Not a freakin’ thing went on today. Other than the usual chores and getting out to get mail: Nothing. Took the Dog for a couple of walks where we mainly tried to dodge raindrops.
Yesterday was “better” only in that it didn’t rain and we spent as much time as possible outside. That was nice. Still kind of coolish; but not too bad. Or I wouldn’t have been out there.
The MCARC 2-meter went okay. I still have a lot of RFI up here and I’m not sure that it’s the advent of new leaves (billions of new leaves) blocking my signal. But, I’ll move my antenna and see. Getting sick and tired of crappy signals.
One of the guys on the Net (one of our New Hams) says he might have a camper I can buy from him for around $300. Cool! He’s going to send me an e-mail with his address so I can go over and look at it. Cool!
And that’s it. SWMBO is home and doing her homework. I’m gonna go lay down and read a bit.
But I kinda like the music.
I have Niece. Female: of course. Gay; who cares? Liberal; aw, fuck. She “unfollowed & unfriended” me (and probably cussed me a bit) on FB cause she posted this meme on how Whites have no culture. You know: Black=African Culture. Asian=Asian Cultere, etc. White=It’s about color. And I took exception to that and tried to start a discussion about it. No go there! You cannot “argue” with a Liberal. After she posted back “I know you’re racist so your thoughts don’t matter” I just sorta went balistic on her and told her to get back to me when she’s willing to “discuss” things without using the Race card cause I don’t agree with her.
So, that’s one less Liberal clogging up my feed. Still, it kept me up half the damned night. According to her reasoning (Black=African Culter, etc) that would make Christians a Race. Babtists a Race. Etc. Besides, would an American Born Black = AFrican Culture, or American Culture (and we do have one)? If a White is born in Japan, grows up in Japan, eats, sleeps, and shits Japanese, aren’t they Japanese?
Personally, I don’t think skin color has anything to do with what Culture one participates in. Blacks born in America should identify with American Culture. Anyone born in America should identify with American Culture. They’re American.
Of course, America is a hodge podge of all cultures of the people that immigrated here. That’s why I can enjoy Spaghetti on Mondays, Taco Tuesday, Swedish Meatballs on Wednesday, and the All You Can Eat Chinese food on Saturdays.
Without “guilt” that I’m appropriating another culture.
Other than that there is just not a whole hell of a lot going on. The 10-meter Tuesday Evening Chat Net went well but only 5 of us checked in. SWMBO is home and I think I’ll go spent some time with her before going to lay down and read a bit.
