Stampunk Movies

On Facebook I’m in a group calld “Steampunk Tendencies“. It’s a pretty cool group, because of the pictures and videos.

In the group, they said that the movie ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” was a steampunk movie. I saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when I was a kid, and thought it was good at the time. So I started wondering what other steampunk movies there were. So I looked it up.

Last night I watched the first half of Going Postal By Terry Pratchett. I was quite good! It’s about this con man, who gets put in charge of the Post Office instead of death. At first he resists, but then things start going pretty well. Then he starts having dreams (hallucinations?) of the people he wronged when he was a con man, including the woman he’s falling in love with.

At the same time, the Post Office competition, a kinda flashing light telegraph service, is trying to foil his post office successes. And there’s more!

Suprisingly good plot, really really nice visuals, I can’t wait to watch part two.

Happy Last Workday Before MORE Vacation!

Today three cousins arrive from Costa Rica. I’m taking vacation days while they’re here!

The Wife planned a trip to Stingray City for Saturday, but the weather is quite rough. In fact, it’s so cold and windy, i had to wear a jacket for my walk this morning. I’ve driven the van for the last two days, and am again today. The weather should be improving by Sunday.

Also, today is PAYDAY!

Have a great weekend!!!

Gotta Get Rid of Jetpack

Jetpack is a service I have for my blog. It notfies me if the site goes down, and it is giving me problems. Yesterday, I couldn’t post. This morning I couldn’t reply to a comment. Warning message said Jetpack stopped me because of some code..

Good by Jetpack!

We’ll see if I can post this…

Disc Space Usage

A month or so ago, Google was whining to me about disc space. I had to delete a bunch of files on my G-Drive. I saved google.

Now my hosting company is whining about the same thing. Apparently, this blog is now 11.7 gigabytes in size.

Wonder how I’m gonna fix this. Can’t delete anything. Lots of my old posts have the pictures missing anyway.

I dunno, gotta make a phone call today…

The sea was flatter today than yesterday. Good run and swim this morning. I weighed 180.0 on the scale this morning. Can’t wait to hit the 170’s!

Have a great day!

2018 Equinox

Today the equiox is at 11:15 EST. The sun passes over the equator and will again be in my hemisphere!

That, for me, is a good thing!

The second keyboard arrived yesterday, to replace the one with the burnt out Caps Lock light.

Caps Lock light doesn’t work on this one either. This one doesn’t repeat letters yet, but when it does, I already have my next replacement picked out.

The sea was flat calm this morning. Amazing. I had a good, long, swim and a mile and a half run. I’ll head to work for a few hours, then beach for lunch!

Have a great day!
