Sad News on the Chicken Front

It is a Tuesday. I don’t have much to say today. My computer still tied up. Converting MKVs ti .AVIs. I haven’t checked my email since Thursday apparently.

Hawk the rooster has disappeared. He’s been missing for about three days. I think another big rooster killed him. Now there’s just Pearl.

Slow Computers


You’ve read about how I”d like to eliminate Microsoft from my life, I seldom use my laptop any more. Of course,  I use Microsoft all over the place at work, but there’s not much I can do about that.
Anyway, my little-used laptop seems to have suddenly slowed down to a crawl. Lately, I use it mostly to convert movie files from .mkv and .mp4 to .avi. I used to be able to do about 10 45 minute programs in about 4 hours, but for the past two days, it’s been much much slower, like one 45 minute program in two hours.

And I notice this slowness elsewhere with this computer. I think It’s time for a new laptop…. Mine is ancient.

It was a good weekend. Saturday beach, Sunday boat. I felt much more inexperienced Sunday than I felt last time I went out on the boat.

Now it’s Monday, and I think tomorrow is payday!

Have ye a good week.


You’ve heard my Friday song:

Yeay! It’s Fri Hiiii Day!
The Weekend’s Here!
We’ll relax (hallelujah!  hallelujah!)
And take off our slacks  (hallelujah!  Hallelujah! )
And sit aroind the house in our rotten underwear!

Well, I didn’t write that song. It’s from a radio dj in the 90’s.

Soooooo I’ve been working on an original song. It’s not finished but it starts like this:

Friday song!
The week is gone!

Weekend’s here!
Shift ‘er out of gear.

And that’s all I have so far. But I’m working on it.

Have a good weekend! !!

Sugar Coated Shit. Bad News For Caymanians, Divers, Tourism.

indexLast night the wife and I went to the Ninth Annual Cayman Islands Tourism Association International Underwater Film Festival. At the end they announced with a happy happy video that it was the last Cayman Islands Underwater Film Festival. In 2015 it would be a different, new kind of film festival. Oh, but don’t worry, there will still be an underwater “section”.

In other words, CITA sold out on the International Underwater Film Festival, giving it to Camana Bay and Dart corporation. No doubt Dart Corporation intends to take the Underwater Film Festival and turn it into a “proppa” film festival.

The video advertisement/announcement showed movie stars and red carpets.

In 2015 I anticipate a black tie, trendy, snooty event that few can afford or desire to attend.

Bad for Caymanians, bad for divers, probably bad for tourism. Good for Dart corporation.

Sugar coated shit.

Very Disappointing.

This is Tuesday morning but yesterday was a holiday so today feels like its Monday.

Alex Harvey, My wifes bosses bosses boss’s son.

 Sunday we spent the afternoon and had dinner at a friends house, very nice. Yesterday the wife had to work and I went to the beach, then in the evening we went to the Caribbean Bar-b-cue at Macabuca restaurant.

So all in all it was a nice weekend.
