Maybe we should have a moment of silence for the passing of the sword room. A sad day indeed. Always wanted one. Maybe if I ever get all the boxes and crates cleared out of the spare bedroom...

Might be interested in the sais...

Steady rain for over an hour now.
Nothing spectacular...the good kind.

Relishing the cool air!
(no RTLSNK...not the stuff you put on hotdogs)

Hi Arkers!

Wow, busy day, the sword room is no more.
Still have to take down about 47 assorted hangers,
and then putty the holes in the walls.
Will do that tomorrow. Time now for dinner.
Just had a really big boomer go over us.
Ran the sprinklers this morning for 3 hrs too.
Just like washing your car, works every time.
Back later.

Okay, so...I'm kinda late getting back.
You'd think it was Monday or something around here.

589. Ossqss,
TWC is still using that song? Maybe I ought to make them a new mix CD. They've been playing that on and off forever!

Pottery,

Good that you are still seeing to young Alex's training. No telling how his hopes and dreams will evolve into over the coming decade, but good that his Grandpa is at his side.

guygee,

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by!

I know exactly what you mean.
I'm inland...Highlands county, but precipitation has been feast or famine of late. Temps here haven't been really out of line the last month, but the sun has been particularly brutal.

I avoid I75 and especially I95 as much as possible. They are bad enough on a nice sunny day. Throw in a thunderstorm and it's complete chaos.

Sounds like you are building a pretty good music system. I don't have a dedicated box at the moment. Just have a lot of tunes and movies on an external hard drive of the desktop machine and I can access them outside with the laptop over the network. (have some decent speakers out on the deck to plug to) or can take it wherever I'm working on the property.

Used to plug into a pair of 18 inch 3 way stage monitors and the rack setup from my drumming days, but lately Angie doesn't like me rattling the china so much.

Was cool to sit in on the Rover landing last night. From what I could tell all went according to plan with plenty of fuel to spare. A truly wacky procedure with little room for error, but then again, I'm glad they came up with something better than the old beach ball landings.

Very impressive that they pulled it off and maybe we'll learn some cool new stuff.

Patrap posted a series of pics on LowerCal's blog that are worth a look.

Hey Rob! Saw your reply on skyepony's blog the other night, decided to come to your blog for a change to reply. Yes it seems to be another atypical rainy season this year, not nearly as active as many I remember. Sunsets are about all I have been seeing these days as I run out of T-shirts and get driven indoors in the heat of the day. Seabreeze rain machine seizing up a bit, must stay alert for trends in the coming years. Meanwhile suffering from something like cabin fever similar to the spring fevers suffered in late February during the snowy winters of my youth growing up just south of Lake Erie.

Took a drive down to West Boca yesterday for a long-overdue visit with relatives. Drove down I-95 through two different sea-breeze storms blowing in...visibility down to near zero. The worst part is the people who think that just because they cannot see the road, maybe it is not there anymore, so they slow down to 30 or maybe just stop. Noo! Was following a ever slowing line of traffic when a car with Quebec license plates passes me and then just cuts me off to get off the road in their panic. They have probably driven through blizzards with whiteouts but the Florida mobile Niagra Falls effect was just too intimidating. My reaction was to pass all those dangerous frightened potential speedbumps and find my open slot to drive out into the sunshine again.

Caught a great concert on the way home, Jerry Garcia Band, 1980. Was an unusual configuration of JGB because it was clearly Phil Lesh on bass. A very long cover of Eric Clapton's "After Midnight" carried me past route 60 through the Brevard County line all the way to my home exit on Eau Gallie Blvd. There was an interesting "Eleanor Rigby" jam in the middle...gotta find me a copy of that show.

Current project: putting together a linux-based digital music box with 10 TB total external drives full of flacs and a trusty old M-Audio Delta 44 soundcard, digital 24bit-96KHz out into custom D/A then to my stereo system.

Very nice blog you have here!
Stay lossless my friend!

A Tune courtesy of the weather channel local forecast. Do ya think they really know what this song is actually referring to?

Good tune,,,, but the weather channel local forecast? WT?

You all have now entered the random button zone :P

OK, so it has a "thin" atmosphere. :)

95.32 % Carbon Dioxide
2.7 % Nitrogen
1.6 % Argon
.13 % Oxygen
.08 % Carbon Monoxide

Trace elements:

Nitric Oxide, Molecular Hydrogen, Neon, HDO,
Krypton, Formaldehyde, Xenon, Hydrogen Peroxide
and Methane.

And we are thinking of going there to live ?
I think I'll take my chances here. Even with the co2.....

Had a Good Day today.
Alex and Amy came for lunch and stayed late. Nice.
Made a bow&arrow, and showed Alex how to shoot it properly.
But he says he wants to be an Olympic Diver.
So that's OK too, I guess!

Showers today, but cooler. Nice.

The SW had two close calls in last two days. Boogie board at the ankle, out of control, close. Today wind picked up an umbrella with tapered end aimed at the BW. She caught the riibs with her feet and the sharp end of the stick against the center of the four quads and a book.

BTW, that rover is coming in at 13,000 miles per hour.

Has a big parachute that is supposed to slow it down.

I didn't think Mars had an atmosphere.

Don't you need air for a parachute?

yuk yuk yuk

She never gives me a bad time, that's why she's called SugarBear! :)

Had a busy busy day and may try and watch the landing myself.

I'm awake that early most of the time anyway.

Will check in later on.
Member Since: September 3, 2008 Posts: 0 Comments: 21196
BTW...if you call me later, you'll likely have to talk to M'lady.

I plan to go to bed shortly after dinner so as to watch the Mars landing...(see LowerCal or Skyepony's blogs for link) on NASA TV.

Wackiest landing sequence I've ever seen...reminds me of something me and my fellow rocket enthusiast would have designed in Jr. High. Hope it goes well...just glad I'm not riding it.

Still...beats an air bag landing!

Not a bad day.
Cooking the last 3 beef tenderloins on the barbie.

RTL,
Tried giving you a call, but you were at choir practice.
Had to talk to SB instead. Not really a bad deal!

Told her I was going to give you a bad time, but now she would have to do it!

Fix those holes in the walls.
Marital bliss depends on it!

LOL

But, as you can see...pretty clear skies in central Florida.
(sorry, can't quite get you in the frame Pottery!)



Headed outside for a bit.

Didn't your momma ever tell you that Weekends are for sleeping late and snuggling?

You people get up waaay too early!

As for fashion. I'll stick with basic black.
Solves the question of does this go with that and who cares?

If I'm feeling particularly festive, maybe I'll put on a red Columbia shirt.

Coffee on the deck then breakfast.

Morning Arkers!

My favorite line from the Pink Panther Movies was when Peter Sellers knocks over a big statue and it smashes this lady's piano she says "that's a priceless Steinway" and Peter Sellers looks at it and says "not any more".:)

Looks like we might get some rain today!





And when Inspector Cluseau is confronted by a large dog, he says to Sellers "Does your dog bite?"
"No" says Sellers.
The dog bites Cluseau..
"I thought you said your dog does not bite!"
"But that's not MY dog" says Sellers.

heheheheheh

"Being There" is Sellers last movie.
It's the story of a very simple man who spends all his time tending a garden and watching TV.
Then a series of strange circumstances come along and he ends up becoming President.
He says the most foolish things which the media cannot understand, so they think he is a Genius.
Watch it.

Morning Snake and Arkers,

Went against my rules and drank some hot vodka again.

Got all the hatches open this morn, finally some breeze has kicked up and it has cooled off a bit.

Well, Pottery, we've seen you in pink shoes.
chartreuse would prolly not be that bad!
:o)

Ski,
Good for you. Catch lots of lobby's.
Enjoyed the bandit vid.
Dated a redneck girl for a short while that drove that exact car.

I had a 70 T/A and an 80.
Installed a computerized water injection system on the 80 that let me crank the Turbo boost...until the computerized thingy failed and melted the pistons. Put the Ram Air IV from the 70 in the 80 and it rocked. On blocks in the barn now waiting restoration...one day.

As for the redneck girl...last I knew, she worked at Gilley's in TX...but that was a while ago.

Watching a lovely sunset with distant booming at the moment.

Back later.



Er, Um, Shoes don't count.

You need to read up on your latest edition of "Runway Trends".
Which is not a magazine about airplanes as you might have thought. Or asphalt, perimeter lighting, fire trucks or radar.

In fact, you might be interested to learn that there are several of these types of mags around here. Ancient Person loves them.
And I have to admit (but please don't tell ) that I took a furtive glance at one, and shoes seem to be "the thing" for the coming season.

I will try to ascertain just what "season" is being touted here, as I feel that it will give me a distinct advantage to know this, next time I am over on the main blog.
I can see it now....
"What do you guys think about 96L chances of coming to Miami as a cat 5?"
My response, " It needs help....Stilletto heels with chartreuse straps and hootchie-gucci patent leather purse with diamond clasp will do it!"

Actually, come to think of it, that reminds me of Peter Sellers in "Being There". See it, if you have not.
We could start a whole new trend over on the main blog by talking Peter Selleries....

Boggles the mindless.

Morning Arkers and Arkets!

Atlantic seems to be getting really busy, eh?

Todays mission is to dismantle the "Sword Room" so we will have an extra bedroom again in case we have visitors from Florida running from a cane!

Should only take me, oh, say, three days!
I have a lot of swords on the walls. :)

I have a nice double bladed five foot long two handed twenty pound Scottish Claymore I'm saving for someone. Will hide that one in the closet in case they show up here!

Better get started, SugarBear says she's not putting any bedroom furniture in there until the walls don't have any sharp things hanging from them. :)

Lets see, 20 swords, a few battle axes, some maces, lots of daggers, a few rapiers, a couple of spears, two hunting bows, some short swords, 25 Bowie knives, some Sais, some Nunchucks, a few Samuri Swords, oh, and four sabers and a cutlass. Thats all I think. :)

Anybody want any of this stuff?
Get your order in soon! :)

Sounds like you got an excellent trade for her.

Actually, green is not too bad.
Pink, purple, chartreuse, I have problems with those.

I was watching some of the women's gymnastics.

Then she's southbound, hammer down...

This is sad, I just laughed Pepsi all over my keyboard after looking at my own darn green man cartoon.

Back later, have to clean it up, and then take a nap.

Took down all the Bowie knives, the daggers, and the short swords.
Still a long way to go.

And you wonder why you have a RED folder?
Take some pics before you take them all down.
Would love to see the collection...email me.

Can't believe you're getting rid of the old battle axe.

So far, Ernesto doing what I said it would. Too early to worry much about Florence. Nice to know your getting my room ready!
Angie would be disappointed that the blades were gone though.
:o)

Okay...gotta go see if the coffee's ready.


Get rid of her by all means.
Keep SB though.....

heheheheh.

Spent the morning immersed in bushes and nettles.
Found a nice big bunch of Bananas though.
Watched some of the Sprints.
3 of our guys through to the next round. So far so good.

Bolt, Blake, Gatlin & Co. are running like quicksilver though.
Should be a Brilliant next round.
