juan Islands, the geology is extremely complex both in appearance and history. Subduction zones and ice ages are somewhat mysterious, and there are no obvious strata or fossils.

They just called from work! I think they might survive...

I'm going to light a fire in the woodstove. It's not really that cold, but it's supposed to get cooler tonight and the fire is always motivating.

friday 1800 hrs in the uk ..

Getting on getting on … hmm think i might get out the takeaway menus and peruse them when mex-m8 comes over , when i move the diet and exercise will be changed ..

have left my Civ3 game on the windows laptop running i can go back it up later .. not bad for a 30 second hand machine .. was remarkably clean and had no wear on the touchpad ..
I have all kinds of old share ware and software on it .. i might copy the hard disk as after setting it up it seems a shame not to have it backed up , might never see some of the software programs again and with some of the old kit i deal with it's useful to have the software and a machine of the same era to work from .

keep on , m

Yo Biminiblue ~

Hey, I always got time for photographing old Artifacts. There's a Punchline in there somewhere!-)

I call the Pic below 'It Takes One To Know One'. Around my fav Colorado Reservoir. ~20 miles long. I plan to Fish and Hike it this Summer when Da Wife has her DrunkAzz Gal Pals take over the Ranchette, here, this Summer during long Weekends. Whatever... I got some Sober 'Catch Up Living' to do with a vengeance.

OK, away to clean and commission my lil Camping Trailer, and ensure All Systems Are Go. It's my 'Escape Route' equivalent to driving a 2nd Car to a sotted Wedding Reception. When the Drunks head in, I head out! As my High Tech Sales Palz used to say: 'Plan Your Work -> Work Your Plan'.

Sitting and waiting to leave work. Great pics, everyone. I haven't posted any lately.

Son seems to be improving. My mom says he's jumping around, playing a game on his Xbox. Hopefully that continues. I'll still be leaving work early.

Beautiful pictures abound! Thanks folks, very inspiring!

Have to work late today, meaning I'm going to wait to hit the road until tomorrow morning at 6am-ish. In the meantime, I'll have to make do with coffee on my patio this afternoon. I call my rooftop the "Volcano View Lounge":

My local Wal-Mart super center sells Italian pot pies. Mozzarella, ricotta, sausage and marinara all stuffed in a pot pie shell. I am going to beat the rush and begin advertising for a self help group to overcome this soon to be addiction.

I have nothing else important to share.
