A (mostly true) funny story I wrote about Mother's cat, Katt - Comments appreciated!

By: wanzewurld, 1:17 AM GMT on November 29, 2012

Mother had a stray cat show up at her back door some years back and, despite being feral but somehow in need of human connection, it would stare at her through the sliding glass patio door until she finally threw it some scraps, out of pity, after seeing it perched there for several days in a row. That was probably the wrong thing to do but a cat does do a pretty good job of catching varmints and this one did seem to suit her view of an ideal animal, showing no inc...

Humor unrelated to weather

Facebook as a vehicle of information

By: wanzewurld, 4:38 PM GMT on October 13, 2012

Well, I had a positive experience this past week; I posted an overflight of the ISS (International Space Station) with times, directions, and elevations for the Columbia Mississippi area on Facebook after I updated myself from www.heavens-above.com. I had no idea that anyone would be interested and said so when I posted it. An extremely bright overpass, though, was worth sharing for the many people who had never seen one or had seen it and didn't know what it was....

Satellites and such

Later on after Isaac

I just tried to upload 5 photos of a phenomena I'd neither seen nor heard of ever before! The photos were taken with my Canon 60D and were all just slightly over 4 MB so they wouldn't post. I've sent a message asking for special permission and would welcome someone telling me what I can do to reduce the resolution or file size; I've still got them in the camera and there's a way to do that in there so, barring special permission or information I'll do that and pos...

Waiting for the gathering storm - Isaac 004

This should be a short entry but perhaps not; I never know how a blog will end or what direction it will take! I got out yesterday afternoon and did some repair work on an old, but sill perfectly serviceable generator for a garden supply and nursery; I got the call and by the time I'd made it there we were in the midst of a deluge. Stub, the wonder dog and I stood out in the rain and wind inspecting the machine for obvious problems - Me with an umbrella and Stub ...

Waiting for the gathering storm - Isaac 003

By: wanzewurld, 3:45 AM GMT on August 28, 2012

I went to town to take care of a few items I'd put off as long as I could but needed to take care of them before September and I supposed today was the last day I could be certain I'd have time. Me and Stub, the wonder dog rode around town looking to see how today differed from other days and most of the grocery stores, gas stations, fast food shops like McDonald's, KFC, etc were all busy with cars queued in long lines waiting for carry-out orders although ALL of t...
