It was a day of light rain that turned highly energetic after sundown. At a guess. Driving back from Raleigh, close to midnight, it was squint and slow down as the windshield wipers kept trying to keep up with the ferocious rhythms of rain.

But oh, my sibs, what a purely loverly evening I had at the Hibernian Irish Pub, sitting with Abbey Sale, our own renowned expert on old ballads both clean and soiled, and half a dozen other rare birds taking turns bringing old songs back to life. Good, sturdy, rollicking ones, plaintive ones, tragic ones, jolly ones. Two Guinesses later, the soul was replete with the joy of these brave voices restoring the glow of life to these pale shadows from long ago. Really, truly, Abby and his gang are gems in the wilderness. Amos is happy.

Hi, Mom! Half-and-half is supposedly 50% milk and 50% cream, right? Well, which half comes first, the cream or the milk? If you were to mix a cup of half-and-half with a cup of whole milk, would you get a pint of quarter-and-three-quarters or a pint of three-quarters-and-a-quarter?

Amos, are you getting rained on down there? Hopefully no freezing rain or ice.
Ach, gnu, and ChanteyLass, we're in for it. And frogprince must be getting hit with it already.

Amos, having an endoscopy is a good idea for GI bleeding. They could do a colonoscopy at the same time and meet in the middle, kinda like the golden spike at Promontory Point, Utah. Or they could float a little camera all the way through you, recording everything as it goes (New York Times review: "What a shitty first attempt! Moving in concept, but this movie is just plain crap.")

Well, I stayed on the wagon for two whole days and felt a mess better. Next week they'll want to run a damn camera down my upper GI to see if it ;leaks but I think I am out of the woods. It was a bumpy day or two, I'll tell you. I think it was Trump's fault.

Tomorrow I start my invasion of Norway. Folks from there pillaged, looted, rapined, and burned the homes of some of my ancestors back a few years ago1 and we want the junk back, with interest. Of course, we did the same thing to them a year or so later. Then they came back to us, and we did them, and pretty soon we were all drinking mead together and alternately paying for the drinks. But tomorrow I go to SLC to fly to Chicago to fly to Stockholm on Wednesday to fly to Oslo (O'Slo if you're Irish) to take the train to Bergen to take a ship up around to Kirkenes and then back to Bergen where we take a plane to Copenhagen to fly to Chicago from which Pat and I will take a plane to fly back to SLC and take a bus back home on April 4. Then two days later Pat has surgery. Gonna be a fun trip, just like last year's to Hawai'i. But my axe is sharpened and my sword is unbent and the teeth marks are out the edge of my shield (I'm actually a berserker) and I'm sort of ready to go.

Here, Mom, have a bump back up to the top. Yeah, I know you won't fall off the page until 9:18 in the morning, but with the change to daylight saving time the other kids might either oversleep or run around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to find that hour that's gone missing.

Amos, you're in the southland now. Forget fancy words like "syncope". The proper southern term for the affliction is "falling out".

(Not to be confused with a similarly named affliction resulting from an ill-fitting brassiere.)

Yes, but they're not paid as well. And there are snotty-nosed little brats, leaky diapers, irate patrons, low budgets, being coughed on -- and that's in the academic world. It's worse for public librarians.

Rap is experiencing the sad realization that a vigorous lifetime of lifting heavy library books takes a toll. No one seems to realize the physical endurance, the balance, the upper body strength and manual dexterity required to work in a business whose major activity is moving tons of paper every year. Librarians might as well be stevedores.

By the way, this video was filmed at the Cherry Springs Trail -- a spot which attacks MANY walkers -- and which is not considered a hot spot for the things in the video. It is, however, a nice place for someone in shirtsleeves to be filmed, if they don't mind a few mosquitoes.

P.S. Can't you guys take a hint? gnu's Year Day Eve not obvious enough? Not that I am grovelling for attention or anything like that. I just figure I deserve a few, "Holy crap! You actually lived that long after the abuse you put yourself through?"s.

This one is fiberglass and has saw-like edges on both ends -- sharp teeth that make you appreciate what padding there is. Maybe I can reuse it as a flow diverter for a downspout or something.

Modern day splints don't even make good firewood. Back in the days when splints were made of wood, you healed up, took the splint off, and used it to cook a batch of biscuits in the wood-burning stove. Try that nowadays, and all you get is a bunch of poisonous fumes, a hefty fine for air pollution, and biscuits that taste of a cocktail of burnt polymers.

Same deal with crutches. Toss a pair of aluminum crutches in the fireplace and see how much warmer the room gets.

What? Your dogs don't know how to build a fort from cardboard and styrofoam? Mine does. Of course, you have to expand the definition of "building a fort" to include chewing, shredding and spreading all over the yard. "Gee, Dad, looks like a fort to me! See how I've incorporated that hole I dug yesterday into the design? It's the dungeon."

Today I disturbed dust and dog hair as (with the help of my ex) we assembled a new computer desk with a crank for raising and lowering. This work station will let me stand and work and feel better than when I sit all day long at work then come home and sit some more to work on my own stuff.

Amazing how many pieces of equipment are part of this setup. Computer and power supply, printer, scanner, 2 monitors, 2 keyboards and 2 mouse (don't ask) and several external drives. A box for converting VHS tapes to digital AVI files, USB hub, two VHS players, and a whole bunch of stuff I'm forgetting. Only knocked over one thing so far (knock wood). Some of those external drives need to be retired, once I figure out if they all work and what's in them.

MOM probably wouldn't be happy to know that there's still a mess in the den. Large pieces of cardboard and styrofoam packing materials that go to waste because there are no children here to build a fort behind the sofa or in their room.

Hi Mom and kids! Try this: Next time you eat in some presumptuous restaurant that prints its menu prices as whole numbers without any currency symbols ("Ribeye Steak 15" instead of "Ribeye Steak $15.00"), try to pay for it using interesting pebbles instead of money. Then, when the server sees fifteen rocks on the little bill plate and asks, "What's this?" just tell him, "The menu said the steak was 'fifteen', not 'fifteen dollars'. If you want to be paid with money, print a menu that has prices in dollars and cents, like every other business in the country!"

Got my property tax bill. The new aerial photography thingy they have in place works great! They were able to see that I hired out the replacement my front and rear steps with precast Portland Cement concrete steps with nice aluminum railings, the addition of vinyl siding on my garage, and the installation a ********** **** **** (I have my reason for the *s). All that from an eye in the sky! My property assessment increased by $10,300! Mum's, next door, went up $300. So, I added up my improvements and they totalled $9997.96. They overvalued the improvements by $2.14. But HEY! That's from way up in a heavier than air flying machine so I ain't gonna ask fer no review of the change. Ask the gubmint ANYthong and yer just askin' fer yer troubles eh? On top of that, my bill increased by $197.69 so that's peanuts compared to what they would do if I dared to ask them "WTF? You wanna buy the sumbitch for the assessed value right now in THIS housing market you fuckin assholes?" You can see my point, I am sure. On the other hand, if I did want to sell or had to sell, the increase in the assessed value gives me a better position in the market place so getting screwed to the tune of ONLY $200 a year is a hell of a bargain and, these days, finding anything that's a bargain when it comes to the gubmint is as rare as hen's teets.
