The Wife Skitties

Here is a picture and video of the Wifes Kitties. We are trying to tame them so we can pet them and have them as outdoor cats. We can’t pet them even though we’ve been feeding them for months.
There is also sometimes another small gray one and a small black one that weren’t here this day.

Shooting Myself in the Foot?

Business has been slow. I started looking for a full time job. I have an interview today. Also, the above article has been written about my company and will be in the next Chamber of Commerce Magazine.
What if I get a job, and then business takes off at the same time?
If I get the job, I will give that job priority over the business. But I will keep the business going as a part time gig.
I hope I’m not giving up on myself too soon.

Birdsong and audio noise reduction.

Below is a video I took the other day of a bird singing. Listen to the background, you can hear all the West Bay roosters and faraway dogs.

Below is the audio extracted from the video. I reduced the background noise, so you can just hear the bird.

I have been trying to post this post since before 6AM. Blogger apparently cannot handle MOV video files. I had to change the format and reduce the video quality to that for a mobile device to get it to upload. I am feeling pretty crabby right now.

Modern Day Dinosaurs

Here’s a photo of live chitons I took yesterday on rocks in the waves. Click pic to enlarge. They are very common. I count five in this picture.Maybe there’s a half of one in the bottom middle left edge of the pic. I’m not counting that.
Below is a picture of a chiton fossil from taken from the internet HERE. Chiton fossils have been found that are 10 million years old. And their descendants are still alive today, virtually unchanged. Read more here, if you’re interested.
Here is sort of a naturally occurring bonsai tree. These plants barely eke out a living in the rock. Searing sun in hot rock, hardly any rain. I took this picture today as well, about 10 meters from the chitons. These are all over the place too.
No point to be made today (maybe), just sharing some photos I took yesterday!


Too Slow

This month, I have not had enough business to pay my bills next month.
This is the worst month yet since I started my business.
I have savings in the bank, and won’t die from this. But I have a bad attitude about the whole thing. Fear, anger, sadness.
