beetch dadi!

Today Trinity and I went to the beetch and played with the horseshoe crabs, Spirling, Minnows, sand, hermit crabs, and other yucky sea life.  The tide was coming in when we got there and we were able to enjoy the low water level in some areas of the beetch.

There were locals there catching fish and shrimp for bait that they will use for fishing tomorrow.  There were sooo many shrimp in the shallow water being pushed into the marshland with the tide.  It was interesting to me to see tiny shrimp and fish riding the tide.  Be gentle, I am a fella that is still “green” to this area.

Perhaps tomorrow, I will try and post some more recent images of us.

It is HOT here.  Although the breeze did just start to pickup and cool the interior of the house to below 90 degrees.  If anyone wants to volunteer to come and fan us, we would appreciate it immensely.

We do have some electric fans in the house that are being used now.  I have a small cicular fan that acts as if it has the Napoleon complex.  It blows air soo fast that it takes an effort to sleep in front of its wind-tunnel-ness.  SAM likes the fan that was given to us by Alondra because it oscillates.  I don’t like it because of that fact.  It does have a knob that will let it blow in one direction.  I figure that if you want the fan to blow air over your body, aim it towards you.  If you don’t want it to blow air over your body, aim it elsewhere.  Duh!  Just like in a car with air vents.  Aim them on you to get dry eyeballs, away from you to avoid an eyedrop dependency.

C’est la Vie!

Email notifications work now.

I was convinced that there was a simple explanation to why it didn’t work.

I don’t know what I am doing!

Please let me know that you are interested in this effort of mine. 

This is like an answering machine.  We buy answering machines so that our friends/family/enemies can contact/annoy us.  I do this not for the shear enjoyment of playing on my Apple computer, but also to solicit some feedback from my friends/family/enemies to keep in contact with what is going on.

Email updates don’t work.

At least not yet.  I hope to edit some code when I get home this afternoon. 

Keep trying though.  When it works, you’ll know. 

Make a comment and let me know that you are interested in updates and I will send them to you manually.

I just got this thing to work last night, so be patient, Dag-Nabit!

My cousin Lawrence Hill

My cousin has been the subject of much media coverage in his home state of AZ.

Before I go much further with this, let me explain that although I know that Lawrence in my cousin, he probably has no clue that I exist.  The last time I saw him he was “knee high to a grasshopper”.  Waay back during the season 1989-1990, I lived in San Bernardino, CA.  Lawrence’s parent’s Janet and Larry lived in Rialto (just down the street).  It was then that I got to know little-bitty Lawrence and his younger brother Lorenzo.

I left CA during May of 1990, citing irreconcilable differences with the culture of So. Cali.  That was the last time I saw the young soon-to-be college basketball star Lawrence.  I am as impressed as I am sure his parents are that he has been doing so well in school and on the court. 

Maybe one day I will be one of those loser family members that is the subject of discussions surrounding the unknown familial periphery of a sports star.  (what does that mean?)

I hope that when/if he decides to accept a well paid position as a member of a sports conglomerate, we don’t have to discuss my inability to accept the willingness of people to believe that an individual can EARN millions of dollars playing a game.

Care to fight about this? Email or post a comment.

Aha!

If you are wondering where the “old” website is, then click here.

I’ve been playing around on the computer.  I think I have learned something.

Uhhh, this is another field on the default template that allows an “Extended Entry”.  I’m not sure what this is, but I type anyway.
