I Love Learning Things!

Came up with a follow-up to my big hit “She Tried To Leave But I Have A Digger” that I’m gonna call “Maybe I should Have Planted Her In The Garden Out Back.” Hope it does as well.


Overcast all day, but I felt only a couple of rain drops while the Dog and I were out walking. Good! Finally put new laces in my tennis shoes (to replace those the Dog chewed out one night) and we walked the back 40 for the first time in a week or more. Probably more. He saw a big bird he really wanted; but the bird wasn’t having anything to do with it.

Playing with “YouTube Embed,” a plugin for WordPress to show YouTube video’s (obviously). Locally it works great. Would work great on my self-hosted WordPress site (here). Wouldn’t work on my backup blog at wordpress.com (cause they don’t let you install plug-ins) or Blogger (cause it’s, Blogger). Sure would be a lot easier to use than all that code I have to manually add to posts though. I may install it anyway.

Plugged my backup Movie Drive into the Raspberry Pi that’s hooked to the 4th monitor in my room (I usually use it with the laptop for “radio stuff”) and it’s been playing a STTOS marathon since last Saturday (except I pause it when I hit the rack). Just now getting into Season 3. Damn. Use it as background noise during the day (I am alone here, but for the Dog, all day).

Well, it did finally start really raining again. Crap!


SWMBO got home just about the same time as the MCARC 10-meter Tuesday Evening Rag Chew so I was a bit late checking in. Would rather talk to her anyday! I could hear everyone if I used that multi-band fan dipole I built 5 or 6 years ago; but it won’t tune for transmitting. Gonna have to check that out.

And that is it again. Still raining out there.
