01 January 2011!
I’ve been seeing a lot of ships from my roof, I like to think that none can get by without me seeing them, but the truth is that I don’t go up there that much. The other day, I saw my first Cruise ship on the North side of Grand Cayman. I can see them from the roof when they are in town, but they never pass North, usually along the South side of the island coming from Jamaica, or from the West from I-don’t-know-where. Cargo ships are not rare, but this is the first ever cruise ship I’ve seen to the north. The cargo ship is almost exactly to the north, heading west, and the cruise ship is Northeast, heading east. The ship in the pic if you click the link above is way south, in town.
There’s a mattress in the tent, and we bring up all the blankets and pillows and it’s quite cozy in the tent.
We also have a larger tent, with 3 rooms and you can stand up an walk around in, that we use when we have visitors.
The wind is blowing pretty hard, and it looks all cloudy out the window. I am supposed to go diving today, but I am beginning to have my doubts that we’re going out on the boat.
I’ve been hearing about a big snowstorm in the US. I looked at the Virginian Pilot OnLine Newspapers Traffic Camera nearest my house in Chesapeake Virginia and it looks like they got a lot of snow. If you want to see it, look at the map below, near the bottom center there is a “pushpin” with a red arrow that I added pointing to it. Luckily, my pushpin is on top and on a ‘point’ so it’s easy to find and easy to click. Open the traffic camera link and click on the same pushpin on the webpage. That camera is only a couple hundred meters from my house, as the crow flies, (it’s about a 5 minute drive because you have to get off the highway and crap.)
Also, in December of 2009, I took some pictures of the yard, and I can really tell the difference in the plants and stuff. I am going to take the same pictures again, for a future post and comparison.
I have a little netbook, as you may recall, and I am attempting to put the Linux Operating system on it. It seems like everything works except my wireless internet connection. It is a really safe test-run, because you can boot your machine from a flash drive, and you don’t have to make any changes on your computer till you decide you like it.
We had a good Christmas and now look forward to the big New Years Party we’re having!
I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong….
