Just this evening a friend sent me this link: http://www.superbrightleds.com/led_prods.htm. Considering how long they burn, he did the math on a hypothetical couple of bulbs, one incandescent, one LED, and came up with a huge savings (assuming if you keep buying a new incandescent bulb every time it burns out to keep burning beside the equivalent LED bulb.)

How come you could all get in ? I couldn't load mom at all for the last few days.

I just found a wonderful quote from a Prime Minister. I wish the current ones would use it...

'The Duke of Wellington presents his compliments to Mr.-----, and declines to interfere in circumstances over which he has no control.'

You bet he does! Raparie has had a fascination with edged objects ever since his biological mother refused to knives on the dinner (for YEARS!) after she found that he and his brothers had, one evening, filched theirs and were "sword fighting" with them in the bedroom. Something about the sound of clanging steel attracts parental types....

SRS, I'm in the process of buying disaster supplies at work and I'm going to get a couple or three LED lanterns. I'm also looking into getting LED lamps for staff desks, instead of using the fluorscent lights way up in the 15' ceilings in administration (for one thing, every time we need to change a bulb we have to call the electricans!).

Did Amos say he was going to Houston?? You don't think...he's going to...join...the MOB, do you?

Raparie, this age-old canard against your mother must stop. The REAL reason she was upset with you is that you wouldn't practice spelling your name correctly.

Ha...I got 300.

re: cell phones - why do so many people answer their cell phone - then the first thing out of their mouths are "I can't talk now - can I call you back?" DON'T ANSWER THE DAMN THING IF YOU "CAN'T TALK NOW"!!!! ESPECIALLY when you have voice mail.

drives me nuts.

I know lots of people who will call you, and if you don't answer, they'll call back two minutes later, again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again......

Ten seconds to say you'll call back to save your sanity is not much really .


Amos is off to hitch a lift off a passing spacecraft in Houston. Apparently all the dolphins have gone.....

My wife gets wrong numbers on her cell phone. Then they press the redial button and are annoyed to get the same wrong number. Her response is to question their intelligence and that of their ancestors.

Amos is off to Houston -- Whitney Houston. Why this is I do not know -- perhaps something about Bobby Brown and his (Amos') infatuation with Whitney.

Anyone that did that to me would regret it. probably about the third call.

Be aware that next generation's automobiles will be more self aware than most people:

SELF-MONITORING CARS TO DETECT OWN FAULTS, December 05
Discovery News has reported a major leap forward in automobile technology: future cars will be able to diagnose and monitor their faults. According to the report, the new technology will determine which parts are damaged and state how long they can last. Scientists are aiming to make vehicles equipped with this facility available in the next few years.

Hi, Mom!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've been busy trying to get my new chrono-spatial anomaly generator working. My old one gave up the ghost last week and it was going to cost more to get it repaired than what I originally paid for the thing. Money's a bit too tight to buy a new one right now, so I bought a kit from Radio Shack. It has all the features of the most expensive prefab models for about half the price. Problem is, it's not working right.   It'll send stuff wherever and whenever for a few milliseconds, but then it cycles back to plain old here and now. It's very frustrating. I'm sure I put everything together correctly. Maybe they accidentally sold me the Canadian version (208V) instead of the U.S. version (240V). Do you know where Gluon is? Maybe he could figure it out.

It has been difficult to load today, and there were difficult times over the last couple of days. Just keep trying.

BWL, I'm going to be replacing the hard drive in a computer of a friend this week. I hope that's all that is wrong with it (I think they got something virus or worm-wise in there so nasty that it ate up the registry and such, and the computer got moved a lot and the old hard drive was small and old. . . And $50-60 for a new small drive is still less expensive than buying a new computer.

freds, I let the dogs sleep in the house tonight (it got so cold out that the garage is not a comfortable venue), so don't try coming by here looking for anything with DNA that might offend you. These two girls will tear you ear from navel (I heard you don't have any limbs).

You don't know what a dalek is! you poor, deprived soul! Daleks


From Wikpedia.

The Daleks (pronounced "DAH-lecks" or "DAH-licks"; IPA: 'dɑːlɛks) are a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants from the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The mutated descendants of the Kaled people (originally refered to as "Dals") of the planet Skaro, they travel around in tank-like mechanical casings, a ruthless race bent on universal conquest and domination, utterly without pity, compassion or remorse. They are also, collectively, the greatest alien adversaries of the Time Lord known as the Doctor. Their most infamous catchphrase is "EX-TER-MIN-ATE!", with each syllable individually screeched in a frantic electronic voice (download sample). Other common utterances include "I (or WE) OBEY!" to any command given by a superior.

The Daleks were created by writer Terry Nation and BBC designer Raymond Cusick and were first introduced in December 1963 in the second Doctor Who serial. They became an immediate hit with the viewing audience, featuring in many subsequent serials. They have become synonymous with Doctor Who and their behaviour and catchphrases are part of British popular culture.

The word "Dalek" has entered the Oxford English Dictionary and other major dictionaries (the Collins Dictionary defines it rather broadly as "any of a set of fictional robot-like creations that are aggressive, mobile, and produce rasping staccato speech"). It is also a trademark, having first been registered by the BBC in 1964 to protect its lucrative range of Dalek merchandise.

The term is sometimes used in a metaphorical sense to describe people, usually figures in authority, who act like robots unable to break their programming. John Birt, the controversial ex-Director-General of the BBC, was called a "croak-voiced Dalek" by playwright Dennis Potter in August 1993. The Daleks even appeared on a postage stamp celebrating British popular culture in 1999, photographed by Lord Snowdon.

Sorry, never watched Dr. Who. In fact, I very rarely watch much television at all -- just the weather and the evening news (local and national) while eating dinner (and usually the TV is muted until something that appears interesting shows on the screen). Don't go to movies very much, either -- last one I saw was the second Harry Potter flick. I have the third HP movie on DVD, but I haven't bothered to set up the DVD player I bought two years ago yet.

I do have my small sword, though. It's on the wall, along with a percussion-lock .45 Kentucky-style pistol, all set for my "Stand and Deliver!" gig to start. I even have a tricorn hat for it!

If I only had a blunderbuss, I could be a REAL dashing highwayman. One who would rob the men, kiss the ladies, and give all the money I stole to the poor, who would then honor me with flowers as I was taken to be turned off at Tyburn. And a horse. A horse would facilitate the chases across the countryside under the full moon to the Inn where the innkeeper's daughter fair would be pining for me and where her father would betray me to the King (see Tyburn, above) and later realize that by doing so he had driven his only daughter, the joy of the his heart, to cast herself from the bridge and into the swirling maelstrom below at the same time I was hung at Tyburn.

Only thing a blunderbuss would be good for here is to throw on the fire to keep us warm. Texas is unaccustomed to 12 degree nights, especially when last Saturday it reached 90. No opportunity to acclimate to the season when it does that in the space of five days.

My poor outside doggies have been cooped up in the house, their only entertainment to occasionally harass the cats. Mom, make Amos share some of his warm weather please, so my dogs can go back outside. They're so sweet, but they fart all of the time and it gets just a tad close in my office when they insist on sleeping beside my chair.

Them highwaymen sure as heck didn't use any of MY swords, no matter WHAT Bunn says! They might have carried rapiers, true, but during the 18th Century it's not probable since by then the smallsword had pretty much replaced the rapier. The rapier was popular during Shakespeare's time:

Merchat: V, 1: Here, stand behind this bulk; straight will he come: Wear thy good rapier bare, and put it home.

Merry Wives: II, III: By gar, de herring is no dead so as I vill kill him. Take your rapier, Jack; I vill tell you how I vill kill him.

Measure: IV, II: Then have we young Dizy, and young Master Deep-vow, and Master Copperspur, and Master Starve-lackey the rapier and dagger man....

Henry V, II, I: If you grow foul with me, Pistol, I will scour you with my rapier

LLL, I, II: O well-knit Samson! strong-jointed Samson! I do excel thee in my rapier as much as thou didst me in carrying gates.

R&J, I, V: Fetch me my rapier, boy. (Tybalt had a sort of caddy, I guess, to carry his rapier-bag.)

Hamlet, V, II: Ham. What is his weapon? Osr. Rapier and dagger. Ham. That is two of his weapons; but well.

And I can give you about twenty more such references. But during the 18th Century the rapier had given way to the smallsword (or, as it is also known, the courtsword).

Which is not to say that rapiers were completely passe -- just that gentlemen highwaymen did not, in all probability, use them. They simply weren't FASHION, my dear!

Been repairing a friend's computer. She's back online now so she can conduct her job search and check her email. She was experimenting with making a bread pudding (hadn't made it before) as I worked. I stood up to look into the kitchen and was astonished to see the pan filled with bread. At my urgings we adjusted the ingredients (only 2 cups of bread, not 8) and adjusted it to accomodate the extra eggs. Too much nutmeg it in, but other than that it was delicious. The pecans were a nice idea. I had a bowl of pudding before we all headed out after and afternoon well-spent.
