But yâ€™all know that I like the hotter weather. I really should live in Yuma or Gila Bend. Or even the Mojavie Desert. (Except that is a bit too hot even for me.) Still, I do like the green around here; except when it gets so dry a fire could spread like, well, wild fire. And the trees are too damned tall! I like open sky.
Got out and made another raised bed. Since that bag of cement mix broke yesterday, I just moved it all into the hole I created in the middle of the raised bed, added another bag, and wet it down pretty good. Itâ€™ll harden and may work to keep the moles out. It may not. Donâ€™t really care. Iâ€™m tired of building the things. (Only 2 more to go!)
I saw this headline: â€œStudy: Larger Wine Glasses Leads To More Drinkingâ€ and two thoughts came to mind: 1) Duh! 2) How much did we pay so someone could â€œstudyâ€ the obvious? (And a companion piece was â€œLarger Baby Bottles Making Fat Babies.â€) Iâ€™m getting to where I canâ€™t watch or read the â€œNewsâ€ anymore.
Wow. Power flickered and my computer(s) shut down. Shit. It had been sprinkling a bit earlier but didnâ€™t seem to be bad enough to flicker the power. Even looking at the real-time lightning map doesnâ€™t show anything nearby. Hmmm â€¦ Wind does kind of kick up some. (Heard some distant booms too; kind of like artillery used to sound at Camp Pendleton.)
MCARC Wednesday Evening 2-meter Chat Net tonight. Went well except reception was in and out with the wind. After, a couple of the guys helped me test the new antenna placement. Got pretty good signal reports on 28.450 USB from some; couldnâ€™t hear others. Still.
And thatâ€™s about it. A friend is coming over to visit for a few and by the time he leaves itâ€™ll be past bedtime. Iâ€™m already tired from building raised-beds today. SWMBO should be home shortly too. Yay!
